How does partnering with a property management company increase your property value? A team of experts covers every basic rental management task and takes on all the stressful mishaps that happen along the way. So not only could you be preserving your property’s current worth in a fraction of the time – you’re also missing out on making more money. Here’s how diligent management provided by a property manager can increase your property value.
Faster, Cheaper Maintenance
Property managers provide immediate access to a network of licensed, insured professionals such as plumbers, electricians, etc., all at a discount. This helps you avoid poorly repaired or prolonged damage that could affect your property value. Should any piece of your property fall into disrepair, the technicians are prompt to respond. This could save you hundreds to thousands in repair and replacements, especially when calls happen on the weekend or the middle of the night, or you manage the property remotely.
You don’t have to notify the property management team about damage. They’re proactive about identifying maintenance situations that could harm your property. As leasing experts, they start by outlining tenant behaviors that would depreciate value. They walk tenants through these behaviors from the get-go and crack down on the rules when they’re violated. They also schedule regular on-site inspections so your property’s efficiency is routinely assessed. They spot-check for everything from potential fire and flooding hazards to run-of-the-mill drywall patching and lawn care.
Your property manager’s network of vendors might include specialty services that add competitive value. For example, RPM Sunstate partners with the Jacksonville Sheriffs Watch Program to provide clients with crime free housing programs.
Better Organized Tenant Communication
While it’s hard to tend to tenants on your own schedule, a property management company immediately answers their call. Because your investment’s value is a property manager’s focus, their communication with a tenant is both preventative and quick to resolve issues.
For example, once the property manager is alerted to any noise complaints or functional problems, the report is immediately documented and a reply follows suit. But the speedy addressal goes two ways, which means that property managers act fast to make tenants meet demands. They ensure timely rent collection and eviction notices – and their rental management expertise can assure you they’re in the right.
A third party managing your tenant communication and bookkeeping also means you’re less liable in the event that the tenant claims wrongdoing. You’ll have a constant, manageable source of income with no gaps and less legal concern.
To get rental rates with the most return, property managers are always on the lookout for what can be improved and modernized about your property. If you have multiple properties or manage your investments remotely, it’s difficult to plan or oversee renovations. It might even be tricky to know what upgrades or repairs are needed.
Property managers know what you’re up against in the real estate market, so they’ll have suggestions to make your property the best it can be in the shortest amount of time. From cabinetry to countertops, from flooring to roofing – with a property manager’s on-site inspections and network of contractor relationships, they’ll help you to do more than preserve the property value. They’ll set it apart.
Property management companies have rigorous screening processes to help find you renters that will stay put, take care of your property, never raise trouble, and always make their payments in full at the time it’s due. All of those factors increase the value and livability of your investment property.
Credit scores, criminality, and more all determine whether a prospective tenant will add revenue to your investment. With higher quality tenants, you’re much less likely to come up against scams or lawsuits. In fact, you’ll generally avoid legal trouble that concerns property abuse or lease termination, which are both costly. A positive tenant and neighbor experience also makes the location more desirable overall. It’s beneficial for all parties involved.
Less Lengthy Vacancies
Putting your property in high demand makes it more valuable. While property managers encourage longer retention, they also provide comprehensive marketing. You get more inquiries, save on the advertising dollars, and remove the time and effort of scheduling showings, signings, and inspections.
As a matter of fact, in the event that there is a vacancy in your property and all of those things need to occur, property managers also handle all aspects of the leasing process. On the one hand, you could save the expenses of preparing the property for new tenants. On the other, the time lapse should be quick and painless. A filled property is a valuable one.
Competitive Market Analysis
The most obvious way that property managers increase your investment’s value? With a full-time team of rental management experts using an array of market rate tools, you have hard evidential data to back your rental prices. Your property manager will constantly adjust how your property competes with the market rate so you always get exactly what you’re worth. And if that falls short of the previous pricing, they’ll find new ways to bring it back up.
