Maria Napolitano - Tuesday, April 20, 2021

Property management is much more than just being a good landlord. It requires an in-depth understanding of market dynamics, tenant relationships, and excellent asset management. If you are a DIY landlord and you have been juggling your personal and professional life at the same time – it’s about time you get some help.  

We Have Some Examples of Why should you use a professional property manager?
Managing your rental property on your own is a game of nerves. You need to create a balance between your work, family life, expanding your business, managing account, and emergencies related to the property. And let’s not forget the due diligence and paperwork that comes with managing a property.
Property management services are not just about managing things well. They are about building relationships with the tenants and giving you positive memories and experiences.

There are several benefits of having a property manager. Here are some reasons why you need a professional by your side.  

1. Expertise Above All

Imagine a situation where you need to refer someone to a doctor so that they can get their heart checked. Will it be wise of you to send them to the random uncle living down the street? NO! This is precisely what happens when you try to juggle things on your own or hire someone who isn’t exactly an expert.

We specialize in making life easier for our clients and their tenants. If you are a newbie real estate investor, you might end up making mistakes that could harm your business. There will be times when you might get frustrated when things are not happening the way you expected them to. That’s why you need someone who has experience in taking care of the different facets associated with rental asset management. From managing accounts to complying with local laws, we’ve got you covered.

2. Fewer Chances of Making Mistakes

A professional is less likely to make mistakes, since they have experience in the field, compared to a DIY landlord who juggles his or her personal and work life while managing the property.  A novice landlord can be unaware of the several loopholes that are present in the system and could end up leaving money on the table – not wise at all!  

The most critical mistake a newbie investor can make is the improper screening of tenants. In property management, doing your homework is essential. Instead of trying to save money, you might end up losing it, plus the stress – which is more hurtful, trust us!

3.  Free Up Your Time

Ask yourself, how much is your time worth, and what are you getting in return by managing your property? Do you think it is worth the mistakes you might end up making because of inexperience?
Landlords who manage their property usually always run short on time. It is not only costing you money, but you end up ‘paying’ in different ways.  How? Well, let me explain. You could be paying up by sacrificing your family time. You could hurt your business or your job by being physically present on the property for long hours. Similarly, by taking the risk of managing your property without prior experience, you are exposing yourself to difficult circumstances that are tough to handle.

We will take care of screening your tenants, accounts, reports, maintenance requests, and the whole shebang.  This can help you to be free and allow you to sleep well, knowing that your property is in the right hands.

Final Words

Having a great team by your side could help you scale your investment portfolio to new heights. Every landlord needs a good lawyer, an accountant with real estate experience, a real estate agent, and a sharp property manager who is experienced in their field. They may ask you the right questions, give you sound advice, which in return supports you to reach your investment goal.
