If you own rental property or a holiday home, you'll know by now that you can't always take care of it. It's hard to do when you live in a different location or simply just don’t have the time. The question begs though, if you aren't looking after your home then who is?
Hiring the right property manager is one of the most important elements of your home investment. Here are three sound reasons why you should hire a professional property manager to take care of it.
They get their hands dirty
A good property manager provides hands on attention to your property, and isn't afraid to get them dirty. They carry out property inspections, managing of contractors, managing tenant complaints and queries, bill payments, routine property maintenance, dealing with complaining neighbours or council related enquiries. These are all things you'll need to take care of, but with a property manager you can let someone else take care of it. At HQM Properties we become your eyes and ears, managing your home as if it were our own.
More than a to-do list
Large properties require ongoing maintenance that homeowners sometimes can't even predict. If your secondary home is not attended to often, things can crop up that would have cost less had they been noticed. A property manager is there to make sure nothing is missed. From landscaped lawns to a leaking roof or faulty electrical wiring, a professional property manager maintains the overall state of your home.
Our team of property managers are experts in their fields and have the required knowledge and experience to understand your needs, often before you even know they exist.
Count the cents
Large homes tend to have complicated and expensive structures, fixtures and fittings. Smaller homes have their own quirks too that come with their own set of challenges. There are several potential disasters that can occur in a home that isn't occupied or supervised. That's where a property manager is essential - at the end of the day, a property is a long-term asset that needs focused care and attention. The annual cost of employing a home management company will seem insignificant when compared to an expensive crisis that could have been avoided.
