Is a Professional Property Manager Worth the Expense?

As the demand for rental property increases, investors are increasingly turning to real estate as a reliable and timeless investment. And, while real estate can be an extremely profitable investment, it can be very time consuming and overwhelming if you’re not equipped with the proper support. In most cases, a professional property manager can be instrumental to the successful management of your property complex.

Here are some of the main reasons to consider hiring a property manager:


Marketing your property. Most property owners know firsthand about the challenges of tenant recruitment. A property manager can take care of marketing your property to potential tenants, overseeing initiatives such as advertising, tours, and events. Experienced property managers are most skilled at knowing how to effectively “sell” a property and showcase its many assets. This will alleviate you and other members of your staff from having to spend time and other resources on marketing-related endeavors.


Screening tenants. As an owner of a rental property, it’s imperative to choose tenants who will respect your property and pay their rent on time. Property managers play a key role in closely screening prospective tenants before approving them for your property. There are many factors involved in the screening process, including an ability to fulfill lease obligations and adhere to rental contracts. Hiring a property manager will ensure all tenants are fully screened and vetted before moving into your property complex.


Supervising maintenance. Most properties require an absorbent amount of ongoing maintenance, including groundskeeping, cleaning, and painting. Property managers typically supervise most maintenance activities by coordinating vendors and scheduling necessary repairs or installations. This supervision ensures that your complex is regularly maintained and that any issues affecting the quality or safety of your property are immediately addressed.


These are just a few of the reasons to hire a professional licensed property manager to handle many of your property’s functions. Investing in a property manager may be one of the best decisions you make to enhance your property and improve your bottom line!
