Here is the easy answer: Probably not!
Why you say? Unlike commercial property management you need to be able to be flexible to when tenants and prospective tenants are available. Residential tenants normally are busy during the day, so the best time to show properties, inspect units, and gain access to property to perform inspections is normally weekends and evenings. Without being available after normal hours it is going to make your job a bit more difficult.
Could you be successful working 9-5 in residential management? Maybe-but it will be more difficult. Best managers are available nights and weekends, at least occasionally, to take care of their prospects.
So if your goal is to be more successful as a current manager or getting into the field of residential property management, remember to be flexible with your time and you will be more successful.
