Although there are many benefits from hiring a property manager, there is also a cost associated with employing a property manager. In addition to the costs of rental management, there are other reasons why property management may not be for every landlord. Think about the following questions to determine whether employing a rental property manager would be the right decision for you. Factors to consider:
  • Do you live and work near your investment? Northern Virginia and to a certain extent Fairfax County is a very transient region. Northern Virginia has more than our share of military, diplomats, State Department, political appointees and academia.  If you're getting transferred across the country or around the world, it might be a good idea to let a professional manage your rental. Even simple tasks can get complicated very quickly when you aren't around to manage the details.
  • Do you want to handle the details of property management? Some landlords look forward to the task of finding good tenants. Some landlords find that keeping up with maintenance and managing little tasks is rewarding. Accordingly, they have fun fielding late night calls. However, if you don't need another job, you may not want the chores of managing your own rental property. If, you don't need the work from the day-to-day management of your properties, you should probably think about hiring a rental property manager to manage your rental property.
  • Do you like fight with your tenants? If you have tenants, eventually you will have issues. Even if you find hands-on management rewarding of the property, you may not find arguing with your tenants is fun. In addition, if you're not a professional property manager, you can get in a mess quickly if you don't understand the law. If you've already got a full-plate, the last thing you want is extra hassles. Therefore, hiring a rental property manager might be a good (and tax deductible) expense.
  • Can you afford the cost? Let's face it. hiring a rental property manager is much more attractive choice if you can afford it.  If monthly cash-flow is not a problem, you'll probably save money by employing a property manager and writing off the expense.  But if at the end of every month cash is tight, you might not want to employ a property manager.
  • Can you afford the risk? Do you understand the Virginia Residential Landlord Tenant Act? Do you know the tenant's rights? Do you know your responsibilities?  The more you know about property management in today's litigious culture the more you'll understand the benefit of having an expert in your corner.
  • Do you have a list of maintenance people? Each rental property must have maintenance. If your tenant contacts in need of maintenance will you know who to phone and what to do in a prompt manner? Do you know which repairs are the landlord's expense and which repairs are a tenant expense. If not, you should consider hiring a property manager.
