Why use a Property Management Company?
Rental property is a big investment, and you want your investment to be profitable. That’s why during certain situations it may be in your best interest to hire a Property Management Company (PMC) to manage your rental property. A PMC might be helpful in the following scenarios: if you live a significant distance from your rental, if you have several properties, or if you’d simply like to enjoy the rewards of owning investment property without the headaches of managing it.
Property Management Companies can act as a liaison between you and your tenant. They generally stay current with rental laws and requirements, minimizing the chances you’ll be liable for an unexpected situation.
Specifically, property managers handle duties including:
Tenant screening and background checks
Legal proceedings and eviction coordination
Round-the-clock emergency service
Preventive maintenance programs
