Tips for Selecting a Property Manager
How do you balance the stress of renting out a property with the monetary benefits associated with property ownership? Seattle property management may be the answer. If you’re interested in having someone else manage your Seattle rental housing, here are a few tips to keep in mind when selecting a property manager.
- Make Sure You Understand the Fees
If a property manager tries to get you to sign a contract before you fully understand the monthly fees, run the other way. The best property management companies will always make sure the management fees are clearly disclosed before any contract is agreed upon.
- Ask About the Applicant Screening Process
The best property managers screen applicants and perform background checks to help protect your investment. Screening applicants can also lengthen periods of residency so you don’t have to worry about finding new residents for your property as frequently.
- Look for Managers That Collect Rent
Collecting rent is one of the most stressful aspects of owning a rental property. The best property managers will relieve this burden from your shoulders by offering rent collection services.

Hiring a property management company is a good investment, especially if you don’t have the time and resources to manage the property on your own.
