The Disadvantages of Managing Your Own Property

Did you strike gold with a recent property investment or are you planning on purchasing a property soon? If you did, you may have found yourself at a crossroads between managing the property on your own vs. hiring a property manager. Much of this decision will come down to how much time you have.

First, consider what property management entails:

  • Rental agreements (including gathering monthly rent/deposits)
  • 24/7 Maintenance and repair needs
  • Utilities
  • Zone regulations
  • HOA fees
  • Marketing
  • Tenant acquisition
  • Tenant and vendor communications
  • Eviction enforcement
  • Move-in/move-out inspections and damage assessments

While self-management can save you money, property management will save you time and effort, ensuring sure things are resolved efficiently and professionally. Without a property management company, you become the point person for the day-to-day needs of your property. If you have never attempted self-management before, you may be surprised by the number of issues that will come your way daily.

Simplify your life by engaging the expertise of a property management company to protect your Fayetteville or Raleigh-area investment. Call Block & Associates Realty today at 919-459-6300 to get started.
