Landlord Resources


Although hiring a property management company has many advantages, using one does add expenses to your net monthly rent income.  Expect to hear quotes ranging between 5% and 10% of what you collect in rent revenue. And, even apart from the cost, relying on a property management company is not for everyone. If you're able to manage things yourself you may want to keep doing so.  Consider the following factors to determine if hiring a property management company would be a good decision for your business.

You should consider hiring a property management company if:

          ►  You have lots of properties or rental units.
          ►  You don't live near your rental property.
          ►  You're not interested in hands-on management.
          ►  Your time is limited. 
          ►  You can afford the cost.
          ►  You're suddenly inundated with management tasks. 
          ►  You don't want to be an employer.
          ►  Your property is part of an affordable housing program.
