Let Us Make This Transition Easier
Once you have moved out of your home, the goal is to get your home rented as soon as possible so that you are not losing money on this home. We are a full service property management firm that is located in the Johnson Valley area. We are ready to take over the home and make sure that it is ready for the rental market and advertise this. With our connections in the real estate market, we can quickly find someone that is going to be worthy of renting your home. But, our services do not stop there.
After the house has been advertising and people are wanting to live here, we use our tenant screening services to find the person that is going to be the best fit for your home. We consider numerous elements including their criminal history, their credit scores and even their past rental history. Our goal is to find someone that is going to be the perfect tenant.
We then start handling the day to day issues that can arise with a rental home. Whether this is collecting rent, which we do, or arranging for a repair to be made. We also make sure that the home is being treated right by the tenant. We become the point of contact for the tenant, so that you are not bothered with these small details.
