Your Home Deserves the Best.

Pre-Listing Preparation

Market Analysis

We will analyze recently rented properties, active listings, days on the market, and overall market movement to determine an accurate rental rate for your home.

Marketing Campaign

We will professionally photograph your home, create a 3D tour, list it in the MLS and every major website, and actively advertise it online to achieve maximum exposure.

2. Tenant Screening

From Vacant to a Great Tenant in 3 Steps:

Application

Prospective tenants can apply online, or their agent can submit to us a paper application.

Review

We carefully review applications and perform background and reference checks.

Signing

The most qualified applicant signs a lease and pays a security deposit & first month’s rent.

Our Screening Process Checks for Many Things, Including:

Credit History

An applicant’s credit history can say a lot about how responsible a tenant is.

Income

We verify that an applicant has sufficient income to afford the rent.

Employment

We verify employment history with the applicant’s current and previous employer.

Criminal Background

We perform background checks to see if the applicant has had any run-ins with the law.

Prior Evictions

We check for past evictions and verify an applicant’s rental/residence history.

Pets & Smoking

We ensure that an applicant’s needs & habits are in line with each owner’s expectations.

Our Pricing in More Detail:

Finding Great Tenants

The leasing fee is collected once, when we find a tenant for your home.

Initial Lease

The first time we lease your home we collect the equivalent of one month’s rent. This covers all advertising costs, the work we do to market your home (incl. paying the tenant’s agent), screening tenants & preparing the lease.

Lease Renewal

If the lease term is about to expire and the same tenants want to renew their lease, we do not charge a fee to renew the lease.

Re-Lease

If a tenant moves out and we re-market to find new tenants, we collect the equivalent of 75% of one month’s rent. When re-leasing we are able to collect a lower fee than the initial lease because we can reuse the creative assets (photos & tours, etc) we developed the first time.

Caring For Your Home

The management fee is collected monthly while your home is rented.

Management Fee

Our fee is 8% of the monthly rent. This includes maintenance coordination, 24/7 emergency service, rent collection, bill payment, online access to reports, direct deposit of your funds, and at least two inspections per year.

Vacant Property

If your home is vacant while we are advertising to find new tenants, we do not collect a fee.

Additional Services

If you would like us to perform services outside of what is listed on our website, for example: attend HOA meetings, oversee construction or renovations, etc., we bill on an hourly basis or, depending on the scope of work, we can discuss a flat fee.
