HOW TO HIRE A BELLEVUE PROPERTY MANAGEMENT COMPANY

Somerset Bellevue

Written by SJA Property Management

SJA offers premier Seattle property management services and serves as the local real estate industry’s most experienced resource for rental property owners.

Whether you’re an individual looking to have someone manage a single home or a corporation in search of help with managing property in Bellevue, then a property management company is the way to go.

While there are several Bellevue property management companies that you can choose from, you can easily pick the right one for your business by doing your research, comparing options, and hopefully interviewing your prospective candidates before you make a hire.

Do Your Research

The first step to making any sort of hire is to research your options. Check online or in the phonebook to see which property management companies specifically service the Bellevue area. You want local because that means they are better equipped to take care of emergencies, and are more likely to have the necessary contacts to make maintenance and other services you might need more affordable. You’ll also want to make a list for each option available in Bellevue, and then make a list of the following features:

For example, you want to know what they offer you for the money, what they offer in general, what they do for you as your property manager, and why they are qualified to do so. Another thing to keep in mind is that some companies specialize in smaller rentals while others specialize in large multiple-unit buildings, and some have the teams to take care of both. Make sure you check before you settle on one company.

Interview Your Options

Once you have narrowed your list of options down to two or three property management companies based on location and qualifications, you can go ahead and set up an interview or call them. Try calling the most promising option first so that, if all goes well, you won’t have to make any other calls. During the interview make sure that you get along with the person you are talking to, and that they treat you as you would prefer to be treated by the client.

During the interview is a great time to ask about various functions and experience such as the number of units they have handled before, how much experience they have, and whether or not they are fully qualified to handle the legal half of managing property.

Make a Decision

Once you have all of the information that you need to make a good decision on which property management company you need, then you can go ahead and make the hire. A good Bellevue property management company should make sure that you don’t have to do anything but look at reports and receive a check, so that your investment is as easy as possible.
