Looking for the best property management companies in Tucson?
Rising at a 1.1% growth rate as of 2023, Tucson, Arizona is a promising market that investors might have their eye on.
However, acquiring a property is only half the battle if your goal is to use it as a rental. Especially if you’re an out-of-state investor, you’ll likely need a property manager.
Property managers are valuable for many reasons. A good PM has a thorough screening process for tenants, lowering the chances of eviction. They either offer in-house maintenance or have a network of maintenance vendors to choose from for timely repairs. Tenant coordination, accounting, and inspections are items that also can be taken off of your plate.
But choosing a property manager comes at a strong chance of either risk or reward. The right property manager will save you time, money, and stress, while a poorly equipped manager can cost thousands.
That’s why research and careful consideration are vital. Reviews, fee types, and offered services are a great place to start.
In this blog post, we put together a list of some of the best property management companies in Tuscon, Arizona.

Evernest was established in 2008 at the beginning of the housing crisis. Our founder, Matthew Whitaker, was left with 30 investment properties that he intended to sell but was unable to do so when the residential housing market crashed.
