When you’re selecting a property manager, it’s important that you understand their personality traits on top of their real estate skills.
What to look for when selecting a property manager
Most people would agree that reliability is the number one attribute to look for in a property manager. Finding a reliable property manager means you should be able to rely on them to organise the entire tenanting process. Then, the ongoing management of your investment property. It also means that your tenants will be able to rely on them to show up to the property or organise tradespeople to visit the property when requested.
You’ll want to know that your property manager is approachable, and not only just to you. It’s important that your tenants feel comfortable to approach your property manager if they have any problems with the property, for example maintenance issues.
It’s important that you find a property manager who is communicative so that you can stay up to date (if you would like to) with any news to do with your property.
Whether it’s getting the most for your investment property, renting it out quickly or finding the most suitable tenant, you’ll want to find a property manager who can get you the best outcome for your individual needs.
Organisation skills are a must when it comes to choosing a property manager. One property manager can manage between 100 and 200 properties, so it’s important that you find a property manager who knows how to manage their time and priorities.
