What should you look for in a property management company? Let’s discuss.
Before hiring a property management company to help run your rental property, there are several steps you need to take to ensure you’re picking the best one.
First, check out their Google reviews. In our digital age, this is critical.
Next, research the services they provide. Different companies will offer different types and levels of services, so it’s important that you pick a company that fits your needs. As a rule, every company you consider should offer to handle the property’s maintenance.
The third step to take before making a hiring decision is to find out if the company conducts inspections. Working with a company that does inspections and offers detailed inspection reports will be tremendously helpful.

Also, you need to find out how many years of experience they have, as well as how many properties they’ve managed. This will give you a good idea of how qualified they are to handle yours. However, be careful—older doesn’t always mean better. The company you hire must be tech-savvy, since many of today’s renters are younger and tend to prefer working through digital portals.
Of course, this only scratches the surface of what makes a good property management company. If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
