Understanding Property Management Fees and Services: What to Look for in the Triad

Source; Tri Property Pros, June 24, 2024

When it comes to property management, particularly in the Triad region, there's a growing trend of new management companies offering competitive rates, sometimes as low as 8%. While these low fees might seem appealing, it's crucial to remember that the percentage alone doesn't tell the whole story. In this blog, we'll explore why it's essential to look beyond the percentage and ensure you're receiving comprehensive services that meet your needs. We'll also discuss recent regulatory changes affecting short-stay properties and how TRI Property Pros can help navigate these challenges.

The Real Cost of Property Management

At first glance, a management fee of 8% might seem like a great deal. However, it's important to delve deeper and understand what services are included in that fee. Some companies might offer a low percentage but provide minimal services, leading to additional costs down the line. Key services to consider include:

  • Tenant Screening and Placement: Ensuring high-quality tenants is crucial for maintaining your property and securing steady rental income.

  • Maintenance and Repairs: Regular upkeep and prompt repairs prevent minor issues from becoming major, costly problems.

  • Rent Collection and Financial Reporting: Efficient rent collection and transparent financial reporting are essential for keeping your investment profitable.

  • Legal Compliance: Staying compliant with local laws and regulations can save you from fines and legal issues.

When evaluating property management companies, ask for a detailed list of services included in their fee. This way, you can make an informed comparison and choose a company that offers the best value for your money.

New Regulations for Short-Stay Properties

In the Triad region, short-stay properties are subject to new regulatory requirements. Property owners must now obtain a zoning permit, and either the property management company or the owner must be located within a certain perimeter of the property address. These changes are designed to ensure better oversight and management of short-stay rentals.

Navigating these new regulations can be challenging, especially for those unfamiliar with the legal landscape. A knowledgeable property management company can assist with:

  • Zoning Permit Acquisition: Understanding the requirements and helping you obtain the necessary permits.

  • Local Representation: Ensuring compliance by having a local presence, which is particularly important for out-of-town owners.
