Today on our blog we are sharing some quick information in the form of a Top 10 list. Here are the Top 10 Reasons to work with a professional property management company in Charlotte:
10 – Time
If you don’t have the time or the patience to deal with your rental property and your tenants, you should hire a professional property manager. We can show you how to get started and where to go from there.
9 – Out of the Area
If you don’t live in the area, you have no immediate access to your property. You will need someone in the neighborhood who can go by and check on the property and collect rent from your tenants.
8 – Marketing
It’s important to know where to advertise so you can attract the largest pool of prospective tenants. A professional property manager can effectively market your rental.
7 – Screening
It’s important to check an applicant’s criminal background and credit history. If you don’t know how to do this, or you don’t have the resources, a property manager will.
6 – Difficult Tenants
It takes a lot of experience and knowledge to deal with difficult tenants. We have that capability.
5 – Maintenance
You probably aren’t a maintenance guru, and that’s another good reason to hire a property manager. If anything goes wrong at your property, we have relationships with vendors. We can get anyone from an appliance expert to an HVAC contractor. We know who charges an assessment fee and who does reliable work for a fair price.
4 – Security Deposits
You may not know how to manage tenant security deposits. The law differs from state to state and you need to know how much you can charge for a security deposit, how much time you have to return it and what you can keep from the deposit after a tenant moves out.
3 – HOA
If you do not want to be bothered by an HOA, a professional property manager can provide an effective buffer zone.
2 – MLS Access
Professional property managers like us have access to over 8,000 Realtors. Our MLS subscription allows us to syndicate your property’s ad on sites like Zillow and Trulia. This really helps your Internet marketing.
1 – Service
