How Investors can stay in the game by taking Property Management off their plates

Web Admin - Wednesday, December 16, 2015

When it comes to hiring the best property manager, there are many things to consider. Hiring a property manager or property management company can really save you valuable time and added stress when it comes to taking care of your investment, processing rent and dealing with tenants.

An investor’s best friend

A good manager will also know how to maximize your property’s value, keep units full and minimize costs without sacrificing quality. The manager can bring knowledge and experience to the job that you may be lacking.

If you are too busy to run the day-to-day operations for your rental properties, consider hiring a property manager. Whether you choose an independent manager or use a property management company like C2Crent.com, it’s important to do your research to ensure that they have your best interests in mind. The best property managers do more than just collect rent—they do everything from marketing to tenant screening to processing evictions. Make sure you look for someone who specializes in Property Management and does it full-time. There are many other companies out there that dabble in Property Management on the side, while the majority of their efforts are concentrated on other business ventures.

Do I Really Need a Property Manager?

There are many factors to consider when deciding whether hiring a property manager is right for you:

  • You don’t reside near your rental properties, either in a different city or another state.
  • You may own many rental properties
  • You don’t like or aren’t good at daily property management tasks and responsibilities including evictions, water bills and city inspections.
  • You own property that receives financial assistance from an affordable housing program.
  • You work full time elsewhere and simply don’t have the availability needed to manage effectively

Don’t choose a Property Manager on price alone

You may think that all property managers or management companies are essentially the same and choose the one with the lowest rates, however a little research will show you there are many differences. It’s hard not to base your decisions on price when it comes to your business, after all, we all want to maximize our bottom line. It is essential to consider a variety of factors in addition to price when it comes to the care and management of your rental property. Do your homework and choose wisely.

Always check references

You can get references for other property owners, as well as real estate agents. Check with the Better Business Bureau and ask local investment organizations. Also, if your property requires a certain expertise, such as being a low income housing rental unit or upper end executive rental, look for a property manager with that background and proper references for that specialized niche.

Ask questions, be informed

It’s not enough to just ask vague questions, hit them with specific questions that will let you know how they will treat your property and ultimately your business. Ask how they plan on dealing with after-hour maintenance emergencies, or how they plan to advertise and market vacancies. Other ideas include asking how they plan to control maintenance costs and what type of liability insurance do they carry to protect you and them from lawsuits that may arise. Ask how often your property will be visited in person and listen to the potential manager’s thoughts on how he or she will approach your property’s needs, from tenant screening to lease renewals and everything in between.

Match personality – get to know the staff

You’ll be hearing from the property manager often enough that you want to make sure that you get along on a professional level and that you like their style of communication. Do you have to sign into an owner portal to obtain information regarding your property or will you be able to speak with someone personally? You will be working on issues and problem solving with this person or company so make sure you are on the same page.

HOW MUCH RENT CAN I CHARGE FOR MY RENTAL?

Web Admin - Thursday, July 16, 2015

One of the more important tasks you’ll face as a landlord is pricing your rental. The amount of rent in today’s market and your financial goals for the property are both important ; however, if you set the rent too high, you’ll likely have longer vacancies and high turnover rates as renters seek more budget-friendly options.

When it comes to determining how much rent to charge, it is advisable to consult a Property Manager. A professional property manager, like C2Crent.com have deep insight into specific rental markets in Harrison County, Hancock County and Jackson County. C2Crent.com can show you how your rental house stacks up compared to others with similar features along the Gulf Coast. Whether you use a professional rental agent or go the DIY route, you’ll need to know how to compare your property to others on the market in order to set the right price.

Take into account the following items when determining how much rent to charge.

Location, Location, Location

Location is everything when buying or renting and is one of the main determining factors in how much rent you can charge. A few factors to take into consideration are:

  • Close proximity to major thoroughfares for commuting ease
  • Good schools
  • Nearby shopping, restaurants & amenities
  • Nicely maintained houses and landscaping

Main features of your rental

The first things to look at when pricing your rental are the most basic aspects of the property such as:

  • Bedrooms and bathrooms: The number of bedrooms and bathrooms your rental has fundamentally affects how many people it can accommodate and how comfortable they will be.
  • Size of the property: There can be vast differences between properties with the same number of bedrooms and bathrooms. Additional square footage, basement storage and garage space allow a home to be more livable.
  • Overall condition of the home: Although there is an average rental price for each area that is dictacted by current market conditions, the closer your rental is to new condition, the more you can charge.

Finish levels

Most renters expect “standard” rental units to be well-kept, with reasonably up-to-date interior finishes items. Premium features like the one’s listed below can demand a higher rental price and will make your rental stand out among the others.

  • Wood and/or tile floors
  • Attractive cabinetry
  • Granite counter tops
  • New appliances
  • Spacious closets
  • Energy efficient features such as windows & heating systems
