Pro Tips: The Benefits of Hiring a Property Manager
The Benefits of Hiring a Property Manager
STOP. If you’re reading past the headline, the chances are…you’re thinking about hiring a property manager. Great! If this is you, you’ve likely had a bad experience with your tenants OR you’re simply tired of having to deal with the day-to-day challenges of being a landlord. It’s hard – we KNOW that more than anyone, we have first experience with that, and we deal with it on a daily basis. So let us walk through a few benefits of hiring a property manager, and why you should definitely consider trying it out!
Higher Quality Tenants
A few weeks ago we wrote about the value of tenant screening – read the full scoop on this topic, here. If you don’t have time to read about our screening process, think of it this way – unless a house has a strong foundation, it will collapse. The goal of tenant screening is to build a strong foundation from the beginning – rather than filling in vacancies as quickly as possible, the goals I to find the best candidates for the property. We’ll be honest, we’ve processed over a thousand applications since the time we opened shop. We’ve made mistakes, we’ve learned from our mistakes, and nowadays we can quickly dig for the real facts about interested parties and analyze that information for any red flags.
Time Is Money, Save Your Money
One of the biggest reasons many choose to opt out of hiring a property manager is because they would rather not pay a management fee. However, when you consider all the time you will save by hiring a property manager – the investment is actually well worth it. Why? Because YOU don’t have to deal with evictions and attending court hearings, YOU don’t have to handle the legality of security deposits, YOU don’t have to collect rent, and YOU don’t have to do the quarterly inspections. All of that is on us. Not a bad deal, right? Right.
The nice thing about hiring a property manager is that you can invest wherever you want without the constraint of needing to be near your properties. We have local owners, we have owners who are out of state, we even have owners out of the country! The key to this is trust; we work hard to earn your trust because our owners and investors are what is keeping our business alive.
We Work For YOU
As property managers, the dynamic between maintaining a healthy relationship between our owners and our tenants can sometimes be challenging. But we’ll be straightforward, we don’t work for the tenants – we work for YOU. You are always our number one priority from start-to-finish. Our intention is to prioritize YOUR happiness and satisfaction.
On a final note, picture this – less stress, convenience, and a better return on investment. If you’re still hesitant, you can always discuss different options that would work best for you. As mentioned, we understand the importance of building trust and we would be more than happy to build the initial connection – and if you decide to continue to manage your properties on your own, fine. But you’ll never know what experience you’ll have until you give it a shot. If you’re interested in having us manage your properties, feel free to fill out the management quote form here.
