Comprehensive Marketing & Advertising
Owning a rental property has many rewards, but also has the hassle of leasing the property, the the day to day management, knowing how much to charge for rent, keeping up with landlord/tenant laws, and knowing which forms to use and where to find them can feel overwhelming. Creating a business relationship with a tenant is difficult when you are the owner. At Realty Pros NW, we believe that worry-free management is the best way to maximize your investment and enjoy rental home ownership.
Professional evaluations 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.
Realty Pros NW conducts a detailed move-in, periodic, and detailed move-out evaluations. Documentation and photographs from these evaluations assist in determining needed maintenance and repairs to maintain your home’s value and avoid costly repairs if left unattended. Evaluations also assist in resolving tenant issues that may potentially arise in the future.
Our goal is to maximize your income and minimize your expenses. To keep track of your income and expenses we use a centralized accounting system. This all-inclusive accounting and reporting system, backed with itemized statements and tax documentation, keeps all your property management financial information organized in one place.
Realty Pros NW provides each property owner a password-protected online account for easy access to financial reports any time you need.
Tenant Screening & Selection
For each day your property is vacant, that’s money out of your pocket. Professional management costs are easily offset by shorter vacancy times. We spend thousands of dollars every month advertising our vacancies to get them filled – faster. Your property is advertised on high traffic rental and classified websites. A professional “For Rent” yard sign adds exposure to capture drive-by prospective tenants. Our experienced leasing agents respond promptly to inquiries and advise prospective tenants on details about the property, and show your home in the best possible light.
Compliant & Strict Evictions
Reliable and Costs Effective Maintenance
Timely Rent Collection
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.
Realty Pros NW makes every effort to keep you informed about your property. A secure online account keeps you updated on all property activity, including vacancies, leasing, maintenance, inspections and financial reports. Whether you live a few blocks from your rental property or hundreds of miles away, you can monitor the activity of your property from the convenience of your computer, 24 hours a day anywhere in the world.
Even with careful placement, there is occasionally a tenant who needs to be evicted. Our staff is extremely knowledgeable in state and local landlord/tenant laws. If the tenant does not pay rent on time or breaches the terms of the lease, we initiate the proper legal steps necessary, in the fastest possible time frame, to minimize your costs and get the property leased again.
Selecting the wrong tenant can quickly cost you what you save by managing a property yourself. Every tenant application is evaluated based on credit, criminal background, sex offender registry (where allowed by law), employment verification and residency/rental history. Our thorough screening complies with all applicable laws, including Fair Housing and Fair Credit Reporting Act.
When we find a qualified tenant, we will schedule a lease signing session and a move-in condition evaluation after approval.
Nothing affects your cash flow more than late or missing rent payments. We collect the rent every month and deposit it into your account expeditiously. Our collection processes are professional but tough, and we are extremely diligent in collecting rent through a systematic, timely process.
Tenants are offered a variety of ways to pay rent and incentives for paying rent on time, so you can get your money as quickly as possible. In addition, we treat each tenant respectfully and fairly, as a positive relationship with a tenant leads to timely rent payments as well as better care for your property.
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.
Realty Pros NW 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 have come to be expected.
We know it is not easy to hand over your keys to the home you love but neither is the management of that property. Let us take the worry away by marketing and advertising your property, finding and securing a qualified tenant, preparing the lease to protect you, collecting rent, repair and maintenance, inspection of the property and providing an excellent accounting ledger.
