Hello everybody my name is Tomas Echeverri and welcome back to Suburban Snacks. This month’s snack is…candy corn! In this episode, I’ll be informing you as to why you should use a property manager when it comes to your rental property. There are many benefits to using a property management company but I’m going to be breaking down 3 that I find most important. Number 1, filling a vacancy. If you’re a landlord then you know that vacancy is the number one way to lose money! If you don’t have anybody living in your property you can be sure that you’re not going to receive a rent payment at the beginning of the month. So you need a management company that has the experience in your market to be able to find a renter quickly. Number 2, setting the right rental rates. As a landlord, you may or may not know what your property can rent for. And that’s where a management company can help. Chances are that if you use a local management company, they may manage other properties similar to yours. This will ensure that they understand how much rent you can charge a tenant. They will also be able to inform you whether or not renting your house is a good investment. Who knows, you may think that renting your property won’t make you money. But then we as a property management company break down the numbers and show you how you can profit.
