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.

Reviews for Cliffside Park property managers

Mark is great to work with, he's personable, timely, and trustworthy. I had issues with a previous property management company and reached out to Mark instead. He patiently walked me through everything, wanted to make sure my current contacts weren't breached, etc. A couple weeks later, I was signing a contract with him. Mark got my place rented out in less than a month at $50 more than the previous place was listing it for (it was on the market for 4+ months!!). When I say Mark is detailed and thorough, I mean it. I had already moved across the country and he kept me up to date through email, text, phone calls. He called me each week to provide updates on applicants, and statuses. This is a guy you want to do business with he's quick, ethical, patient, and makes you feel like you are his only customer with the attention he provides. If I know anyone renting out their place I will always recommend Mark.

I had my place listed with RPPM starting in the beginning of Nov, come mid-late March it was still not rented out. My upstairs neighbors listed their place in Feb with an agent and it got rented out in a month. In April, I switched to a different company with a licensed real estate agent (not sure if RPPM uses a real estate agent) and my place just got rented out, it took them less than a month. My original listing was set at RPPM recommended price. Then we reduced the price down over the months. In the end, my new agent rented it out for $50 more than what my last listing price was with RPPM. RPPM says the walk through is free when you first sign up, but it's actually $500. They make promises that you'll get a weekly update on the progress, but I didn't until I complained. I had to set up virtual appointments with RPPM to get updates and only when I complained about not getting a weekly update did they start finally sending over an automated email that told you how many people showed interest on the posting. They left lights on in my unit after showings and wouldn't turn them off for days, I had to request they they update the verbiage to market my unit better. These are not good traits of a property management company if they don't even know how to market a unit. Do yourself a favor and don't use this company if you're renting out a personal home...maybe they do better with office spaces or something...
