What are the Benefits of Using a Property Management Firm?

Property management can be extremely challenging even for a seasoned real estate investor. Why deal with time-consuming paperwork, tenant problems, and costly repairs if you can avoid it? Live and invest where you want without having to be near your rental properties. Once you have found a property management firm you can trust, it doesn’t matter if you live in the same state or even the same country. You can simply collect your check each month without having to see your property. Spend time with family and friends doing things you enjoy or focusing on other areas of investment.

Having a Property Management Firm on your Side is a Huge Asset

Higher quality of tenant: A reputable, experienced property management firm has seen thousands of applications and can quickly discover warning signs and shield you from rental scams directed at property owners. A property management firm can help you find tenants that pay their rent on time, rent their property for longer periods of time, and put less wear and tear on a unit.

Tighter rent collection process: The difference between success and failure as a landlord is the way you handle rent collection and late payments. Consistent cash flow is everything. A property management firm will help your tenants understand that on-time rent payments are non-negotiable.

Dealing with fewer time-consuming legal problems: State eviction laws are often very strict and improper knowledge of them can leave you open to a potential lawsuit. A good property management firm keeps their landlord-tenant law knowledge current, has an established process that gets you the best possible outcome, and keeps you from losing sleep over tenant eviction. Property management firms also save you from having to deal with middle-of-the-night emergencies, tenant property damage, and unresponsive vendors.

Lower repair costs and regular maintenance: Hiring a property management firm means getting access to their in-house maintenance staff and working with licensed, bonded contractors that have already been inspected for good pricing and high-quality work. This saves you the trouble of having to look for your own handyperson, and the firm usually gets volume discounts and supervise their work.

Increased value of investment: Professional property managers put systems in place that spot and handle maintenance and repair issues early on before they grow into larger, more expensive problems. This involves a written maintenance check program, detailed maintenance documentation and regular maintenance visits. The management firm can also offer suggestions and feedback on upgrades and modifications, this may affect the rent you can charge, as well as their impact on maintenance and insurance. Regular maintenance and repairs keep your tenants happy and preserve the value of your investment.

Tax assistance: Property management firm fees are deductible, and they can help you figure out what other deductions you can claim. They get you the forms and documentation you need to make those claims.
