Our top 6 tips for hiring a Property Management Company

What is important to consider when you are considering hiring a property management company?  What criteria do you use in order to decide who is right for you?

To make it just a little easier Cleaver Property Management have put together our tops six tips for selecting the right property management company for you.

Tip 1 – Make sure that you hire someone that you feel comfortable working with.  After all you are going to be working closely with them and you need to feel a strong sense of trust, so make sure you are working with someone who has been around for a while.

Tip 2 – Make sure that you hire local people.  Having local knowledge and contacts is essential for a good property management company, so make sure you hire one with local experience

Tip 3 – Make sure that your new property management company is approved by a governing body, or association like ARMA

Tip 4 – Work with a specialist company.  In other words a company that manages property for a living and not one that sells houses and does a bit of property management ‘on the side’

Tip 5 – Be specific about the questions you ask and the services that you require.  Be clear at the start!

Tip 6 – Ask to see the potential property management companies testimonials, or case studies.  You might even want to speak to their current clients.

Hiring the correct property management company is important.  We hope that our top six tips has given you some food for thought.  We also hope that you will consider asking us about how we will measure up against these tips and please feel free to talk to us about using our services.
