You’ve decided to entrust the management of your rental property to a professional property manager and that means you’re free from the day to day hassles of dealing with tenants, keeping up on regulations and managing all of the details. It’s still important to stay informed and communicate with your property manager so you know your property is being protected.
Take advantage of your property manager’s online system of communication. You can review every detail about what’s happening with your property, and you can logon 24 hours a day and seven days a week from anywhere in the world. See your financial statements and when rents are collected and disbursements are made. You can see work orders and photos of your property from the last inspection.
Having all that information at your fingertips is helpful, but talking to your property manager is also important. Someone will be available by phone to address tenant emergencies and talk to you about any problems or questions you might have. A highly trained team is always available.
Weekly updates from your leasing agent are important in keeping you informed. You’ll know how many showings have occurred and whether any applications have come in. You can also access recommendations on preparing the property for the market, setting a rental price and engaging specific leasing strategies.
Communication goes both ways. Immediate attention to some maintenance items are required by law, so it’s critical that your property manager has the best phone number and email address to reach you.
