Essential Questions to Ask Your Property Management Company

Buying property is an exciting venture, but it can come with stress and anxiety if you go it alone. Property Management Toronto is here to solve property-related problems before they arise, so receiving passive monthly income doesn’t have to be a drag.

How do professional property managers make being a landlord effortless? Good question! To answer it, let’s look at the answers to a few related questions.

Do Landlords Who Hire Property Managers Need Special Home Repair Skills?

One of the best things about obtaining professional landlord management services is that it relieves landlords of the need to be handy around their homes. If something should break, tenants can call to let us know, and we’ll delve into our long list of contacts with vetted contractors. We’ll present owners with three choices at different price brackets, and they can select the option that suits them best.

Landlords don’t even need to do the legwork Googling a contractor they hope is excellent. We have developed positive relations over the years with contractors for every type of repair.

Sit back knowing your home will remain in excellent shape without fearing you’ll have to watch a YouTube video to learn how to keep it that way. Plus, you can be assured that our handypersons are bonded, insured, reliable, and will always be respectful towards tenants when entering their homes.

We never outsource this kind of work — we always know the people we dispatch to your property.

Do Property Managers Tend to Emergencies in Off-Hours?

One of the common challenges landlords face is potentially sacrificing their free time to tend to an urgent situation at their property. What happens if you’re on vacation or at your child’s piano recital and there’s a burst pipe in the basement?

Now, you can hire a property manager and pre-emptively take control of that situation before it arises. Your free time will remain free. We’ll be on call 24/7/365.

How Do Professional Property Managers Choose Tenants?

Finding a reliable, mature tenant who pays their rent on time and respects the property is one of the surest ways to enjoy peace of mind as a landlord. Knowing there’s a great long-term tenant under your roof makes it much easier to sleep at night.

If you hire us for rental management in Toronto or the GTA, we’ll secure an excellent tenant by using our four-step process:

  • Employment letter: We’ll obtain an employment letter from every prospective tenant, confirming they work where they say they do and can pay rent comfortably.
  • Credit check: Seeing how a prospective tenant handles other financial obligations offers an important window into how they’ll treat rent.
  • Reference check: Hearing character references from friends, family, and previous landlords provides insights that financial records don’t.
  • Tenant application: We bring tenant applications to you, so you can approve the one you like best. You don’t need to provide a reason for approving or rejecting an application.

Picking a renter from the pile can be emotionally driven, and these biases may impair people’s decision-making abilities. We proudly offer clients our experienced, impartial perspective developed after years of working in Toronto real estate.

A crucial decision like this shouldn’t be made without the benefit of wisdom learned over the years and a dependable, time-tested, multi-step process.

Do You Offer Clients Any Free Services?
