Professional Property Manager in Phoenix – 5 Signs You Need One

 In Property Management

Wondering if you need a professional property manager in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Glendale, or somewhere else in Maricopa County?

Randall Averitte, a property investor in Arizona and owner of Real Property Management Pinnacle, shares the 5 signs that indicate if you need to hire a property manager.


Sign 1: You have multiple rental properties. The more rental properties or units you have the more you benefit from hiring a property manager.

Sign 2: You are not interested in hands on management OR you are burnt out from managing your properties. Some people who enjoy finding good tenants, doing repairs, and keeping the property nice and under watch. Others view their rental property strictly an investment and want someone else to handle the day-to-day management tasks.

Sign 3: You don’t deal with stress very well.  Being a property manager comes with a lot of ups and downs. Simple tasks like collecting rent can cause the most level headed person to stress out when unpredictable problems arise.   Ask yourself how you would handle and react to the following situations with tenants:

  • Tenants get in a fight with other tenants or neighbors
  • They trash your property
  • The HOA is constantly down your throat for violations made by your tenants
  • They sneak in animals or extra people into the house
  • They refuse to pay rent because they are trying to work the legal system at your expense.

You may be surprised by what can happen, so honestly think if you can handle these and even more strange activities.

Sign 4: You aren’t available and on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Unfortunately, leaving town on business or vacation, being sick, or having other crises doesn’t dismiss you of your commitments to the property and tenants. Of course, emergencies don’t happen all the time, but when they do you have to be able to handle them right away even if its 3:00 am.

Sign 5: It makes financial sense to hire a property manager. This one has a few moving parts to thing about.

  • Does it make time sense? Does the time required to manage your properties take away from other things you could be doing? What is the best use of your time? The answer is unique to every person and their circumstances.
  • Will the income from your properties cover the cost of hiring a property management company? Take a look through your income statements to determine if it’s feasible. If it is, then the benefits compound each other in costs and efficiency. A professional property management company like Real Property Management Pinnacle uses cost saving connections and contractors that reduce the cost of repairs and maintenance. Additionally, their thorough annual budget for your property means you have a solid forecast of expenses they stick to.

  • “Had the opportunity to work with Riana most recently after purchasing 2 new properties. As an out-of-state owner who needs to know that my properties will be well taken care of, she was a breath of fresh air! I have worked with other companies and Riana simply stands out - she's very knowledgeable about the business and she's easy to work with. She returned my phone calls promptly and provided all the information needed in an efficient manner. A class act!”

  • We had a serious water issue in our home that we were renting from Real Property Management Pinnacle. The issue arose late in the day on a Friday and the water had to be shut off to the house. The shut off of the water landed us in a hotel for the weekend until everything was fixed and completed. I must compliment the staff because they worked with me late into the night on Friday until I was settled into the hotel. They gave me updates over the weekend until I was able to move back to my home at the start of the next week. They could have easily blown me off over the weekend, but they did not! I typically do not write reviews, but I was so happy with the service that I received, so I did in this case! Great company and great people!
