property manager to use and the decision to use a property
manager at all can have a big effect on your experience as a
landlord. At Elite, we consider ourselves to be full
service. We want to be here to answer all of your questions.
To help you make your decision, we wanted to answer a few of
our most commonly asked questions when looking for a
property manager. If you have any questions about property
management or Elite, contact us here.
Why use a property manager?
Property managers serve as the primary contact for
prospects and tenants, saving you time and effort in
marketing your property, collecting rent, handling
maintenance and repairs, responding to tenant requests. and
doing the less pleasant work of pursuing evictions, should
that prove necessary.
For those who live far from their rental properties, a
property manager can be invaluable. Having a property
manager makes managing your rental investment less of a time
commitment, without the hassles of trying to coordinate
necessary repairs and connections from a distance. Busy
landlords especially benefit from a property manager.
Property managers deal with the day-to-day aspects of
managing properties, so that you can spend your time
How do you find a good property manager?
Interview companies and ask all of your questions before
hiring them. Make sure that they are offering the services
you want and have good reviews. Ask them how many properties
they manage, how they market their properties, how often
they will conduct inspections, what services they offer,
what they charge, how they address maintenance issues, etc.
Check out their current work-- see their ads for current
rental descriptions. Look at the actual properties they
manage and check to see if they look clean and well cared
for. The more questions you ask, the better idea you will
have of what each property manager offers.
What services does your company offer me?
