Serving All of Nugents Corner
The Nugents Corner area is one that many people love calling home. However, there are just as many people who would love to move into this area and call it home. The problem is that many people on the market these days are not looking to buy a home. They are opting to rent a home instead. After all, renting is less permanent than buying, so it does give people a bit more freedom than being tied down to a mortgage. We truly understand the reasons behind why people would prefer to rent. With this being said, that means that those who own property and have always dreamed of having an investment property in which they earn revenue on each month, can make this a reality.
Let Us Handle this Rental for You
If you own a property in the Nugents Corner and for whatever reason, whether you have owned it for a while and debated being a landlord or if you are looking to move into a bigger home, turning this into a rental home is a great decision. We do suggest that you let us handle this for you though. Are you prepared to devote all the time that it takes to be a landlord? Being a landlord is not easy. It is time consuming in all areas, even once you select a tenant to call this rental property a home. That is where we come in.
We are a full service property management firm that handles several rentals in the Nugents Corner area. Our goal is to do all the hard work for you, so you can reap the benefits of having a rental home in this area. We do it all, so you don’t have to.
Just how do we handle the rentals that we manage? We provide services that are meant to handle any and all situations. Our services include:
We look at your home and give a price point that we believe it should rent at based on the area and other rentals in this area. We also make suggestions on what needs to change before a tenant moves in. For example, if appliances are outdated, we may suggest replacing these as soon as possible.
We then advertise this home to the market. We take a picture of the property to post in traditional methods and online methods to reach the largest audience. We then start feeling the questions that come in about the property and set up appointments with potential tenants who are interested in seeing this house.
Once we start to get applications for the home, we go through these to find the one that is going to be the best fit for your home. We consider their backgrounds including their past rental histories to determine who is going to be a great tenant.
Once the tenant moves into the home, we handle the daily tasks that often come with having a tenant. This may mean collecting rent, or even calling in repair workers for when there is a problem.
Our goal is to make it to where you just see the financial benefits of having a rental instead of all the hard work that goes with this. That is our job.
We know how to market your property.
Finding excellent tenants starts with making sure your property is visible and attractive. We install professional signage, create quality listings, describing your property thoroughly, and take beautiful photographs that showcase your properties highlights. We then list your property on all of the highly trafficked rental websites, including utopiamanagement.com. Our dominant position in the marketing place and years managing rental properties has allowed us to develop a sizable referral database.

Our thorough screening process for potential tenants has consistently kept our eviction rate at less than one percent.
