Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a good property manager in Houston?

Researching and analyzing pros online is the easiest way to find a good property manager in Houston. Check out the ratings and customer reviews of property management companies near you to discover which ones consistently offer the best services. 

You can also learn a lot about the companies’ professionalism and reputation by reading the feedback in their reviews. Some reviews also include photos so you can get a sense of the types of properties (houses, apartment complexes, commercial properties, etc.) they manage and the quality of service they provide. 

A good property manager should also have credentials. Find out if any of them have a real estate agent or broker license. You can learn more about licensure requirements from the Texas Real Estate Commission.

Your last step is to contact several Houston property managers, and ask them to send you cost estimates. Get a detailed overview of all their fees — setup fees, lease renewal fees, maintenance fees, monthly fees and more. Then, decide which property management company is the best option for you.

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.

My wife and I are new to the investment and rental business. He was very patient with us throughout the process even though we were up front about shopping around for other property managers. He is very knowledgeable and has many connections. He was with us every step of the way with our first purchase. We truly feel he has our best interest in mind and we feel confident that he'll take care of our property. Truly the start of a beautiful relationship!!
