Being a landlord comes with an ever-growing list of responsibilities. As a property owner, you may not want to deal with the hassles that come with overseeing property and tenant issues. That’s where a good property management company comes in. Contracting the right company could help alleviate all the stress involved, especially when it comes to property maintenance Toronto services.
How do property management companies help landlords? Let’s start with the simple management and administration of your properties. Investment properties can certainly help diversify your assets and provide you with ongoing monthly income. However, administering all the financial responsibilities that come with owning property is one major area where property maintenance services can help. From collecting rent and/or condo fees to ensuring there’s a built-up fund for ongoing repairs is a critical aspect involved in the financial management of your properties. A large-occupancy building can generate a substantial amount of monthly revenue that can be easily administered by an experienced property maintenance company. From taxation to utilities to insurance and more, you need an ally with exceptional organizational capabilities to keep your operation running smoothly.
Tenant acquisition is a major responsibility of your property maintenance company. In a low-vacancy/high-demand market like the Greater Toronto area, there will be a flood of wanna-be tenants for any property listed on the market. Finding a qualified tenant and providing lease out services is critical to ensuring your building continues to generate maximum revenue with minimum interruption. Evicting bad tenants is a nightmare; it’s important to have a company that can properly identify potential problem tenants through the interview and credit application process. Property owners want trouble-free tenants who pay on time, adhere to the rules of the building and who respect the building and fellow tenants. This makes it easier to ensure full occupancy when vacancies do come up. Property maintenance Toronto companies like Ashbridges Property Management employ professionals who know all the nuances of the Residential Tenancies Act, and they can deal with tenants who attempt to manipulate the rules governing landlords.
Property maintenance companies often provide a complete menu of services to landlords, including shopping for new rental properties, overseeing repairs and maintenance, negotiating service contracts with contractors, tenant services, grounds keeping and other aspects of the day-to-day operation of a rental property. Marketing your property is also a skill required to secure tenants and maintain your monthly income. During a cool market or a time when unique challenges like a pandemic hit, the company overseeing your property maintenance services will have to have exceptional marketing capabilities to communicate your messages and find new occupants. Utilizing the best real estate platforms to make your property stand out on any rental listing is critical.
