Finding competent property managers is important for building a portfolio and maximising cash flow. Here are some key considerations for finding a good property manager.
When selecting a property manager, you are employing someone to look after a significant investment for you. To do that successfully they must have your best interest at heart. Always engage people who are working on your team –not for the tenant or other parties.
Seek out recommendations for property managers in the marketplace and do your homework to determine how they do their job before committing. Ensure any possible candidates are in the market place doing good things, renting out properly and achieving the best results for their clients.

Always ask the questions to ensure you have the best team on your side. Ask property managers their thoughts and go with those that you believe suit your situation to maximise potential.
