Property Manager Information
June 25th, 2017

Property managers are responsible for overseeing the everyday activities of different types of properties, from large apartment complexes to smaller solo family homes. Their exact responsibilities vary depending on the type and size of property they are managing as well as their contract. In general, property managers find and screen tenants, handle leases, collect and adjust rent, deal with complaints, handle maintenance and repairs and supervise other employees.
There are no minimum qualification requirements to become a property manager. You would, however, need to have some experience in this field. Property managers must have good leadership, organizational and management skills and an eye for details. They must be proactive in managing the property so they can thwart problems before they occur.
Prospective employers will want to know more about your work experience in this field. What kind of property did you manage? How large was it? How many residents did you have to deal with and how many employees? What makes you the right candidate for this role? You can find several more questions that are usually asked at property manager interviews when you go to Mock Questions.
