Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. 

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.

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.

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.

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. 

What does a property management company do?

Property management companies manage the rental of residential homes, apartments, condos, commercial spaces and retail spaces. Property managers can oversee just a single unit or many properties, whether those sites are inhabited full-time or are vacation rentals. A property management company helps a property owner or landlord find tenants; collects rent; takes care of accounting, property maintenance and repairs; handles on-site management; and manages vacation rental check-in and checkout tasks. Although many property owners or landlords successfully manage their own rental real estate, a property management company can help you handle tenant issues and maintenance problems, especially if you are not located in the same city or state. Most property management companies deal with tenants directly, and their tasks include:

  • Marketing the rental property
  • Collecting rent
  • Handling repair problems
  • Responding to tenant complaints
  • Evicting tenants  

A property management company may be a good choice for property owners who have several investment properties, live far away from the rental property, or don’t have time for hands-on management.

Penny is helpful and agreeable and readily replies to my queries. However, the property has still not been tenanted nor have I seen the marketing for it, so it's a bit early to rate her as a property manager.

I am currently working with Peter at Investors Choice Realty, he and his team have been wonderful to work with. They have made it a very easy process to manage my property in Tampa, Fl. while I am out of state. We have since sold our property! I highly recommend Peter. He is a wealth of knowledge. I needed a Property Manager/ Realtor to manage my property and get it ready for sale. I live out of state which made this difficult. My property needed extensive repair before being placed on the market. Peter walked me through every step. He kept me informed of updates and sent me photos of everything. He also touched base with me on every decision before moving forward. Without him I don't know that we would have ever sold our property. Thanks again Pete!

On the same day we signed the management agreement, Barbara placed 19 listings for our property! The next day, she wrote to inform us that there was some interest, and that she showed the property. Two days after that, she found renters for our property. Altogether, a lease agreement was executed five days after we signed the management agreement!! More than that, within that time she coordinated needed repair and maintenance of several items in and around the property. We are very impressed with Barbara's work ethic, professionalism and the results she is able to achieve. Barbara is truly one of a kind and we give her our strongest recommendation. - Dr. Erick Maxwell

Dixie has done a great job in identifying qualified tenants on quick notice. She salvaged at least 2 months lost rent when my other property management group failed to inform me that my previous tenants had moved out. Dixie came in a really took charge, cleaning up from the previous tenants and securing new ones. I would recommend Dixie to others looking for a reliable and hard working manager.

When visiting the States from overseas, found the house in desperate need of repair, and decided to put it on the market. Was going back overseas in a few days, so needed someone to manage the project and the eventual sale or rental of the house. Found Kiehn Realty on Thumbtack, specifically Elden Alvarez, who responded right away. I can't say enough good things about the experience from that point forward. Elden was able to manage all aspects of the eventual sale of the property, including some serious city council issues, of which he attended meetings and spoke on my behalf, in the evenings no less. This was not a typical property management project! It was complicated from the start, and Elden managed it all with expertise, common sense, understanding, and professionalism. The price he negotiated for the house was right on target, and a contract for the house was written while repairs were still under way. Elden was able to find the right contractors for the repairs, and kept in constant contact with me throughout, even though I was less than responsive because of the time zone differences and amount of hours I work. I highly recommend Kiehn Realty, specifically Elden Alvarez, for any property management or realty needs you may have; you will not find a more trustworthy person. This exemplary first experience bodes well for both Thumbtack and Kiehn Realty. Thank you very much, Elden, for all of your hard work, professionalism, and dedication!

As a relatively new real estate investor and living 3,000 miles from Tampa, I needed a Property Management Company that was well respected in the community. The Tampa Chamber of Commerce gave you a very glowing testimonial and I am also extremely happy with your staff for all they do. With trust and respect.

Penny with Arrico Realty has done a great job. I was tired of managing my rental property myself. Penny helped with repairs to get the place rent ready. Their contract is straight forward, no surprises. Tenants were found quickly. Good tenants too. They haven't' moved out in over a year.

He responded in a timely manner. I was seeking a property manager urgently. Robert responded on his day off. I was so impressed! He offered to meet and explained all his services provided in the same day. We are a military family therefore leaving the country is all to familiar with us. We feel like our home is in good hands. That is a concern for us all the time. Usually, we entrust family and friends to take on the responsibility. This our first time using a property manager ever. I’m glad we made this decision. He was so professional even on his day off. My goodness he was a lifesaver. Definitely, hire this company. Immediately, my stress headache went away. Thank you again. They take care of everything you.
