Property Management Seattle

November 15, 2022

Property Management Seattle

2022 was a great year for rent prices in Seattle.

Zumper’s rent pric report shows how strong they were up to the fall and despite a recent drop, it looks like they’re rebounding.

Is it due to a return of corporate staff and a reversal of the work at home trend? Could Redmond, Seattle and Kirkland rental markets revive?  It seems the market is firming up and 2023 might be a great year for rental property owners.

Landlords in Seattle still challenges of finding good tenants, advertising listings, collecting rents, onboarding, and perhaps carrying out evictions. It’s a big job that many landlords aren’t often trained or equipped to handle, let alone efficiently.

Your time spent finding a professional property manager might be time well spent.

Growing house rentals outside of greater Seattle too, has resulted in an increasing demand for property management companies.  2023 may show great promise for starting a property management business.

ManageCasa will be in Seattle, Washington at the PNW Property & Innovations Trends Conference being held at the Seattle Convention Center on Tuesday, November 29th, 2022. It’s a 1 day event and we’ll be delighted to see you there. Please do drop by our exhibition booth #711.

There’s plenty to discuss and you can ask your vital business questions to ensure your property management company excels in 2023.

This is the major event for the Pacific Northwest region with lots of reasons to attend. Learn more about the event and how you can register.

 

Finding a Property Manager in the Seattle Area

Given the financial, operational, and likely insurance requirements, you’ll want to hire a licensed property manager to manage your rental properties in Redmond, Kirkland, Seattle, Tacoma, Everett, Kent, Federal Way, and Renton.

Each company listed below offers similar services however, the managers and specialized services help to differentiate them.  Those services include rent analysis, legal guidance, and tenant screening abilities.  Some may not offer eviction services or may lack specific professional skills.

It’s good to review them thoroughly, including their professional accreditations. We provide this list as a courtesy and this does not connote an endorsement of these firms listed below.

Professional Accreditation: IREM and NARPM Membership

Property management is considered a real estate activity.  It’s important to ensure prospective property managers are members of a recognized association and have passed the educational and legal requirements to operate a property management company.

If the respective company, such as those listed below have staff who possess a CPM certification and are members of IREM and NARPM, it brings more confidence for you. IREM (which administers the CPM certification) has a chapter in Washington State.

Of course, you can find more about how to choose a property management services company on our site, and focus on what is the best property manager.
