Should you hire a Vancouver property management company or do it yourself? There are many different factors ranging from your level of involvement, geographical location, to the property itself. If you want to be involved with every aspect of the rental process, and embrace handling unexpected issues and confrontations, then you are probably well suited to manage the home yourself. If on the other hand, you don’t want the hassle or value your Vancouver rental homes long term equity vs. saving a few dollars, then you may want to consider a property rental company as a viable option.
Before jumping in, ask yourself the following:
Do you normally DIY or hire professionals?
Do you handle confrontation well?
Are you always available around the clock?
Have access to cost effective, 24 hour-a-day tradesmen?
