Why hire a professional property management company?Posted by Christopher Berkompas in Property Management Articles
Ultimately it boils down to two factors: your lifestyle decisions and return on investment. Many owners determine that their time would be more productively and enjoyably spent doing something other than actively managing their rental properties.
Here are some of the ways a property manager can help:
- Research comparables to determine the optimal rental rate for your property.
- Market the property to minimize vacancies and maximize income.
- Screen tenants and protect you from bad prospects and scams
- Maintain the property and handle preventative maintenance to maintain the value of your investment.
