Should You Manage Your Rental Property or Hire a Property Management Company?

Should You Manage Your Rental Property or Hire a Property Management Company?

Deciding whether to self-manage your rental property or hire a professional management company is a significant decision for any property owner. In Wilmington, North Carolina, property management can be particularly challenging due to the specific local regulations and market demands. We understand the complexities and offer tailored solutions to meet the needs of property owners, whether they choose to self-manage or seek professional assistance.


Time Commitment

The first question to ask yourself is, "Do I have the time to manage my property?" Many people underestimate the amount of time required to effectively manage a rental property. From getting the property rent-ready to advertising and showing it, the tasks can quickly add up. Additionally, managing emergency maintenance calls and overseeing repair work requires a 24/7 commitment. If you cannot dedicate this time, self-management might not be the best choice for you. Our services ensure that emergencies are handled promptly, giving you peace of mind knowing that help is available around the clock.

Expertise and Knowledge

Another critical aspect to consider is whether you possess the necessary skills and knowledge to manage your property effectively. Property management involves understanding current laws, HOA rules, and regulations related to collecting rent, filing evictions, and managing tenant relationships. Many owners start self-managing only to realize later that they lack this expertise, leading to costly mistakes. By choosing our full management services, you can avoid these risks and ensure that your property is managed in compliance with all legal requirements.

Flexible Services

We understand that some owners prefer to self-manage to save money but still need assistance with certain aspects. For these owners, we offer specialized leasing services. We handle the marketing, showing the property, receiving rental applications, and even helping with lease paperwork. Once a tenant is secured, we hand back the management to the owner. This approach allows owners to benefit from professional assistance during the critical stages while retaining control over the ongoing tenant relationship.


Ultimately, the decision to self-manage or hire a property management company depends on your time availability, expertise, and comfort level with managing rental properties. If you find that self-management is too demanding, we are here to help. Our team is equipped to take over any stage of the property management process, ensuring your investment is well-cared for. Contact us today to learn more about our services and how we can help you make the most of your rental property.
