Managing a property as an investor is possible but also time-consuming and stressful. We’ve covered quite a few misconceptions about property management over the years, here is our list of property management do’s and don’ts:

First off, what is a Property Manager?

Many property owners and real estate investors hire an individual or a property management company to handle their real estate investment’s day-to-day upkeep and maintenance. Property managers are an excellent solution for investors who do not live near their properties or do not have the time to act as property managers.  Now, on to the do’s and don’ts:

Property Management Do’s

Do listen and communicate

Take the time to listen to your tenants, whether that be complaints or compliments. Communicate promptly with your tenants. 

Do be proactive 

Investing in upgrades for your commercial property can have long-term benefits, such as attracting more tenants. While it’s not necessary to fully deck out each unit, it’s worth considering enhancing the common areas. 

Do hire a property management company

You can take on most of the day-to-day property management if you aren’t already working a full-time or part-time job. However, managing a property is a full-time job. A property manager’s tasks include marketing, repairs, and reporting. Do you have time for that? Hire a property management company to avoid the potential stress of day-to-day operations at your investment property. 

Property Management Don’ts 

Don’t ignore maintenance issues

Property management companies have a network of trusted partners. Ignoring a maintenance issue could lead to even more significant problems. If your tenants cannot rely on their property managers to fix their maintenance issues, you could have a DIY nightmare on your hands. 

Don’t think you have to handle it all 

So you’ve invested in your first property and think you can self-manage every detail that comes with owning an investment property. However, if you are planning to grow your investment portfolio, you won’t have time to manage properties. Hand it over to the professionals. 

Don’t forget that a property management team is essential

Always treat your team respectfully, and do your part to help make their job easier.

Property management involves much more than collecting rent, and these property management do’s and don’ts shed light on the day-to-day of property management.
