5 Often Overlooked Advantages of Hiring a Property Manager

Hiring a property manager may seem like an added expense at first, but when considering the benefits that come along with having a property manager, it’s actually hardly an expense at all.

Property managers are available to make your life more convenient and handle the tedious parts that come along with owning property that you may not have time for. In addition, there are so many other aspects of hiring a property manager that make it a smart investment for any property owner.

1. Better Screening Capabilities

  • Property management companies have easy access to information that you as a property owner may not have everyday access to. This accessibility makes for more thorough screening for tenants, which leads to having the best tenants living on your property. Property managers go through a lengthy, yet efficient, process of ensuring that quality tenants are being placed on their clients’ properties.

2. Often Partnered with Credit Bureaus

  • One of the aspects of screening that any potential tenant should be going through is a credit check. While a simple credit check is standard, property managers go above and beyond to investigate tenants’ credit history and are often even partnered with credit bureaus. Mesa Property Management, for example, is partnered with Experion, one of the three credit bureaus.

3. Expertise

  • This one may seem like a no-brainer, but it shouldn’t go without mentioning. Property managers do just that…they manage property. Every. Single. Day. This gives them expertise that as a property owner you may not be able to compete with. Property managers know the ins and outs of every aspect of managing property from screening and dealing with tenants to knowing the proper property management laws pertaining to your land. They are experts.

4. Provide A Buffer

  • Another really great thing about hiring a property manager is that they provide a great buffer between you and your tenant. When it comes to tenant-owner relationships, it can be sticky. Let a property manager handle the sticky parts. No need for any other extra stressors in your life.

5. Take Responsibility for Any Legal Penalties

  • This is perhaps the best advantage of having a property manager. If a tenant wanted to pursue legal action for any reason, if you had a property manager, the fault would fall on them not you.

  1. There s another trait that often gets overlooked when job candidates are looked over, and this one might just be the most important characteristic an employer should be seeking in a new hire trainability.

  2. I think that it would be really helpful to have property managers if you were own a complex or a bunch of houses. They will have a firsthand look at how the complex is doing and also make sure there is someone there if there are problems with the apartment. I think most owners have property managers because it is also just easier to have another person help them with the job.

  3. Having a property management company saves you from a lot of stress and worries. I love that you mentioned expertise, I think it’s crucial for your property’s success. Property management companies are also always there to take care of the tenants’ needs when you are not.

  4. This is some really great information for anyone looking to rent out a property. I agree that there are a lot of very important reasons to consider a property management company, not the least of which being their experience. They’re professionals in their field, and if you are just starting out as a property owner then that is a really great asset to you. Thanks so much for writing!
