Top 3 Things to Consider When Hiring a Commercial Property Manager

Whether you own a single property or multiple properties, managing the daily responsibilities associated with tenants while ensuring your asset is protected can be overwhelming. Landlords often hire a property manager to handle the ongoing maintenance and accounting tasks allowing them to preserve positive tenant relationships.

If you are hiring a property manager in Atlanta, these tips will help guide your decision:

Hire a company that specializes in property management instead of an individual. Companies provide greater resources with teams in place for maintenance, accounting and management services. And with multiple properties and solid vendor relationships they often pass savings through to the clients.

Make sure they have experience. It might sound obvious, but find a company that manages multiple property types – including the type you own – rather than specializing. The company should also have good credibility and tenure within the industry so be sure to check references.

Determine it is a good fit with regards to geographic proximity and management style. Find a company that can easily access your property on a regular basis or in an emergency. The closer they are the more efficient and cost effective their services will be. And as a landlord, make sure you’ll receive the communication you need to trust your asset is in good hands – whether that’s weekly reports or monthly meetings.

Allowing someone else to manage your commercial property assets is a big decision. Finding the right partner, however, makes your life easier and your tenant relationships stronger.
