Electing to use a property management company to oversee a homeowner's association or rental properties can truly help you rest well by knowing that your property is in good hands. Choosing the right  property manager is a huge decision that can positively impact your investments.  A professional property manager is well worth the pay, while a poor one will have you regretting ever investing in rental property. There are two very important things you should  consider when selecting a property management company. 

Qualifications

Real estate investments are likely a big part of your financial portfolio. It's important to find someone who's highly qualified to manage such an important investment. You wouldn't want a doctor who wasn't licensed to see you when you're sick or an unlicensed attorney to represent you in a court of law. Look for important qualifications with property management professionals too. Without education and knowledge in the field, a property manager cannot help you grow your investment or even manage it in its current state. Without good credentials, you must also consider if the property management company you are dealing with is ethical or up to date in the knowledge of the real estate field. Ask about the certifications and licenses of the property management team that you are considering. 

Online Communication and Reporting Services

In today's fast-paced, technology-based world, you want to make sure that the property management company you select is using an efficient, effective online management tool that is simple to use. The system should have multiple purposes such as communication; payment collection; and requesting support. A homeowner's association, for example, could use the system to communicate messages or information with members, collect fees or dues, and provide a "self-service" for residents.
