A real estate owner, trying to rent their property, always hopes for a perfect renter. A “perfect” renter has a pristine credit rating, never makes a late payment, never files a complaint, and leaves the estate spotless when they move out. However, we all know that a “perfect” renter rarely comes knocking.
When faced with the option of purchasing the services of a property management company, many real estate owners are wary of the cost. However, the responsibilities associated with managing a piece of real estate can be quite involved and time consuming. It’s your choice, as the owner, to weigh the pros and cons of working with a property management service. We’re here to explain the perks that a property manager can offer you—relief of the stressful and tedious task of managing your rental situation.
Perk #1: They Know the Rules
There are rules, regulations, and best practices that govern property management situations. Payment agreements, maintenance solutions, state and federal laws, and best practices for dealing with unruly or irresponsible renters are areas where property managers have qualified expertise. They can serve you with their knowledge and experience in the property management industry, able to handle unpleasant situations according to regulations and proper enforcement protocols.
Perk #2: They Handle Maintenance and Repairs
You don’t want to be the one to field the phone call on New Years Eve that your renter’s hot water heater is leaking. You don’t want to be the one sitting on the front steps waiting for the repair service to arrive two hours late. A property management service handles those issues for you, leaving you completely unbothered.
Perk #3: They Screen the Tenants
A property management company, such as North Pacific Property Management, will personally screen all prospective tenants, and examine their credit, employment, and other necessary references. We believe that you deserve the best tenants possible and we will go the extra mile to ensure that your property is in good hands.
Perk #4: They Take the Calls
Phone calls take time and interrupt your daily schedule and routine. We can relieve you of the interruptions and frustrations of fielding phone calls, handling complaints, dealing with maintenance requests, and interfacing with renters about late payments. The time that it saves you is well worth the cost. Let our phone ring instead of yours.
Perk #5: They Collect all Payments
Responsibility for enforcing rental payments is taken off your shoulders. The property management company maintains rental fee due dates, late periods, payment reminders, and penalties for late payments.
These five perks are only a few examples of how a property management service can save you the hassle of dealing with renters, problems, maintenance, repairs, phone calls, complaints, and late payments. Let us use our knowledge and expertise to relieve you of the overhead stress and ensure that your daily routine remains efficiently uninterrupted.
