Have you recently purchased a mobile home park or RV park? If so, you may be wondering whether or not you should hire a property manager. While there are some downsides to hiring a property manager, such as the cost, there are also several benefits that you should consider. In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the benefits of hiring a property manager for your new mobile home park or RV park.
A property manager can screen tenants
If you don’t want just anyone living in your mobile home park or RV park, then you’ll need to screen tenants yourself. This can be time-consuming and difficult to do if you’re not experienced in tenant screening. A property manager, on the other hand, will have experience in this area and can quickly and easily screen tenants for you.
In fact, we have an entire module inside of Mobile Home Park Classroom dedicated to screening potential tenants that you or your property manager can watch to learn how to screen properly. If you already own Mobile Home Park Classroom, check out Module 5: How to Screen Mobile Home Park Tenants.
A property manager can Oversee maintenance and repairs
At some point, something in your mobile home park or RV park is going to break down or need repair. When this happens, it will be up to you to handle the situation if you don’t have a property manager. This can be time-consuming and expensive, especially if you’re not familiar with dealing with repairs and maintenance.
A property manager can create business relationships with local plumbers, electricians, sewer and septic specialists, etc., and when problems arise, your property manager can oversee these things for you so that you don’t have to worry about them. If you already own Mobile Home Park Classroom, see Module 10: How to Work with Employees and Contractors inside of Mobile Home Park Classroom.
A property manager can deal with problematic tenants
Even if you do a good job of screening tenants, there’s always the possibility that someone will become a problem tenant at some point. If this happens and you don’t have a property manager, then it will be up to you to deal with the situation. This can be difficult and stressful, especially if you’re not experienced in handling problem tenants.
A property manager can take care of problematic tenants for you so that you don’t have to deal with the stress and anxiety that comes with this part of the job.
There are several benefits to hiring a property manager for your new mobile home park or RV park. While there are some downsides to hiring a property manager, such as the cost, the benefits outweigh the negatives. If you’re looking for someone to help screen tenants, handle maintenance and repairs, and deal with problem tenants, then a property manager is the perfect solution for you! If you want to make sure your property manager is properly trained, you get unlimited Property Manager editions of the program when you purchase the Owner’s Edition.
