How to Reap the Benefits Without the Commitment
For those who understand the benefits of having a rental property, yet they do not want to be a landlord, they can contact us. We are a full-service property management service that handles the role of landlord for you. When we handle the role of landlord, then you can sit back and simply relax. It is easier for you, as you do not have to handle the stress and annoyance that often goes with being a landlord.
What services do we offer that allows you to simply sit back? For one, we offer marketing and advertising services to ensure that your rental is advertised to the right market. We want to find you the best tenant possible. Which then brings us to our tenant screening services. We look at the past rental history, credit reports and the background checks of those who are looking to move into your home to find the best possible choice.
From there, we handle the daily issues that can arise with a rental home. We arrange for repairs to be made, for daily maintenance to take place and we then handle the accounting side of the rental property. The idea is that we do it for you, so you don’t have to take on this challenge.
