)-- Linda Pasas, owner of Pasas Property Management, has been in the San Diego real estate industry for over 20 years. Her company offers property management as well as real estate services. She has compiled advice on what to look for when hiring a company to manage your rental property in the list below.
“Good tenants are the first step of a thriving rental property. But it’s more than that. There are a variety of other components to a successful investment property, and working with a Property Management Company can help you maximize your investment and minimize headaches,” says Linda Pasas of Pasas Property Management in San Diego, CA.
A property management company is likely looking after one of your biggest investments, so you want a company with your best interests at heart. So what do you need to ask when hiring a San Diego property management firm? Pasas suggests the following questions to get you started:
1 – Fees: What are the monthly fees? Are there fees for additional services? You’ll want to get everything in writing.
2 – Vacancies: What is the process to filling empty rental units? What screening processes are used to find the most appropriate tenant for your vacancy?
3 – Communication: Make sure the property manager will communicate with you in a timely manner. Be on the same page about the level of communication and how it occurs (phone, email?).
4 – Maintenance: How does the company handle basic repairs and other maintenance tasks? Can they handle landscaping needs?
5 – Financial statements: What kind of monthly and annual reports can they provide? You’ll want monthly income/expense statements.
6 – Evictions: How does the company handle evictions? What are the costs to evict?
7– Advertising: How will the property management company advertising your rental? Do they have a website where they list openings? Do they use social media sites? Do they post signs outside your rental property?
8 – Termination of your Agreement: Know what it takes to terminate your agreement for service.
As you can see, there are many services that go into a successfully managed rental property. Says Pasas, asking the right questions in the beginning of a relationship can save you time, money and headache.
