5 Signs You Need a New Property Management Strategy

When you invest in a rental property in Colorado, you receive steady passive income as well as enjoy home appreciation. But trying to manage a rental property on your own is often stressful. Sometimes you fix up a property so well that tenants don’t want to leave even when you don’t want to renew a lease. By hiring a good property management company, you minimize property damage, stress and boost profits and tax benefits. According to a piece by thebalance.com, there are several signs that indicate the need for a new property management strategy, especially for DIY landlords ill-equipped to handle rough tenants.

You like to travel or live out of the area

If you don’t live close to your Colorado rental property or travel extensively for work, it’s a sign indicating you need a good property manager to oversee the maintenance and upkeep. Hiring a property manager frees up your time. Some people think they can manage a rental home until an unexpected family illness or accident takes up their attention and time.

You want to increase your portfolio

If you want to buy another rental home or condo, it’s another sign that you need a property manager. Most people can’t juggle numerous tenants. A property manager shows your rental home to potential tenants, screens people, collects rent and enforces the lease. Real estate experts point out that it’s still a good time to own rental properties in popular areas such as Colorado.

You know your strengths and weaknesses

If you know your personal strong and weak points, recognize that not everyone is good at playing the “tough guy.” Some people like to please others, which is fine. But when it comes to owning a rental property, it’s best to stay organized and enforce the lease. Even if you are handy, a full-property management company saves you time.

You don’t have the time

When it comes to the rental property business, it’s a full-time job. If you feel overwhelmed with your business or career, consider whether a property manager is the best fit for your work situation. You still receive tax benefits as long as you actively participate by hiring a property manager.

You don’t have the right personality

Some people feel stressed when people damage their property or start arguments. A property manager handles disputes for you. If a tenant has a problem with a neighbor or wants something fixed, it’s quickly resolved in a professional manner. If you don’t like interacting with people, can’t handle conflicts well or feel a lot of stress, lean on a property management company.

Hire a Trustworthy Property Management Company and Relax

As an investor you want a worry free return of investment on your money.  Today, rates are making this nearly impossible through the banking system. However, investing in rental property has many advantages in this new economy, but the burden of personally managing your property assets is not one of them.

A most significant aspect of property management and return on investments is the filling of vacancies. If this is not handled correctly, efficiently and wisely it will cost the owner on revenue, time, and expenses. The property management of filling vacancies involves many steps that are best handled by an experienced team. Below are some of these steps:

  • Deciding on the rent amount. This must match or reflect the existing offers in the neighborhood.
  • Advertising the property for rent in all forms of media: social, exclusive rental websites, print, referral networks and the use of highly trained leasing professionals. 
  • Showing the unit. This takes time and coordination.  It is best to have a mechanism which eliminates the obviously unqualified potential tenant.  A good property management team will do this. 
  • Screening the potential tenant prudently.  This is to demonstrate that a potential tenant is financially stable and able to afford your rent. 
  • Coordination of the lease signing and all agreements. The documented lease is the protection device for both the owner and the tenant.  As such it is a very important document.

Finally the most important topic Hire a Trustworthy Property Management Company and Relax. That is where Housing Helpers come in.  We help you with property management whether you live nearby or are an out-of-state property owner, we know your needs and have a proven track-record.  We are willing to work for your trust by delivering outstanding service.  And remember there are NO up-front cost. You only pay for results.

5 Ways Property Management Gets You More Bang for Your Buck

The decision to hire a property management company is not one that many home owners take lightly. After all, putting someone else in the middle means that you get a smaller slice of the pie.

Or does it it?

Let’s look at some ways in which using a property management company actually helps get as much money into your pocket as possible – which, let’s face it, is exactly where it belongs.

Time is Money – Especially Your Time

When you sit down to think about what managing a property entails, lay out a salary for yourself. Think about what you’ll be doing, and what your renters will be expecting of you. If you were ever a renter, try and go back to that time – what did you expect of your landlords? Match those expectations to yourself, and try to put a dollar number to it. Do you have the hours every month, or week, to match that salary? Do you have the ability to afford paying yourself that, while still breaking even on this?

