How do I find a good property manager in Boston?
You’ll need to do a bit of online research (including cost research) to find a good property management company in Boston. For example, you should always compare customer ratings and reviews, paying close attention to reviews that mention the property manager’s quality of work, professionalism, punctuality, communication and pricing.
Speaking of pricing, you should ask many questions about the fees (management fees, maintenance fees, setup fees, etc.) they charge. Get several cost estimates for your property so you can figure out which property manager offers the best price for high-quality services.
One last thing: look into the pros’ credentials. For example, find out if they have a broker or real estate license in Massachusetts. You can learn more about property management licenses by visiting the state’s Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development website.
