Do you charge a marketing, advertising or other hidden fees?
Who will do repairs on my property?
We work with several good, reliable & reasonable vendors for maintenance on our properties. If you have a preferred vendor, we are happy to work with them too!
Will I receive copies of all vendor invoices with my my monthly statements?
Do you mark up vendor performed work orders?
Do you handle Section 8?
No, we have managed Section 8 in the past. Our decision to stop was based on actual experiences where the HACSB has not abided by their own published rules. HACSB is the epitome of a government organization gone bad.
Do you do periodic inspections?
Yes, we do an interior safety inspection after 6 months included in the original placement fee. If you want additional inspections, we charge $65.
Do charge for evictions?
We do not charge for our portion of the eviction process however the 3rd party servicer we use does charge for filing court papers and working the case once it is filed with the court.
When do owner payments/statements go out?
We send out all statements on the 15th of the month. All ACH payments arrive on the next business day after the 15th of the month.
The 15th seems a long time to hold payments. Why is that?
Since we allow tenant payments online and some properties have a 5 day grace period, a tenant could make an online payment on the 5th and then it would take 9 days to clear the ACH system. We also reconcile our books and make sure all invoices are correct and paid.
What’s the process to sign up?
We need a signed Property Management Agreement and Owner Onboard Packet completed by the owner or their designated agent. We collect $300 of the placement fee up front for the initial tenant placement. Since we only require a 30-day notice to terminate the management contract, we keep the $300 as an early termination fee if you cancel before we place a tenant. This covers our costs associated with setting you up in our system & marketing the property.
