The Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Property Manager

Handling an investment property is hard work. From finding reliable tenants to keeping your property in top shape to dealing with maintenance requests—you have to wear a lot of different hats. Oftentimes, the time commitment can be overwhelming.

That’s where we come in. As skilled and experienced property managers, we’ll take away all of the big headaches and responsibilities of property management.

Curious how exactly we can help? Here are just a few examples of what we’ll take care of for you.

Set the Right Price

Setting a rental rate, much like setting a price for a home, is more complicated than it seems on the surface. You have to know what other properties in the area are going for, how the condition of your property should play into the price, and how rent is affected by local and national market trends.

We’ll be there to crunch the numbers, do the research, and ensure that your rent is set at the best possible price for attracting tenants, but also making a profit.

Screen Tenants

Someone wants to rent your property—that’s great! But just because they’re interested, doesn’t mean they automatically get in. You want to make sure that your tenants are reliable, responsible, and won’t cause any major problems.

Through the application and screening process, we’ll look into each potential tenant’s background and make sure they’re a good choice for you and your property.

Market & Advertise Your Property

So you have a rental property, but you don’t have a great way to let people know. Maybe you rely on word of mouth, or posting on social media, or putting up posters around the community. When it comes to spreading the word, we have a wide variety of resources.

From listing your property on our website to posting on our social media platforms to informing our network of local contacts, we’ll ensure that every potential renter in the area knows about your property.

Maintain Your Property & Vendor Relationships

Dealing with maintenance requests can be tedious. Leaky faucets, broken appliances, plumbing problems—you’ve probably got bigger things on your plate to worry about than these.

We’ll act as a go-between for your tenants’ maintenance concerns. Not only can we field their requests, but since we’re on friendly terms with tons of vendors and contractors in the Erie area, we’ll get things taken care of quickly!
