Not sure whether you need to hiring a property manager or a rental agent? You’re not alone in your confusion. Most people use both terms to describe a professional who leases rental units, manages the ongoing tenant relationship, and maintains the properties under his or her care.
However, Rental Agents are usually “leasing only” and it makes sense to refer to that person as rental agent or leasing agent rather than as a property manager. A Property manager is more of an expert of Maintenance items and other projects that need to be cared for on your property. A good Manager can often get services done faster and for much less then the going market rate.
