What to Know Before Hiring an Austin, Texas Rental Property Manager

Should I hire an Austin, Texas property manager for my rental property?


While there are plenty of real estate investors that truly enjoy managing their property and their tenants on their own, it may simply not be for everyone. And that’s okay! Managing day-to-day maintenance requests or tenant paperwork or keeping up-to-date on property codes, can often be quite taxing on landlords.

If you want more time to spend with your family or work on personal projects and are ready to partner with a professional Austin Property Manager, this video is for you. 1836PM founder, Matt Leschber, will go into some detail about what an investor or landlord needs to know before hiring an Austin Property Manager.

But first, if you’re considering hiring someone to manage your property in Austin, Texas, be sure that they are licensed as a real estate agent, supervised by a licensed broker, and authorized to conduct property management.

They must also know more than just how to put out a “For Rent” sign and pick up a rent check. More importantly, if they say yes to everything you ask them to do, and you are not a tier-one landlord, you may be getting sold services that can’t be fulfilled. Strong, experienced property managers do business a certain way and have processes and procedures in writing. It’s the only way to deliver service, on time and exceed expectations.

If someone tells you everything you want to hear and doesn’t share with you their experiences, they may not have any experience or the strength to do the right thing. Strong leaders make great managers.
