After you get free quotes to compare from local property management companies, you might want to use the following topics to narrow your search. After all, having the lowest price is not usually the best choice.
Not all Utah property managers offer the same types of services. You'll need to find out which type of properties they manage and what services they provide. Do they only do leasing? Maybe they only manage apartment buildings? It's ideal to find a manager who specializes in the type of property you want to rent.
Property managers charge different rates. Sometimes pricing can be a gimmick. Property management companies that are strangely affordable will USUALLY have other tactics for emptying your wallet - and may end up costing much more than a company who appears (upfront) to be more expensive. Be wary of sneaky wording and unnecessary fees — you can quickly get caught in an expensive trap.
Different Utah managers may approach certain situations with different strategies and tactics. They may also use different kinds of software and organizational systems. Their communication methods may be different, they may use different software, or maybe their company structure is different. Find a property management company with good SEO presence.
The contract you will sign with a property manager in Utah is very important. Some companies will have month-to-month services where you can cancel anytime, and others will have you commit to a long term contract of 9-12 months.

How to Narrow Your Property Management Choices
So... you have a list of 3-4 Utah managers who caught your eye? Now it's time to narrow it down to 1 before you hire. What are the last steps you will need to take? Here are two suggestions:
In Person Interview
Sitting down and having a conversation with contenders would be infinitely helpful. Take notes on what you speak about and what the individual’s replies are. Later, you’ll be able to compare notes from different conversations and figure out who excels. Make sure to have a set of questions to ask them beforehand (after requesting a quote from a company you can download our free template with 20 questions). You should ask them specific questions about their skills and services and managing style. It’s also important that they appear to be engaged and interested in earning your business. If the company is not hungry for you, and rather seems disinterested, keep on looking.
Furthermore, you can ask the property management company to show you the products/references of their work in the past. It’s also important to note the quality of advertisements they put out. You want to see exactly what they are going to be capable of when it comes to your property. Reaching out to some of the tenants renting properties managed by the company is a good idea too.
