Why Hire a Property Manager?

A property manager is a full-time business that operates on the behalf of a property owner. In North Carolina, vacation property managers are also governed by the North Carolina Real Estate Commission and the NC General Assembly with the North Carolina Vacation Rental Act. The saying among our colleagues is that if you can run a vacation rental management business in North Carolina, you can run one anywhere in the world. We are experienced and professional property managers right here on Topsail Island. We know this market backwards and forwards, and here are just some of the things that a successful property manager can do:

Finding Tenants

One of the most important tasks a property manager must do is to secure a tenant for the homeowner. A vacation home property manager must also find multiple renters for shorter periods of time. Ward Realty vacation homes can have upwards of 30 or so tenants in a home per year. More and more tenants takes valuable time away from your normal daily activities, whereas at Ward Realty, this is what we do full-time. We have the skills, experience and technology to allow to provide for volume.


A vacation home must have several tenants per month/year instead of one per year. Marketing and advertising is a big player on finding the right tenants for you. We all know that there are new avenues to finding tenants, but are you finding the tenants whom you wish to return year after year? Ward Realty has thousands and thousands of prior customers who all want to vacation on Topsail Island.

Pricing Model

Ward Realty can help you price your vacation rental home correctly. Correctly is the most appropriate word because price, in many ways, is everything. Pricing a home too high can mean unoccupied weeks. At Ward Realty, we like to offer fair pricing for all involved, because we understand that more weeks rented at a fair price equates to a better annual revenue stream for the homeowner.

Bottom Line

A fair rate + high occupancy equals the gross income of a vacation rental. Have you thought about your bottom line though? There are expenses associated with renting homes at the beach. Maintenance, cleaning, quality furnishings, modern amenities all contribute to your gross income, but they can also greatly effect your bottom line. Ward Realty's years of experience and approach to saving the homeowner money can help you achieve the best bottom line on Topsail Island.

Day to Day Activities

A property manager collects rents, handles check-ins and check-outs, performs post-occupancy cleanings, performs and schedules light maintenance issues, handles emergency situations and does all of these tasks on a week-in week-out basis. We have our operations down to a science and we handle volume and transitions extremely well.
