Hiring a property management company to assist with your Scottsdale, Arizona rental can be one of the best decisions you make. At Shield Property Management, we’re committed to freeing up your precious time while boosting the success of your rental.

As you interview and meet with potential property management companies, asking a few key questions can help you make a confident choice.

What Are Your Pricing Options?

Budget is a common concern when hiring a property management firm, so be sure you fully understand the types of fees you’ll be paying. Does the company charge a flat monthly rate? Do they offer tiered pricing plans based on your services needed? Also, make sure you won’t be charged fees if your property sits empty for any amount of time. Your property manager should have incentive to fill your rental, after all.

How Will You Collect Rent?

The days of paying rent via check are long gone, and today’s tenants generally prefer the convenience of being able to pay their rent online or via their smartphones. Make sure your property management company has the technology today’s tenants expect for convenient rental payment. Ideally, they should offer enrollment in automatic rental payment as well.

How Will You Market My Property?

Finally, be sure your property management company has extensive experience in aggressively marketing rentals. A property manager worth your time and money will market to multiple channels (including the Internet) to minimize the amount of time it sits vacant.

These are just a few of the most important questions to ask when selecting a property management company. For more information on Shield Property Management’s three tiers of services, contact our team today—we look forward to working with you!