With a property management company working for you, there’s no math to figure in trying to decide if your time is going to be made worth while… because you’ve already made the decision that your time is more valuable than anything else.

DIY Can be Costlier Than You Think

Even assuming that you’re a tried-and-true handyman who owns all your own tools and knows their way around a circular saw, doing your own repairs gets expensive… fast. Even something as simple as a leaky faucet can potentially lead to any number of great home renovation problems. Not to mention to the repairs that are fairly cut and dry – there’s still all the components of evaluating the problem, driving to the hardware store, purchasing the parts, returning to the property (all within a time frame that works for both you and your tenant), hopefully fixing the problem on the first go, and leaving all without having any second problems arise, or hearing, “Well while you’re hear…” from your renter.

A Property Manager Won’t Get Sick of the Business

People become landlords for a variety of reasons. They buy a second home, but have trouble selling the first and so it becomes a rental. Or perhaps they get curious about what a second income might look like, so they buy another home and rent it out. How long do you think it will be before you’re throwing your hands up and screaming, running stark mad into the woods? Managing properties is not for everyone – but you can be guaranteed that a Property Management company is vested in having this be something they will work hard at every day.

While you may wake up one morning and not want to deal with your tenants, that will never happen with a Property Manager. You may start eyeballing your renter’s agreements, scheming ways that you could evict them early because you want out – again, not something a property management company would ever do. The honeymoon may eventually end for you – but for a property manager, this relationship is about the long haul.

The Math (Likely) Doesn’t Add Up

Let’s look at some easy numbers. Consider the idea that by managing your own property, you save an estimated $200 a month. Let’s further assume that you spend around 10 hours every month (or two per week) handling those properties – everything from running around town to check on houses, calling up handymen (or doing it yourself), stops by the bank or notary. Every bit of the business. What you’ve found yourself with is a job that pays you $20 an hour.

Instead, you could pass on that “saved” $200 a month, and focus instead on the part of property management that actually makes money – acquiring more properties, planning renovations to boost the rent, devising income plans. In the long run, letting a Property Manager do the “busy work” for you means that you get to do all the fun stuff yourself.

One Legal Bout Can Ruin All Your Fun

It’s easy to have an, “Oh, but it’ll probably never happen to me,” opinion about having to drag a tenant to court. You can just cross your fingers and hope that you only ever have great renters, or that even if you do have a few “difficult” ones, they’re never bad enough to need the court involved. The truth is, even within the world of small claims court, fees rack up to staggering heights. The most well-researched landlord is likely not as knowledgeable about tenant rights and property law as someone who works in the field, meaning you can trust yourself to be in the hands of someone who is working to keep you – and your renters – out of court.

Colorado Property Management Fall Maintenance Tips

Fall Tips From a Colorado Property Manager

Fall in Colorado is beautiful, sunny clear days and cool nights.  But Colorado weather can sneak up on us.  As the saying goes “if you don’t like the weather in Colorado just wait five minutes!”  Over the years as a property manager I’ve developed a routine for maintaining my properties.  Here are a few tips to share from my October schedule of Colorado property management maintenance.

Service HVAC units

With winter fast approaching, fall is a great time to have a professional HVAC service done on your heating systems.   Service should include at minimum: changing the furnace filters, cleaning and testing the furnace, changing out humidifier pads ( in a central humidifier system) and changing the settings from “summer” to “winter”.   We also like to stock extra air-filter nearby in a utility closet at the property so that filters can be easily changed throughout the winter season.

Winterize The Sprinkler System

It’s still eighty degrees on the thermometer and the sun is shining bright but don’t let that fool you.   Snow will be falling soon and so will the temperatures.    I remember more than a few Halloweens’ where the kiddos were trick-or-treating in the snow and freezing temps.  Now is a good time to have your irrigation system winterized including: blowing out the lines with an air compressor, draining the back-flow device, shutting off the main water line to the sprinkler system- draining any excess water from  the line, and I like to cover the back flow device outside. You can do this with a couple of hefty garbage bags and some duct tape or purchase a cover at Home Depot.

