Licenses and Certifications

Depending on where your rental property is located, you may need your property management company to have certain licenses and certifications. This will help back up their technical knowledge of property management with documentation that they abide by the highest industry standards.

Reviews and References

Anytime you hire a professional to manage your investments, it’s wise to ask family, friends, former and current clients for a review or a reference. Who better to ask about the quality of their work and their customer service than people who they have worked with in the past?

Examine the Property Management Agreement

When you hire a property manager, you want to make sure that you are aware of the agreement that you are getting into. Always ask to see the terms and conditions of the agreement before hand. This will usually outline the:

• Services Provided and Fees
• Owner Responsibilities

This pretty much gives you know what you are responsible for, what the property management company is responsible for, and how long this agreement will go on for. The right property management company for you won’t have an issue being completely transparent with you.

Look for the Appropriate Insurance

Finally, your rental property is an investment in your future. You want to ensure that any damage that occurs to your property is covered by the appropriate insurance. You will want to verify what kind of insurance coverage your property management company has, and the appropriate renters insurance that you will need in order to ensure that your investment is protected.
