3 Hobbies That Will Improve Your Property Management Skills

Down time is irreplaceable, but what if we told you your hobbies could make you more successful at work? Scott Safadi of Cal Bay Property Management recommends picking up a hobby or two that can help with your property management skills. Here's what he suggests:

Learn a foreign language.

Not only will picking up a new language make you more cultured and worldly, it'll make you that much more prepared to deal with foreign language-speaking prospective tenants. Spanish is the fastest spreading language in the United States, and knowing at least a few conversational phrases could win over a new tenant!

Get involved with Toastmasters.

Even if you don't have a Best Man speech to prepare for, Toastmasters can be a great way to push yourself out of your comfort zone. And that's a skill you'll need to be a truly great property manager! Pick up tips on speaking with strangers and commanding a room. You'll be a better leader and speaker!

Nurture your green thumb.

With all the landscaping needed on the average rental property, it pays to know a little about gardening. While it's silly to expect you'll take over the landscaping yourself, the tips and tricks you learn while gardening in your free time can better inform decisions you make about hiring a gardener. Plus, it's peaceful and you can create something beautiful! What's not to love?
