Do You Need A Property Manager (Or Letting Agent)?
When investing in property, you will have to make a lot of decisions.
One of those decisions is if you need a letting agent or not.
Many things will influence your decisions.
But to reduce risks and be sure you are making the correct decisions you should consider following the Property Pro Investment Mentoring Program.
If you have a lot of properties and wish to have a life away from your property investment businesses, a letting agent is a great idea.
They can handle a lot of your time-consuming tasks associated with handling your own properties, as a letting agent is your barrier between your tenants and your family.
That is why you can only benefit from having a good letting agent.
For example, if you have dealt with your own rental properties before, without a letting agent, you will understand that your tenants will contact you at all hours when things go wrong.
A letting agent does away with the need for tenants to have your contact details and is able to handle a lot of things for you while you sleep through the night.
Especially when you consider the magnitude of tenants as you purchase more and more properties.
A few late night phone calls and many rental property owners are ready to get out of the business of renting properties.
Most letting agent companies also have qualified staff that specializes in maintaining properties and can handle a lot of things that go wrong.
But be sure that you do your homework and choose a letting agent that you are sure will handle your property in a way that works for you.
Because the incorrect choice could lead to you having properties standing empty and thus a loss of income and reduced profit.
The cost for these services may be included in your fees for using the property management service or certain services could charge additional fees.
Your property manager or property management team is often the best source to find contractors to handle the repairs they cannot make for you internally.
It’s nice to know that you won’t be getting up bleary-eyed in the morning calling around for a plumber on the first exceptionally cold day of winter.
Furthermore, it is good to know that someone else can deal with some of the negative and time-consuming things about owning rental properties.
Letting agents are also trained to handle the legal aspects when tenants cannot make the rent for months on end.
This is after all a business and while you can empathize with the circumstances that leave some people unable to pay their rent.
You need the income from their property in order to cover your expenses. It’s much easier to leave some of the less pleasant tasks to someone else.
Letting Agents take responsibility for the advertising of your property. The cleaning up and retouches that are necessary between tenants.
You then have the peace of mind that your properties and tenants are in good hands when you want to take a vacation and aren’t there to oversee everything.
The more properties you have, the better it is to make use of the services of a reliable letting agent company.
