We start the marketing process at the time we receive a 30 Day Notice to Vacate from your resident. If we can show the property while still occupied, we will put a sign on the property. Our For Rent sign includes our website, our 24 hour hotline and our property manager's name and number. Approximately 1 out of 4 prospects come to us from signage at the property. Many prospects come to one of our two locations to pick up a free list of our vacancies. We will take pictures of your property and place your property on our rental list on the internet, where we get fantastic results.
We will send you a letter in the mail when we first receive the 30 Day Notice to Vacate. This letter informs you of the move out date and the projected rent for the property. On the day the property is vacant we will inspect it, and call you within one working day to outline the property condition and recommended repairs (if any) to re-rent. You will have the opportunity to see your property at any time or do the work if you prefer.
After the move-out inspection, we will determine who is responsible to pay the bills to bring the property back to the condition it was in prior to the resident moving in. We are allowed by law to charge the resident's deposit for rent, damages above normal wear and tear, and cleaning. Our aim is to be sure the resident is charged for items that are their responsibility. We want you to know that we consider this an important time in the management cycle, and we will protect your interest.
Each property manager in our office takes a turn handling late night calls from our residents. Our 24 Hour Hotline will take the residents call and page the manager on call. We will then talk with the resident to determine how to proceed. Many times we solve the problem over the phone or by simply calling one of our plumbers that we have access to 24 hours a day.
Probably not. It seems there is a new property management company starting out every day, trying to beat everyone else's prices. Our management fees are very competitive and we certainly are not the most expensive. On the other hand, we charge a fair fee for a tremendous service. For example, we believe that resident selection is very high on the list of priorities. A poor resident can cost you thousands of dollars. We are experienced and committed to get the best resident for you at a rent that will keep that resident. We guarantee our lease fee for 12 months. When ALL fees are considered, we are actually less expensive than most companies around, and we have been in business since 1983.
When we say, "Someone to Count On", we mean it!
