Property Management Can Be Technology Driven

Property Management Can Be Technology Driven
Time-saving. Convenience. Efficiency. These are three qualities to look for in property management companies if you are a landlord or real estate investor with multiple units. You have a lot of work that you need to do. The property manager is supposed to take the lion share of your burden off the shoulders, allowing you to concentrate on other things. As you interview the various third-party companies, you have to look carefully at what they do on a routine basis.
Old-School Creates New Problems
It is smart to have a list of questions to ask before you interview these companies. The queries should concentrate on the time-saving abilities as well as the convenience and efficiency of services provided. Listen very careful to how property management companies handle basic chores such as rent collecting or screening of prospective tenants. If it appears they handle everything either by direct contact or telephone calls, there are some problems. Rent may not be coming on a timely basis, and emergency repairs are delayed because of traditional means of contacting the right parties. If you have only one or two rental properties, this might not be a problem. Multiunit portfolios, however, require technology for efficient management.
A prospective third-party to whom you will farm out your rental responsibilities has to demonstrate a connection with the Internet. There has to be a possibility of online payment of rent, links to vendors or emergency needs, and also the ability to produce statements in a timely fashion. Technology sees to it that those statements are accurate, and human error is minimal. Important activities such as screening tenants or marketing property are best handled through technology. If a property management company can show it has the means to perform rental comparisons easily, this makes its service that much more convenient to use. AltaVista Properties has the modern tools needed to manage your property proactively.
