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. 

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.

While I was waiting for a quote for property management, I received a call from the tenants about a clogged faucet. I asked Gregg if he could go check it out; he went out the same day, and told me he would charge $90 for emergency service. I met him at the property, and when we got there, he said he figured out he could replace it by shutting off the main, but that he would prefer to come back on Monday to do the work. Since it was already 6.30 pm, I agreed to it - although I was surprised that he still charged for emergency service, when he then told me he wouldn't really do it till Monday. Then on Saturday he called to tell me he wouldn't make it out there on Monday either, and would plan on going on Tuesday. I told him that 1) I couldn't leave the tenants without a faucet for that long and that 2) I was a little surprised that now I had paid him $90 for absolutely nothing (an emergency service that resulted in him telling me he could do the work 4 days later, not exactly a rush job in my opinion). He refused to refund the fee. Needless to say, I called someone else and will not be using him for property management.

I rarely write reviews. When I first hired Paul, in June 2016, I thought he was well qualified and offered great services at a good price. I read the one poor review he had, but I decided that single individual could have a problem. After our first phone call, Paul was a little slow in sending me information (he promised it that evening, but didn't send until the next day), but I decided to overlook that as well. I made a mistake. Our initial in person meeting went well, and I have Paul a set of my keys. There was one key on the ring, that I needed him to copy and return to me. He agreed to do so. Six months later despite repeated requests, he never did so. The first few weeks the unit was on the market, Paul communicated well. But after about a month, and still with not tenant, he stopped responding. I emailed, texted, called his cell phone and his office. I couldn't leave messages on his cell because he allowed is mailbox to fill and it stayed full for days at a time. He finally responded when I insisted we lower the asking rent and suggested I might need to find another agent (This was in mid-October). He told me he had tenants scheduled to see the unit the next day. He called me the next day and told me the tenants would take the unit. I was thrilled. I never heard from him again. I tried emailing, texting, and calling both phone numbers. Again his mail box filled. Tenants never appeared. In November, I sent a certified letter ending our contract with a postage paid envelope so that he could return my keys. According to tracking, he never picked up the letter. I called the listing agent with whom he worked to try and get my keys back. He told me that he had missed opportunities to show the property because Paul had taken the keys and wouldn't respond/show up when showings were scheduled. Finally, I just changed the locks. I still don't have my keys back. The only bright spot was that he never asked me to pay him anything until we had a tenant, but I lost six months potential revenue. Don't Hire Marquis Management.
