With a plate full of life already, managing yоur rental property on your own саn be frustrating, time consuming and financially risky. Many owners get hurt by not having the correct screening and verification system in place. This is the most important part of effective, efficient property management.
In the past two years we have seen a large increase in property management start-ups. The higher percentage of these new entities are individuals in the real estate sales business who are adding property management to their career portfolio. Not to say, it never works well, but there could be problems with this option.
At first glance one might think it makes sense to go with an individual whohas either sold property for you in the past, or appears to have an inside scoop on finding good tenants, effective maintenance and if necessary, handling the legal requirements and process if “things go wrong.”
In Orange County California we experience a highly transient environment which can create fast turnover in the property management/rental business. Choosing a solid property management company with a strong verifiable track record of success, an experienced team, with the proper marketing, screening, financial management, maintenance and legal tools in place, could reduce your stress level, and save your valuable time and money.
5 Easy steps in choosing the right property management company
Look for other owners/landlords that are very happy with the service you are considering.
Personal referrals are always the best.
Making sure they know all the local & state laws that affect the management of your property.
Check their memberships including National Apartment Association (NAA) and/or the local chapter of the National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM)? Always review a copy of the lease agreements they use.
What services are provided?
What fees are charged?
How and when do they pay you your income?
Do they give you periodic financial reports/statements?
Do they use their own maintenance people? If so, how much do they charge you for using their maintenance people?
Will they contact you for approval if a repair will cost more than a certain amount of money?
If you are not satisfied with the property management company, can you terminate your agreement with them without any restrictions at any time?
How do they advertise your property?
How they communicate ( phone, email, etc.).
When considering a property management company here in Orange County, test them with that first call, are they easy to reach, do you speak with the owner or an answering machine, or service. How they treat that first call, will speak volumes on how they will protect your interests in the future.
How long do they take to return a phone call or email?
Are they punctual?
Are they professional?
Are they bi-lingual?
Do you feel they have your best interests at heart or theirs?
Before making that final decision, look very closely that they are actually a management company and not working in a real estate office or at home!
Are you talking to the actual person who will be handling your affairs?
Do you feel comfortable that he or she knows what is important to you?
Do they listen well?
Are they considerate and not pushy?
Do they leave no doubt in your mind that they really care about you and your property?
Do they provide verifiable testimonials from happy clients?
Do they provide affordable maintenance options where you have some say in what gets done and how much it will cost?
Are there unknown, potentially high legal fees involved, when and if an eviction is required?
If you are not confident that these questions are answered to your liking, it could be time to move on, do not rush the selection of a management company, just because you need that first months rental check. It is wise to do your due diligence, I would always ask to talk to a current client and in the process you will find the best fit for you, be free to get on with your life and enjoy the fruits of your labor.West Point Property Management, Inc.
