Comprehensive Marketing & Advertising
For each day your property is vacant, that’s money out of your pocket. Professional management costs are easily offset by shorter vacancy times. We spend thousands of dollars every month advertising our vacancies to get them filled – faster. Your property is advertised on high traffic rental and classified websites. A professional “For Rent” yard sign adds exposure to capture drive-by prospective tenants. We have a team in place to respond promptly to inquiries and advise prospective tenants on details about the property.
Thorough Tenant Screening & Selection
Placing the wrong tenant can quickly cost you what you save by managing a property yourself. Every tenant application is evaluated based on credit, criminal background, sex offender registry (where allowed by law), employment verification and residency/rental history. Our thorough screening complies with all applicable laws, including Fair Housing and Fair Credit Reporting Act.
Once we have found a qualified tenant, we will schedule the lease signing and a move-in condition assessment.
Our team manages the lease signing with the approved tenant, using our professionally prepared lease, and ensures that all proper contracts are executed correctly. At this time, rents, deposits and any fees are collected in accordance with local legal and financial regulations and recorded in your online account. We take the time to ensure that all lease signees understand the terms of the lease and answer any questions they may have.
After lease-signing, a member of our team will conduct a walk-through to document the condition of the property prior to the tenant moving in. This important walk-through assists in accurately assessing any changes in conditions when the tenant moves out.
Timely and Efficient Online Rent Collection
Nothing affects your cash flow more than late or missing rent payments. We collect the rent every month and deposit it into your account expeditiously. Our collection processes are professional but tough, and we are extremely diligent in collecting rent through a systematic, timely process.
Tenants are encouraged to pay rent online through our tenant portal to expedite processing times so you can get your money as quickly as possible. In addition, we treat each tenant respectfully and fairly, as a positive relationship with a tenant leads to timely rent payments as well as better care for your property
Routine Property Evaluations
Professional evaluations of your property, both inside and out, are beneficial to ensure tenants are complying with the terms of their lease and to assess property conditions.
Our team will conduct move-in, periodic, and move-out evaluations. Documentation and photographs from these evaluations assist in determining needed maintenance and repairs to maintain your home’s value and avoid costly repairs if left unattended. Evaluations also assist in resolving tenant issues that may potentially arise in the future.
Cost-Effective, Reliable Maintenance
Maintenance expenses can significantly impact your bottom line without timely, cost-effective repairs and upkeep. Let us save you time and money by managing all maintenance concerns to ensure repairs are completed in an efficient manner by professional, trustworthy maintenance personnel.
We partner with an extensive network of contractors and vendors to handle property maintenance and repair work, providing the professional level of service our landlords and tenants have come to expect.
Strict and Compliant Evictions
Even with careful placement there is occasionally a tenant who needs to be evicted. Our staff is extremely knowledgeable in state and local landlord/tenant laws. If the tenant does not pay rent on time or breaches the terms of the lease, we initiate the proper legal steps necessary, in the fastest possible time frame, to minimize your costs and get the property leased again.
Ask us about eviction protection. For property owners who opt for this plan, the local office will pay for the eviction should it become necessary.
Online Accounts and Reporting for Landlords
Our goal is to maximize your income and minimize your expenses. To keep track of your income and expenses we use a centralized accounting system. This all-inclusive accounting and reporting system, backed with itemized statements and tax documentation, keeps all your property management financial information organized in one place.
Real Property Management Focus provides each property owner with a password protected online account for easy access to financial reports any time you need.
