When Should You Hire A Property Management Company

In addition to vacation rentals at the Lake of the Ozarks, Keys to the Lake also manages properties in the Lake area. If you own a vacation home at the Lake of the Ozarks and are thinking about renting it out to make a little extra money, you may want to consider hiring a property management company. If you don't know if your rental is right for a property management company, here are seven moments when you should hire a professional company to manage your property.

1. When you don't live in the area. If you manage your own vacation or long-term rental, you're limited to investment properties within the radius of the area you live in. By hiring a property management company, you can take advantage of investment opportunities in any location you wish - including the Lake of the Ozarks! 

2. When you need a little help with marketing. When you hire a property management company, you will not have to worry about all of the advertising and marketing that goes along with it, as they will handle that all for you. You can just sit back and relax and let the property management company do all the hard work for you. 

3. When you need help finding the right tenants. When you hire a reliable property management company at the Lake of the Ozarks, they can help ensure your property is rented to reliable tenants. At Keys to the Lake, when finding long term rental tenants, we have a 4-point application process to ensure your property is rented to the right person. We run a criminal background check, credit check, rent or mortgage history and we do an employment check.

4. When you need help managing tenants. In addition to helping find the right tenant, a property management company can help you manage them. They can manage all aspects of the tenant-landlord relationship, such as routine and emergency maintenance, inspections, and manage any situations where conflict resolution is required.

5. When you need help with maintenance. Managing a rental property, whether it's a long-term or vacation rental, can take a lot of work, time and money. A property management company has a team of employees who can help ensure your property is in tip-top shape. When a tenant has an issue, we are local, so you know it will get taken care of in a timely manner.

6. When you need help making sure you're in compliance with the law. There are many laws and regulations you need to abide by when renting property. A property management company deals with these laws and regulations on a daily basis, so you know your property will be in good hands.

7. When you need help maximizing your time and money. By having a reliable Lake of the Ozarks property management take care of the day-to-day aspects of running your rental property, you'll have more time to do the things you love. In addition, a good property management company will know how to properly price your unit for it to get rented.

When every little thing means everything, Keys to the Lake is the premier choice of discriminating clients. In a crowded world, we know you will find Keys to the Lake is a voice, not an echo. Whether you are needing property management for your vacation or long term rental, we can help. In addition to property management, we also offer real estate, long-term and vacation rentals at the Lake of the Ozarks. We give our clients the peace of mind that things will be done right the first time and on time.
