Questions to ask a Property Manager before you hire them

Posted on Sunday, December 5 2010

Hi Team,

I have put together a list of questions to ask a prospective property manager, if you are considering hiring one.
If you, like me, own properties in various parts of New Zealand or the world, then Property managers are essential for keeping the portfolio professionally managed with maximum returns.

Ha, and lets not forget, if just like me you would rather chase the deal then the tenants or maintenance.
