Start With the Basics
If you've never considered working with a property manager before, start by considering what you need. Owning a rental property and looking for the right property management partner in Bradenton begins with understanding the basics of being a landlord. You'll need a property manager who can take over the landlord tasks while meeting your financial goals.
Expert Marketing Makes a Difference
How do you find the right renter for your rental property? Marketing! Creating a property listing, shooting professional-quality photos, and listing your property in all of the best places helps get the word out about your available property.
However, it's more than just jotting down some bullet points about your property and grabbing your cellphone for some photos. Look for a property manager who creates a listing that stops the scroll of a potential tenant. From describing the features of your Bradenton rental property to posting eye-catching photos, your property manager must know how to create a property listing that brings in the right tenants.
Tenant Screening Protects You
When someone responds to your property listing, it's time to sign a lease and move them into your property, right? Not so fast!
A quality property listing will generate a lot of interest in your property—but not every applicant is a good choice as your next renter. Expert Bradenton property management knows how to effectively screen all tenant applicants to find the best tenant for your rental. Choosing the wrong renter can not only be an expensive mistake but a punishing one. Make sure your property manager has a thorough screening process and follows the law for fairly choosing your tenants while protecting your assets.
Your property management partner also has to work with a sense of urgency when finding a new renter: downtime via vacant properties costs you money! Your property manager must find the best tenant—quickly—to make sure you generate the income you need.
Rent Collection Must Be Hassle-Free
Property owners don't generate income until the rent comes in. You should always make sure your property manager has an efficient and accurate way to collect the rent every month, is able to update accounts, and provides accurate financial reports.
Your property manager also needs a process to pursue late rental payments. Using an online payment system reduces the number of late payments—but there's always a month or two when a tenant might miss their due date for payments.
On-time rental payments mean property owners get paid faster! Your Bradenton property manager must prioritize the rent collection process to make rental payments hassle-free for tenants—and on-time for the property owners they serve.
Maintenance Should Never Be Subpar
The maintenance services you provide for tenants can be either a pro or a con. Your maintenance services should work to make renters want to keep calling your Bradenton rental property home—not cause them to move on after the lease ends.
- When your maintenance services are expert-level, tenants love your property more! Renters always want to stay where they never have to struggle with maintenance requests.
- When your maintenance services are subpar, tenants become frustrated by a poorly-managed property and maintenance requests that are never resolved. Get ready for negative reviews!
Your Bradenton property management company should provide expert-level maintenance! From seasonal preventative maintenance to 24/7 availability for emergency maintenance issues, property investors can't afford to provide anything less than the very best. This means your property management partner must be the best of the best, as well.
- Make sure your property manager can also adapt to situational requirements.
- Your renters still expect prompt maintenance, even during disaster scenarios or during social distancing.
- The best property managers can adjust operations to care for your properties and their maintenance needs without sacrificing the quality of the services they provide.
Inspections Protect Your Property
At Gulf Coast Property Management, we know that maintenance and inspections go hand-in-hand. Caring for your Bradenton investments requires keeping an eye on the condition of your properties year-round! When you trust a professional property manager to handle your properties, you need to know that they visit your properties regularly.
Inspections help property managers make sure tenants are following the rules in the lease agreement. Routine inspections also help your property manager recognize a potential maintenance issue that could become an expensive repair. Catching and repairing a problem early can save money!
Before choosing a property manager, make sure they carry out inspections, including:
- Move-in and move-out inspections for every tenant and every property
- Mid-lease inspections that ensure your renters are caring for your Bradenton rental
- Seasonal inspections to stay ahead of repairs inside and outside of your properties across the year.
A pre-planned schedule of inspections is a critical part of good property management! In addition to scheduled inspections, a Bradenton property manager should also be able to undertake unplanned drive-by inspections to check the exteriors of your properties between scheduled inspections visually.
Problem-Solving Is Required
Even with the best tenant screening process, bad tenants happen. Choosing a property manager who understands the legal eviction process in Bradenton step-by-step is crucial. If you are relying on them to handle these issues for you, you can't depend on a hobbyist.
Your property manager also needs to stay up to date on landlord-tenant laws. How does a change in the law affect your residents or your Bradenton rentals? Your property manager makes sure your properties are above board—and that you operate in compliance with all current regulations.
Changes in the way rental properties operate—either through long-term shifts or short-term accommodation for a situation like social distancing—don't present a problem for the best Bradenton property management providers. Problem-solving is part of the job!
