Should You Hire a Pro?
Managing an income property can be a big task, especially if it is your first investment to date. Perhaps you’ve been doing this awhile and want to expand your investments or perhaps you’ve tried managing your rental yourself and are frustrated. Either way, you’re here because you’ve been thinking “Should I hire a pro?”.
Hiring a professional management company is a big decision, as if deciding which company to choose. There are some basic question you need to ask yourself to decide if you really need us. First, do you have the time to properly manage your rental or even multiple rentals? Keeping your property maintained and occupied, not to mention keeping your tenant happy, can be a full-time job. We know, it’s ours! If you can’t do the job right, it may be time to call us to avoid losing money, an unhappy tenant and possible damages to your income property.
Also, do you have the knowledge required to manage your own property? We’re not talking collecting rent here, but more along the lines of laws and codes. Not having the proper backup, such as an attorney, can quickly cost you. A professional company, such as Southern, will have the resources to keep you, your tenant and your property protected.
