Sure you could rent out your house yourself, but why take on the problems and headaches involved in being a landlord when there are excellent property management companies – like Propman Property Management – available?

 

 

Here are 10 reasons you should hire a property management company:

 

  1. Thorough tenant screening

The last thing you need is a terrible tenant. As experienced property managers, we have screened thousands of applicants, so we are likely to spot any potential red flags in an application.

  1. Less tenant turnover

Finding good tenants means finding ones who can and will stay in your property. When your property sits empty, that is money out of your pocket. And because people know and respect Propman, they come to our website regularly to check for current available rentals, resulting in a regular flow of people looking to rent homes.

  1. Local contact for tenant problems

If a tenant has complaints, like a barking dog issue, or if something breaks, you have a local contact who can field the call and handle the situation on your behalf. This is especially important for out-of-town owners.

  1. Emergency contact

Do you really want tenants calling you in the middle of the night because their heat went out?  Our staff is trained to handle any type of emergency situation. We have the staff and resources to take this worry off your mind.

  1. Rent paid on time

Propman has a strict policy on rental payments. We make our monthly fee when the rents come in, so we are especially motivated. If there is a problem with rent collection, we are versed in the proper steps to take, including eviction if necessary.

  1. Repair resources always available

Would you know what to do if the plumbing stops up or the air conditioning goes out? Propman maintains solid relationships with vendors in all the trades. When a problem happens, we can immediately jump to action.

  1. Save money on repairs

Since have long-term relationships with vendors like plumbers, roofers, electricians, appliance repair and suppliers, for example, they give us priority pricing based on our volume. We pass along this pricing directly to you.

  1. Increased property value

When properties are maintained properly, they generally increase in value. Propman provides regular inspections and repairs, and initiates conversations on property upgrades or maintenance issues to help maintain the value of your property.

  1. You stay within the law

You don’t want to have to learn Virginia’s laws against discrimination, landlord/tenant issues, collection processes, and inspections. Our knowledge of these regulations is part of the value we offer our property owners.

  1. You have freedom

You get to enjoy all the benefits of property ownership without any of the headaches. That means extra money in your pocket and more time to enjoy it without worrying about your property.

If you are considering renting out your property, please give Propman Property Management a call. We are experts in the Northern Virginia market and can make the process of renting out your home profitable in more ways than one.
