6) What about management fees?

Your investment is a valuable asset and should be maintained as such. Using a low-priced service can often lead to poor results.  The old phrase "you get what you pay for" does apply to property management.  Property Managers and real estate sales agents sometimes perform these services for less compensation in the hope of of obtaining the sales listing.  Their full focus is not property management but sales

When an account is "marginal", what does the manager have as an incentive to be mindful of your investment?  You need someone with qualified and experienced property management people and skills to handle any problem that may occur at your investment property at anytime.
