"A couple months ago I began looking for a property management company to handle my rental condo. I talked to John and a couple other groups. John was very responsive, answered all my questions, and most importantly, seemed like he really enjoyed his job. We signed a one year agreement. Then, the day after he posted our condo online, my wife and I learned of a someone who was going through an extremely difficult life circumstance. We felt that God was calling us to let this person live in our condo for free for a while. Since we knew this person, we would handle the day to day management of the condo until they could get in a better situation. I reached out to John and his partner, Jim, and explained the situation. I asked them to remove our condo from their listings for now. I said that although we didn't need their services for the time being, we had signed an agreement and I planned on honoring that agreement and paying the monthly fees. John and Jim were extremely understanding and, even though we had already signed an official agreement, told me they wouldn't be charging us any fees while we were helping this person. It was an extremely generous gesture on their part. So, although I currently can't speak to the services they provide yet, I can tell you that their character speaks for themselves. I have every intention of working with them again as soon as our situation changes and we begin renting our condo out again."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

Do property managers need to be licensed?

The licensing requirements for property managers vary from state to state, but many states require property managers to have a real estate broker’s license and in some cases be a legal resident of a state. Property management may not be specified in a state real estate statute, but according to the Institute of Real Estate Management their activities may include advertising the availability of a rental property, discussing a property management agreement with an owner, negotiating leases, showing a rental property and collecting rents.
