Investing in Real Estate: More time and less hassle by working with a property manager.




Managing a property can be time consuming, overwhelming to a novice and simply put it occupies a lot of your resources. It also doesn’t change the fact that the work is daily labor on your mind and finances, especially when growing your portfolio. For new real estate investors, establishing a diverse portfolio means meeting new tenants, showing available properties, negotiating rental terms, navigating maintenance costs and so much more. The many tasks that come with a valuable real estate investment can be compared to maintaining a full-time job or running a business. 

The most effective way to free up your time without risking major revenue losses, is by investing in property management. Property Managers handle the day-to-day operations of your rental properties and ensure these key factors:

  1. That your property is rented and stays rented.
  2. Ensure renters are vetted and maintenance is upheld at your property. 
  3. Handle account billing and communication with renters.

These are not the only benefits of property management. For example, property managers will handle the marketing, vetting, and renting of your property. This alone can save you time going back and forth with different renters and scheduling multiple appointments. This is typically worth the cost. Dealing with renters and the many personalities can be draining and overall can lead to unwanted complications. Property managers can take some of the stress off of your hands when dealing with that aspect of your investment. 

The Benefits means less hassle

When adding a property manager to your budget, working with a company that handles rental payments and other accounting concerns on your behalf is extremely helpful. This eliminates the hassle of dealing with evictions, violations, and late payments. This is also true when it comes to how maintenance concerns are handled. The property manager will ensure all repairs are made in an adequate time frame without your needed input. They also secure utility bills, HOA fees, and other related costs every month. These fees are typically handled by the renter and can become time-consuming and complicated with the more properties and tenants you take on. It also means more time with your own family. 

Marketing Matters

One advantage a property manager has is access to a dedicated network to target. They also have a team available to reach potential tenants for your property. They ensure you get the highest rent possible out of your property. Property management should know the details that help justify adjustments in your rental rate when available to make the most out of your investment. They will also have access to plumbers, electricians, contractors who are vetted and can complete the work in the needed time frame, within your budget.      

If your goal is to grow your real estate portfolio, it may be most sufficient in alleviating some pressure by bringing on a credible property management firm. More time to operate your life and less time hassling with the details of rental properties is the biggest benefit. These benefits tend to outweigh the fees associated with a property manager, especially when you have multiple units or multiple properties. The choice is yours, we hope that we could help you identify the things you’ll need to see success in your real estate investment and if bringing on a property manager is the best choice for you.
