Rent Rate Assessment

The quickest way to maximize your cash-flow is to make sure that your rental rates are where they should be. We perform extensive research so that you get the most for your property. If you want us to assess the market value of your property, then just fill out the blue form at the top of the page. We'd love to help you out. It is completely free.

Rent Readiness

To ensure that you can get the top return on your rental property, the number one thing to keep in mind is comfort. Put yourself in the renter's shoes, and remember to think of your rental as if you were going to live in it. If something looks like it needs to be repaired, painted or replaced then it probably does. Our expert property managers are trained to do maintenance and repair on the property when it is 100% necessary for the functionality of the property.

Tenant Advertising – Local and Nationwide

Listing a property on our website pushes out to a multitude of other sites, Zillow, Trulia, Hotpads.com etc

We also list our properties in the MLS, and then place a for-rent sign in the yard.

And after 25 years of building quality relationships we actually get tons of referrals from tenants and other owners. All of this is accounted for in a national database built with history and records from the last 25 years.

Simply put, you'll never have to worry about losing money from due to a vacant property.

Screening: Credit, Criminal, Sex, and past renter history, terrorist list, employment verification

We use one of the most thorough screening companies on the market to get an extremely detailed background and screening report for every applicant. This allows us to only place the highest quality tenants in your property that will yield lower vacancies and quality long term relationships.

Regulatory Compliance

Our property managers are experts and in the know to make sure your property never costs you more money due to noncompliance.

Local ordinances, property codes, and housing laws. All County property experts ensure that you are informed if anything changes so you don't have any surprises.

Collections

When renters leave your property a mess and the security deposit will not cover it, we've got your back. We provide collection services to make sure you are not left eating unforeseen costs.

Repair and Maintenance

We are a full service management company. We can handle any issue associated with your property. Our vendors provide us with great service at the lowest possible prices and we do not mark up maintenance costs.

Trust us in ensuring that your property will be taken care of if the need should ever arise for a repair and or maintenance. We provide total transparency with our online owner portal so that you can see any damages that have been taken care of.

Online owner/Tenant Portal

The tenant portal makes it easy for tenants to pay rent online with a credit card or cash card. It also makes it a breeze to work with charitable organizations that help struggling tenants to pay rent

The owner portal is an online account to view statements and bills associated with your property. It provides transparency on all costs and fees reported to you in real time at your convenience.

Regular Inspections

Always be in-the-know with the condition and upkeep of your property. We provide the following inspection services:

  • Regular drive-by of the properties (once a month)
  • Interior inspections as needed per discretion of property manager
  • Annual inspections before lease renewal time

Eviction Process

We guarantee quality tenants, meaning that if there is a tenant evicted in the first 6 months of placing them, then we do not charge a leasing fee to place the next tenant. If the eviction happens within the first 6 to 9 months of placing a tenant then we charge half of our standard leasing fee to place a new tenant.

In the uncommon event of an eviction, we follow this procedure:

  • Late notice goes out immediately when the rent is late
  • At the expiration of the notice we contact you to let you know we have to file an eviction (we don’t waste any time)
  • Once we communicate this with you, we file the eviction and handle everything from there, including preparing for our next tenant placement.

A major benefit of having a property manager is the fact that you have someone in-state to handle evictions.

Communication

Typically we only need to contact owners when there is a problem. Your monthly rental deposit is your indication that everything is going well.

If you hear from us, other than to wish you happy holidays, then we’re most likely calling to let you know there is a problem with the property. We make property management as hassle-free as possible so you can enjoy the benefits of owning an investment property without having to think about the day-to-day responsibilities of being a landlord.

The owners portal provides you with any information you’ll need regarding bills and fees associated with your property.

Lease Preparation and Negotiation

We prepare and handle all leases for you. As a good practice, we have our leases regularly reviewed by an attorney

And when it comes to rental rates, rest assured that we get you the highest rates based on the local market. (see Rental Rate Assessment for more info on how we determine rent prices).

Renewals

Approximately 3 months before the lease expires, we do an interior inspection, we do a market research on the property, and we contact you the property owner with an update and to discuss the possibility of preparing a new lease for the tenant.

Every once in a while if we feel a tenant should not be renewed, then we will discuss that with you and prepare a notice to vacate. This helps us ensure that your property is only rented by the highest quality of tenants that will take care of your property for the long term. (Check out the Tenant Placement section to learn more about how we qualify and place tenants.)
