Hints and tips to guide you through your property management journey
When selecting a property manager you may be considering hiring a large real estate franchise who offer both property management and sales. You might have seen a few of their sales boards in the local area which gives you confidence that they are the local experts, but are they the right choice for property management? Here are a few points to consider when selecting your property manager.
At a boutique property management agency which offers 100% property management services, you will notice a significant difference in the level of customer service provided. One of the main reasons that a property manager is able to offer a personal and better quality level of service to the landlord and tenant, is due to the smaller amount of properties they are responsible for at one particular time. This allows property managers to deliver the level of service you need and that you expect as a property owner.
To allow a property manager to offer a boutique, personal level of service, they should be managing a maximum of 100 properties. You will receive a better quality of service from a property manager that is managing less properties, so be sure to ask this when interviewing different agencies.
At a boutique agency, property owners have direct communication with the managing director. This provides landlords with a level of confidence knowing you have the ability to go ‘straight to the top’ if required. The property managers at a boutique agency, also have constant communication with the managing director. This can boost level of productivity, which can increases the overall level of service. Employees are able to get quick and innovative solutions to their problems. Fast and effective communication between all parties is essential to building successful, long-term business relationships. An increased level of communication across the board at a boutique agency is one the major factors for many property owners when deciding on which agency to hire.
Many property owners choose boutique agencies because they are specialists in a particular service. By selecting a boutique property management agency you will have a dedicated property manager who is solely focused on delivering the best level of service. Therefore, you are able to receive greater results from your investment property in the long run. As a property owner your main goal is to receive the greatest return on your investment (ROI). This marries up with the main goal of a specialist in property management which is to optimise the performance of your investment property.
