We have streamlined the management process to ensure we place quality residents, systematize maintenance to be cost effective, and reduce vacancies - all resulting in making you more money:
We work to understand your personal investment goals so we can better align our property management services to fit your needs. Here's an outline to highlight a few ways we are different:
We leverage property inspection software to organize a ton of photos, that we take, room by room of your property. This includes move-in and out inspections, as well as periodic and drive by inspection. You have access to these inspections through the Owner Portal.
The best approach to maintenance is "preventative maintenance". We start by educating the renter and outlining the renter's responsibility to maintain and care for the property. Our vendors are trained to inform us of the condition of the property when they have been dispatched for a repair. Lastly, we find that minor expenditures like doorstops, new filters, testing smoke alarms, adjusting doors can all prevent more expensive repairs down the road.
Thorough screening is crucial to successful Property Management. A credit check is NOT enough. Our company conducts a careful review of the applicants credit, income, tenant history or ownership, criminal background record, and verifiable employment information. We then cross-reference credit, tenant history, income, and the information on the application to qualify or disqualify prospective applicants.
1 South wants the property to look its best and compete with area rentals. We have a minimum rent ready standard to ensure your property is going to rent quickly and to a quality renter who will care for and maintain the property over time. Call us today to request a property-maintenance report that will highlight any "must do" repairs PLUS we'll include "suggested upgrades" that can allow you to achieve a higher rent rate.
Part of how we Earn You More than other property managers, is our laser-focus on renewals. Our residents stay on average 3.6 years in the same property and we always focused on increasing that average. High renewal rates mean happy tenants and less turnover. Less turnover means less vacancy and less turnover expense.
A quick story on renewals - 90 days prior to her lease expiration, we called Mary to schedule a periodic inspection and discuss her lease renewal. Mary informed us she did not plan on renewing. We found out she did not like the tile floors and was searching for a new property that had more carpet. With the owners permission, we purchased a large rug for the living room and Mary continued to lease from us for another 3 years.
