While a good many millionaires will agree that their fortunes were made in real estate, the honest ones will also tell you that they’ve probably lost a few fortunes in real estate along the way. This is a risky business and every property purchased doesn’t always pan out to become a successful investment. There are many risks involved in real estate investing and you would be going to battle unprepared if you didn’t take a moment to carefully study these risks and work to avoid them when planning your property investment strategy.

What Do Property Managers Do?

Property managers can come in the form of a person or a company. Either way, what they do can be simply summarized as: getting paid to oversee a real estate property on behalf of the owner.

The responsibilities of a property manager include (as applicable) dealing with the property’s tenants, facilitating repairs or improvements necessary for homes, assuring overall cleanliness and general maintenance of the property, landscaping, etc. This is, of course, in line with any arrangements the property manager has agreed upon with the owner.

It is possible for a property manager to handle multiple properties and interface with several owners. Services offered may also differ depending on the type of property and what was initially agreed upon with the owner. For example, in the case of vacation homes, which are only periodically occupied, greater security measures may have to be employed by the property manager. The property manager must also be certain that everything is in place and ready whenever the owner comes over for vacation.

There are also cases when the property manager is tasked to handle a commercial property, wherein one of the requirements is to operate the business (if the manager is qualified) as well as managing the property itself.

For a property manager to be effective, he or she must be able to maintain a good relationship not only with the owner of the property but also the tenants. This should be done on top of the core duty of maintaining, beautifying and keeping in order the real estate property.

With the right property manager, owners can rest assured that their properties are in good hands and tenants can enjoy the satisfaction of living in a secure, well-maintained and beautiful home.
