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.

Engaged and responsive maintenance resolution for our property in Alexandria VA. Mars Hill Realty Group has been an outstanding partner in managing our property in Alexandria. Considering we are military and are thousands of miles away from our property, it is a comfort knowing that a professional property management company is overseeing our home. I view Edward and his team as a partner because they have responded to our needs as if the property was their very own. From maintenance request to monthly accounting, Mars Hill Realty Group is professional, engaged, and efficient. If you want a professional property management company looking after your property, Edward and his team are the folks you want to contact.

I am deciding how to manage my Dad's house now that he is in assisted living. No one in my family is in the Northern Virginia area. Mr. Nesbitt was the first to respond to my Thumbtack request. He did an excellent job of reviewing options, strategies, alternatives and the pit falls of each course of action. He also provided me with an estimated value of the property by email. I found Mr. Nesbitt to be very knowledgeable and helpful without concern for his own gain. Many thanks!