Aerate and Fertilize The Lawn

Yep. Often overlooked, fall fertilizer and aeration service can make the difference in having a lush green lawn come spring time.   Lawns go dormant in Colorado in the winter time.  However they aren’t dead!  They still need nutrients to survive the long harsh winter weather.  Aerating gives the fertilizer a path down to the deep roots- the part of the turf that will feed the lawn nutrients all winter long as the surface stays dormant.

Schedule Snow Removal Service

If you have a property in Colorado chances are you will have to deal with snow removal.  Be aware of your local City ordinances for snow removal and know the rules.  For example in Boulder Colorado where we are located, the City requires that you remove snow and ice from public walkways in front of your property within 24 hours of the snow fall.   If you have a snow removal contractor, now is the time to get that new contract signed and agree upon the terms for service.  Most contractors will initiate service after 2 inches of snowfall and follow up again after subsequent 2 to 4 inches of snowfall.

TIP!  October is the time to stock up on ice melt and snow removal supplies- your local hardware store or Home Depot tend to run out of supplies as folks rush to the store when the first snow fall hits.

Cover Patio Furniture and BBQ Grills

Whether you invest in custom fit covers or use my method (tarps with bungee cords) , covering your outdoor assets will add years to their life.   Keep the snow and ice off and help prevent rusting, fading, and weather damage.   Patio cushions and fabric umbrellas should be stored away in a protected area.  Believe it or not, the Colorado winter sun does more damage to patio furniture than anything else so if you can keep the sun off you will be ahead of the game.

We enjoy Colorado in the fall, it’s my favorite time of year.  But as a property manager I feel a lot better knowing that my properties are ready for winter.   If you need help renting your property please give us a call and we’ll go to work to help make your days worry free.  303-545-6000

Boulder Rental property owners invited to public forum

Boulder area rental property owners, property managers, and management companies are invited to discuss how best to achieve “Design Excellence” in Boulder

Boulder community members are invited to attend a “Design Excellence” public forum from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 10, in the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (BMoCA) at 1750 13th St. The City of Boulder’s Design Excellence Initiative is intended to support a broad community discussion about what is and is not working with current design policies for buildings and the public realm, as well as evaluate built projects to determine whether desired outcomes are being achieved.

Urban planner Victor Dover, cofounder of Dover, Kohl & Partners and coauthor of Street Design: The Secret of Great Cities and Towns, will lead the discussion and present relevant best practices for design and development strategies that help connect neighborhoods, strengthen commercial districts, expand travel options, enhance community character, and improve quality of life.

The discussion and presentation will be framed by observations of recent developments in Boulder, some recently completed and some still under construction, which resulted from key planning policy decisions made by the city during the last 10 to 15 years. The focus of the conversation will be on design-related issues and best practices from other communities that are relevant to the Boulder context.

The Boulder Design Advisory Board and the Planning Board are scheduled to have a joint session with Victor Dover from 5 to 8 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 8, in the Twenty Ninth Street Community Room at 1750 29th St., Suite 1062. Mr. Dover will also host a similar discussion at the City Council study session on Tuesday, Dec. 9, at 6 p.m. in Council Chambers at the Municipal Building, 1777 Broadway.

During the next several months, the Design Excellence Initiative will continue the community discussion about design and development issues. The ultimate goal of the initiative is to develop recommended strategies to address community concerns related to development outcomes, including (but not limited to) potential changes to codes, incentives, development review processes, design guidelines, and/or review criteria.

The recommendations of the Design Excellence Initiative will help inform the city’s coordinated planning efforts, including the Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan 2015 Update, Civic Area Implementation, Access Management and Parking Strategy, Envision East Arapahoe, North Boulder Subcommunity Plan Update, and Transportation Master Plan Implementation.

Visit www.BoulderDesignExcellence.com for more information and to sign up for email updates.  The opinions of Boulder rental property owners and Boulder property management companies is valuable insight that we hope is included in the discussion, please attend if you can.

6 Emerging Trends in Property Management

It’s no secret that technology has changed the property management industry for renters and Landlords alike.   But which trends are shaping the future of property management right now?

Mobile Leasing Tools

According to an article in Apartment Management Magazine, “ 87% of electronic device sales will be tablets and smartphones” ….which means property managers will need to accommodate mobile prospects and applicants with mobile online leasing tools.  If you’re not targeting mobile users you’re missing out on a huge segment of the renter demographic.

