Finding the Right Property Management Company in Boise

Property management Boise Selecting the right property management company can be challenging. Selecting the right property manager for your Boise rental will make a huge difference in keeping your residential property rented and preserved. For this reason, it pays to be highly selective when choosing the right company. All property management companies claim to do an excellent job of screening tenants, collecting rent, maintaining your property and keeping it attractive. So how do you make a smart choice?

Hire a Local Property Manager

If you have a rental in the Boise area, you will want your residential property manager to know the local market and be close enough to your property to be available.

Acquire Three References

A reputable property manager will be able to provide you with current or recent clients. When contacting the references you’ll want to ask about their level of satisfaction. Ask to see tenant satisfaction surveys or even to speak to a couple of current tenants. Satisfied tenants are typically signs of an honest and professionally operated property management company. Discuss strengths and weaknesses and inquire about the success of their properties while managed by the property manager. You’re most likely to get honest feedback by ensuring confidentiality.


Look for a Property Manager who has Managed Residential Properties Similar to Yours

While some may be really good at managing single-family homes, others may focus on apartment buildings. Inquire as to what types of residential properties they are most comfortable with.

 Watch for excellent customer service

A manager who communicates well with you as the owner is likely to communicate well with your tenants. If your phone call does not get returned within 24-48 hours, this is probably not the property manager for you. You want someone who responds right away, and who treats applicants, tenants and vendors with respect.

Make sure you understand the fees involved

The fees in large cities such are often higher than those in smaller communities. Rooftop Real Estate does not believe in “nickel and diming” investors and provides clear and upfront pricing.
