Choosing a property manager is one of the best investments you can make in the success of your portfolio. When you hire professional property management, Everett property owners, your income grows without you doing the work! However, not just "any" property manager is the best fit for your investments.
If you enjoy the profits from your rental property, the right property manager can help you enjoy more profits from your current properties—and your next properties! Here's how Real Property Associates serves the Everett area and helps property owners boost their bottom lines.
Marketing your properties isn't as simple as posting a "for rent" notice online and placing a sign in the yard. Everett is a competitive rental market! If you don't know how to make your property stand out from the competition, you risk months of vacancy and lost rent.
Our comprehensive marketing and leasing program ensures the maximum exposure of your rental. It also gives us the ability to choose the best possible renter at market rates. Marketing your property is not merely a way to find "a" resident for your rental—it's the necessary process of choosing the best renter to pay the best rental rate throughout their lease term.
It Starts With a Professional Listing
You'll never find the right residents if your property listing doesn't attract a quality selection of potential renters. From the description to the professional photos, your property's listing has to "sell" your property to your ideal next resident.
Your listing has to catch the eye of a renter and encourage them to apply for your property. It's most than a list of details. When we create a compelling listing, it includes:
- Your property's stats: square footage, number of rooms, and other property details.
- Your property's story: what makes your rental the best place to live for renters in Everett?
- Your property's status: nearby attraction, neighborhood amenities, and other lifestyle information.
You can have the best property in the neighborhood—but without the right listing and property marketing, you'll attract the wrong renters or deal with an empty property. Too many months without rent means you lose significant income!
We Show Off
We don't just "show" your property; we show it off! Our team conducts all showings by licensed real estate professionals—even during evenings and weekends! When social distancing requires different practices to show your property, we accommodate potential residents with the safest protocols to showcase your property.
Choosing the best residents for your property is easier when you have a team to market your rental and screen your new residents professionally.
Professional Resident Management
That's right! We don't "choose" a resident. We screen and select the best resident for your Everett rental property!
When it comes to placing a stranger in your rental, we don't want that new resident to truly be a stranger. We put each applicant through a careful screening process to learn as much as we can (within the law) before selecting the best resident for your property.
Screening Is Never an Option
Choosing the wrong resident can be a more expensive problem than dealing with an empty property for another month. Bad residents refuse to pay the rent, cause property damage, and can be costly to remove from a rental after they move in.
We never skip the screening step—no matter how good a potential resident looks on paper or sounds in conversation. Every applicant goes through our screening process. Then we compare what we find to the preset criteria we develop with our property owners for their properties.
Our approach to property management, Everett landlords, includes a detailed screening process 100% of the time. We investigate:
- Employment and income verification
- Credit history
- Criminal history, including sex offender checks
- Prior rental history
- Reference check
We also require a valid ID before we begin the process. It's critical to know who we place in your home before we allow a new resident into your property. While we follow all regulations according to fair housing and anti-discrimination laws, we leave no detail behind when researching a potential resident for your property.
We Encourage Good Residents to Stay
A thorough screening process will consistently produce quality residents! When we place excellent residents, we want them to stay in your property beyond one lease term. Property owners make more money when residents renew, rather than going through the screening process every time a lease term ends.
You save money when you don't need to manage another round of turnover for your property. You don't risk a month (or more) of vacancy until we can place another excellent resident. Plus, many times, we can increase the rent during a renewal.
You Make More Money
When it's time for a resident to renew, we review the rent and compare it to the market. If the market supports an incremental increase, we include that higher rate when sending renewal notices to residents.
Most residents will adjust to a slightly higher monthly rent amount when it's time to renew a lease. If property owners offer excellent property management and maintenance services, Everett residents will often choose to stay for another lease term rather than spend the time and money looking for a new place to live—even when the renewal includes a small increase to the rent.
On-Time Rent Collection
Finding the right resident is excellent, but you don't make money until they start paying rent! On-time monthly rent collection helps property investors receive steady income every month.
We do our best to make it easy for residents to pay the rent. Using an online payment system and our late rent enforcement protocols helps us reduce the number of delayed or nonpayments. When we collect the rent on time, our property owners benefit from on-time payments, too!
