Job Description
A property manager's job description is as follows:

• He handles all business operations for his clients.
• Along with that, he has to be aware of the population and traffic growth surrounding that area.
• He helps in real estate negotiations of prices of the properties on behalf of his clients.
• He is aware of all the concepts that come with home selling and buying. Some of which include payments, laws, and registration.
• He has to advise clients on the varied ways in which their real estate investments can be maintained and increased in value.
• As a part of property management he has to look into the building maintenance projects, compiling financial data, resolving client complaints, inspecting sites, and looking into the health and safety factors as well.
• He has to have a thorough study and knowledge of the market which would include being updated about different rules like zoning, property laws, property values, taxes levied, and others.

Though a college degree is a preferred option, a high school diploma suffices for a job in introductory management positions. And while many receive vocational training, there are several who require a real estate license to work. That being said, half of these managers were self-employed in 2012. For the kind of scope and the (decent) pay that this profession provides, looking into this as a viable career option is quite encouraged.
