As a landlord, you may not realize that hiring a property management company is a crucial step. You may think that you don’t need help and that you can do it all on your own, however this can lead to either being overextended, or a stagnant business. At Twin City Real Estate, we’re committed to being Minneapolis’ property management partner, ensuring the success of our clients, and giving them the ability to expand their list of properties. Do you know when to invest in the help of a property management company? This blog will tell you all the signs so that you’re not overworked and losing potential tenants.
You’re barely able to manage your properties alone.
The more properties you have, the more it behooves you to invest in the help of a property management company. Managing rental properties can become overwhelming quickly. Between all the needs of the various properties, the tenants, finding new tenants, and keeping track of everything, it can be hard to keep everything straight. Not to mention the fact that things can get out of hand really quickly. Hiring property managers to help gives you control over your properties again, and prevents confusion and chaos.
You don’t live near your properties.
If your rental property is located far from where you live, it’s not always easy to handle the necessary maintenance, tenant concerns, and in-person demands that are required of a landlord. Property management companies handle the issues that you can’t simply because of distance, giving you the ability to invest in real estate beyond the scope of where you live and expanding your business. Can you handle being called at all hours to fix someone’s overflowing toilet or flooded basement? Property management companies take care of that burden for you.
You are uninterested in hands-on management.
When new landlords are investing in properties, often they are unaware of the true work it is owning property. It’s a lot of physical work to handle repairs and maintenance of multiple properties, and if you don’t know how to handle a certain repair or maintenance job, it’s your responsibility to find the people who can. Not to mention, urgent repairs can pop up at any time any day. If that doesn’t sound like something enjoyable to you, or if you’re not available 24/7, a property management company will do all of that for you so that you can relax and focus on other parts of your life.
You are busy!
Chances are, if you’re the owner of multiple properties, you’re a busy individual. Especially if the hands-on aspect of your business is something you enjoy, you may not have time to spend growing your business. It’s all about balance, and sometimes extra help is necessary in order to grow. Especially if you lead a busy lifestyle, you most likely cannot be on call all the time for various concerns that may pop up with your properties, grow your business, and have a life all at the same time. Property managers are the investment that allows you to have some things taken off your plate without losing your business. In fact, we guarantee that your business will grow when you take the time to make sure all the necessary bases are covered.
