Hiring a property management company is a big decision for any property owner. While considering your options, it's important to understand how a management company can save you time, money, and significant frustration. The following outline provides some important questions to ask when hiring a manager for your commercial or residential property.
What services are offered by the management company?
A property manager's primary role is to deal directly with current and potential tenants. This includes many responsibilities such as marketing the property and conducting tours for prospective tenants, collecting rent, coordinating maintenance requests and handling repairs, responding to compaints, avoiding bad tenants while maintaining good tenants, and pursuing evictions should the need arise.
When is the right time to hire a management company?
Whether you own a single unit or several properties, when you feel you no longer have the time or desire to effectively manage your real estate a property manager can help.
