But before hiring there are certain things or facts we must know before hiring a residential property management company. We have listed a few of the questions that you must ask your residential property management company before you hire them, and they are all given below.
The questions to which you must have an answer to before you hire a residential property management company.
Follow the questions given below and you can be sure to get answers to all your answers and have all the information needed before you hire them.
How long have they been in Business?
This is a big question to ask because you must always select a property management company which is well established and one which has the sufficient workforce to manage all your properties. Some companies have only a few men or women working to manage your properties and if they get more clients they quality is sure to drop. So, look for companies that have been in the business for long and have the manpower with the knowledge and experience to manage all your properties.
What are their Fees?
This is one other important question you must ask because a lot of the management companies offer different prices and don’t follow a common price tag. Some of the companies will offer you low rates but will have clauses and such in the contracts to extract more money from you later. So, you must know all their fees and know where all you will be charged.
How is Maintenance Handled?
One other important question you must ask the property management companies is how the maintenance is handled. This is important because you must know how well your property will have maintenance done. Also, if they are using personnel from outside the company or people working within the company. And if they will give your property 24/7 emergency maintenance line for tenants as well and when they conduct inspections? The answers to these questions will help you determine how good these companies are.
These are three questions that you can ask and the answer to these can help you in a lot of ways when handing the management of your residential properties to them.
