How do I choose a property management company?


Answer by  patti (29325)

Go with references. Ask for the information and contact other owners for whom the group manages property. Read the contract for service carefully and make sure that it spells out responsibilities clearly.

Check your Better Business Bureau first, which can be done online. Check with your State's Attorney General's Office. I would suggest you consult with realtors in the area that use companies of this sort. Check their credit. Ask for 3 business references, and inspect their property, speak to tenants independently.

The most effective way to choose a property management company is to interview several different companies and see what kind of packages they offer. Different companies will offer different services so it's best to start with a determination of what kinds of services you expect to receive.

It is best to interview a few different property management companies to see who provides exactly what you want and to compare fees for the services. A professional property management company will have this outlined clearly.

You want to check their track record and look around at the senior management team. Ensure they have a track record of strong lease up and occupancy rates. You want to make sure they have been around for quite some time as well. Longevity is key in this industry when comparing.
