So you have a new investment property, and you’d like to rent it out. In researching the requirements surrounding being a landlord, you decide you want to hire a Professional Property Manager. Good decision! (Check out our blog post Is Self-Managing a Big Mistake for New Landlords? by clicking here.) The #1 way to find the best residential Property Manager is to look at their involvement in the community. If the company contributes positively to the community, has membership in professional organizations and ideally designations through them, and has maintained these positive relationships for a period of years, you’ve found a company you can trust. Trust is the most important element of successful Property Management.
The National Association of Residential Property Managers, or NARPM®, is the number one Professional Association for residential Property Managers throughout the USA. For anyone wanting to ensure their Property Manager will work in accordance with a strict Code of Ethics and stay educated on all ever-changing industry issues, the company’s membership is a must.
NARPM® awards designations to Property Managers based on experience, training, and involvement in the community where they work. The requirements are vigorous, and take years to achieve. (Read the requirements for designations by clicking here.) So if your Property Manager is a member with at least some of NARPM’s designations, you know you’re hiring someone who has been in the business for awhile, and knows what they’re doing.
NARPM® requires a commitment to training and ongoing education, so you know your property manager is up on the current local and national laws, and the most cutting edge programs and tools for Property Management. You know that if a company holds the NARPM@ designations, they are always learning and growing.
NARPM® created the Code of Ethics and Standards of Professionalism for the National Association of Residential Property Managers. All Property Managers who are members of NARPM® must abide by the Code of Ethics and Standards of Professionalism (the “Code”), so you know if your Property Manager is a member, that they have accountability and are held to a higher standard.
