In a customer service oriented industry it’s important to continually meet and exceed expectations. Here are 3 simple questions to ask a company you consider hiring to manage your residential rental property:
Are there any upfront costs?
It may be personal preference whether you pay for services before or after they are completed, but there is something to be said about hiring a company without having to pay anything up front. Although it takes time and resources to bring on a new customer, your Miami property management company should be working feverishly to find you a qualified tenant and their commission should depend on their performance.
What happens if my property doesn’t rent in a reasonable amount of time?
Acting in the owners’ best interest should be the top priority of a quality management firm and that means keeping vacancy time down. If all requirements are met by the owner in terms of insuring the home is ready to rent, there are very few reasons a home should not rent. This applies to almost any market.
Are there any long-term contracts?
Some commitment is necessary but what happens if changes in your life require you to sell the rental property or live in it yourself? Ensure the management companies cancellation policies are in-line with your long term goals.
