What Does a St. Joseph Property Manager Do for Their Fee?

When people call us, the first question they usually ask is – how much are your fees? Just like any other customer, people who use property managers want to know what they are going to get for their money and how the whole process works.

Hiring a professional property management company – whether it’s our company or someone else – can be some of the best money you’ve ever spent. As long as you have a good property manager, you will find that the services you receive are well worth what you pay. Typically, property management is a low margin business. The fees are reasonable and you can avoid a lot of the headaches that come with taking care of a rental property. You also need to remember that any fees you pay to your property manager are completely tax deductible, so that makes the service extremely reasonable to owners.

In general, property managers will advertise your property and do all of the marketing associated with finding a tenant. At Real Property Management, all our advertising and marketing is included in the management fee. You don’t have to pay anything extra for that. We will screen any potential tenants and find someone who is qualified. Our screening process includes seven different areas that we consider when making sure a tenant is a good fit for the property. Once the tenant moves in, property managers handle any difficulties, questions or common maintenance calls. Because we are a national franchise, Real Property Management has a toll-free number that tenants can call at any time if there is a problem or an emergency repair needed.

Once the tenant gives notice, property managers handle the move out process. We do an inspection of the property and take care of returning the tenant’s security deposit. Then, we immediately begin to get the property ready for the rental market again to reduce your vacancy time.

Typically, homeowners don’t really have to do anything when you have a property manager working on your behalf. That’s why you have us. The tenants don’t even know you exist in many cases, and we can take care of every step in the process of property rental. Professional property management can be a great deal for you. It costs less than a cup of coffee a day and most people find it to be an excellent value.
