Owning a rental property can be quite rewarding for determined landlords. Be that as it may, you’ll only have an income when you have good tenants that honour their responsibilities.

With a bad tenant, however, owning and managing your rental property can feel rather difficult and time-consuming. It’s for this reason and others that make property owners choose to work with a property management company.

A good property management company can make the difference between a very profitable investment and a poor one. Like any other company, though, choosing the right one is key.

The following are some of the main benefits of working with a property management company as presented by the professionals of Upkeep Media.

1.High Quality Tenants

As you probably know, getting good tenants isn’t easy. It requires effort, knowledge, experience and a lot of time. Without these, you might end up choosing the wrong tenant.

A good property management company can help you with this. It’s all they do, day in, day out. They have a screening process that is not only reliable but also adheres to the law.

This helps them choose the right tenants for their client’s properties. That is, tenants who rent long-term, pay their rent on time, and cause fewer problems.

2. Less Legal Issues

Less Legal Issues

Being a landlord requires many skills. In addition to doing things like property repairs and maintenance, this requires a good understanding of the landlord-tenant laws. Without a good grasp of these laws, a single bad tenant can cause you a great deal of stress.

Most states have laws that cover aspects such as:

  • Collecting and handling rent and security deposits
  • Signing and terminating leases
  • Unit inspections
  • Tenant evictions
  • Property conditions and safety
  • Tenant screening

If you aren’t well-versed in these matters, then it’s clear you need help. A good property management company can also help you in this regard. The last thing you need is fighting a discrimination lawsuit in court or a tenant exercising a legal right (such as the right to repair and deduct.)

3.Personal Benefits

Many of the advantages of hiring a property manager are related directly to saving money. Hiring a property manager, however, can also give you other numerous benefits.

To start, you’ll have more free time. Micromanaging a rental property takes a lot of time. If you hire a property manager, you’ll have the extra time to focus on other important things that matter to you.

You’ll also have more freedom. You’ll have the freedom to do whatever you want without worrying about your tenants.

Letting a property manager handle your day-to-day rental operations can also save you a lot of stress. You’ll no longer have to deal with things like contractors, paperwork, damages, rent, evictions and late-night emergencies. Experienced property managers have the necessary knowledge to do everything efficiently and correctly.

4.Lower Repair and Maintenance Costs

As a landlord, it’s your responsibility to ensure your property is habitable. That is one that is livable and meets the basic structural, health and safety standards.

Aside from meeting this basic legal requirement, regularly maintaining your rental property can also help you preserve your property’s value.

Using a good property manager can help you access a qualified pool of reliable and professional contractors. And, since property management companies usually have bulk orders, you’ll usually be able to get the services at discounted rates.

5.Efficient Rent Collection

Rent is the lifeblood of the rental business. Without it, you may not be able to pay your debts and property expenses like taxes, insurance, and maintenance.

As such, your rent collection process needs to be quick and efficient. Aside from helping you with this, a property management company can also help make sure the rent-payment process is convenient for your tenants by offering services like ACH withdrawals and online payment.

6.Long-term Tenants

Long-term tenants are great for cash flow. They guarantee income every month.

However, when tenants move often, there are usually breaks in the flow of income. In addition, you’ll also have to deal with issues like repairing the walls, changing the locks, cleaning the property, marketing the rental unit, and screening prospective tenants.

Also, doing these things can be time-consuming and quite expensive. Fortunately, there is a way to minimise this. As any experienced landlord will tell you, ensuring your tenants are happy is the key to long-term tenancies.

Now, a lot goes to ensuring you have happy tenants. For example, being timely in regards to property repairs and maintenance, respecting your tenant’s privacy, and charging the right rent.

Property managers are experienced in the business. They know what works and what doesn’t work thanks to the many years of dealing with a smorgasbord of tenants.

Of course, this is an ideal scenario. Not all property management companies are trustworthy, competent and a good fit for your rental property. Knowing how to separate the good from the bad is therefore key.

    Thank you for expounding on how a property management company can screen prospective tenants on your behalf if you have real estate that you want to rent out to people. I want to purchase a local apartment complex this year, so hiring a property management company to help me afterward sounds like a smart idea. I'm going to look for a reputable property management company in my area that I can hire.

    It really is the case that, in addition to fulfilling this fundamental legal need, maintaining your rental property on a regular basis can also aid in protecting its value. In order to manage and run my holiday rental property, I wish to engage a vacation rental management business. By utilizing their skills, I can minimize the stress and strain involved with maintaining the property alone while ensuring a flawless guest experience, effective bookings, and maximum rental income. Thanks.

    I liked how you pointed out that property managers can help with rent collection. My husband's rent collection right now for his properties isn't that great and could do with some improvement. I know he's been thinking about hiring a property manager, so I'll have to share this with him.

    I appreciate that you mentioned that employing a property management company could be helpful if you are having problems locating suitable renters for your rental property. They have a screening procedure that is trustworthy and complies with the law, as you said. I'll make sure to tell my aunt about this because she has been considering renting out her vacation property as she seldom ever uses it any longer. I appreciate you sharing!

    As someone who owns a holiday house in Virginia, my boss finds it hard to monitor the place during the off-season. I think this article should inspire him to consider hiring a management company to look after it. After all, you convinced us that property managers can help us secure responsible renters too.

    I believe it's excellent that you noted that if you are having trouble finding qualified renters for your rental property, hiring a property management business could be useful. As you mentioned, they employ a screening process that is reliable and in accordance with the law. My aunt has been considering renting out her vacation home because she almost never uses it anymore, so I'll be sure to let her know about this. Thank you for sharing!
