The Best Property Managers in Houston TX Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire 


The state of Texas requires that property management companies in Houston TX have a state real estate license if they are engaging in renting, leasing, collecting rent, and finding tenants in their management of apartments or other rental properties such as mall and office buildings.  But that license is not specific to knowledge of property management.

So the state license is no guarantee that any particular property management company in Houston TX is even competent in property management, is doing business ethically, is providing real value, or satisfying its clients.

This makes it significant that all property managers in Houston TX who bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous clients to verify high satisfaction with their property management services, good complaint record, verified state license, verified liability and workers' comp insurance for your protection, using only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.




Property Management Companies in Houston
TX

Whether you need good residential property managers, commercial property managers or property management companies for retail property management in Houston TX, the best property managers know how to maximize your income by minimizing vacancies and finding tenants. Good property management companies in Houston TX also oversee maintenance to retain the value of your buildings.

Some property management firms in Houston TX have particular expertise in either residential or commercial property management and other properties including marinas, retail buildings, and mobile home parks. The kind of property you own will determine the experience and size of the property management companies you consider.

 


Responsibilities of Residential Property Managers in Houston
TX

Residential property management companies in Houston TX deal with tenants and are responsible for coordinating repair, maintenance, and tenant improvements. They often also collect rent, and remit taxes and make other payments.

The core responsibility of rental property managers (also called  apartment property managers) is to serve as the conduit between the tenants and the property owner. This can include dealing with overdue rent and tenant evictions. Some residential property managers are also responsible for renting out units, rental showings and tenant  contracts. They lessen the burden on the building owners by taking over tasks including maintenance appointments and overseeing tenant improvements. Good rental property managers will send monthly reports to the property owners to keep them up to date on financial and property details.

 
Responsibilities of Commercial Property Managers in Houston TX

Commercial property managers do many of the same tasks that rental property managers do, but they must also have experience managing multiple tenants, property management software and accounting systems, building security and management issues that are unique to commercial and retail spaces. The best commercial property management companies in Houston TX also pay the utility bills and expenses.

Commercial and retail property managers take care of the day-to-day up keep of the property and often advertise vacant properties and screen the potential tenants. Their expertise might also include minimizing vacancies and increasing the income the property generates. Experienced property management services can even increase profit by advising property owners on the price of available units based on comparable units in nearby areas.

 
Some Property Management Companies in Houston TX Are Better Than Others

The cheapest property managers in Houston TX usually aren't the best ones. Cutting corners and lack of full oversight lead to bigger expenses later on that could have been avoided.

The Prime Buyer's Report lists these Property Management Companies in Houston TX: Boxer Properties, Genesis Property Management, Greystar Management Service LP, CKM Property Management, Summit Rental Management, Francis Property Management, J Beard Property Management, JDH Property Management, Pegasus Property Management, Simon Property Group.
