Comprehensive Marketing & Advertising
Each and every day your property is vacant takes money out of your pocket.
Data indicates that landlords generally pay about 3 months of rent in turnover costs. We advertise all vacancies on our website as well as dozens of other syndicated platforms, meaning higher traffic, more qualified applicants, and shorter vacancies. A professional “For Rent” yard sign adds exposure to attract potential drive-by tenants. In short, we invest thousands of dollars every month advertising our vacancies to get them filled – FASTER.
Our experienced leasing agents respond promptly to inquiries and advise on property details, creating a positive and attractive experience for future tenants.
Prior to listing your properties, our team will help you:
- Set a competitive monthly rent rate based on a comprehensive analysis (location, condition, upgrades, access to transportation, market rates, etc.)
- Get your property rent-ready, providing recommendations and guidance on how to attract the best tenants.
Thorough Tenant Screening & Selection
Selecting the wrong tenant can quickly cost you all the profit you would otherwise be earning from your investment property.
The money pit a bad tenant creates can often include late rent, non-payment of rent, un-ending phone calls, property damage, and eviction. At Real Property Management, we will help you attract high quality tenants and avoid all of those hassles and headaches with your northern Utah property.
Every tenant application is evaluated based on credit history, criminal background, sex offender registry (where allowed by law), employment verification and residency/rental history. Note: Our screening processes comply with all applicable laws, including Fair Housing and Fair Credit Reporting Act.
When we find a qualified tenant interested in your property, we will schedule a lease signing session and a move-in condition evaluation after approval.
Your leasing agent manages the lease signing with the approved tenant, using our professionally prepared lease, and ensures that all proper contracts are executed correctly. At the same time, rents, deposits and any fees are collected in accordance with local legal and financial regulations, and recorded in your online account. We also provide professional tenant education at lease signing.
Finally, the leasing agent and approved tenant conduct a walk-through to document conditions. This important walk-through assists in accurately assessing any changes in conditions when the tenant moves out.
Timely Rent Collection
Nothing affects your cash flow more than late or missing rent payments.
Our process for collecting monthly rent will put your mind at ease. Collecting rent on time, every month, takes the uncertainty out of your cash flow situation. We treat all tenants fairly and with respect. Nurturing a positive relationship with our tenants encourages timely payments and better care of your property. Owner payments are electronically deposited it into your account on a reliable schedule, every month.
Our collection processes are professional yet stringent. Tenants can utilize a variety of convenient payment methods. We incentivize systematic and timely tenant payments so they can avoid penalties, which gets you paid – ON TIME.
Professional inspections of your property both inside and out are beneficial to ensure tenants are complying with the terms of their lease and to assess property conditions.
Local Real Property Management offices typically conduct move-in, periodic, and move-out inspections. Documentation and photographs from these inspections assist in determining needed maintenance and repairs to maintain your home’s value and avoid costly repairs if left unattended.
Cost-Effective, Reliable Maintenance
Maintenance is a necessary expense in owning a rental property, and the return on your investment can be significantly impacted without timely, cost-effective repairs and upkeep. When handled by us, you’ll save time and money and ensure repairs are completed in a professional manner, by trustworthy maintenance personnel.
Each Real Property Management office has an extensive network of contractors, vendors and in-house staff to handle property maintenance and repair work. In addition, our exclusive partnerships with national and local vendors provide the professional level of service to our clients and customers that has come to be expected.
Strict and Compliant Evictions
Evictions are painful for everyone. Even with careful placement, there are occasional circumstances when eviction is necessary.
Tenants that do not pay rent on time or breach the terms of the lease in another way are vulnerable, especially if they do not remedy the situation immediately. We have standard procedures for working through these challenges, however if those efforts are unsuccessful, we initiate the legal process to minimize costs and get the property leased to a new tenant.
Our team is knowledgeable in state and local landlord law and we partner with highly experienced attorneys to ensure that the eviction is completed quickly and in compliance with regulatory requirements.
We manage your properties like a business, because that’s what it is, and book-keeping is no exception.
Our goal is to maximize your income and minimize your expenses. All of your property related transactions are managed by our accounting team in our centralized system. Our all-inclusive accounting system creates itemized statements and tax documentation keeping your investment portfolio financial information organized, easy to access, and simple to review.
All of our property owners and real estate investors receive a password protected online account so you can access your financial reports as often as you’d like.
