To learn more about property management fees, read “How much does a property manager cost?

How do I find a good property manager?

You can find the best property manager in your area by starting with an online search. Compare profiles and ratings, and read customer reviews — these tend to give a snapshot of the manager’s quality of work and customer service. Additionally, customers may post photos of their properties that give an idea of the pro’s attention to detail.

Licensing is required in some states, so check to see your state’s policies on licenses and certification.

Finally, compare quotes and prices from at least three property managers.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a property manager during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Ask the property manager if they can set up a virtual consultation or remote appointment using a phone or video chat. It’s best to avoid as much in-person contact as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. If they can talk virtually, ask any questions you have about the work that needs to be done. Ask about their system for handling payments, and see what kinds of precautions they have in place to ensure safety and social distancing. 

Is it worth having a property manager?

While property managers do cost money, they can provide a lot of value to the client. They have marketing know-how and can advertise and perform showings of your property to the rental market. They can collect rent for you and screen potential tenants. They’ll also deal with tenant complaints and repairs, evictions and late rent. Finally, they can manage bill payments to simplify your paperwork and maximize your mental bandwidth.

Do property managers offer remote or virtual services?

Contact the property managers near you and ask if they offer remote or virtual services to accommodate the recent social distancing guidelines. For example, some property managers may be able to collect rent by using digital payments and deal with maintenance issues over the phone or via video chat. 

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a property manager when social distancing?

If you're hiring a property manager to look after a property that you own, consider the safety implications of in-person visits. Due to the CDC’s social distancing guidelines, it may be difficult for the property manager to collect rent in person or complete certain maintenance tasks. Check with your local government guidelines and consider implementing extra safety measures -- such as wearing a mask and gloves -- if you have to meet with them in person.

Can I use digital payments to pay for property management services?

Some property management services accept digital payments such as PayPal, Venmo and Zelle. Check with the property management business near you to see what kinds of payments they accept. Remember that digital payments are typically considered safer due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as it requires virtually no person-to-person contact.

How can I find out if a property manager is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

You will need to check with your city or state government to see if a property manager is considered an essential service provider in your area.

For more information on a national scale, refer to CISA’s document on critical workers. However, keep in mind that some -- not all -- jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Does a property manager need to enter my home?

In most cases, a property manager should not have to enter your home or apartment unless there is a maintenance issue that needs attention. If you are hiring a property manager to look after your property, refer to the CDC’s social distancing guidelines and check on your state or local community rules. Ask the property manager whether they can collect rent through digital methods such as PayPal, Zelle or Venmo, and see if they can communicate with residents through video chat or phone call for maintenance issues. 

Why is property management important?

A property management company can be a landlord’s greatest asset. As a neutral third party, the property manager handles the day-to-day operations of a real estate investment, from a single vacation home to a large apartment building or several rental properties. A property management company can be especially helpful to landlords who own several units and can’t manage each of them individually, or those who live too far from their investment properties to meet with renters and oversee maintenance. Property management is particularly important if your rentals are part of an affordable housing program. To receive financial assistance from the government, the landlord must comply with a complicated set of rules; property management companies should have both experience and expertise in complying with the rules specific to each housing program.

Though they have not actually started managing my property yet, the experience of getting onboarded has been really easy and pleasant.

I was selecting a property management company for my property in Los Angeles. They are quick to answer my questions. I have not select this company because I found another company closely matching my needs at current time

I reached out to discuss an opportunity to manage 2 properties. I spoke with L who expressed enthusiasm regarding the property management and tenant placement opportunity. Unfortunately, there was a lack of urgency in moving forward. After delay in viewing the property I was advised additional time would be needed to run numbers and I received no communication for an additional week. I received feedback that she would like me to incur the cost of professional photography which would not be included in the tenant placement package or deducted from her fee of 75% of the 1st months rent. I have received multiple interested tenants with the existing photos so I did not proceed with her recommendation. Following an additional week of no communication I received a phone call indicating she would like me to forward her evidence of registration to proceed with property management. After experiencing a lack of communication I elected not to move forward or send any further property information which could have easily been requested and provided following our initial communication. As a property owner loss of time in this market is critical and this was not a seamless experience. I share my experience openly to assist other homeowners who seek property management and may need insight when selecting from the companies available in the area.

Kyle found me a quality tenant quickly and did a full background check! He’s managing my studio in West Hollywood. I’ve worked with many other property managers before and because he has EVERYTHING taken care of I never hear from him! I highly recommend Working with Kyle!

It has been a pleasant experience so far, Ahmad is very responsive which is important to us because we value our property and wanted a property manager who can do the same. He is very knowledgeable and if he does not know something he does his due diligence to find the best answer. He knows how to communicate with trouble tenants and get the job done. We have already seen improvement to the property through his communication with the tenant. He is a great buffer between the Owner and the tenant for those who want to maintain anonymity.

Ed was prompt and attentive with all my questions. It’s my first time hiring a property management company and I have to say I was extremely satisfied with how much information was shared with one phone call. I’m confident I’ve found the right company for my home.

I just hired them in the middle of June as I purchased my duplex. Ryan is extremely patient and helpful. He communicates well and walked me through the steps to set up the online account. The transition from previous property management is smooth. So far I am happy with their performance and I look forward to a great working relationship with the firm.

I really appreciate the work that Ryan and Emmanuel have put forth with my property. They've kept their promises with me regarding; time frames and how they intended to carry out our business together, which has alleviated much stress on my end. I can't forget Bianca, she's the assistant that carries weight of making sure everything is lined up properly, and she does a very good job of handling any of my last minute requests. I intend on referring them to more family members and friends that are looking for secure and trustworthy property managers. Thanks again guys!
