Owning a residential property can be a great investment. Especially, if you are renting out your property on a monthly basis and thus earning a comfortable monthly income for yourself.
Just because you own property doesn't necessarily mean you want to be a landlord and that's where you step into becoming a residential property management company.
It may not even be a question of whether you want to participate in the day-to-day life of a residential property or not, but you may live abroad and therefore have no choice but to seek assistance in managing your property.

Here are some good things to know before giving anything to your hard-earned business:-
• How Much Will Be Involved: Before deciding whether to give money to the residential real estate management company you are considering, make sure they cover everything you intend to do. This can include, but is not limited to, negotiating leases, signing leases, ensuring general maintenance of property, accepting leases, handling tenant issues, and essentially helping them escape.
• How you will be charged: some residential property management companies will charge a fixed monthly fee, while others will charge you a percentage of the rent. You should be aware of this in advance because one option will give you savings over another.
• Do you need a contract? Another question that needs to be asked is the length of the contract. Many residential property management companies require you to sign an annual contract. This may be a good idea unless you feel unhappy with their service.
