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 and high risk for you (think evictions and damages).  The old phrase "you get what you pay for" applies to property management.  Real estate sales agents sometimes perform property management services for less compensation in the hope of obtaining the sales listing.  Their focus is not on property management, just sales.  Does that perspective give you the comfort that your investment is being properly maintained?

When an account produces "marginal" income, 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 (liability to you) that may occur on your investment property at any time.

7) What business is the company really in?

Ask this question, is the management company devoted to just property management for single-family homes, duplexes and condominiums?  Or, is their primary interest in selling properties, or managing apartments, or managing commercial properties?  First and foremost, Rollingwood Management's primary business and dedication is the management of single-family homes, duplexes, and condominiums.
