Services

Comprehensive Property Management Services: All-Inclusive

As an owner, you’ll get the benefit of our firm’s care and dedication. We know you’ll appreciate our thorough approach. From preparing your property and landing a great resident to conducting a meticulous exit inspection after a tenant has vacated the premises, we handle every aspect of property management with the ultimate respect for you and your renter.

Here’s a brief description of some of the services provided before, during, and after your resident has moved in.

Property Preparation

Our in-house maintenance team inspects your property and notes potential safety hazards or future problems that could adversely impact your property (e.g. water heater improperly strapped, inadequate caulking around tub and shower). Ideally, the home should be in good condition prior to leasing to achieve the highest possible rent return and to ensure a happy resident upon move-in. Happy residents stay longer at the property, making you more money through lower vacancy and turnover costs over the years.

Market Analysis

We will conduct a comprehensive analysis prior to marketing your property to secure the optimum rental rate with the least amount of days spent vacant.

Rapid-Response Maintenance and Repair

Your resident will be able to access our responsive, live service personnel 24/7 through our office for maintenance assistance. Again, happy residents want to stay at the property, making you more money over time.

Preparing a Lease

We will prepare all of the lease documents for the property, including all addendums and disclosures required by state and federal law.

Qualifying Prospective Tenants

We are serious about upholding your requirements. To that end, we inspect credit reports, assess rental and employment history, and verify income so that the occupants meet or exceed our minimum standards.

Digital Records Prior to Occupancy

A detailed inspection of your property immediately prior to occupancy will document the condition of your property prior to the resident’s move-in date.

Monthly Statements

Rent will be collected on the first day of each month. All bills associated with your property will be paid when due. A detailed monthly statement will be sent you with a check for the agreed amount. Funds can also be deposited directly into your bank account.

Semi-Annual Inspections

A maintenance technician will inspect your property twice a year, changing or cleaning your furnace and A/C filter, checking smoke detectors, and documenting the condition of your property along with any maintenance issues. A detailed written report will be mailed or e-mailed to you. Digital pictures will be included as possible. While this does involve a charge to the client, preventative maintenance costs (usually $100-$150/year in labor) are certainly a worthwhile measure of catching water leaks and anticipating future damage from residents or the environment.

Marketing

Our professional marketing programs include any or all of the following marketing strategies to secure the best-qualified tenants for your property in the least amount of time:

  • Pictures of your property on our website
  • Ads on rental websites with links to pictures on our website
  • Multiple Listing Service (MLS) that advertises your property to over 12,000 licensed real estate agents
  • Newspaper advertisements/rental flyers
  • Sign-in yard (if authorized by the owner and as allowed by any HOA)
  • Experienced leasing agents who are available on evenings and weekends and during normal business hours to show your property to prospective tenants

Exit Inspections

Once the resident has vacated your property, we will perform a detailed exit inspection. We will document the condition of your property and note any damage by the tenant in writing and with digital pictures. Initial inspection notes and pictures will be referenced to disburse your tenant’s security deposit as required.
