    3. Screen potential tenants thoroughly by checking their credit history, rental history, and employment status to ensure they are financially stable and responsible.

    4. Use a clear and comprehensive lease agreement that outlines all of the terms and conditions of the tenancy, including rent payment, security deposit, late fees, and maintenance responsibilities.

    5. Be responsive to tenant inquiries and concerns, and maintain the property to a high standard to encourage tenants to renew their lease and recommend your property to others.

    6. Create a maintenance and repair plan for the property, and respond promptly to tenant requests to fix any issues that arise.

    7. Purchase adequate insurance coverage, including liability insurance, property insurance, and flood insurance if applicable, to protect your investment and mitigate potential risks.

    8. Use a variety of marketing channels to promote your rental property, such as online listings, social media, and word-of-mouth referrals.

    9. Have clear procedures in place for handling late rent payments or property damage, and be consistent in enforcing them.

    10. If necessary, follow legal procedures carefully when evicting a tenant to avoid any legal repercussions or damage to your reputation.
