Should you hire a property manager?
3 Benefits Of Hiring A Property Manager
Are you looking to rent out one of your properties? Whether you are new to this whole ‘being a landlord’ thing or you’ve done it for years, hiring a professional property manager may save you big in time, energy, and money.
If you are like most landlords, you probably have a job aside from being a landlord. Do you really want another one? Property managers dedicate their days to taking care of all the little details that go into managing a property and dealing with tenants, and they do it professionally. Why not take advantage of their expertise?
There are many benefits to hiring a property manager. Here we are rounding up our top 3 reasons why you should hire a property manager.
#1. Tenant Screenings
Everyday your property sits vacant it costs you money. We know the stress this can cause. We also know that the sight of a potential tenant filling in that vacancy can cloud your judgement. In the rush to get a tenant to move in, you might not see clear red flags in a tenant’s screening report, or worse, forget to screen a tenant altogether.
When you hire an experienced property manager, you will be surprised with how he/she could easily spot potential problems. His/her trained eyes, make it easier to notice red flags at an early phase. By doing so, you are able to improve your chances of obtaining a reliable tenant.
#2. A Point Of Contact
Renting out and managing a property on your own can be very daunting. The toilet broke, the A/C is leaking, the neighbor’s dog is barking, the tenant lost his job and needs a few days to make rent… being a landlord means being the go-to person for every issue the tenant has. You already have a full time job, wouldn’t it be better to let someone else handle the issues? Someone who has a reliable team of plumbers, electricians, handymen, and lawyers on speed dial and can help you fix problems while you just wait for an update?
#3. Rent Paid on Time
This is definitely one of the biggest benefits of hiring a property manager. As someone who treats this as a business, you want to make sure that your tenants pay on time. A property manager will chase tenants to ensure that these individuals pay their rent on time. He/she understands that for this business to grow, making sure that payments are paid on time is key.

It's awesome that hiring property management professionals can help make sure that there are no red flags in a tenant through their screening process and provide handymen contacts to help fix any problems. It seems like if someone were to own apartments, it would be helpful to hire a company like this so that they could not have to spend as much time running everything. If I know anyone managing any property themselves, I think I'd let them know that hiring a property management service could alleviate their workload.
