You are already one step ahead if you made the decision to enlist the help of a property manager to maintain your business or commercial property. Over the years, more and more real estate investors are taking advantage of the expertise and hands-on efforts put by property managers who act as landlords on their behalf. Read on to find out more about the process involved in hiring a property manager if you are a real estate investor or property owner.


Let's say that you own a property in Garden City. Naturally, your target market would be those who are thinking of leasing a home in Garden City, Michigan. This is a city in Wayne County which is home to the world's first K-Mart, situated in 29600 Ford Road.

Those who are renting a home in Garden City, Michigan find the neighborhood to be a pleasant place to live in. Now, as a property owner, it is your responsibility to attract tenants and maintain the place that they are renting from you. If you have other properties to see to or if you do not want to handle the landlord-related tasks yourself, then you need to hire a Garden City property manager.

When doing so, make sure that the individual is already familiar with the inner workings of the local real estate industry in the area. The person to whom you will assign the Garden City management tasks to should also know how to attract tenants so that your business will be profitable enough to cover the maintenance costs.


Now, what are the things that you need to consider when hiring a Garden City rental property manager? As mentioned earlier, the property manager should be familiar with the local area – and extensive experience with local real estate trends and laws for tenants would be a plus factor.


Should you hire a property manager through a residential leasing company in Garden City, or someone who works independently?

Hiring a property manager through a leasing company does have its pros and cons, but the biggest advantage is that you have the backing of the real estate company in case something goes wrong. Meanwhile, hiring someone who works independently will allow you to work as closely or as separately with the property manager as you want.


When employing a property manager, the location of the property determines the cost or hiring one – as well as the number of units or properties that need to be managed. There are some who charge a flat monthly rate while others charge a percentage off the rent collected.

As a property owner, how big or small a say do you have in making decisions like approving tenants?

Finally, decide how big or small a responsibility you will be assigning to the property manager. Would you like to have the final say in approving tenants? Would you like to take over the payment of mortgage, property taxes and insurance – or also hand it over to the property manager?

At the end of the day, it is entirely up to you as the property owner to decide which tasks to assign to the property manager so make sure to hire the perfect candidate who can work with you in growing your business.
