DIY Commercial Property management Versus Hiring a Professional
Many times, commercial property owners will take on the challenge of managing a commercial property on their own, without really understanding what they are getting themselves into. Though property management at first may sound simple, it is anything but.

Property owners who choose to manage their own commercial properties must perform the due diligence to stay atop of federal, state, and local commercial property and tentant/landlord laws, building codes and zoning restrictions, manage maintenance and repair requests, maintain the exterior of the property, collect payment from tenants, manage occupancy, and manage the marketing and advertising of the property. These daily tasks can take away from the owner’s quality of life and take away from time that can be invested in other ventures, because they are bogged down with the day-to-day operations and management of the building.
