Finding out how many other properties or units are under this management companies care is crucial information in your search for the best property management company. You will also need to find out how many employees are managing these units. I rule of thumb is that anything over 40 units per employee is too much; it would be near impossible to put the dedication require into each unit and tenant with so many properties to watch over.
Prevention is the best medicine. A crucial component to managing a property successfully is seeing how they view routine inspections. How often will they be inspecting the property?

Typically, you can arrange to have your property manager contact you for permission if a maintenance issue costs over a certain amount. We recommend making this amount in the low hundreds; you will be up to date immediately on any larger expenses, and will be able to authorize any costs. Another thing to ask your potential property manager is if they add a few on top of maintenance costs; some will add up to 10% on expenses! Avoid any surprises by clearing this up front.
