Professional Property Management

Rentals You'll Love

 


Successful property management requires five specific responsibilities. The areas that landlords and property managers need to focus on are:
  • Sales
  • Maintenance
  • Accounting
  • Documentation or administration
  • Communication

Sales

Property managers need to be able to sell prospective tenants on a vacant property. This includes marketing a vacant home and selling that property’s best features.

Accounting

As property managers, we deal with a lot of money. We have escrow accounts that we hold money in and we need to account for those funds. It’s important that we can document the kind of income and expenses our owners have on a monthly basis.

Maintenance

Making sure a property is ready to be rented out is another responsibility of property managers. Once a tenant is in there, we have to be able to troubleshoot any repair needs or problems with a tenant. Then, a property manager will decide who to dispatch and how to repair the problem.

Administration and Documentation

A huge part of property management is documentation. Administrative skills are needed to keep track of lease signings, invoices and inspections. There is a lot of information to share and store.

Communication

The biggest part of managing a property effectively is communication. It’s important to communicate effectively with tenants, owners and vendors. We need to make sure everyone is on the same page and 5 Responsibilities of Property Management Companies in St. Petersburg, FLaware of what needs to be done.
