As a landlord, you've likely discovered that property management requires significant time and effort. Choosing a property manager allows you to take a step back and free up more time for yourself. This can remove a whole lot of stress from the situation and, if you choose the right agent, allows you to rely on the experience and expertise that only an accomplished property manager can offer. We outline 4 key reasons you should be using a property manager. **It will save you time & headaches** It can be a full-time job to track rental payments, collect late fees, and deal with complaints and repairs. It may also become a constant source of stress. Our team of experienced property managers will free you from the day-to-day responsibilities of your investment so you have time to focus on other priorities. **Keep it professional** A property manager acts as a single point of contact for all landlord queries as well as acts as a buffer between the landlord and the tenant, ensuring the relationship remains professional and amicable. Owners who are too personally involved can be too lenient on certain issues, or too defensive about others. Property managers can help you keep things on a strictly professional level. **End-to-end assistance** Your property manager has the expertise and experience to help you every step of the rental process from determining the accurate rental value of your property, to assisting you to rent out your property by sourcing and screening prospective tenants on your behalf. Your agent will prepare the lease agreement, collect the deposit and ﬁrst month's rental on your behalf as well as inspect the premises prior to the tenant moving in. They will also coordinate all repairs and maintenance. Why do all of this yourself? **Payment Management** Your property manager will manage all payments relating to your property from rental collection, to payment of the Body Corporate or Homeowner's Association levy, Municipal Accounts, Metering Services, Maintenance Services and any other payments you require.
