THE KEYS TO FINDING THE RIGHT PROPERTY MANAGER
Using real estate as a source of income is an excellent idea and has proven to be a very clear path to long term wealth. While some investors in real estate choose to manage their property directly, many also choose to work with a property management company to oversee their properties.
Depending on where you are in your real estate investment journey, you may be asking yourself “Should hire a property management company?” To determine what steps you should take, review the checklist below.
Am I Ready For A Property Management Company Checklist
Do you live near your property?
How many rental properties/units do you own?
How do you manage stress/handle people?
Do you have reliable access to repairmen and maintenance vendors?
Is managing your tenants a good use of your time/effort?
Are you good at record keeping?
If you go through this list and determine that you do need someone else to handle the responsibilities of managing your properties, then knowing that to look for is a major key to success.
