Agent vs. Property Manager: Who do You Want for Your Palm Beach Rental Manager?

Todd Breen - Tuesday, June 5, 2012
This video features Boynton Beach Property Managers Todd and Natasha discussing the difference between using a real estate agent vs. a property manager to take care of leasing and managing rental homes.    

Agent vs. Property Manager

A real estate agent specializes in selling homes, but does this necessarily qualify her/him as a suitable candidate for knowing how to screen a tenant?  Can an agent give experienced advice regarding accepting a quality tenant? Managing a property involves a diverse set of responsibilities such as finding the right tenant, collecting rent, helping with repairs and maintenance, being aware of the current market trends and resolving all issues related to the property. Sure an agent can list your home for rent, take out ads in the local paper or on websites, and even get a tenant in the home.  If something needs repair, the agent could easily do a Google search or ask friends for a recommended vendor to fix the problem.  Seems simple enough, right? However, what happens when your tenant stop paying rent?  What if you can’t oversee the repairs to the property, and the work done is not to your liking?

This is what you should do: Hire a property manager.

Realtor or Property Manager?A property manager is discerning and selective when finding and screening tenants. Using a vast network of trustworthy vendors to make repairs the right way, a property manager also collects rent, deals with tenants, and resolves any issues that occur. You have the advantage of professionals that really know how to make your investment perform. Boynton Beach Property Manager Natasha thoroughly screens tenants at the beginning to ensure that later dealings are better. On an average, only 60% of potential tenants are given a green signal to get a rental home from her.
