Initial Property Evaluation
We tour the property, noting any areas that could be improved for a higher return from your investment. Then, we go over our recommendation for your rental rate. We’ll also talk about any rules you’d like to impose for the property. We’re here to answer any questions, so we can go over the benefits and disadvantages of the various guidelines you’d like to implement.
Marketing for Your Property
Our team of professionals embark upon your property, cleaning and repairing any leftover issues in order to prepare for a professional photographer to create an album that draws renters in. Included in the marketing package is a property write-up. We use this package to market your property on social media, over 200 real estate websites, and on print materials. Over the years, we’ve developed relationships with many real estate agents, who love telling their clients about the properties we manage, so we make sure to use our network of agents throughout the marketing process. We make ourselves available to show your property seven days a week, and we always offer potential tenants a legally binding application.
When the Applications Roll In
Once your property begins to receive attention, we research every potential tenant. Our team performs a background check, a credit check, and all references, including prior landlords and the subject’s employer. We use the information to create a biographical package, and then we forward all prospects to you for final approval.
We will advertise your property until we have our hands on your deposit, in case the prospective tenant changes their mind.
When It’s Time to Move In
Our legal team creates all our documents, so you know the lease agreement fully protects you and your property. At the time of signing, we go over all the terms and guidelines of the property with the tenant. At this time, we’ll give the tenant access to our Tenant Portal. We will also check to make sure your tenant has procured renters’ insurance, and we’ll accept their first rent payment.
Then, we do a walk through with the tenant, taking notes on a statement of condition which will subsequently be signed by the tenant.
We Handle the Accounting & Rent Collection
Our office team is made up of some of the most knowledgeable in the real estate industry. Our team members handle all aspects of rent collection, including receipt of payments, follow-up regarding overdue rents, enforcing late fees, and delivering pay or quit notices.
We also use meticulous tracking to document expenses, and we are available to make payments on your behalf. At increments throughout the year, you’ll receive detailed accounting reports. We also give you all the paperwork you’ll need to file your taxes, and suggest deductions that apply to your situation.
Your Property is in Good Hands with Our Maintenance Plans
Each year, we perform inspections to ensure your property is being maintained to our standards. We then inform you of any issues, such as safety or code violations, or repairs we think need to be made in order to get the maximum value from your property. At this time, we suggest a routine maintenance plan in order to prevent future emergencies.
Although we do our best to prevent them, emergencies to happen. So, we host a repair hotline, which is available to your tenants 24/7.
Whenever an issue arises, we keep you updated on all repair estimates. We work with a group of skilled, trusted, contractors, and our in-house team of professionals in order to get the most value out of all repairs or renovations. A member of our team is always on hand whenever your property is being worked on, acting as a general contractor. For larger projects, we shop around to ensure you get the best rate.
When it’s Time for Your Tenant to Move Out
When the lease is up, we handle all aspects of the move-out process. We inspect your property, detailing any damages in a condition report that includes estimates. We return the remaining security deposit to the former tenant, and then provide you with your portion, or use it to make the necessary repairs or upgrades to get the unit ready for the next tenant. After a thorough cleaning, we re-key the locks, and begin the process again!
