To learn more about property management fees, read “How much does a property manager cost?

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.

Chat with top-rated property managers near you to find out if hiring one is worth the cost.

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. 

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.

I hired Dmytro to manage my Philadelphia property because I was moving out of state. He has been my property manager for the last 2 years and he has done an excellent job! He is very timely, efficient and responsive to both my requests and my tenant's needs. I highly recommend him, your property would be in good hands.

I sent out a request for a Property Manager and Joe called within minutes. I am new to the process and he took the time to walk me through the requirements of property management. What I imagined would be lengthy and difficult to do turned into an easy path with Joe's guidance. If I knew Joe was going to handle my property I would have posted my request sooner.

The EG team is very professional and provides the best rates in Philadelphia for management and even repairs. They have provided me with a very competitive rate and often waive fees in the contract. I would highly recommend them for your property management needs.

Dmytro is very professional, reliable, yet friendly. I had been managing my properties my own, but I needed to find someone to manage since I was planned to be out of state. I was nervous leaving properties to anyone since properties were like my babies... During the first meeting, he was not pushy, understood my position, I felt comfortable. He also recommended to repair buildings effectively, always considers for my benefit. I highly recommend him and his team.

I am extremely impressed with how efficient and knowledgeable the Onyx Management Group is. They jumped right in and sent welcome packets to my tenants, and started addressing maintenance issues immediately after I agreed to hire them. Marina (my property manager) is a real go-getter, she identified problems that my previous management service had missed and then she promptly found solutions. Onyx is leaving other area management companies in the dust. So glad that I found them on thumbtack.

Hello... I believe it’s necessary to have property managers that you can absolutely trust. Onyx Management has more than filled that role for me. As a first-time landlord I felt very tentative about renting my home. However, I found Marina to be professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy, easy to work with and always available and, so, making me feel much more confident at my new business endeavor. Marina has been very enthusiastic about my property resulting in a very short lead time the property was on the rental market. She has been very responsive to any requests for help or information. Our relationship has been a pleasant experience in every respect. I am very happy to give Onyx Management my highest recommendation. – Sincerely, Mark S. Landlord

I hired Prosperity to manage my property a few months ago. Their management team is very professional and their screening process is just the best. Right now I have the best tenant I could ever have, and in the same time the tenants are happy with Prosperity's service as well. Their team keeps everything in order and organized to make sure both parties are happy and satisfied.

When I hired Prosperity a few months ago I was regularly having an issue with my tenant every time rent was due. Since they took over managing the property, I haven't had to deal with the hassle since. I don’t know what they do or how they do it , but they fixed the one thing that was bothering me for months.

If you want to sit back and be free of your tenant stress, then Prosperity is the right choice. I have used them for a couple years now and they are just incredible. Their team is there for you whenever you need them. They are very diligent when it comes to choosing tenants. Since hiring them to manage my property, I have not had a problem with either of my tenants and the great thing is the tenants are also happy with this company too.

I have had an absolute terrible experience working with this company. I am less than a month into the contract and requested to cancel as they are not performing the services they said they would. They admit to just googling companies to perform their maintenance as they do not have their own crew inspire of claiming to manage over 100 properties. The two quotes that I received for move in prep and repairs were outrageous. I would highly recommend people to find another company! I sure wish that I did!!!!
