Tips on running a commercial property management firm
Owning property can make you set for life. Considering the high prices of land, owning a piece can bring in good returns provided you know what to do with it. For those not willing to part with their property or assets, there are ways that can ensure you make some cash. Renting out your property for business is a sure-fire method. All you need to do is to draw up a contract, finish with the legalities and rope in customers.
And for those who don’t have the luxury of owning assets or property, there are other ways you can make money will a little know-how. Starting up a commercial property management firm can bring in big bucks. Here, you will be tasked with taking care of other people’s property. What is great is that you don’t need to set up a fancy, hi-fi office. All you will require is a central location from where you can operate.
You will need to establish contact with people involved in real estate transaction, rental agencies, HVAC, plumbers and electricians. Gather as many contacts as you can with as many skills as possible as they will come in handy especially during maintenance and repair work.
Open a business banking account for your finances. Hire someone with knowledge in accounting and learn how to handle your finances by yourself as well. Don’t leave money issues solely in the hands of someone else as you don’t want to get ripped off.
Running a commercial property management firm isn’t all about the technicalities, however, as there are other matters to consider. Maintain good relationships with the tenants as they can eventually make or break your business. Be firm with guidelines and regulations but be understanding during sensitive matters. Besides, maintaining contact with tenants will also give you a chance to inspect the property at close range and make sure it isn’t being abused.
Incorporate your venture against liabilities and lawsuits. You can insulate yourself and your business by hiring a business planning lawyer for a fee. This is not to say that you can never be sued; it just means that the chances of having a lawsuit slapped against you will be lower.
