Did you know that Nesbitt Realty & Management manages real estate and advises renters in Manchester Lakes?
- Will you reside and work not far from your rental property? Northern Virginia and to a certain extent Manchester Lakes 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 rental management? Some landlords enjoy the chore of identifying reliable tenants. Some property owners think that dispatching handymen and managing handymen is rewarding. Thus, they get a kick out of fielding calls at strange hours. In contrast, if you don't need more work, you may not want the work of managing your own property. If, you don't want the work from the routine chores, you would be smart to consider hiring a property manager to handle your investment.
- Do you like argue with your tenants? If you have tenants, eventually you will have disagreements. Even if you find hands-on management rewarding of the property, you may not find arguing with your tenants is pleasant. More importantly, if you're not a trained property manager, you can get in deep trouble quickly if you don't understand tenant's right. If you've already got a full-plate, then the last thing you need is extra worries. For this reason, hiring a property manager may be a smart (and tax deductible) expense.
- Can you afford the cost? Let's face it. hiring 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 paying 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 engage 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 duties? The more you know about rental management in today's litigious society the more you'll know the value of paying an experience manager in your corner.
- Do you have access to a network of maintenance people? Every investment must have maintenance. If your tenant contacts in need of maintenance will you know who to call and what to do in a timely fashion? Do you know which repairs are the property owner's responsibility and which repairs are a renter responsibility. If not, you might want to move toward employing a property management company.
