7 Successful Habits of a Property Manager

Are you new to the property management business? Have you been in the property management’s business for several years, but would like more knowledge and insight into how you can become a better property manager? As property managers in Redding who have more than 20 years of experience, we not only understand what it is like to be new to the property management industry, but we have also learned how to grow and develop and become better property managers with each passing year. We would like to offer you 7 successful habits that we feel great property managers have!

  1. Communication – Clear and consistent communication is key to happy tenants and happy owners. Great property managers communicate in clear and consistent ways with tenants and owners in such a way that both the tenants and the owners feel safe and secure.

  2. Experience – The more you manage properties, the more experience you will gain as a property manager and will be able to apply that experience to the properties you will manage in the future. Having hands-on experience will increase your credibility as a property manager as well as your customer base.

  3. References – When landlords are looking into hiring you to manage their properties, they will want to see that people have had great experiences having you as a property manager. With how often people check reviews before they purchase these days, offering testimonials and references to potential clients can increase their chances of hiring you.

  4. Technology – Great property managers use technology to their advantage! Embracing technology and using it to your advantage can help you organize the properties that you are managing, promote yourself as a property manager, communicate your values as a company, build relationships with your audience, and gain a greater customer base.

  5. Tenant screening – As a property manager, landlords are trusting you with the responsibility of finding great tenants that will not damage their properties. Because of this, it is vital that you screen potential tenants so that the odds of filling the rental home or apartment with tenants who will not end up paying the rent on time or will end up damaging the property are lessened.

  6. Interaction with tenants – The way that you interact with your tenants and maintain your relationships with them can make or break you as a property manager. It is important to have open, respectful, and timely communication with your tenants. It is also important that you take care of repair and maintenance issues in a timely fashion.

  7. Consistency – Consistency is the key to being a great property manager. This means being consistent in your communication and in staying on top of the tasks that you are managing for landlords. Landlords want a property manager who is available and consistent in their communication and services. Consistency builds trust and landlords want a property manager that they can trust.
