ADVERTISING PARTNERS
HIRE A PROPERTY MANAGER

“Moving is stressful, hiring a good property manager doesn’t have to be.
We hope you find these hints helpful in your search”

1.) Choose a realtor to provide property management services who is knowledgeable about the field and the local market.

A number of licensed realtors are offering property management services in Killeen and Harker Heights, TX. However, they do not necessarily have the knowledge, training, experience and ability to provide the most effective property management for your real estate investment. It is important to investigate the licensing, the length of time the realtor has provided the services, how many and what kind of supporting staff members they employ and, if they sell and provide property management services, how much of their personal time they dedicate to each task.

2.) Interview multiple realtors.

The more property managers you interview, the more knowledgeable you will become in the process. You can learn about and compare the policies and procedures provided by multiple companies. An initial interview should be scheduled at the property itself. Each investment property in Harker Heights or Killeen is different and must be approached as such. During this interview process, you will have the opportunity to establish a successful interaction with the property manager giving you an idea of what you can expect in your future relationship. Prior to making a final decision, make an appointment to visit the realtor’s office and meet the staff. This is also a good time to review the property management agreement with the realtor.

3.) Ask for references.

Following the in-office interview, you may wish to request references from each of the realtors you feel comfortable working with. Each of them should gladly supply you with three references. These include a long term customer, a fairly new customer (someone who has recently got their home in Harker Heights rented through them) and a third of their choice. Verifying these references will give you a good idea of what kind of short term and long term relationship you can expect with the realtor.

4.) How does the realtor feel about customer service?

Your home or rental property in Killeen is one of the largest investments you might make in your lifetime. Wouldn’t it be great if you could always get a hold of the realtor you hire to manage your property? Choosing a realtor that strives to offer great customer service will give you peace of mind.

5.) Financial reports should be accurate and easy to understand.

Proper accounting of revenues and expenses is an important key successfully managing your property in Killeen. It can be a difficult task to accomplish without the use of good quality and specific software. Software investment and support is a huge and expensive part of the property management companies’ resources. Ask to review the types of reports you may expect to see in your monthly reporting package.

6.) Marketing Resources. 

Marketing your property for rent to the correct customer base is essential. Ask about what kind of marketing plan the realtor plans to use to lease your property in Harker Heights. Research shows that up to 67% people actively searching the rental market prefer to use technology in furthering their search. Find out what kind of technologies the realtor will employ while marketing your property.

7.) CHECK, CHECK, CHECK!
