Think it’s easier to manage a rental property yourself instead of a property management company? Think again! Are you new to rental property management? If so, you might not realize all the time, effort, and expense it takes. You don’t want to be that property owner who has negative reviews on “ratemylandlord.com.”
How can you balance your own full time job, a rental house, and your family?
At Real Property Management Southern Connecticut, we go above and beyond what other property management companies in New Haven offer. We have over 25 years of experience in property management. Our goal is to help our clients create and maintain value in their investments. Here’s why you should partner with the most consistent property management company in New Haven.
You’ll Always Have Tenants with our Quick Leasing Process
Have zero tenants interested in leasing your great rental home? Sometimes inexperienced landlords can set the rental rate too high, driving away prospective renters. Other times you’ll set the rent too low, causing people to question, “What’s wrong with that house?” and resulting in loss of profits for you. Our team of professionals have the local expertise and knowledge to set a competitive but fair market rental rate. We’ll market your property extensively on several popular websites, such as apartments.com. We have a wonderful online system for potential tenants to schedule viewings. Our expert leasing agents will also show the home in person so you don’t have to! This will save you time and money and decrease the number of days that your property sits vacant. We will even provide you with a rent ready checklist!
We Sort Out Tenants with Consistent Effective Screening Methods
Most property management companies in New Haven will tell you that they screen tenants before leasing. However, other companies don’t have the same strict, proven screening methods that we do. We thoroughly screen all potential tenants over the age of 18. In addition, we include background and criminal checks, employment and income verification, rental history checks, and sex offender screening. We do all this while keeping in compliance with the Fair Housing Act and avoiding discrimination. At Real Property Management Southern Connecticut, we want to find you that golden tenant. Ideally one who will reliably pay their rent on time and not annoy the neighbors.
We Offer 24-7, 365 Peace of Mind Maintenance Coordination
One of the biggest drawbacks to becoming a landlord is knowing that you’re going to be dealing with tenant maintenance emergencies at your rental property. If your rental home is less than ten years old, you might get lucky and only have to deal with cosmetic issues, but units and homes older than that can experience serious maintenance problems like a broken A/C unit. You may not have the proper training and background to fix any or all of the maintenance headaches around the home, and you really shouldn’t have to.
With Real Property Management Southern Connecticut, not only do we answer every maintenance phone call with our 24/7 live person hotline, but we’ll dispatch a maintenance professional to the property who has the training and skills to get the job done effectively and quickly. Less time worrying about maintenance emergencies means you’ll have more free time to enjoy the profits of your investment.
Our Regular Property Inspections Keep Your Home’s Value High
One of the most common mistakes new landlords make is to not inspect their rental property frequently enough. Other property management companies in New Haven may advise you to not worry about anything until a tenant points an issue out, but we believe that’s just not smart.
We schedule regular property inspections throughout the year. These include seasonal maintenance, lease compliance checks, and safety inspections to catch small problems before they become an expensive fix.
For example, your tenant may not tell you that the ice maker in the freezer is broken, worried that they’ll be blamed and have to pay out of pocket for the repair. Failure to catch a simple issue like this can turn into a big problem if not corrected. Water can begin to leak out of the bottom of the refrigerator affecting your flooring, and ice can start to build up in the back of the freezer, causing the fridge to not cool food properly. A regular property inspection would catch an issue like this whether or not the tenant told you about it, and fix it as soon as possible before the whole fridge needs to be replaced. Regular property inspections can save you time, money, and hassle.
We Provide In-House Legal Counsel and Regulation Expertise
It’s impossible for landlords to keep up with all the landlord-tenant laws and regulations out there. We help you avoid court costs and fines for violations. Our in-house legal team ensures your property meets all code regulations, habitability laws, and HOA Requirements. Evicting a tenant can be a time-consuming costly process. We’ll talk to you about effective strategies for dealing with late rental payments. These strategies can help negate the cost of eviction. Our local expertise has helped landlords for over 25 years stay compliant so they can focus on more important things. Inquire about our, eviction protection plan!
