One of the biggest decisions you'll make as a property owner is whether you should hire a property management company. Many owners/investors manage properties on their own. Sometimes Property Owners need more help, and that's when a property management company might make sense.
Property management companies can be a huge asset to your business. You may ask yourself “What Does a Property Management Company do? Property Management companies deal directly with prospects and tenants, saving you time and worry over marketing your rentals, collecting rent, handling maintenance and repair issues, responding to tenant complaints, and even pursuing evictions. Plus, a good management company brings its know-how and experience to your property, giving you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your investment is in good hands. Finally, a management company is an independent contractor, so you avoid the hassles of being an employer.
Now another big question is “When Should I Hire A Property Management Company?” Hiring a property management company has many advantages. Consider the following factors to determine if hiring a property management company would be a good decision for your business.
You should consider hiring a property management company if:
You have lots of properties or rental units. The more rental properties you own and the more units they contain, the more you're likely to benefit from a management company.
You don't live near your rental property. If your rental property is located far from where you live, hiring a property management company can be invaluable in dealing with the many issues that you will not be able to handle from afar.
You're not interested in hands-on management. Many Property Owners look forward to the challenge of finding good tenants and the rewards of maintaining a safe and attractive property on their own. But if you view rental property ownership strictly as an investment and want little or nothing to do with the day-to-day management of your properties, consider hiring help to manage your property.
Your time is limited. Even if you enjoy hands-on management, you may not have much time to devote to your business, especially if managing your properties isn't your day job. And if you prefer to spend your time growing your business, including searching for new properties, arranging financing for renovations, or changing your business structure, then a management company may be a good way to spend your money.
