Do you need to talk about rental property management in Ballston?

Although an invester will enjoy significant advantages from hiring a property management company, there is also an associated expense with hiring a rental property manager. In addition to the costs of property management, there are other reasons why rental property management may not be for you. Think about the following factors to figure out whether employing a property management company would be the right option for your property. Ask yourself these questions:
  • Will you live and work close to your rental property? Northern Virginia and to a certain extent Ballston 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 look forward to the challenge of finding trustworthy tenants. Some landlords find that dispatching handymen and managing details is pleasurable. Thus, they get a kick out of fielding calls at strange hours. However, if you don't want another job, you might not want the work of managing your own property. When, you want little or nothing to do with the day-to-day chores, you should probably consider employing a property manager to manage your rental property.
  • Do you want to deal with your tenants? If you have tenants, sooner or later you will have to deal with issues. Even if you find hands-on management rewarding of the property, you may not find arguing with your renters is fun. More importantly, if you're not a trained property management company, you can get in deep trouble in a hurry if you don't know landlord obligations. If you've already got a full-plate, the last thing you want is more to worry about. For this reason, employing a property manager might be a smart (and tax deductible) expense.
  • Can you afford the cost? Let's face it. hiring a property management company is much more attractive option if if your cash flow is positive.  If monthly cash-flow is not a problem, you'll probably save money by employing a property management company and writing off the expense.  But if at the end of every month cash is tight, you might not want to pay 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 understand your duties?  The more you know about rental management in today's litigious society the more you'll understand the benefit of paying an expert on your side.
  • Do you have access to a network of maintenance people? Every rental property needs maintenance. When your renter emails in need of property upkeep will you know who to call and what to do in a prompt manner? Do you know which repairs are the landlord's responsibility and which repairs are a renter responsibility. If not, you may want to move toward employing a rental property manager.
