This observation comes from my experience as a close neighbor of a property owned by Beckett. I cannot comment directly on their quality of service, however they seem to not bother about screening renters properly nor actually fixing the property up as they claim. They snatch up foreclosures at bargain basement prices, throw some paint on them, and call it done. Crumbling roofs, mold and larger issues that would be caught by traditional inspections are ignored. Tenants don't care about the property upkeep and maintenance, fill the yards with waste, let alone ""neighborly conduct""- and it becomes a blight in the neighborhood. If they have rules in that regard, they aren't enforced. Please know that this is not a comment on renters in general but on the few that I've experienced.
Seems they are more concerned about making money short-term off of people desperate to rent somewhere than improving lives, homes and neighborhoods- which they are in the position to do if they did it right. Unfortunately now I'm seeing their signs everywhere. Something stinks here... It's really unfortunate and I have a feeling this bubble will burst someday as it will only get worse with the addition of more properties.
Pros: May be easy to rent from but....
Cons: Bad for renters, bad for neighborhoods
