All you need to know about Property Management Company

First, let’s clarify What a Property Management Company Does? 
It is the operation, control, maintenance, and oversight of a physical property. This can include residential, commercial, and land real estate. Property management is the management of personal property, equipment, and physical capital assets. It involves the processes, systems, and workforce required to manage the acquired property including.

What are the roles of a Property Management Company?
This profession has many facets, including managing the accounts and finances of real estate properties and participating in or initiating litigation with tenants, and contractors. 

An owner of a single-family home, condominium, or multi-family building may engage the services of a professional property management company. The company will then advertise the rental property, handle tenant inquiries, screen applicants, select suitable candidates, draw up a lease agreement, conduct a move-in inspection, move the resident(s) into the property, and collect rental income. The company will then coordinate any maintenance issues and supply the owner(s) with financial statements and any relevant information regarding the property.

How much does the Property Management Company get paid?
The most common method is a percentage of the monthly rent. The property owner signs a property management agreement with the company, giving the property management company the go-ahead to manage the property and collect rent. The property management company will then keep a percentage of the rent amount and then forward the balance to the property owner each month. 

Owning a rental property can be a great source of additional income. If you’re asking yourself “Do I need a property manager?” — consider this, if someone else is handling the daily management of your rental property and tenants, you’ll have fewer complications and commitments to worry about.
