10 must-ask questions when selecting a property manager

10 must-ask questions when selecting a property manager

By Shane Kempton

If your prospective property manager can't answer these 10 questions, you may need to find someone else to look after your assets. 

1. What is your current rental vacancy rate and how does this compare with the market average?

2. How many properties does your company manage in the local area?

3. How will you market my investment property to prospective tenants?

4. Do you have staff who are specifically employed to show prospective tenants properties you have available or is this left to the property manager?

5. What evidence can you provide that will demonstrate the quality of your services?

6. Who will be responsible for managing my property and what is their experience?

7. What arrangements are made to manage my property when that person is ill or on annual leave?

8. Can you detail all your fees and services?

9. What kind of checks do you undertake when determining the suitability of a tenant?

10. Will you provide me with property inspection reports and, if so, how often will I receive them?
