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.

Ended up not using a management company to rent our single property, but would have gone with John if we had.

Premiere has been managing my townhouse rental for 2 years now. Their rates are lowest around but their service is top notch. The attention to detail you get from a smaller management company. Premiere has a cadre of maintenance and repair associates that have quickly handled all the large and small problems that have cropped up. Premiere got my property rented quickly and has managed lease extensions and renewals well.

We recently moved and had “Mars Hill” helped us to rent our old house. Edward and his team have been extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with. We were out of country when they marketed our house. We received consistent updates from Edward and his team. They emailed us statistic on the number of showings, the type of applicants and feedbacks they received from showings. The fact that I can shoot over an email to them and get a prompt response is a major plus. With the timely information, we were able to quickly adjust our strategy to promptly respond to the market and make decisions. Edward and the team helped us to identify strong applicants. They did a thorough screen on the application, including the background and credit history checks. They also interviewed the applicants to ensure their qualification. They made their recommendation based on all the facts collected and their professional expertise. They also helped us to negotiate the lease on my behalf. We now have a signed lease and are very happy with their services. We will definitely recommend Edward and his team to people who are looking for great property management.
