Assessment: Before any property is listed for rent, we work with the owner to determine requirements and expectations for each property and lease. We inspect and note properties’ conditions, recommend necessary repairs and cosmetic touch-ups, and research the market to recommend monthly rent charges for each property.
Advertising & Marketing: We use a combination of print, property signage/flyers, internet, and social media to advertise your rental property to maximize its exposure and get your property rented as quickly as possible.
Showing Your Property: A licensed realtor from Bradford Real Estate will schedule and show your property in a timely and professional manner and will be present at all showings.
Tenant Screening: We adhere to strict tenant qualification guidelines. We review employment, credit and rental histories, and conduct background and criminal checks.
Administration and Accounting: We administer each lease, arranging for and paying vendors/contractors as necessary, tracking property expenses, offering monthly owner draws via automatic payments or check, and providing detailed property statements upon request. We use a secure, web-based property management system which enables owners to access property management details from wherever you have Internet access.
Rent Collection: Tenants can elect to pay their monthly rent electronically or by check.
Property Inspection: At every move-in and move-out, we document property condition with photos or video, and complete a detailed property review sheet with the tenant.
Maintenance Service: Tenants can call us at any time with a maintenance request. We have established professional relationships with reliable, reputable contractors who perform any necessary work in a timely and efficient manner.
Move In/Out Coordination: We personally meet the tenant on both move-in and move-out days to answer any questions.
Re-sale: We know the properties we manage, the neighborhoods they are in, and real estate market dynamics very well. We would be happy to market and sell your investment property when it’s time.
We collect 50% of the first month’s rent as our commission on a new lease. This covers all advertising, candidate screening and credit/background checks, property showings, and executed contract paperwork. Each month afterwards, we collect a flat rate management fee of 10% of the property rent which covers our time and effort handing all tenant questions or issues. We manage your property, collect the rent, deal with all issues, and send you the net rent proceeds.
If your tenant wants to continue renting your property after the lease ends, we will sign a new lease agreement with them for a small fee to you, the owner, of $100. You do not have to pay 50% of one month’s rent commission if the tenant is continuing the lease at the same address.
Every property is unique, so please contact us to discuss your needs and fee options.
