Tenant Screening

Choosing the right tenant is the single most important aspect of property management that will ensure your rental property is a successful investment. The right tenant will pay the rent on time every month like clockwork while properly maintaining your property and keeping the expenses low. The opposite can be said about a bad tenant - racking up thousands of dollars in delinquency, damaging the property, and putting you at risk of having to carry out an eviction. This is exactly why it’s so important to have a diligent and thorough screening process.Over the years, we’ve screened thousands applicants and created an industry leading in-house screening process. Our thorough screening process complies with all applicable laws (including Fair Credit Reporting Act and Fair Housing) to prevent any liability on the landlord’s behalf. 

Our monthly property management fee is based on the unit’s rent amount. We don’t charge any type of minimum management fee during vacancy so therefore you’re only paying while the property is occupied!
