Many homeowners that are looking for a property management company in New York City are overwhelmed with the litany of services and fees associated with it that the larger property management companies provide . For instance, many professional property managers in Manhattan offer an extensive assortment of services for investors to choose from and they may range from sending out template letters to tenants to garbage disposal services. While this does give the investor more property management options, not all of these services are necessary. It will be an easy way to tack on more fees and get more money out of the homeowner/investor. Therefore, when you are looking for a professional New York City property management company, look for a company that keeps it simple and not over-complicate things with lists of services.
One of the nightmares that we have seen in the past is that an investor say in Queens signs a contract with a property management company that has too many fees that are not explained and when the beginning of the month comes around, you get hit with astronomical fees that were not expected. Both parties will have a bitter taste in their mouths and it can lead to an undesirable relationship. At Blue Harbour Property Management we keep things simple for you. Everything is set in stone with set fees. Also, the relationship will benefit as you will be assigned one person to your property and will be able to speak with him or her about fees or services as they become necessary. We like to keep our clients happy and have them understand how we work on a daily basis.
