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.

Stay far far away - ZERO STARS Randy Houston from APM agreed to manage two properties for me starting Dec 2018. The agreement requires him to deposit rent payments in my account by the 15th of each month. He failed to do this EVERY month Dec 2018 - July 2019. I fired him on July 25th and instead of informing the tenants he continued to collect rent from them. He did eventually send letters out more than a month later, after I had directly informed the tenants myself. He then stalled for almost two months and still hasn't released security deposits for either property as of 9/13 - this has prevented me from being able to hire a different PM firm because they would need those deposits assigned to them along with the leases. I have bank and email records to validate everything written here. I relied on Thumbtack reviews when choosing him and I regret it - I hope others won't make the same mistake.

This is ongoing and in early stages but Lisa is phenomenally organized, knowledgable, and capable. She gets stuff done quickly and well and is upbeat to boot. Great, great manager. Update, 2019. I've been with Lisa for years but quality of service has gone steeply downhill. There used to be much better service and communication but in the last year that has gone away. Messages go unacknowledged, questions go unanswered, and accounting is spotty. An example: I needed year end property statements for doing my taxes. I asked for them in February, as I had not received them. Eventually I was told I had a message on my owner portal. That was the same owner portal that had recently been rolled out...and that I couldn't access. Earlier asks for help with it led nowhere and I repeated my request several times over months before finally getting my year end statements...a week before April 15th. Argh. Another example was finding one of my properties had a significant fire by Lisa leaving a voicemail that basically said "Sorry for bad news but one of the houses had a fire. I'll be out of country in the morning." No notice ahead of time she would be out of country ("FYI, I'll be gone; talk to person x if you need anything during that time"), no idea when she'd be back ("I have something pressing I need to see to, should be back by X/Y...), no alternative contact info ("I'll be out of town but will still check email/Skype/Telegram...") and it was a merry time trying to get my insurance company to get in contact with her. Double argh. Last example is payment. This last year I've had to ask about statements and payments continually. There are oddities about payments earlier in the year and the last deposits I have gotten are from March. It's mid-June. There have been no statements for April or May. There was a note I got that my account would be done and paid "today or tomorrow"...weeks ago. Then the following week told me I'd see statements and money in my account by Friday...which was *last* Friday, a week ago as I write this. Lisa is personable and knowledgable and I am very glad to have met her but I suspect she has taken on more work than she can handle properly. In the meantime I must regretfully take my business elsewhere.
