Highlighted aspects of Old Town

Investors rely on our local real estate brokerage to manage their properties in Old Town.

While you will find quite a few advantages from hiring a rental property manager, there is also a cost associated with hiring a property manager. In addition to the fees of property management, there are other reasons why property management might not be for every landlord. Consider the following questions to figure out if employing a property management company would be the right option for your property. Factors to consider:
  • Do you reside and work close to your rental property? Northern Virginia and to a certain extent Old Town is a very transient area. 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 identifying reliable tenants. Some property owners find that managing maintence and managing cleaners is rewarding. Hence, they enjoy fielding early morning calls. But, if you don't want more work, you may not want the work of managing your own investment. If, you don't need the work from the day-to-day chores, you would be smart to consider employing a property manager to handle your property.
  • Do you like manage your renters? If you have tenants, eventually you will have to deal with issues. Even if you find hands-on management rewarding of the property, you may not find dealing with your renters is a joy. More importantly, if you're not a trained rental property manager, you can get in deep trouble quickly if you don't understand landlord-tenant law. If you've already got your hands full, the last thing you want is more to worry about. Therefore, hiring a property manager may be a good (and tax deductible) expense.
  • Can you afford the cost? Let's face it. employing a property manager is much more attractive choice if you can afford it.  If monthly cash-flow is not an issue, you'll likely 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 hire a 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 duties?  The more you know about rental property management in today's litigious culture the more you'll know the benefit of having an expert on your side.
  • Do you have access to a network of maintenance people? Every property needs maintenance. If your tenant emails for repairs will you know who to call and what to do in a prompt manner? Do you know which repairs are the property owner's expense and which repairs are a tenant responsibility. If not, you might want to move toward hiring a property manager.
