What Does a Beaufort Property Management Company Do for Landlords?
Every property management company provides a different level of services and customer care. We are a full-service management company which means we handle everything for our clients from start to finish. Today, we’re telling you what we do for our landlords and what you should expect from a Beaufort property management company.
Beaufort Marketing and Leasing Services
The first thing we’ll do as your Beaufort area property management company is evaluate your property and make sure it’s ready for the rental market. We’ll analyze the competition and recommend a price that’s designed to earn you as much rental income as possible while minimizing your vacancy time. Then, we’ll advertise your home online. We use all of the popular rental sites, including Trulia, HotPads, and others. We also use a call service available after hours and on the weekends so prospective tenants can call and learn more about the property and schedule a showing. They can also book showings 24 hours a day through our website.
Once we have applications from interested tenants, we conduct a thorough tenant screening. We will check credit and criminal histories, verify employment and income, and talk to former landlords to get an idea of how these applicants behave in rental properties. As soon as we qualify a tenant, we coordinate the move-in process, including the lease signing and the collection of the security deposit.
Maintaining Beaufort Rental Properties
One of the most important services we provide for both owners and tenants is maintenance. You’re required to provide a safe, habitable, and well-maintained home for your tenants. We help you do this by responding to all routine and emergency maintenance needs. We work with a qualified network of preferred vendors who are licensed, insured, and affordable. You can feel good about getting a good price for both simple repairs and complex projects. Working with a property management company allows you to access better maintenance prices. Our economy of scale allows us to negotiate discounted prices on everything from plumbing to cleaning services. We pass those savings on to you.
Homeowners are also notified for every repair through our repair coordination software, and you can expect us to respond to emergencies at any time. We are your tenant’s contact if something goes wrong in the middle of the night or over the weekend. It’s important to respond to emergencies right away to ensure that the tenants are safe and your property doesn’t incur additional damage.
Communication and Protection
We communicate effectively with you, your tenants, and the vendors who help us take care of your property. You can expect us to be accessible, available, and responsive. We’ll answer your phone calls and return your messages promptly. You can use your online portal to follow rent payments, maintenance invoices, and accounting reports.
Our team is here to protect your investment and your bottom line. We require all of our residents to have renter’s insurance, which provides an extra layer of protection for you and your property. We also stay up to date on all the federal, state, and local laws that pertain to landlords and rental properties.
If you have any questions about the owner/property manager relationship, please don’t hesitate to contact us at Beaufort Rentals. We’d be happy to tell you more about our services.
