    10 Reasons to Hire a Professional Property Manager

    Thanks to All Property Management (www.allpropertymanagement.com) for posting such a good article, that I decided to share it!

    10 Reasons to Hire a Property Manager

    hire a property manager
    If you've owned income property for any length of time, you know that managing a rental can be financially rewarding. At the same time, you've also likely discovered that property management requires a large commitment of time and effort.
    While it may make sense to take the do-it-yourself approach if you're a handy person, live close to your property, and don't mind devoting several hours per month to the task, in many cases this just isn't practical---especially if you hope to expand your business. With this in mind, here are some critical tasks a property manager can help you with:
    1. Setting the right rental rates: While looking through the classifieds to see what other landlords are charging for similar properties is a fine way to ballpark your rent price, a good property management company will conduct a thorough market study in order to set a rental price for your property, ensuring that you achieve the perfect balance between maximizing monthly income and maintaining a low vacancy rate.

    2. Collecting and depositing monthly rent payments on time: If you've ever worked in a billing department, you know that securing payment from clients can be difficult, not to mention awkward. Property management companies have efficient, tried-and-true systems in place to effectively collect rent and maintain on-time payments. You'll find this particularly important if you have a limited number of properties, and collecting payments on time is crucial to maintaining your cash flow.

    3. Marketing and advertising your property: Through long experience, a property manager will know exactly where to market your property and how to craft compelling advertising materials---a significant advantage when it comes to filling your properties quickly and avoiding long vacancies.

    4. Finding the right tenants: Experienced property managers are experts at finding good tenants, and will take care of all the details, including the securing all criminal background and security checks, running credit reports, verifying employment, and collecting previous landlord references.

    5. Managing tenants: In addition to finding good tenants, a property management company will manage all aspects of the tenant-landlord relationship. The property manager will handle both routine and emergency maintenance, take care of routine inspections, and manage any situations where conflict resolution is required.

    6. Managing vendor relationships: Property management companies have relationships with maintenance workers, tradesmen, contractors, suppliers, and vendors that it's almost impossible for an independent landlord to duplicate. Not only will your property manager get you the best work for the best price, they'll oversee any necessary maintenance projects.

    7. Ensuring that you're in compliance with housing regulations and property laws: There is a multitude of applicable laws and regulations to abide by when renting and maintaining your rental property. These include local, state and federal regulations, as well as fair housing regulations (such as the ADA). A property manager can help you avoid lawsuits by keeping your property up-to-date and in compliance with these regulations.

    8. Enabling you to invest in geographically distant properties: If you manage your own properties, you're pretty much limited to investment opportunities within a tight radius of your own home. By hiring a property manager, you can take advantage of investment deals in any location you wish.

    9. Maximizing the profitablity of your time: By having a property manager take care of the day-to-day aspects of running your income property, your free to spend your time identifying further investment opportunities or otherwise furthering your career.

    10. Maximizing the profitablity of your money: Most property managers charge a percentage of your property's monthly rental rate in exchange for their services. The rate typically runs anywhere from 6-10%, which is generally less than the money you save by hiring a professional to take care of your property.

    Why Landlords need Property managers who conduct interior inspections.

    This week we conducted over 40 interior inspections.  This is something we do for all of our rental properties every 3-4 months.  Needless to say, this is no easy task, as it takes us several 8-10 hour days to complete all of the properties within our system.  However, a long time ago we made the decision to provide this service within an industry that lacks the service. The need was present so we took on the task.  Here are just a few reasons you want Exit Realty Professionals Elite to manage your investment.  This week alone we saved our landlords a lot of money, vacancy time, and headaches.  If your property manager does not do interior inspections how would they find these issues until it is too late?  Here is a disclaimer:  Not all of these issues were present in our rental homes, however they can and will happen at sometime if you are not aware of them.

    1.  Sprinkler system turned off, allowing the grass to dry and die.
    2.  Unwelcome pets.
    3.  Unwelcome additional tenants.
    4.  Fire Hazards.
    5.  Life and Safety Hazards.
    6.  Painting without written approval.
    7.  Substitution of appliances and poor storage of such.
    8.  Poor House keeping.
    9.  Storage of hazardous waste and materials.
    10.  Trash being left in the property which draws bugs.
    11.  Lack of proper landscaping.
    12.  Dirty air conditioning filters, and backed up drain lines.







    Save yourself the time and aggravation and hire a property manager who will do interior inspections!  Here are a few pictures of what could happen to you if you do not inspect a property.  These pictures were taken from a home where the landlord did not inspect the property for two years and when the tenant stopped paying the rent regularly the landlord hired Exit Realty Professionals Elite to try and fix his problem.  Unfortunately, this is what we found when we took over.  If the landlord would have been doing regular inspections it would never have gotten this bad!

    How the Holidays effect rent collection!

    Over the years we have learned to expect the holiday season to greatly effect the ability to collect rent.  While we are not psychologists it seems to be a human pattern to over spend for the holidays.  Thus when the 1st of the month comes around there are a lot of people scrambling to find the money to pay rent.  I am not sure why people behave this way, you would think they know that rent is due on the 1st of the month.  However, I guess many people think it is better to provide their children with the latest tech toy or video game rather than a safe, secure roof over their heads and a warm bed to sleep in.  Is it possible to tell our children "NO" in today's time?  Do you budget for the holidays?

    I am curious to hear some input from others on this topic.  We can relax during the holiday break from work at the end of December, however come the 1st of January we are back at it and our jobs have just become more difficult as compared to the rest of the year.  I am thankful that this "Holiday Effect" does not infect everyone just a select few and we appreciate the tenants who have not allowed the season to be the reason for being late on their rent.



    Here is a sample of a 3 day notice used for those who have shopped more than saved:

    Mortgage Debt Relief Act Extended!

    Great News,  DSnews.com reported yesterday that Congress approved an extension of the Mortgage Debt Relief Act.  What this means is that home owners who are facing foreclosure may now short sale their property and they will not be held liable for paying taxes on the difference between what they owed and what the property sold for.  This also means that we should see less foreclosures in the market place and more pre-approved short sales.

    Investors should be able to reap the benefits from this as prices and interest rates are currently at an all time low.  However, we fully expect to see prices continue to rise in 2013 as we follow a price increase from 2012 of over 5.9%

    If you are behind on your mortgage and facing foreclosure, call Exit Realty Professionals Elite and we can help you short sell your home and then find you a rental property.  We are a full service brokerage.  Should you need any legal advise we recommend the Reed Law firm, as we have found them to not only be very affordable, but they are also very good at helping home owners avoid foreclosure.

    Home Prices are on the Rise, Now is the time to invest!

    As many of you know or have read,  CNN.com has released the data showing the home prices have gone up more in 2012 than any other year in the past 2 years.  You might ask yourself, "What does this mean for me"?  What this means is that if one of your goals for 2013 is to invest in your future NOW is the time to BUY real estate and turn it into a rental.  The rental market is strong as people need a place to live after they have been asked to leave a foreclosed property.  No matter if they were the previous owner who fell on hard times and is now back on their feet or if they were tenants renting a home where the landlord let the property go into foreclosure.  You always hear people say " Buy Low, Sell High"  Now is your time.  Take advantage of it.  Call Exit Realty Professionals Elite and use our full service brokerage to help you buy a home and then we will also help you make money renting that home.
