Property Management – What You Need to Know
Monday, 2nd November, 2015

Leasing out your property for the first time can be an overwhelming experience if you go it alone. Fortunately, experienced and caring property management can provide the advice you need to protect your property and generate the income you seek.

What Property Managers Do

Property managers provide a wide range of professional services so you can rest easy and be assured that your property is well cared for with your best interests in mind. Your property manager can provide you with the best tenants, collect the rent and make sure that renters comply with the rules and regulations of your community. They maintain your property with preventative maintenance, make repairs when necessary and provide routine cleaning services if you wish. Property managers know how to maximise your returns while minimising your risk, whatever the current market conditions.

Choosing the Right Property Manager

While property managers may provide similar services, not all property managers are the same. It is important to choose a property manager who you can trust to give you the best advice and services. Your property manager should be familiar with your geographic area and experienced in handling similar properties. A good property manager will ask what you want to achieve with your investment and have a strong grasp of the local market in order to make the best recommendations to meet your goals. Most important, the property manager you choose should be a caring professional who will listen to your concerns and handle your property inspections personally.

Strong Property Management Support

When you hire a property manager, you are not just hiring an individual. You are also hiring the company that backs the property management services. Look for a company that has a low property-to-manager ratio and a low staff turnover so your property will get all the attention it deserves. Your property management company should maintain a large database of qualified tenants, and provide access to high-quality tenants through relocation services. Advanced technology with the latest software and systems can support the management of your property. A property management company with strong roots in the community will have a long roster of local contractors at its fingertips to provide your property with the prompt maintenance you expect.
