Whether you’re a community association or a landlord who is tired of chasing down late rent from unreliable tenants, working with professional property managers can make your life a lot easier. An HOA and property management company with local expertise and industry leadership can really help you make the most of your HOA or your investment properties. Here’s what you should look for when you’re hiring.
First, make sure there’s a lot of experience. You need processes, systems, and strategies in place for everything from rent collection to lease enforcement to maintenance. Next, check out the company’s reputation. If they’ve worked with HOAs like yours, talk to those board members. Discuss their management style with other owners who use them. Reputation is critical. Finally, make sure they’re able to provide the scope of services you need. Property management services should take a lot of work off your plate.
