Advantages and Disadvantages of Using a Property Manager

With several rental properties or an apartment building full of tenants, having a property manager can make your business run more smoothly. However, you will need to make you that you hire the right service so your investments don’t fall into the hands of someone incompetent.


One advantage of using a property manager will free up your time, allowing you to expand your business and future investments. A downfall for this makes your business seem less personal about tending to renters’ requests. When you have a property manager, there is a middleman to take care of these needs.


Having more free time is a major advantage. Many people who manage real estate are always short on time since there are never enough hours in a day. A property management service can also reduce your costs as a property owner. You would be paying someone else one flat fee who is positioned to handle several needs from your tenants, rather than addressing each tenant individually.


One other great advantage of having a property management service is they understand everything there is to know about provincial and federal laws when renting in the surrounding province, city, community or country. Having all this on your plate would be overwhelming and property managers will ensure you are adhering to these laws. Keep in mind their rates may increase should their profits and revenues be affected by meeting the needs of your tenants.
