What Do Property Managers Do?

Property managers can come in the form of a person or a company. Either way, what they do can be simply summarized as: getting paid to oversee a real estate property on behalf of the owner.

The responsibilities of a property manager include (as applicable) dealing with the property’s tenants, facilitating repairs or improvements necessary for homes, assuring overall cleanliness and general maintenance of the property, landscaping, etc. This is, of course, in line with any arrangements the property manager has agreed upon with the owner.

It is possible for a property manager to handle multiple properties and interface with several owners. Services offered may also differ depending on the type of property and what was initially agreed upon with the owner. For example, in the case of vacation homes, which are only periodically occupied, greater security measures may have to be employed by the property manager. The property manager must also be certain that everything is in place and ready whenever the owner comes over for vacation.

There are also cases when the property manager is tasked to handle a commercial property, wherein one of the requirements is to operate the business (if the manager is qualified) as well as managing the property itself.

For a property manager to be effective, he or she must be able to maintain a good relationship not only with the owner of the property but also the tenants. This should be done on top of the core duty of maintaining, beautifying and keeping in order the real estate property.

With the right property manager, owners can rest assured that their properties are in good hands and tenants can enjoy the satisfaction of living in a secure, well-maintained and beautiful home.

What are Real Estate Agents?

  • Real estate agents are go betweens for buyers and sellers for real estate property. 
  • All real estate agents have to be licensed by their state or such as of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
  • Every real estate agent has to be affiliated with a real estate broker. A broker is a real estate profession with higher educational requirements and a minimum of 3 years of full time real estate experience.
  • A realtor and broker have to be a member of the National Association of Realtors.
  • Both realtors and brokers agree to follow the high standards of ethics and participate in any continuing education programs.
  • A real estate agent represents a buyer or seller, renter or landlord, having their best interest at heart.
  • Agents can work in a dual capacity in certain circumstances representing both parties.
  • A real estate agent’s duty is to truth and honesty and will explain what obligations state law imposes.

It is alright for you to shop around and decide on which agents and agencies you could work with comfortably, it is fair and ethical that you work with only one agent to help you buy or sell your home. This is the reason why real estate agents will ask you if you already have representation prior to working with you.
