What's it like to be a Property Manager?
Property Managers are responsible for organising, supervising and managing the letting of commercial, residential or retail properties on behalf of investors, landlords or owners.
Tasks and duties
- List properties, organise inspections for potential tenants, prepare tenancy agreements, negotiate and collect rental income.
- Conduct inspections of properties, liaise with tradespeople to organise maintenance and repairs as required.
- Address owner or tenant concerns, liaise with owners about difficult tenants and deliver termination notices, and prepare and handle contracts pertaining to the property.
Property Managers oversee the daily business operations of dwellings and commercial entities, including advertising, collecting rent, screening tenants, and organising maintenance and repairs.
Property Managers often manage more than one property at a time, so it’s important that they are organised, are excellent communicators and possess strong problem-solving skills.
