Building a Property Management Team

business, people, cooperation and team work concept - close up of creative team sitting at table and holding hands on top of each other in office

There are no loan wolf successful people. One of my favorite quotes from John Maxwell is his response to people who say they are “self made”. He explains how sorry he is because if they are self made then they haven’t accomplished a whole lot and explains that great things are done with a team. Property management is no different.

Who is on our property management team?

1.  An eviction attorney – Yes, no matter how much we underwrite applications and look for the right tenant, situations do change and some tenants go from being great to being very poor tenants in need of eviction. Because the landlord-tenant laws are very specific, it is always best to turn it over to a legal professional to handle this process.

2. Third party application underwriter – We believe it is best to remove us from the equation when underwriting an application. We solicit the help of a company who does nothing but underwrite all of our applications according to a criteria we determine. That way, we aren’t subject to the whims and stories from tenants that some landlords fall so hard for.

3. Property management software provider – We use a number of different software applications to manage our properties. The most important is the management accounting software we use that is industry specific to single family rental homes. Our provider is a team member, because we are constantly calling them up and asking clarifying questions about how to handle certain situations in the software.

Building the right property management team will help you be much more successful as you navigate the waters of managing single family rental homes.

If you have specific questions about any of our providers, I hope you will reach out to us and ask us those questions. We’d love to help.
