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.

Tampa commercial property management presents many challenges that are not typically faced with residential properties and requires an extensive amount of time and energy. If the property owner is not willing to or cannot afford to contribute the time that is needed to manage the property, it will simply end up in a stressful and frustrating experience for both the property owner and their tenants.


Though there are some advantages to managing a commercial property yourself, the disadvantages most certainly outweigh them. 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.


To get a better return on your investment and to ensure that your property is well-maintained, it is always better to hire a company that specializes in professional commercial property management in Tampa. A professional commercial property management company will have the best knowledge of the local rental market. They will know what the going rate for rent is, how much to expect in rent for the property, and how to market the property to maximize revenue.

A professional Tampa commercial property management company will know how to properly maintain the property so that it is appealing to potential tenants, and will now how to efficiently manage maintenance and repair requests to keep existing tenants satisfied. A commercial property management company will also ensure your compliance with federal, state, and local laws.
