When you work with a professional property management company, you’re enlisting a knowledgeable and experienced partner who will protect your investment and help you earn more income on your asset. You should expect a high level of service and excellent communication from your property manager.
What to Expect: Responsiveness and Communication
You can expect your property manager to be available and accessible to you and your tenants. A good property manager will respond to your needs and your questions right away. Communication will also be open and flowing both ways. Most property management companies utilize technology and have an online owner’s portal where you’ll be able to access information about your property and your tenants. You can use that portal to check invoices and maintenance requests. You can keep up with rent receipts and send messages to your management team. Your tenants will also benefit from their own portal, where they can pay rent online and submit repair requests.
What to Expect: Tenant Screening and Placement
One of the best reasons to work with a professional property manager is their skill and efficiency with the leasing process. Finding the right tenant can be a challenge, and you can expect your property manager to locate the best possible tenants for your property through competitive pricing, strategic marketing, and a thorough screening process. Your property manager will understand and comply with all fair housing laws while checking every detail of a tenant’s background. At the end of the process, you can expect a tenant who pays rent on time, takes care of your home, and complies with the terms of the lease.
What to Expect: Legal Knowledge
Owning rental property comes with risk and liability. You can expect your property manager to limit that risk for you. Property managers stay up to date with all the local, state, and federal laws that pertain to your investment home. Make sure you work with a property manager who takes continuing education and professional development seriously.
