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. 

What does a property management company do?

Property management companies manage the rental of residential homes, apartments, condos, commercial spaces and retail spaces. Property managers can oversee just a single unit or many properties, whether those sites are inhabited full-time or are vacation rentals. A property management company helps a property owner or landlord find tenants; collects rent; takes care of accounting, property maintenance and repairs; handles on-site management; and manages vacation rental check-in and checkout tasks. Although many property owners or landlords successfully manage their own rental real estate, a property management company can help you handle tenant issues and maintenance problems, especially if you are not located in the same city or state. Most property management companies deal with tenants directly, and their tasks include:

  • Marketing the rental property
  • Collecting rent
  • Handling repair problems
  • Responding to tenant complaints
  • Evicting tenants  

A property management company may be a good choice for property owners who have several investment properties, live far away from the rental property, or don’t have time for hands-on management.

Tricia did a fantastic job informing us of what was required of the Landlord to securing a well-qualified tenant. We are very happy with the level of service and expertise she provided. She was available, responsive & and handled everything in a timely and professional manner. I interviewed several companies and Windermere wasn’t the cheapest but I am confident that we found an experienced property manager and knowing this is worth the cost. We made the right choice to use Windermere Property Management and Tricia Jacobs as the property manager.

We've only been working with Alex for a couple of months, but the crucial period of listing, showing, and getting a tenant moved into a never-been-rented-before property has gone very well. We are very satisfied with how things have gone, and Alex (and his team)'s responsiveness is everything we need from property management. Recommended.

Eric has been wonderful to work with since the first day I called him to inquire about managing my property. He is always available to answer any questions and was motivated to fill my vacant condo since day 1. Professional, personal, and easy to work with! Would highly recommend.

Josh Auxier is very helpful and nice person, he knows everything about how to managing property and dealing with association, I had problem with my association and some legal issue with them, Josh spent his time to talk to me on phone and he gave me useful advises, he even offered me a good discount because I already had tenants over there.

Working with Alex at PMI has been awesome. As a first time landlord I needed someone I felt I could trust and someone who could take over all the maintenance needs immediately so I could move out of town knowing my property was in good hands. The first company I tried to work with offered an extra low fee but little to no help with getting the property ready. The second was ready to take over but wanted to spend any profits getting the house ready. As a real estate investor in his own right Alex had a completely different approach. I felt like he had my best interests at heart not simply in it to make a buck. On top of that he offered a better deal than the first company. If you're looking for a property manager in the Puget Sound area ready to put in the hard work and ease your mind PMI is the place.
