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.

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. 

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.

Do property managers need to be licensed?

The licensing requirements for property managers vary from state to state, but many states require property managers to have a real estate broker’s license and in some cases be a legal resident of a state.

Property management may not be specified in a state real estate statute, but according to the Institute of Real Estate Management their activities may include advertising the availability of a rental property, discussing a property management agreement with an owner, negotiating leases, showing a rental property and collecting rents.

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.

True professional as I transitioned from another Property Management company. Handled everything with minimal direction from me.

Premier Properties has been very professional in getting my property rented. They have worked tirelessly working around my current tenant's difficult schedule that I had put in myself to make sure that the property was shown and rented as quickly as possible. They worked with me to provide specific a-la-carte services that I asked for, making my tenant placement and management process truly custom, all at a great rate. I strongly recommend them.

I had John helping me manage a few of my properties. One thing that I like about John the most is that he treats the properties as if his own. Therefore, he never hesitated to go extra miles to find the most reasonable options for different repair jobs, and dealing with different parties for me. His pricing is very reasonable as well, so I would recommend John to anyone.

I found myself in a bind, not happy with my first selection in a property management team. For the same rate, Royce came in and saved the day! We went from listings with (crappy) cell phone pictures, to a full-on 3D model of our beautiful new construction townhome! I hired him in the middle of January, and we had tenants move in at our full asking price on the 26th! Couldn’t be happier!

After reviewing 5 other management companies, I am thankful that John with premier properties was one of them. John has been incredibly professional, informative and has gone way over and above job description and responsibilities making it easier for me being out of state. His company and all expectations are clearly outlined and defined thru out his excellent Web site, making everything transparent. I'm happy feeling secure in knowing my investments are being cared for while I'm 2500 miles away.

Stay away from this property management company! I used them for several months and had a very poor experience with them. Every aspect of working with them was horrible. The many issues included that he did not pay out my owner rent distributions on time, I had a tenant tell him she wanted to move out early (allegedly to take care of sick parents, it was not Covid-19 related. The tenant continued employment at the co-tenant's business. I later found out from neighbors that the tenant moved out early because she purchased a home). Instead of PMI collecting the full rent for the remaining months of the lease, he used the security deposit the first month after move out, with no attempt to contact the tenant for the rent that was due. He had to be told to call the tenant to collect the rent, to collect the late fees for late rent payment, he did not collect the lawn service fees for the remaining months the tenant owed on the lease, he never did a walk through with the tenant when she moved out to itemize any damage and did not send her a copy of a walk through list of damage. Which is how you legally retain a person's security deposit. I had to tell the property manager to schedule a call with the tenants so I could get on the phone with them to enforce the lease and payment, because PMI could not be trusted to negotiate or collect the money from the tenant. PMI removed my keypad front door lock and replaced it with a regular key lock without my permission. It was fully operational and PMI stated they did not know how to change the code when the tenant moved out. So instead of asking me how to change the code, he decided he would just remove it and put the kind of lock he wanted on the door. When asked to provide a receipt for the "repairs" that he claimed needed to be done in the house before it was placed back on the market, he provided an "alleged" receipt from someone he said he used. When told he needed to return the keypad lock to the door, he had a handy man just hang the lock back on the door crookedly, unusable, and broken so it was no longer functional. He was consistently difficult to reach and has gone as long as a week without returning my calls, despite multiple attempts to reach him. After I terminated PMI and hired a new company, the new company provided photos of the damaged lock on the door and damage to the house that needed to be repaired before it could be rented (see some of the photos below). Further evidence that PMI never walked through the house to assess the damage, even though he charged the tenant for house damage. He also took weeks to transition the keys and documents to the new company so they could get into the house to assess the condition, take photos, and get it ready for rent. He only complied when I had to give him an ultimatum to do so. And he retained my repair money without proof of any repairs being completed, as he did not have any photos of the damage or a walk-through list of damage to document. The new property management company provided the photos below, but there were many more repairs needed that should have been billed back to the tenants. So what did PMI repair with my money????? This is not even a complete list of the issues I had with PMI. But it is enough for you to get the picture. If you are thinking about using PMI, DON'T!! You will be sorry. I have included photos of some of the damage to the front door keypad lock and some of the house damage that PMI never itemized or repaired. All while claiming he had been showing the house for rent, unsuccessfully I might add!
