What are the duties and responsibilities of a property management company?

- Maintaining cash flow budgets and bookkeeping
- Collecting rent and sending out late notices as needed
- Communicating with tenants about ongoing maintenance requests or tenant issues

How much do property management companies charge?
Property management companies typically charge a percentage of your monthly or annual rent for their services. Often, there will be some hidden or additional fees for specific services rendered, but many property managers and management companies do not readily disclose these fees. As one of the best value property management company options in Toronto, we are proud to offer competitive rates and no hidden fees. We charge 6% of the rent as our monthly management fee, with a maximum cap of $190 for condos and $230 for houses. We have no minimum fee requirement. Most of our comprehensive services are included in that price, but we do have an additional fee for our seasonal inspections and tenant placement as applicable. To compare our fees to the top rental property management competitors in the area.

Why Hire a Property Management Company Vs. a Property Manager Vs. Real Estate Agent?
What is it about a full-service real estate property management company that is more attractive to work with than a standard property manager or a real estate agent?
When working with a property management company, you have access to not only a team of expert professionals with specialty focuses and many combined years of experiences dealing with: preparing properties for rental, attracting and vetting tenants, managing tenant relations, rent collecting, bill payments, dealing with maintenance requests, and emergency services.
You Also have access to the systems they have created for owners like you. Management companies also offer a higher degree of accountability, availability, and accreditation than you are unlikely to find with an individual property manager. Full-service companies have more to offer every step of the way and a full team of staff on hand when you want the most comprehensive and efficient service around. Their goal is to maximize your return on investment by attracting the best tenants and maintaining the property. Usually, property management companies have maintenance services, customer services and a team of property managers that are with you for the long-haul.
A property manager on the other hand is usually a one-person operation and a single point of failure.
A real estate agent is looking to place a tenant and get compensated for doing so but doesn’t inherit the potential issues that may emerge so the interests are not aligned, to say the least.
If you are a real estate investor looking to build real estate wealth over time you need a property management company to partner with.
What is included with Buttonwood’s real estate rental services?
Choosing the right tenants is a crucial part of your success as a real estate investor. Tenants who treat your property with respect and follow the rules are key, but how can our property management team help you find those tenants? With our rental services, we’ll use our experience, processes, and systems, to handle tenant screening and selecting tenants who will be a great fit for your rentals. Our rental services here at Buttonwood include:
- Customizing our strategy to suit your needs
- Prepping the rental property for renting
- Checking rental value and adjusting rental rates as necessary
- Handling inquiries and showings
- Tenant Screening
- Choosing tenants
- Creating and executing lease agreements
- Rent Collection
- Customizing our strategy to suit your needs
Can a property management company help me sell my investment property?
As a full-service rental investment company, we can help you sell your investment property! Selling a tenanted property, or one that is optimized for rentals is not always going to be easy with a traditional real estate agent relationship. We’ve learned as much through our own experiences and created a start-to-finish sales process. Our management of the finer details and affiliation with experienced agents at iPro Realty Ltd. make it possible for us to help you sell your investment property for top dollar with ease.
How can Buttonwood help me find premium investment properties?
In addition to our property management services, we have a comprehensive list of property features to look for when choosing an investment project. In particular, we look at these 12 factors:
- School district
- Facilities & amenities
- Demographics maturity
- Walk score
- Proximity to conveniences
- Proximity to the city
With our real estate market expertise in examining these 12 factors, we work with you throughout every step of the process, to help ensure you have a solid offer and to coordinate the details for a successful closing.
What is Buttonwood’s transparency promise?
Our commitment to transparency is evident in our day-to-day activities: Accessibility to Portfolio Records: Owners can access their portfolio folder at any time, 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Copies of invoices paid, management agreements, inspection reports, leases, monthly and year-end statements and any documents pertaining to their real estate portfolio will be easily accessed online by simply logging into their account. Simple Fee Structure: Our fees are clearly laid out on our website, so you know up front what your cost is and what services you will receive in return — no gimmicks and no hidden fees. Value Proposition: Our ongoing offer to waive our portion of the tenant placement fee has been and continues to be a great success. We stand by our promise that we are in this for the long haul. Excellence and the Pursuit of Continuous Improvement: Our highly qualified team understands that we are in a people’s business and provide customer service that is second to none. We are focused on long-term relationships, repeat business, and growth rather than an immediate quick deal and commission. We are always looking for investors who share that belief and value system and are committed to building real estate wealth with you over time.
