Four Advantages to Hiring a Property Manager
Four Advantages to Hiring a Property Manager ~ Southern Residential Leasing
Have you purchased or are thinking about purchasing an investment property? Hiring a property manager is one of the smartest things you can do with your new home. Property managers offer peace of mind when it comes to handling your home, making it one less thing you have to worry about. In addition to being cost-effective, property managers handle all aspects of your home, from eviction notices to small maintenance issues. Keep reading below to learn about four advantages to hiring a property manager.
- When something breaks or a pipe leaks, property managers offer 24/7 emergency service – peace of mind for you and your tenant. If you live far away from your property and aren’t there to coordinate everything, it can be a little stressful. When you hire a property manager, you and your tenant can rest assured knowing repairs are quickly taken care of. Property managers maintain great records as well. They track everything from rent to repairs so you don’t have to.
- Screening potential tenants can be a tedious process. Fortunately, property managers have all the right systems in place. Property managers screen tenants’ credit history, criminal background, and even Meghan’s Law. They know exactly what to look for so you’ll have peace of mind knowing they’ll place the right tenant into your home.
- In addition to screening tenants, property managers also schedule showings to prospective tenants. They’re highly knowledgeable about the ins and outs of your home and can answer any questions tenants may have. Property managers also meet with HUD and Township inspectors. This makes sure they’re up to date on yearly rental licenses, local ordinances, and state laws and regulations.
- Finally, property managers are more affordable than you might think. Time is extremely valuable, and when it comes to managing your property, a lot of time is spent. Think about your property’s location: depending on the climate, seasonal upkeep can be frequent and costly. If your market also lends itself to a high turnaround, your property manager may be preparing to show and lease your home year round. These small acts take up a lot of your time but are something a property manager is happy to take care of.
