Our in-house maintenance department dispatches service vendors for routine maintenance. Maintenance dispatchers are on call during after-hours, weekends and holidays for maintenance emergencies.
Tenant applications are processed electronically and include credit, criminal, sex offender and past eviction background searches. Our scoring and tenant recommendation policies are built on industry standards and are followed to ultimately accept or decline prospective tenants.
We advertise listings aggressively online through our website, local Multiple Listing Service (MLS), and multiple listing-syndication sites that blast your listing across the internet. We also advertise on our exclusive showing appointment website. On the ground, we place For Rent signs at the properties.
There are no hidden fees or monies due upfront. If your property is rented within 1 – 60 days of listing the rate is 10%, 60 – 120 days the rate is 9%, 121 days or longer the rate is 8%. Discounted monthly rates are offered at the following: (a) Clients with 2 or 3 properties start at a rate of 9% (not 10%) per month which can respectively decrease to 8% per month if the vacancy time exceeds 121 days or longer for a specific property. (b) Clients with 4 properties or more receive a flat rate of 8% per month.
The cost associated with advertising your property is recouped from the Finder’s Fee (also known as a Leasing Fee) which is assessed at the beginning of the lease term and is equal to 50% of one months rent. Additionally, there is a one time $100 set-up charge per property
It is recommended that a property owner be pet friendly where possible. Our standard pet fee to charge the tenant is $250.00 for up to two (2) pets. $150.00 is non-refundable (our firm uses this money for a pet cleaning, if required) and the remaining $100.00 is refundable to the tenant if pet damages do not exceed the non-refundable portion. Please note that by not accepting or considering pets you may be limiting your rental audience. Dog breeds considered aggressive are restricted. No smoking is allowed at any of our managed properties.
