Although an invester will enjoy quite a few advantages from hiring a property management company, there is also an associated expense with employing a rental property manager. In addition to the fees of rental property management, there are other reasons why property management may not be for every landlord. Consider the following questions to decide if employing a rental property manager would be the right choice for your investment. Factors to consider:
  • Will you reside and work close to your rental property? Northern Virginia and to a certain extent Falls Church is a very transient community. Northern Virginia has a lot 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 rental management? Some landlords enjoy the task of identifying good tenants. Some property owners think that maintaining a property and managing handymen is fun. Accordingly, they like taking calls at strange hours. Still, if you don't need another job, you might not want the work 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 consider hiring a property management company to handle your investment.
  • Do you like deal with your tenants? If you have renters, with out a doubt you will have problems. Even if you find hands-on management rewarding of the property, you may not find dealing with your renters is satisfying. More importantly, if you're not a trained rental property manager, you can get into trouble in a hurry if you don't know local regulations. If you've already got your hands full, the last thing you need is extra hassles. For this reason, employing a property manager may be a good (and tax deductible) expense.
  • Can you afford the cost? Let's face it. employing a property management company is much more attractive option if if your cash flow is positive.  If monthly cash-flow is not an issue, you'll likely save money by employing a rental 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 rental property manager.
  • Can you afford the risk? Do you understand the Virginia Residential Landlord Tenant Act? Do you understand the tenant's rights? Do you know your responsibilities?  The more you know about rental property management in today's litigious society the more you'll understand the value of paying an expert on your side.
  • Do you have access to a network of maintenance people? Each investment must have upkeep. If your tenant get in touch withs for maintenance will you know who to hire and what to do in a timely fashion? Do you know which repairs are the landlord's expense and which repairs are a tenant expense. If not, you may want to think about employing a property manager.
