Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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. 

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. 

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.

Marius and team has been a great help in managing my property so far.

After the first 6 months of managing my property they became unresponsive. There was no proactive communication from them after 6 months either. It was very stressful.

Joe set an appointment with me soon after receiving my request to rent my home through Thumbtack. When he arrived, he was thorough in reviewing the house, inside and outside. He came with comparables, so he had done his homework on the area. I needed a professional who understood how to work with property, and with owners, which is why I have asked that he manage the sale of my property. Several companies wanted to give me rental pricing over the phone without seeing the home. In fact, one would not come to the house without my signing a contract. That is not how I plan to manage business, and spoke volumes about how they would manage my property. I am looking forward to a great working relationship with Joe, and The Wilcox Company.

I first came across HomeLife in my search for a property management company who could help me get 2 or my properties up to code and registered with the city. I was cautious in who I could trust to get the job completed from past experiences. I spoke with the owner Mike, who was very nice and open to answer the many questions I had for him. Mike and his team are very organized and detailed when it comes to the work they quote, do, and follow up with after completion. They provided me with before and after pictures of the work completed and finished before the deadlines they stated. I am so greatful for having a team like HomeLife help me with my property needs. Thank you Mike and team.
