A good property manager will have a number of resources at their disposal to help them find the best tenants for your property - plus they have the added benefit of experience and insights when it comes to tenant selection and will leave nothing to chance when it comes to protecting your asset.
A good property manager uses a variety of strict screening methods to eliminate bad tenants and identify quality ones. They have access to industry databases that detail tenants' rental history and identify those who have caused problems in the past. They can also conduct background checks, interview potential tenants and evaluate references to find tenants who will pay on time and respect your property.
A skilled property manager will have the necessary experience to ask prospective tenants the right questions in order to extract the required information. Obviously, no-one can be discriminated against on the basis of race, colour, religion, culture etc, but an experienced property manager who has been in the industry for some time, will have an invaluable depth of intuition and insight when it comes to screening potential tenants.
3. Promoting your property
The rental market is going through some challenging times and rents are down, vacancies are up and there's heightened competition for quality tenants. A good property manager will market your property to the widest possible audience using a variety of promotional tools (including clever copywriting and quality photography) and diverse communication channels (including real estate websites, databases and multimedia advertising) - and they'll use their experience to showcase it in such a way that it appeals to the widest possible target market.
But finding the right tenant is only half the story. Good property managers aren't only skilled at finding the best tenants, they also fulfil a valuable role as an intermediary between the tenant and the landlord, pre-empting issues and sorting out any problems which is a key factor in adding value to your investment over the longer-term.
