Now let’s take a look at 5 of the best reasons to hire a Property Manager like the professionals you’ll find at NHL Property Management. 

 

#1 - They Handle the Details 

Hiring a Property Manager takes the headache out of owning an income producing property. Whether you live out of state or two houses down, treating your property like an investment instead of a personal residence is key. From utility billing to legal action, having a trusted Property Manager in your corner keeps the cash flowing. Without a Property Manager, things like utility bills, city citations, and lost months of rent can really start to pile up…fast. When you hire NHL Property Management every little detail you might have missed is handled with your interest in mind. 

#2 - They keep the Cash Flowing 

Let’s face it – having an investment property can be a money pit if the tenants in place don’t keep their promises to you. Hiring a Property Management company to stay on top of missed payments means you don’t have to worry. A good Property Manager, like the ones you’ll find at NHL Property Management, watch for missed payments from day one. A tenant should know from the start how important it is that their payments are made timely. In addition to timely payment, a good Property Manager ensures your home is rented at a comparable rate. When rent rates increase in the area, rent on your property should increase as soon as Lease terms allow. 

#3 - They Ensure You’re Up to Code 

A lot of property investors don’t realize that their home requires regular Rental Certification. Some Property Management companies don’t make city requirements a priority. These two factors together can be a costly recipe for disaster. At NHL Property Management, we make sure that your property gets rental certified. Sometimes this means putting an investment into your investment, but following the city ordinances for a rental property is an absolute must. Investing in your home goes a long way to keep your property in great condition. Not to mention it keeps your tenants safe, happy, and paying.  

#4 - They Keep it Occupied 

When a tenant leaves it should be the number one priority to get it rent ready and occupied, ASAP. A good turnaround, from vacancy to occupied, is 45 days. A great turnaround is 30 days. Depending on the scope of work after a tenant vacates, NHL Property Management typically falls in the ‘great’ category. A walk through and estimate should be done within 5 days of move out. That gets the ball rolling right away and ensures a smooth transition on your way to occupancy. As soon as a final cleaning is done, showings begin. Hiring a Property Manager also means you have a Real Estate professional to pick the very best tenant for your home. 

#5 - They Protect Your Investment 

Keeping your home in its best condition is sometimes harder said than done. Hiring a Property Manager means you won’t just have a viable investment through the end of a Lease, but through the next decade and beyond. From gutter cleaning and yard maintenance, to furnace filter replacement and furnace certification – NHL Property Management handles the hard stuff. Anytime a call comes in for maintenance to your home, you want a Property Manager to attend to the issue fast and for a fair price. Having eyes and ears on the ground helps spot any small issues that could turn into a major issue down the line.