Social Media

One of the latest and most effective tools for potential tenants and property managers to meet is on social media outlets. This has become one of the most effective ways for each of them to learn what type of living rental space is offered and what’s needed. The apartment marketing industry is now utilizing social media more than ever before to connect with prospective renters.

Ratings and Reviews

An online rating can carry a lot of weight with a many potential tenants. Bad reviews tend to get too much attention.  Property management companies need to develop a program to get satisfied renters to post positive reviews and give good ratings. These types of programs are a worthy investment that can provide a good return.

Aesthetics

Renters are increasingly looking for living spaces that are visually appealing.  Gone are the days of cookie cutter apartments with beige carpet and white walls.  Renters prefer properties with unique interior design elements like accent walls, plank flooring, and wine racks as well as exterior elements like attractive curb appeal.

Green Living & Energy Efficiency

Todays renters want to see low-energy appliances and better thermal performance from their apartments. Green ratings are becoming more popular with on line listing services so renters can search for and easily identify efficient apartments.  There is also an increased demand for green space. Some property managers are providing community gardens and food share programs for their green conscious clientele.

Increase in Renters

The current economic climate has created an environment where fewer individuals are purchasing homes and more are renting. This is especially true with young adults that view renting as more convenient, more affordable, and more flexible than homeownership. This trend is expected to only increase in the coming years.

Lease Only Services versus Property Management

What to Look For in Property Management Contract

What to look for in a property management contract

So you’ve found a great property manager and now it’s time to move forward with the property management contract. The question then becomes: what should you look for in the property management contract? Even if the manager is reputable, there still may be some points in the contract that do not suit your current needs.  Don’t be afraid to scrutinize the contract and ask for changes that you feel are important.

Full disclosure: I am not a lawyer and this blog post should not be used as legal advice in any way.  A property management contract is a legal document.   Always consult your attorney and/or advisors before signing any legal documents.  

Here are some items that you should look for in a property management contract.

1. What is the duration of the contract? You might not want to be locked into a long-term contract, especially if you’re not familiar with the property manager. In that case, it’s probably best to start with a shorter-term contract. Once the manager has been established for a while, and your confidence has grown, subsequent contracts can be longer term.

2. Be sure that the services and the fees are spelled out clearly. Upon selecting the property manager, you probably received a verbal  quote “10% of the gross rent” or something along those lines. The full contract, however, is much more complicated than that. The contract should spell out exactly what services will be performed by the manager, and at what expense. Some managers may charge for “extra management duties” which were not spelled out in the verbal agreement.

3. Be sure that the agreement specifies Equal Housing Opportunity. You don’t want to run afoul of fair housing laws. Your property manager should be well versed in fair housing laws and operate in accordance with those laws.  If your property manager is acting as your agent then you could potentially be liable for the actions of your property manager.  This should be spelled out in the contract.

4. Check the termination clause. In case either you as the owner or the property manager wants to terminate the relationship early, the terms need to be specified clearly in the contract. In your case, ensure that the contract does not require cause to terminate the agreement, and that it can be terminated without penalty.

Property management companies can be a wonderful resource for real estate investors. Contracts between them and the property owners, however, should be examined with scrutiny to ensure that the interests of both parties are protected fairly.  As with any legal documents it is always a good idea to consult your attorney and or advisor and have them take a look at the contract.

Apartment Finders

What to look for in a rental property listing company

Most rental property owners have a lot tied up in their properties financially, and as a result they have a lot of responsibilities making sure that it is taken care of properly.  One major concern is finding the right renters for that property who will be good tenants.  The world is full of so many different types of people that it can become quite a chore to sift through all of the applicants. Thankfully there is help to handle the daunting task of finding new tenants with the skilled expertise of people who specialize in this job.  

A professional rental property listing company provides a service that is appreciated by both parties involved. Prospective renters receive knowledgeable assistance to help them find just the right place, and the property owners benefit from the talented professionals who can handle the chore of filling vacancies for them. That means that you no longer need to worry about making time available to show the property or waste time waiting for no-shows. The experts are skilled at screening renters to make certain that your potentially new renters are qualified.  You won’t have to be concerned with placing expensive advertisements because these professionals have access to a huge network of exclusive rental websites, referral networks, print and social media that can save you a lot of time and expense.

