Do you only provide full service management?

What are the first steps?
We will meet with you to discuss your specific owner goals for the property. During this meeting we will obtain information to help identify target monthly rental amounts and will assist you with suggestions on maintenance or improvements prior to tenant occupancy. We will also review the management process and answer your questions to provide peace of mind.
How much are management fees and leasing fees?
For residential properties our monthly management fee is 8% of collected rents and the leasing fee is equal to one months rent for a 12 month lease. Commercial properties are evaluated on a case by case basis for management and leasing fees.
What is the tenant screening process?
Prospective tenants complete a detailed application and are subject to a nationwide criminal and eviction search, credit check, employment and income verification as well as a verification of rental status with their current landlord. Property owners are provided with a detailed breakdown of any application and have final approval for approved tenants.
Should I allow pets in my residential rental?
Barring any issues with pet allergies we suggest considering pets on a case by case basis. Not considering pets eliminates 50%+ of the potential tenant pool. Approved pets would require an increased security deposit.
How are property repairs handled?
Routine repairs are handled at no additional cost. We have relationships with local vendors who provide excellent service in a timely manner at the best possible price. Owners are responsible for certain repairs and tenants are responsible for specific items as well as routine maintenance. Tenants are always 100% responsible for repairs caused by negligence.
What steps need to be taken prior to renting my home?
We will review your property in detail to ensure it is ready for occupancy. As part of this process we determine if a rental license may be required due to location, if the property is subject to lead testing per MDE requirements and we will ensure the property complies with the current laws regarding smoke detectors.
How often will my property be inspected?
We complete a detailed written report of the property which is backed up with photos prior to a tenant taking occupancy. On average we complete property inspections approximately four times annually.
Will I receive regular updates and how much involvement will I have as a Landlord?
We communicate with owners at least once monthly to provide financial updates and distribute funds. Should the property require repairs we will notify you as we become aware of the issue and keep you up to date throughout the repair process. We want our clients to always be fully aware of what is occurring at their property without having to do any heavy lifting.
