    What is more important to you? Quality or price?

    If quality is your primary motivator, then these are some good questions you should be asking any agency before appointing them:
    1. How often are open homes booked? (this ones irrelevant during COVID)
    2. What days/times is my property manager available for private inspections?
    3. Look up one of the agencies rentals and enquire about it. Be difficult with your availability for viewing the property and see how proactive the agency is about scheduling a time (the difficult tenants with busy work lives are often great ones to snatch up).
    4. How many properties will my property manager oversee?
    5. What experience do they have?
    6. How long have they worked for your company? (also discuss staff turnover as agents changing every 6 to 12 months create big problems)
    7. Do you outsource any tasks offshore ?
    8. Do you outsource inspections (entry/routine/exit inspections)?
    9. Will i have a direct mobile number to my property manager?
    10. What will my total fees be annualised?
    11. Are you able to put me in touch with any of your current clients? (online reviews are easily faked. Pay more attention to bad reviews than the number of good reviews)
    12. Do you offer an online portal? (not everyone's cup of tea, but they're great for accessing docs and financials about your property 24/7)

    Although this varies dramatically based on the area and support network, ensuring the PM is NOT overloaded is key to good management! With tight profit margins, overloading staff makes a great business case- they're usually able to bring in as many managements as they lose, which is to say usually every client who ends up with a complicated situation that needs real managing.
