For those among us who are the do-it-yourself kind of people, the idea of managing your own property might seem like a good idea. After all, a penny saved is a penny earned, right? Well, when it comes to property management, that cliché really ought to be replaced with another one: penny wise and pound foolish. Unless you have years of experience as well as a wealth of time and resources to devote to it, property management might not be the best choice for a do-it-yourself project. In the majority of cases, you’ll find that enlisting the services of a professional property management company will be highly advantageous.
When it comes to saving time, effort, and money, along with avoiding stress and headaches, a professional property management company is truly worth its weight in gold. Consider, first of all, the process of collecting rent from tenants. This can be a difficult and time-consuming process, and it can be very frustrating if you try to do it yourself week after week, month after month. A professional property management team will know the ins and outs of rent collection: how to get it on time, and how to enforce the terms of the lease when payments are late or nonexistent. By employing the services of professional property management, you’ll have the advantage of a team with expertise in the law as it relates to rent collection.
There can also be advantages in terms of decreased maintenance and repair costs on the property. Crossing your fingers and flipping through the phone book to find a competent, trustworthy repair team is a hit-or-miss proposition, at best. Professional property management organizations, in contrast, typically have access to an in-house maintenance staff and/or a reliable network of licensed, insured, and bonded contractors; by engaging the services of the management organization, you’ll have access to those contractors too. If you’re an out-of-area property owner, then hiring a property management organization with local contacts can be especially advantageous. With volume discounts and a deep understanding of maintenance issues, property management companies are in an ideal position to save you the hassle and expense of trying to manage it all yourself.
Yet another advantage is the decrease in tenant turnover that generally occurs when a professional property management organization is used. Happy tenants tend to stick around, and this means that you’ll save the time and expense of screening for new tenants. A quality property management company, with its systematic approach and years of experience, will excel at keeping tenants satisfied and well cared for. Meanwhile, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes with having a well-oiled machine at your service, ready to troubleshoot problems pertaining to the property and tenants.
