If you’ve owned income property for any length of time, you know that managing a rental can be financially rewarding. At the same time, you’ve also likely discovered that property management requires a large commitment of time and effort. A rental property only generates income when a landlord has good tenants who pay their rent on time and do not destroy their units. Using a professional property management company has a number of benefits for landlords, especially those who own multiple properties. These benefits save landlords a significant amount of time and money and make owning a rental property more rewarding.
Property management firms handle all of the legal aspects of dealing with tenants and maintaining a property. Property managers handle evictions, property inspections, lease negotiations, lease terminations, and the collection of rent from tenants. They also make sure that each property is in compliance with all property codes and safety laws. These services can help landlords avoid costly lawsuits and legal problems. A property management company will know exactly what cosmetic improvements must be done to the units in order to maximise your revenue.
Lease enforcement is another unpleasant part of being a landlord. The terms of a lease protect both the landlord and the tenant, but the landlord is the one who suffers if the tenant breaks his or her end of the deal. Property managers will take care of lease enforcement and deal with tenants who break the terms of their leases. If a tenant is not allowed to have pets and someone reports that a pet is on the premises, the property manager will contact the tenant and demand that the pet be removed within a specific timeframe. If the tenant puts holes in the wall or makes other property modifications that were not discussed with the landlord, the property manager can make sure the tenant pays for repairs.
Cosmetic work on the property
Using a property management firm can help shorten vacancy cycles, which cost a landlord money. Without a property management firm, it may take a landlord several months to prepare a property for rent, determine how much rent to charge, and market the property to potential tenants.
By hiring a specialist, you won’t have to deal with late-night emergencies, evictions, chasing down rent, damages, paperwork, having to find contractors, and other tedious and time-consuming tasks. If you hire a property manager, you can travel anywhere you want without having to worry about your tenants and about the regular inspections. You can live wherever you want and you can invest in other properties. For a property investor, time is money, and your time would be better spent doing other things than micromanaging a property. If you focus on asset management, then you are working on growing your business, if you manage the properties yourself, then you work in it. Not to mention that you will also have more time to spend with your family and friends.
