Today we want to share a few of the benefits that come along with hiring a professional Centralia property management company to take care of your investment home. There are a number of advantages to using professionals, and these reasons are by no means a comprehensive list:
Screening and Move In
Professional Centralia property managers will take care of tenant screening so that you can be sure you are getting a qualified, responsible tenant in your property. In addition to finding you the right tenant, a property manager will manage the move in procedures and complete a move in inspection report. This will be extremely helpful to you if there is ever a legal problem that requires documentation of how the property looked at the time of move in. A property manager will also take care of the lease signing and make sure any required addenda are included.
Laws and Liability
A property manager will be up to date on all the national, state and local laws that apply to you as a landlord. Unless you know all the legal particulars involved in a landlord/tenant relationship and you’re able to stay current on what’s required, it’s a huge benefit to have a property manager who is educated on all the legal and liability issues that concern you.
Maintenance and Repairs
If there is ever a problem at your property, or a maintenance concern or a report from a neighbor that your tenants are being too loud, your property manager will take care of these things so you don’t have to. Property managers will also be able to provide service at all hours. We have an on-call person after hours who takes care of answering phone calls and assessing emergency situations. If necessary, someone can get out there in the middle of the night or over the weekend.
There are lots of reasons to choose a professional Centralia property management company instead of trying to do it all yourself. If you’d like to hear more, please contact us at T.J. Guyer, and we’d be happy to tell you about our services.
