Importance of effective and complete Lake Tahoe property manager

June 1, 2010

If you are a Lake Tahoe vacation homeowner, you have undoubtedly been faced with the many frustrations of dealing with service providers.  I have been there too and know the feelings and frustrations.  This brief post discusses the importance of an effective, complete, and capable Lake Tahoe property manager.  In addition, I will provide a few suggestions on how to find such.

Having a Lake Tahoe property manager that is comprehensive in their services and rental program is a first and important step when selecting a manager.  Having the luxury of being billed by only one service, and only having to schedule with one company makes your life a lot easier.  However, having a diversified and multi-tasking company can create room for error – being spread too thin, reliant upon too many people for a smooth operation, and can require a high calber of person to  manage such an operation for not only your home, but the 10’s or 100’s of homes they manage!

When looking for a property manager in Lake Tahoe keep these things in mind.  You want them to make your life as easy as possible, afterall that is what they are there for, but you want them to remain effective, organized, and capable of producing the results.  Results are the most important thing in this industry.  Results give you peace of mind, ensure your guests and home are taken care of, further escalating your success in the business of renting your home.  A broken system produces nothing but broken results.

This dynamic of needing a Lake Tahoe property manager capable of multi tasking, yet not becoming ineffective is something to always consider when interviewing prospective companies and agents.  On that note, when you go to a meeting or invite a manager into your Lake Tahoe property to discuss services, one of the most important things to do is read the person you are talking to – get a feel for them.  Although a well devloped business system, fancy website, nice business card and a guarantee are all nice things when deciding to sign your home over – at the end of the day it all comes down to a hand shake and looking the person in the eye and gauging their authenticity and sincereity.  Moreover, you are reading their capability.  Can this person really handle this amount of responsibility?  WIll this Lake Tahoe property manager be effective in managing my home?  Will they make my life easy and truly be good at what they do?  Will they survive and stay consistent in their committment to quality?

Often times, just reading someone will tell you more than any pages and documents ever can.  Although a bit off track, I felt it was important to mention these concepts when looking for a Lake Tahoe property manager, and the importance of these different elements of such companies.  The bottom line is find one that is diversified to meet all your needs, but capable of doing such and will remain effective in producing the results you are looking for.  I know this all seems common sense, and to most it is, but for those naive to renting a home and looking into this industry for service providers, I hope it can help.
