Avoid property management companies that also sell real estate properties.
More often than not, national corporations do such multi functions promising to give you everything and ending up giving you nothing at all. Property management is a niche company so you might as well find one that can give you the niche service that you need.

Most of these companies serve as agents who manage properties because they want to be the first ones to be able to buy it when you put it on the market. The benefits of small but reliable service providers are extremely beneficial when it comes to property management companies.
Don’t choose a management company that is far from your property location.
If your property is in Fort Myers, then it is only essential that you find a local Fort Myers property management company.

Making the effort to check company background and reputation will help you hire the best one among your choices. However, it also best not to demand so much in terms of references from your candidates. A good property management company after all values information of its past and present clientele.
