Comprehensive Marketing & Advertising
Each and every day your property is vacant takes money out of your pocket. Data indicates that landlords generally pay about 3 months of rent in turnover costs. We advertise all vacancies on our website as well as dozens of other syndicated platforms, meaning higher traffic, more qualified applicants, and shorter vacancies. A professional “For Rent” yard sign adds exposure to attract potential drive-by tenants. In short, we invest thousands of dollars every month advertising our vacancies to get them filled – FASTER.
Our experienced leasing agents respond promptly to inquiries and advise on property details, creating a positive and attractive experience for future tenants.
Prior to listing your properties, our team will help you:
- Set a competitive monthly rent rate based on a comprehensive analysis (location, condition, upgrades, access to transportation, market rates, etc.)
- Get your property rent-ready, providing recommendations and guidance on how to attract the best tenants
Thorough Tenant Screening & Selection
Selecting the wrong tenant can quickly cost you all the profit you would otherwise be earning from your investment property.
The money pit a bad tenant creates can often include late rent, non-payment of rent, un-ending phone calls, property damage, and eviction. At Real Property Management, we will help you attract high quality tenants and avoid all of those hassles and headaches with your Utah County property.
Every tenant application is evaluated based on credit history, criminal background, sex offender registry (where allowed by law), employment verification and residency/rental history. Note: Our screening processes comply with all applicable laws, including Fair Housing and Fair Credit Reporting Act.
When we find a qualified tenant interested in your property, we will schedule a lease signing session and a move-in condition evaluation after approval.
Attracting the highest quality tenants is only the first step. Your leasing agent manages the lease signing with the approved tenant, using our professionally prepared lease agreement, and ensures that all contracts are executed correctly. Rent, deposits, and any other relevant fees are collected and recorded in your online account in compliance with legal and financial regulatory requirements.
We know that starting off on the right foot is critical to building a positive rental experience. Tenants who have a clear understanding of the lease requirements tend to be more satisfied with the property and renew their lease the following year, so we provide professional tenant education at the time of lease signing.
Finally, the leasing agent and approved tenant conduct a property walk-through to document conditions prior to move-in. This documentation helps prevent future disagreements when assessing the property when the tenant moves out.
Timely Rent Collection
Nothing affects your cash flow more than late or missing rent payments. We collect the rent every month and deposit it into your account expeditiously. Our collection processes are professional but tough, and we are extremely diligent in collecting rent through a systematic, timely process.
Tenants are offered a variety of ways to pay rent and incentives for paying rent on time, so you can get your money as quickly as possible. In addition, we treat each tenant respectfully and fairly, as a positive relationship with a tenant leads to timely rent payments as well as better care for your property.
Professional evaluations of your property both inside and out are beneficial to ensure tenants are complying with the terms of their lease and to assess property conditions.
Real Property Management Utah County typically conducts move-in, periodic, and move-out evaluations. Documentation and photographs from these evaluations assist in determining needed maintenance and repairs to maintain your home’s value and avoid costly repairs if left unattended. Evaluations also assist in resolving tenant issues that may potentially arise in the future.
Cost-Effective, Reliable Maintenance
Maintenance is a necessary expense in owning a rental property, and the return on your investment can be significantly impacted without timely, cost-effective repairs and upkeep. When handled by us, you’ll save time and money and ensure repairs are completed in a professional manner, by trustworthy maintenance personnel.
Real Property Management Utah County has an extensive network of contractors, vendors and in-house staff to handle property maintenance and repair work. In addition, our exclusive partnerships with national and local vendors provide the professional level of service to our clients and customers that have come to be expected.
Strict and Compliant Evictions
Evictions are painful for everyone. Even with careful placement, there are occasional circumstances when eviction is necessary.
Tenants that do not pay rent on time or breach the terms of the lease in another way are vulnerable. We have standard procedures for working through these challenges, however if those efforts are unsuccessful, we initiate the legal process to minimize costs and get the property leased to a new tenant.
Our team is knowledgeable in state and local landlord law and we partner with highly experienced attorneys to ensure that the eviction is completed quickly and in compliance with regulatory requirements.
Property owners who enroll in our eviction protection plan do pay not any additional eviction fees. Those costs are covered by the local RPM office.
Our goal is to maximize your income and minimize your expenses. To keep track of your income and expenses we use a centralized accounting system. This all-inclusive accounting and reporting system, backed with itemized statements and tax documentation, keeps all your property management financial information organized in one place.
Real Property Management Utah County provides each property owner a password-protected online account for easy access to financial reports any time you need.
