The Benefits of Hiring a Property Management Company in Austin, Texas

Grant Williams - Monday, August 22, 2022

The decision to hire a property manager to oversee your real estate investment in the Austin, Texas area can make great difference in many ways over the duration of your ownership. 

Over time, a property manager will save owners time, money and can help prolong the life of their property. 

Below we highlight the benefits of using a property management company in Austin, Texas!

Accurately Pricing Your Rental Home

Everyone wants top dollar for their merchandise - landlords are no different. It’s typical for us to speak with owners who value their rental home immensely - as they should - but can also fail to see how a tenant won’t want to rent a 1 bedroom home for $3,000 a month.. 

Working with a property manager can get you off on the right foot from the beginning. Price your rent amount too high and your property could sit for months on the market, price it too low and you could miss out on serious money over the course of a year. 

An Austin property manager has access to the MLS and the most accurate data that gives them a f...

Service Dogs

We’re sure you’re wondering why this is a topic in our post.  This isn’t related to tenants having service or support animals, rather this is a mention for a local non-profit here in Austin that we really like!  They have an upcoming fundraising campaign that Stone Oak and our sister brokerage, Central Metro Realty, will be participating in through a matching fund.

Back to School Sales Tax Holiday

It’s almost time for schools to reopen for the fall semester. Texas offers a few sales tax holidays, and the next one is coming up August 5-7, 2022.  This can help you save money on things like school supplies and clothing.  View this link for details of the qualifying items and other info for the exemption available on purchases made during those days.  If you have any questions about this contact the Comptroller’s office directly.

Summer Heat

It’s hot out there as we all know, and we’re setting records.  Since mid-May we’ve had 45+ days of triple digit heat as of the writing of this post. That likely translates to AC issues when it comes to our role with you as a tenant.  ...

Austin Labor Shortages

On top of the supply chain issues, labor shortages in Austin are exacerbating the availability of maintenance and other services due to the steep incline of housing prices.  Many people throughout all labor demographics are having a hard time affording Austin’s high prices, which results in them moving to the outskirts, nearby cities, or leaving the region altogether.   This is making maintenance extremely difficult in some situations and is ultimately costing our clients more as you likely already know. Here is a recent article in the context of home builders being unable to complete projects.

Summer is in Full Swing!

With many days over 100 degrees, we’re feeling the full force of the Texas Summer.  We see a lot of HVAC requests without enough info, so please provide as much detail as you can if you’re having HVAC issues.  For example, don’t send a maintenance request that just says “AC” or “AC not working.”  We need to know why you think it’s not working, such as the thermostat is set to 75, but it’s 85 inside.  We will send you some troubleshooting steps before we determine if someone needs to be dispatched.  

Another issue we’re seeing a lot of is waiting to report an issue until the weekend. &nb...

Maintenance and Repairs

Time is of the essence when it comes to repairs in certain situations. We are facing an unprecedented demand for maintenance services while also dealing with a vendor labor market that is overloaded with work requests.  This is across ALL trades from fence builders to plumbers to HVAC vendors, and it's unlike anything we have ever seen in our industry. 

Our vendors are working feverishly to complete all maintenance and make-ready repairs in a timely manner. We ask that you please take this into consideration when requesting multiple bids for repairs and make-ready items. There are going to be scenarios where a second estimate may not be available in a timely enough manner and may do more harm than good when accounting for the time passed waiting for the bid.

Home Warranties HVAC and Extreme Heat

Please be advised that the Austin area has extreme shortages in trades to keep up with the construction that is happening all around the city. This leaves very little trade work willing to work with Home Warranties. In a case where you have an HVAC maintenance call in the extreme Texas heat, we may have to go outside of your Home Wa...
