Do You Need a Property Manager in Portland?

In our previous article, we talked about three questions smart property investors ask themselves when considering hiring a property manager.

  1. What Is Your Proximity to Your Properties?
  2. How Do You Handle Sudden Excitation?
  3. Are You Experienced with Home Maintenance and Repairs?

These three questions address many of the concerns or hesitations that property investors have when they come to us for a complimentary consultation about their property portfolio, but there are certainly other factors at play.

In this article, we’ll be highlighting some additional questions that are important to ponder before hiring a property manager.

How Many Total Properties to You Have for Rent?

One of the most enthusiastic calls we receive from property investors is that they are seeing great success and they want to poise themselves for even greater success by engaging our team of expert property managers.

On the flip side, one of the most distressing calls we receive is from property investors who waited longer than they should have to call us. They wanted to save some money and make a tiny bit of extra profit and so they kept doing everything for just a little too long and now it’s becoming uncomfortable for them to grow any further.

In either scenario, we have a team with years of professional property management experience in the Portland and surrounding markets. We are able to easily help property investors take stock of their portfolio and design a roadmap with them that points towards future growth and success.

Smart property investors know that the more properties they own, the easier it is to spread the cost of maintenance, repairs, and other expenses over all of them. They make more money, faster, by expanding their portfolios. We provide the team and resources to make that expansion successful and pain-free.

Have Your Properties Been On the Leasing Market for Too Long?

There’s no doubt that leasing and selling investment properties is more of an art than a science. We see all too often self-taught property investors who have a really keen sense of the investment world through books and courses they’ve taken but are missing some of the core elements that often go overlooked in those educational programs.

In property management, experience is everything and working with someone who has already “been there, done that” can be a thrilling way to accelerate your property portfolio and learning curve.

Do you have properties that are still vacant and starting to make you uncomfortable? Let someone on our team assess your current leasing strategy on a complimentary call.

If you’re looking for better ways to assess the market lease value of your property, attract higher quality tenants, make sure you’re collecting all of the proper legal paperwork, and just wanting to learn or turn over some of your responsibilities to a seasoned pro—a good property manager in Portland can help.

Are You An Accountant and Good With Paperwork?

We meet so many creative property investors who have an absolute loathing for paperwork. They are smart, savvy investors, but their skillset is being able to find, negotiate, and purchase properties. They often find that all of the minutiae and paperwork that comes along with property investment and leasing prevents them from actually enjoying the property investment process.

That’s where a great property manager in Portland can step in and take the reigns, allowing you to do what you’re best at—finding great properties. There are so many advantages to having a sharp eye looking over your paperwork and accounting books. We’d love to share more about how we approach property management accounting, payroll, and more.
