Tenants and landlords will do better with onsite management over 60 units and above. It is also more cost effective for the owner of the property. From my actual experience in property management.Don Lampasone
Our company recommends that for communities over 50 units, you need at lease a part-time management/leasing presence. Once you reach 100 units, you need full-time staffing.
In California, the landlord is required to hire an on-site resident manager for an apartment building of 16 or more units.
Generally on-site is better if the property can justify and support an on-site person - even if part time. Someone there to keep an eye on things 24/7 is always better than relying on off-site management.
can you list the properties of apartments that your database has that are 20 units for under 300,000
Yes, personally I would prefer onsite, I would think tenants would get better service and better commnunications
