Let’s set up a scenario: You have a beautiful rental property in the Hamptons that overlooks Two Mile Hollow. However, you’re a jet-setting entrepreneur and don’t have the time to maintain and manage all the details of your property.
If you don’t already have a caretaker, a property management company handle everything to ensure your home is well taken care of, and your tenants have a great summer.
What do property management companies do?
A property management company is a third-party entity that oversees the property and is responsible for appeasing residents and watching over all matters involving the property. The typical duties of a property management company include, but are not limited to:
Screening and approving tenants
Calling for or conducting maintenance
Handling eviction proceedings
Some property management companies may carry out extra tasks, such as delivering and picking up dry cleaning, holding mail, and arranging pet sitting.
Why you should have one
Hiring a property management company to watch over your second home can be very beneficial for a few reasons. One, it can save you a lot of time. Two, it could possibly save money to have someone managing the service and billing to reduce waste and redundancy. Hiring a property management company is an excellent idea if you have a summer home in the Hamptons. If you’re away during the winter months
, it’s beneficial to have a caretaker check the property weekly or bi-weekly.
Our favorite companies
There are many property management companies in the Hamptons to choose from, so we have chosen five that are the cream of the crop. When you decide on a management company, it’s essential to select the one that best suits your needs. For example, if your home has an in-ground pool, you may want a company that offers pool maintenance and repair. Or, if you want your tenants to have the ultimate luxury experience, you may decide on a company that greets them upon arrival and handles their luggage.
