If you are new to hiring a property management company, you might be unsure as to what to expect when they come to your property. It is clearly an important aspect of running a business, to make sure that the building you are using is safe and secure! Here are our main things to expect when hiring a property management company:
- Security: all staff from the company should be able to product a form of ID to show that they are a part of the company. Seems obvious, but just think of how many strangers could easily wander around your building unchecked!
- Trustworthy: Expect all the management staff to be honest and trustworthy. They should definitely seem like good people, after all, you are trusting them to take care of you!
- Offer a range of services: your company should be able to undertake as many of the tasks as you require. If you have outside space, they should offer to look after it, cut any grass etc. They should definitely maintain bathrooms and washrooms and should provide security service for nighttime and the front desk.
- Connections. Your company should be able to list off a number of other companies they work with to provide services. We can’t expect one company to be experts in all areas, thus you’d expect them to have a few friends ready and available to help out when things get tough!
Take this advice and we guarantee you’ll be on your way to finding a brilliant property management company!
