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.

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. 

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. 

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. 

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.

Reviews for Baltimore property managers
Alfred B.
Mario is the real deal. Real definition of what a property manager is and does. This is my first property and I had a previous manager that I wasn’t becoming pleased with not doing nearly a Mario has been getting accomplished for me. When he first came to check out my property we discussed everything and expectations. Very personable, straightforward, and honest about his thoughts and opinions which I totally wanted and respect. From actually keeping my property managed and maintained to handling all the administrative work for the property with the city, I really am just in the background getting great updates. Can’t say enough great things. Definitely will continue have Mario managing my property and anymore to come and definitely would recommend to anyone in need or search of a property.

Erik and his team are incredibly thorough on every aspect of managing my properties. I switched from another property manager and it has been a great decision. They are unbelievably responsive and knowledgeable about the ins and outs of being a landlord in Baltimore.

I could not have found a better property manager who understood my situation. This is not a 9-5 company! The owner is responsive and is particular about properties included in the company's portfolio. I appreciate the company's direct, honest assessment, and flexibility.

This company has literally been a blessing to me and my fiancée’s life. We were previously dealing with a terrible property management company then Three Pillars came in like a superhero! The team is super professional, will go above and beyond to get things done, and handle tenants with care. As long as things continue like this- Three Pillars will be our forever property management company in the DC/ MD/ VA area.

I recently hired Johnson Dynamic Property Management. We're very early into the relationship, but I am already extremely impressed with Mr. Johnson's knowledge, professionalism and service.

I consider ManageBaltimore to be consummate professionals. Challenged with finding a new property management company to renovate an older property and get it rent ready in the shortest amount of time possible, I was blessed to come across a recommendation for ManageBaltimore. Providing value based estimates and quality workmanship, the professionals at ManageBaltimore were responsive to my needs and tight timeline. My property looks wonderful and has received numerous rent applications. I can't praise ManageBaltimore enough for their outstanding work.

Rochelle is amazing. She is my fourth or fifth property manager and I think I finally found the right one. She is professional, very responsive and her fees are reasonable. She is a blessing and she takes care of everything as it relates to my properties. I feel blessed to have found her to be a part of my team. I highly recommend Rochelle of the CDR Agency.

Dale and his team are phenomenal. I would highly recommend their services for property management because they are responsive, professional and are able to add value. I personally experienced my tenants refusing to pay and the second that I hired Silverline they made contributions.

I have just started with Stevens for two investment properties, however, compared to the first company I had I know this is the right move. Brandon is down to earth, practical and ethical. He is dedicated to getting the work done. Small is not always better, however, in this situation, a smaller firm is what it is going to take to lease and management my investments.

He tried to charge us 12.11% for property management then when I showed him the original quote, he never messaged me back. 7-8% is the standard, this guy was definitely trying to get over. If I didn’t know the real estate investing world like I do, the wool could’ve easily been pulled over my eyes.
