So you’ve been through the numbers and found a great real estate rental property that you’re proud of. Congratulations are in order for you but the most crucial still lays ahead.
Management of your property is just as important as the purchase of your rental property. Do not sway from this point of contention because you need to have the energy and market savvy to insure that your investment will pay off.
If you intend to make real estate a business then you must treat it as a business. I know you’ve heard that before but no matter what type of business you have you will need a support group.
This support group can make you or break you if you don’t select the right people. A good support group can identify problems and get them fixed right away. A less than acceptable support group can make your life miserable as well for your tenants.
The first step in hiring staff for your business is to advertise. Putting an ad in the paper will give you outstanding results. There are plenty of people each and every day scouring the ads for something that they can do to make money.
Getting these ads in the right type magazines is also important because like minded people for the most part will be reading for these opportunities.
Let’s take a back step at this point to make sure that you need to know what you’re looking for in a staff support person. Congeniality, common sense and being personable are just a few of the personality traits that you must be looking for.
The customer service support team that you select will reflect you. You need to feel comfortable with the person that you will depend on for your real estate business.
Taking your time in hiring a customer service person is the first criteria because you don’t want to pick a person that isn’t out for the good of your company.
This is a time for reference checking to see what type of person is being interviewed. You need to do just as an extensive background check for your future employee as you did with your tenants. Without a proper background check you really don’t know what type of
person they are.
Laying down the requirements of the job like punctuality and good time keeping skills is a must. You must be able to rely on this person for all the paperwork and phone calls that may come in once you start your business.
This person is someone that will come in contact with many of your possible ventures that you encounter throughout your business life.
Making sure that you select the right person for the job will cement in the future for you. You will be able to start making a lot of deals knowing that you have a person that will complement you with a customer service support that is second to none.
You do right by that person and they will do right for you.
