6 Reasons Why Property Management Services Should Be Your Next Step
If you have limited knowledge of real estate or have owned one for so long, property management is the key to increasing your expertise. It allows you work with other owners like you who want to go into this business and rent out their properties for a period of time. Property managers build or solidify existing relationships with stakeholders in the industry and these include other real estate owners, investors and individuals interested in these kinds of property. Property managers also look for clients who will buy and sell these properties in the present or in the future. They also understand the local laws and finances when it comes to real estate within a particular area.
Roles and Responsibilities of a Property Manager
A property manager is one who acts as an intermediary between the owner of a property (landlord) and those who wish to lease (tenant). If you decide to be a property manager, these are some of the roles and responsibilities to be carried out when doing a real estate transaction for rental properties:
- Vacancies in the marketing sector
- Showing properties to interested/proposed tenants
- Sorting, collating, collecting and processing rental applications
- Tenant screening and approving prospects
- Signing Lease(s)
- Move-in and move-out procedures
- Maintenance management
- Tenant relations management
- Collecting Rent
- Procuring and processing security deposits
- Observing Federal, State and local real estate and landlord-tenant laws
Getting a Property Management License
Before getting your property management license, there are several things you need to know. The first thing is understanding the laws of the state in which you own your real estate property or want to operate your real estate or property management business. If you must manage rental property, it must be within the confines of these laws and requirements. Laws vary from state to state and there are heavy consequences when these rules are broken. Some laws take a Federal stance and you may want to look that up before procuring your license.
For most states, a property manager must operate a real estate business with a broker’s or property management license. This license must be operated under a licensed real estate brokerage firm. It is not unusual to see property managers doubling as real estate brokers or owners. To obtain this license as a property manager or a real estate broker, you must obtain a license from the state governments or real estate boards. A license is important because it separates the real brokers from the inexperienced and gives credence to the business. It also gives you the authority to engage in property management. In addition, a broker’s license is important for property managers because it helps them understand the way to handle trust funds.
