Proper marketing of rental properties is extremely important because every day your property sits vacant, you are losing money.
In today's world 99% of the properties being rented start with an online search. People simply jump on google, or another website and go about their searches. That is why it’s so important for us to play ball with these big websites and get your properties on them.
Rather than just say “we advertise on a bunch of websites”, let us take a moment to explain how it actually works from an insider’s view.
The MLS allows "Realtors" to list all properties for rent or sale which allows other realtors to see the information they need for their clients. The problem is potential renters don’t have access to it, so only those working with a rental agent would be able to see your property.
These companies are incredibly useful because they syndicate the properties info out to all the big rental websites, such as Trulia, Hotpads, Apartments.com, Zillow, and about 100 others.
This is our own in-house list of tenants we have collected over time. When one of our properties comes up for rent, or you give us yours to manage, we send the properties to this group.
There is a growing trend for potential tenants to utilize social media for their property searches. We market your property on Facebook, Instagram, and You Tube. The average American spends 80% of their internet time on social media and your property will be there for them to see.
There are many pieces to the property management puzzle but this is the most important. Tenant applications are processed online only after they have viewed the property and have been prescreened.
We verify income and employment and require prospective tenants make 2.5x the monthly rent We contact previous landlords/management companies for rental history Using this process, our eviction rate is under .1%.
One of the most difficult elements of being a Landlord is knowing how your property is being treated.
This process has proven to be the most effective and allows our clients to rest easy knowing we play a fair game in making sure damages are properly deducted, so their property can turn quickly and rent again.
Security deposit amounts are typically equal to the rental amount. All security deposits are handled following Florida State Law.
One of the biggest concerns we hear from new owners is how poorly their old PM handled maintenance. Maintenance is normally where property owners get ripped off the most. Here’s some easy ways you can be ripped off without you knowing:
Sadly, we see this stuff happen quite a bit. That’s why we’re set up with transparency.
We have a reputation of being easy to work with and paying our vendors quickly. The savings are always passed directly to you.
Many new customers tell us how their old companies were inconsistent with disbursing their rent checks. To us, it’s unacceptable.
That’s why we’ve devised a system that guarantees you’re paid on or before the 15th of the month (as long as your tenant pays on time). This is attributed to our software and ability to clear checks quickly and efficiently.
First off, we don’t charge you anything unless your property is rented. If you’re not making money, we aren't either. Our fees are structured based on several factors: amount of properties you have, their location, and their quality.
This is it, no hidden fees or expenses!
Monthly Management: 10% of the monthly rent. This fee is reduced as property owners allow us to manage more of their properties.
Tenant placement/Acquisition: this ranges from half to a full month’s rent. We look at the property’s location and rental amount to determine this. The idea is if you have a really high-end rental, let’s say it brings in $2,000 a month, charging a full month’s rent would be unfair. The opposite holds true for lower end rentals.
Maintenance coordination: this is actually pretty nifty, we don't charge anything nor do we markup any invoices. This saves you money. Seems strange, right? Our maintenance coordination fee (MCF) is 0%. As investors we understand that saving on expenses is key to cashflow and we never liked being "nickeled and dimed".
Renewal: it’s important to note that we don't charge anything here either. When a tenant is first placed, we charge an acquisition fee. Why don't we charge this fee? There are several reasons - the tenant is already in place, there isn't any marketing needed, and we do not have to research the tenant. At the end of their lease, if they decide to renew and stay, GREAT! We all win!
The good news is that when we place a tenant it is a rare occasion that we have to evict a tenant. But, not surprisingly, this is the most asked question that we get. We try to find win/win scenarios to have the tenant leave without going through the eviction process to save you time and money.
Our eviction rate is under .1% per year, meaning there are only a handful between all the cities we manage. In the rare case an eviction occurs, we handle the entire process for you. Many times, we hear new clients telling us stories of traveling to Florida just to handle an eviction and incur all the expenses with it.
