Time to Hire a Professional Property Manager?

June 9, 2020by melissad

Historically, property management was something you could do on the side. Often with very little attention or legal knowledge. However, in the last decade, the industry has changed so dramatically. It can no longer be a simple hobby. Owners and Residents alike demand professional attention and expertise, so you may be asking yourself- why am I still doing this? Is it time to hire a professional?  

Ask yourself:

  1. Are you willing and able to keep up with constant changes to legislation?
  2. Can you offer virtual tours if necessary?
  3. Are you willing and able to offer online rent payments?
  4. Are you confident in your lease paperwork and update it annually?
  5. Do you fully understand rent deferment and payback periods?
  6. If a resident stops paying rent do you know what to do?
  7. Current understanding of the eviction moratorium or state of emergency situations?
  8. Do you have extra time to spend on managing your property?
  9. Who will you call to consult with or the ability to handle a small claims lawsuit?
  10. Do you really want to be managing property?

If you answered NO to any of the questions you should investigate hiring a Professional Management Company.
