So How Much Does a Property Manager Cost? – March 2015
by Tracey Sparrow
The most common question we are asked is how much will it cost?
Property Management fees will vary depending upon the business engaged, however with Irelands Property Management you can be rest assured that you’ll be receiving the highest value possible when you deal with us.
Your desire to engage with a property manager will always be due to one of two motivations; (1) do you have the time to manage a property or properties (and what is the opportunity cost associated with actually managing the property)? and (2) do you have the necessary skill set and knowledge to physically manage a property/properties?
The cost of not using a Property Manager is therefore a time and opportunity cost, and the costs associated with getting it wrong.
For more information on why to work with an Ireland’s Property Manager refer to How to Choose a Property Management Company – an earlier article that highlights the benefits of utilising the knowledge and expertise of an experienced Property Manager.
“There are a number of benefits that come with working alongside a Property Manager. If you are not confident with how to oversee a rental property, including the laws surrounding the industry, a Property Manager will have the necessary experience and knowledge to be able to follow the correct procedures and act within the boundaries of the law in regards to tenants, tax and other property matters.
You will be able to hand over a majority of the time-consuming responsibilities as owner and landlord e.g. advertising, tenant screening, credit/reference checking, property open homes, weekly rent payment administration and property inspections, to name a few. The overall control of the property remains with you and the most important decision – the final say on who will live in your property based on the final applications provided by your Property Manager.”
