Everyone knows how difficult it is to keep your finances in order. Sometimes it can feel like all you’re ever doing is waiting for the next bill. In manufactured home and RV communities, you can get overwhelmed and behind before you know it. 

 
The idea of hiring a property management company to handle your finances when they feel threatened might seem daunting. In fact, you might feel like it’s counter intuitive if anything. Handing something over to another company as crucial as your finances is a big step, but it can make a difference in your community. 

Take a moment to look over the questions below to assess whether you should consider hiring a property management company in your community. 

  • Do you have the need for timely, accurate and comprehensive financial reporting?
  • Do you need a more detailed explanation of the financial health of your community?
  • Do you have special reporting needs for partners or lenders that require more than the typical monthly reports?
  • Are collections and resident ledgers a challenge?
  • Would an automatic payment system help your cash flow?
  • Are payables too time consuming?
  • Are you missing out on discounts from vendors and contractors because you are not part of a larger group?
