Why Hire a Property Manager?
As a property owner, you want to capitalize on your assets. If you own property that you are not occupying and is either not selling right now or won’t bring the price you need in today’s market, your other option is to rent. “Oh no” you say. The average person is just not equipped to deal with the headaches and potential pitfalls of renting out your property, most likely to a total stranger. The list of questions is long… How do I know I will get paid? What if these people trash my house? Is a handshake good enough? Who pays for the utilities?
While everyone wants to get the most possible dollars out of their investment, hiring a property manager can certainly be money well spent. First of all, the best way to lose money is through a high vacancy rate. A good property manager can help keep your property rented with the fewest possible vacancy days. Secondly, the fee paid to a property manager is tax deductible as an expense of owning an income producing property. And most importantly, the headaches of dealing with tenants, interviewing, qualifying, proper lease paperwork, handling a security deposit, late night emergencies, repair requests, and proper tenant follow-up can all be handled by your property manager.
Thinking of renting out your property? Give us a call at Ashe Rental Agency located in downtown West Jefferson. We can assist you with all aspects of the process…from finding the right tenant, to timely collections, and worst case scenario, with evicting a tenant who fails to pay or properly maintain the property you have worked so hard for.
