What Does a Columbus Property Management Company Do?

Mitch Deminski - Monday, May 22, 2017

If you’re looking for professional property management in Columbus, but you’re not exactly sure what a property manager does, we can tell you about some of the services that are provided. Basically, we take care of your headaches and we try to reduce your risk as much as we can. Not all headaches can go away, of course. Sometimes we have to call with bad news. Your property may need a new furnace, or your tenant could potentially lose a job, resulting in an early lease termination. We do everything we can to prevent these types of situations.

Finding and Placing a Tenant

Before we even market your home and look for a tenant, we can conduct a rental analysis, so we know how much your home should be earning. Then, we’ll help you find a tenant, advertise the property, qualify the tenant, and gather all the paperwork that’s required when leasing a property. This includes disclosures about lead based paint and issues pertaining to equal housing. These are some of the biggest mistakes that self-managing landlords make.

Emergency and Preventative Maintenance

Your professional property manager should take the time to go over deferred maintenance, and help with any repairs or requirements that are necessary. There should be a maintenance hotline that’s available 24/7 for the tenants. We will also talk about maintaining the home’s systems and how to keep your overall maintenance costs low.

Collecting Rent and Increasing ROI

Rent collection is a major part of what we do, and we keep the process consistent and proactive to ensure you’re getting paid on time. We will evict tenants when we have to, and work on getting you the most money you can for your property.

We do it all. We can even help you find more properties, depending on your goals. We spend time getting to know your investment strategies, whether you are a buy-and-flip type person or you prefer to buy and hold.
