Why Use a Property Manager?
Property management is a business that requires efficiency and skill. One misstep can lead to thousands in damages or vacancy. Having the right tools to do the job are what can determine success or failure as a landlord. Property managers, like The Rent Experts have the tools to increase the likelihood of success. While nothing in investing is guaranteed, being able to properly screen tenants can make all the difference in the world. The Rent Experts screens tenants with in depth credit reporting, criminal background and eviction history.
On applications, previous addresses are verified using an online search system. References and landlords are called and verification of employment is implemented. Choosing a tenant is half the battle. Yet, this is still just one reason to use a property manager.
Solid property inspections using photographs and software help insure you know the condition of the property when the tenant moves in. This can assist with keeping deposits and placing charges in the event of damages. Another great system that The Rent Experts offers is an online payment portal. Tenants can pay rent with credit cards, debit cards, and checks online. In addition, we have a drop off location for rent and can autodraft. Payments can be sent to property owners electronically or by check like clockwork.
There are many other reasons to use a property manager. Correct forms and legal procedures being followed, rental knowledge of the market, local knowledge of Mobile and Baldwin County and more.