The right property leasing and marketing professionals are very highly trained to be successful at finding great tenants for your properties, which helps you get the most value for your investment. And, of course you have the final say in approving the qualified renters that are matched with your property, giving you peace of mind.   Look for a professional rental property listing company with a dedicated property listing expert to handle your rental so you have someone who’s sole focus is your rental property – as opposed to selling real estate or providing other unrelated services.    They not only advertise your property, but also can take photos and video, place a professional sign on your property, field all telephone inquiries and pre-screen potential renters.

So not only do you save the time and expense of advertising to search for new tenants, but you also save yourself the trouble and inconvenience of conducting showings or property tours and running background checks as part of the tenant screening.  It is pretty obvious that this is a very smart choice for landlords in need of good tenants.  Find out more information about Housing Helpers rental property listing service and how “we connect people with places” by calling our office at 303.545.6000 or click on Rent My Property

Five benefits of hiring a property manager for real estate investors

People looking to invest in rental properties as a means of diversifying their asset portfolio will usually find themselves asking the following question: should I use a property manager or manage the property myself?

The answer is an unequivocal: it depends. Property managers are known to take between 7% and 20% of the gross rent. This means, simply put, that a property manager is an expense to owning the property, in addition to maintenance, taxes, insurance, and a variety of other expenses associated with real estate investment.

That said, there can be inherent advantages to hiring a good property manager.  Here are a few of them.

1. A good property manager can add value to the property.  This is one often overlooked value of using the services of a property manager. If the owner ever wants to sell the property, one excellent selling point in any advertisement is a line like this: “Property management already in place.” This makes it easy for new (and even existing) real estate investors who are looking to enhance their portfolios with good properties that already have sound management.

2. A good property manager gives the owner more free time. Time is money. If the owner has more free time that is not consumed by answering midnight calls about toilets that won’t flush or examining the property for obvious problems on a periodic basis, then that owner is free to do other things, such as look for other real estate investments.

3. Good property managers can shorten vacancies. A property manager has a full time job that includes, among other things, showing the property. The property owner may not, and probably does not, have the kind of time necessary to devote to showing the property. This means that, not infrequently, accomodations have to be made for scheduling conflicts between the owner and the prospective tenant. This would usually increase the vacancy time for the open unit. Vacancy time, of course, means that the owner is not receiving rent for that unit.

4. Property managers take care of a lot of administrative work. This is not only a time-saver, but is also a nuisance-saver. Property managers will keep track of expenses, will handle receipts, and provide monthly, itemized accounting information to property owners. This saves a lot of hassle when it comes time to file taxes.

5. Good property managers stay up to date on local and federal rental housing laws.  There are federal rental housing laws such as the Fair Housing Act.  And there are state and local laws that vary based on location.   Some cities, like Boulder Colorado, require rental properties to be licensed under City law.  In Boulder rental properties must pass a detailed property inspection and pay an administrative licensing fee.   If a real estate investor is not current on local and federal rental housing laws it could end up costing them a lot more than the cost of rental license fee.

While property managers certainly cost money, the benefit gained from investing in their services is a sound return on investment. Real estate investors who don’t want to have their time monopolized by adminstrative tasks and management hassles would do well to use the services of a good property management company.

Winterizing Your Rental Property | Helpful Tips For Landlords and Renters

Boulder Winter Flatirons  Even though the cold season has been slow to arrive this year, there is no doubt that a Colorado winter is sure to happen sooner or later. If the weather forecast is to be believed, it is likely to happen sooner rather than later! When it does, you don’t want to discover that your home or apartment wasn’t ready for the frozen flakes and sub-zero temperatures. Below are a few tips for winterizing your rental property and whether you are an owner or a renter, using these tips could save you a lot of unnecessary money and shivering down the road.

In order to avoid a lengthy to-do list, the following information is presented with the fitting acronym of SNOW-Seal, Note, Outside, and Windows.

Seal: The first step to winterizing your rental unit is to seal any holes, cracks, or crumbling mortar. A good way to find these often hidden nooks and crannies is to wait for a windy day and then carefully comb through your property in search of any drafty spots.

