Do You Need A Property Manager?

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you have experience managing rental property yourself?
  • Are you familiar with fair housing and landlord/tenant laws in the jurisdiction(s) where your property is located?
  • Are you knowledgeable about State of Georgia statutes, rules, and regulations and City of LaGrange ordinances regarding property maintenance?
  • Do you have relationships with contractors that insure you 24-hour services at reasonable prices?
  • Do you have a reliable means to determine fair market rent and realistic returns on your investment property?
  • Are you familiar with the legal process and do you have the proper paperwork and notices to deal with non-paying tenants?
  • Do you have a current, professionally drafted lease and related agreements/forms to minimize your exposure to liability should a tenant sue?

If you answered "no" to any of the above questions, it might be prudent to hire a professional management team. The cost of one bad decision could more than offset the cost of hiring a professional manager to help you avoid the pitfalls of rental property ownership.
