Puget Sound Landlord and Investor Orgs

Here are some quick links to my favorite local landlord organizations:

Rental Housing Association of Puget Sound - As a member, I use them for my lease forms, tenant screenings, etc. The group is well organized, well funded, and provides great service to its members at an affordable cost.

Washington Landlord Assocation - Similar to RHA, but covering more areas.  Also seems a little less formal an organization.  The provide forms, screening, and the really great benefit, their Vacation Watch Service.

Seattle REAPS (Real Estate Association of Puget Sound) - is aimed at 'investors', which include flippers, developers, etc., not just landlords.  They provide education, a library, and good networking opportunities.

Washington State Tenants Union - OK, it might be a stretch to call this a landlord organization. But, as a landlord, I think it makes sense to visit the site regularly and see what issues are important to the TU. As a former tenant, who had a terrible landlord, I'm not against a strong tenant advocacy organization. I think its great to have tenants who are educated to landlord responsibilities... and their own.

If you know of another organization I should add to the list, let me know.

KUDOS!!!  Real estate agents who sell investment who do not refer them to a local property manager needs to have these resources for their area at hand to advise their clients.  These will get landlords started in the right direction and some "good press" for the agent's involvement in the deal for the new landlord won't hurt!!!