Key areas to check include walls, window sills, wood trimming, siding, and near electrical outlets and doors. With a thorough inspection, you’re bound to find a few places that need additional caulking or weatherstripping. Using caulk, tacky rope caulk, or weatherstrips in these areas will help keep the weather out and the warmth in.

Small gaps and holes can generally be fixed with a simple caulking, but larger problems may require a self-adhesive foam found in a local hardware store. If it’s an issue of a draft sneaking through beneath exterior doors, you can either replace the entire threshold or just insert a seal in the threshold. With any of these seal solutions, ensure that you try to find the exact fit- otherwise, get one size bigger and trim it down to the proper size. Trying to seal a spot with something too small will only lessen the problem, but not eliminate it.

Note: The next item in our SNOW tip list is “N,” for “Note”- and I don’t mean the type you used to write to your third-grade crush in elementary school. There are two primary components at play here- the heating system and the alarm system.

First and foremost, take note of your heating system before you need to rely on it through the cold winter days. Also check the pilot light and burners if your heating system runs on gas or oil. The filter should not only be checked at the onset to winter as well as checked (and if need be, changed) every month to avoid dust and pollutant build-up and increase efficiency.

Another item to note are the air ducts. The U.S. Department of Energy states that a centrally-heated home can lose as much as 60% of the heated air before it even reaches the vents if the ductwork is not done properly.  In other words, it pays to ensure that those air ducts are both well-connected and well-insulated. It’s also a good idea to vacuum them out every few years to allow easier air flow devoid of gunk and grime.

Another very important item to note for winterizing your rental is the alarm system. This includes both smoke alarms and monoxide detectors. The batteries should be checked twice a year to ensure they are working properly. Beyond the biannual check, however, it is vital that they are in working order for the winter months when homes and apartments are more likely to be enclosed with running heat and therefore more susceptible to fire dangers.

Outside: This section covers the importance of winterizing gutters, roofs, and outside faucets. A long autumn can cause a build-up of leaves and other windblown items into your gutters, but it is well worth clearing out before the snow demands the space. If snow falls on clogged gutters, it will hinder the water from effectively draining from the roof. This trapped water could potentially freeze, thaw, and re-freeze several times throughout the winter which can damage not only the gutters themselves, but also the attached roof.

In addition, pay close attention to any loose or damaged shingles because the weight of snow is bound to worsen their conditions. Finally, if applicable to your rental property, the chimney is another outside element to consider. Beyond the general sweep, it should be inspected as soon as possible in order to avoid unpleasant surprises later on.

A final word on the outside section concerns the curse words of winter, “frozen pipes.” It is important the note that your lease may hold you responsible for any damages that come as a result of frozen pipes, so taking caution in this matter is not only recommended- it may be required. Wrapping exposed pipes with heating tape or some sort of insulating cover is a good way to start. In addition, it is also important to drain any exterior spigots and pipes so as to avoid freezing excess water.

Windows: We have reached our final letter of SNOW, the “W.” Here it stands for the all-important windows element of winterizing. If storm windows are not an option, you can still enhance your heat efficiency by protecting them with plastic sheeting. This form of window insulation is installed from the inside with a double-stick tape. From there, use a hair dryer to affix the sheeting to the window. It may not be the prettiest addition to your home, but it will assuredly increase the heat efficiency by trapping the warm air inside.

If you can’t stand the look of it, another idea is to install curtains. An appealing drape will also provide a buffer between you and the winter outside.

A few last tricks of the trade to keep your rental property warm and cozy this winter is to consider your furniture placement. Take a stroll around your living space and ensure that no heat sources are blocked by furniture, which can prevent effective airflow. Aside from the fresh perspective that newly positioned chair can give, who knew that it could also keep you warmer.

Lastly, turn on the ceiling fan! By reversing the fans, you will actually push the warmer air downwards to a level where you can enjoy it.

Ultimately, the aim of the SNOW list is to keep you as warm as possible by being as heat efficient as possible. If you’re still in the market for a rental property or hoping to rent out your space this winter, consider using Housing Helpers to make this possible!
