Choosing a Property Manager

The first step in choosing a property manager is to determine how they can help you achieve the best rental returns for your property. This involves their willingness to inspect the property so they can position it correctly in the current market. Every property differs in features, location, aspect and lifestyle on offer, so make sure you get the property manager to give you feedback on all of those features.

At this time they should be able to make a number of recommendations that will enable you to increase the rental income and maintain the value of your property. Following their inspection a good property manager should prepare a written rental appraisal which will be based on comparable properties for lease, properties that have recently leased and those that are not leasing quickly enough.
