  • Should I use a property management company for my rental?

    If you see the value in having good, long-term tenants in your rental property then hiring a property management company to provide tenant placement is a good choice. Having good tenants is especially important if you intend on managing your rental property on your own (without the help of full property management services).

    Property management companies, like AG Property Services, offer various management options, depending on your needs. If you would like your investment to be completely passive, full-service property management is what you need. If you don’t mind handling the challenges of being a landlord, then tenant placement will make your life easier by providing you with a reliable and trustworthy tenant.

  • When was the last time you changed your mind about something important?

    The cost of dealing with bad tenants is often much greater than the cost of hiring a property management company to provide tenant placement. Bad tenants may cause damage, fail to pay rent, or cause costly legal issues. As a result, many landlords find that tenant placement is worth the cost. This is especially true for landlords who have had a bad experience with tenants in the past or don’t know how to properly screen potential candidates.

    Tenant placement is about more than just reducing your stress. Tenant placement will help you find a reliable and long-term tenant that you can trust in your rental property.

  • What is the difference between property management vs tenant placement?

    The difference between property management vs tenant placement is in the services provided.

    Complete property management involves full management of a rental property. In this case, everything from finding and signing a tenant, to rent collection and evictions is dealt with by the property management company.

    On the other hand, tenant placement is used by landlords who intend to manage their own property in the long term but require help finding a reliable and trustworthy tenant. A tenant placement company will advertise your property, screen potential candidates, and offer tenant recommendations. Once an ideal tenant is found, the company will process all the necessary documentation. Upon completion, all documents are handed over to the property owner for use in the future.

  • What is tenant placement?

    Tenant placement is the process of finding and leasing a rental property to the best possible candidate. Finding the right tenant involves several steps, including advertising, arranging showings, and screening potential candidates. Once an ideal candidate is found, a tenant placement company will negotiate the lease, and complete the lease agreement, along with all other necessary documentation.

    The most important step in finding a great tenant is the vetting process. Tenant placement companies know the right questions to ask to ensure a good tenant. Therefore, tenant placement is a great option if you would prefer to manage your rental property on your own but are unsure of how to find a long-term, reliable tenant.

  • Do I need a property manager for my rental property?

    Managing a rental property can be time-consuming. From finding the right tenants to collecting rent, property management is a full-time job. If you enjoy making money from renting out your property but don’t like the headaches that come with being a landlord, then hiring a property management company is a great option!

    Not only will a property manager take care of all the maintenance, repairs and other hassles, they will also find you the best possible tenants. Working with a property management company, you will make more money in the long run - by doing less! Plus, you’ll escape the stress of handling everything on your own.

  • What does full-service property management mean?

    Full-service property management means that every aspect of renting out your property will be taken care of by the management company. At AG Property Services, our full-service property management includes: finding the perfect tenant for your property through advertising and a thorough screening process, moving the tenant in, collecting rent, taking care of maintenance and repairs, and managing the tenant throughout their lease.

    With our full-service property management, AG Property Services will only come to you with updates on your property and for approval on major decisions. This makes renting out your property easy and stress-free. So, you can sit back and relax, while reaping the rewards of being a landlord.

  • What is included in property management services?

    Property management services include everything you’ll need for easy rental management. Depending on your situation, you may require full-service property management or tenant placement only. Each option offers varying services to help make your endeavour as a landlord simple and stress-free.

    If you own several properties, do not live in the same city in which your rental property is located, or don’t want to deal with the hassles of being a landlord, full-service management may be the best option for you. On the other hand, if you only require assistance with finding good tenants, and don’t mind managing the other aspects of your property on your own, then tenant placement may be all that you need.

  • What does a property management company do?

    A property management company works with owners and tenants. They manage every aspect of your rental property, including marketing, finding and placing tenants, collecting rent on your behalf, dealing with maintenance and repairs, and managing tenants throughout their rental term. If any problems arise with your rental property, a property management company will be there to resolve the issue. This includes repairs and maintenance of the property.

    The goal of a property management company like AG Property Services is to provide you with peace of mind. With an experienced management team on your side, you can rest assured your investment is being well taken care of and that you’re maximizing your ROI.
