Why Property Management?
Because You Have More Important Things To Do!
As an AustinHomeSource Property Management client you will also receive the following services:
Aside from placing the property in the MLS, and an electronic LockBox which we use to track showings- we will immediately place the property on the internet mentioning the details which will most effectively entice a prospective renter. AustinHomeSource also provides a professional “For Rent” sign that we place at your rental property. We encourage showings not just by Realtors, but invite all licensed locators to show our available properties by sending out weekly emails & faxes to the top agents in the area.
We will thoroughly screen all applicants to your property. We screen tenants by pulling a credit report, verifying their employment as well as their income, and we also interview their last landlord to verify that this prospective tenant was a good tenant and left their last rental property in good standing. Yes, we screen our prospective tenants very thoroughly, but it is as important to AustinHomeSource as it is to you that we place good people into your investment property. The early personal contact that a tenant receives from AustinHomeSource establishes a good dependable relationship.
We will answer the renter’s maintenance complaints and arrange for repair work. Our tenants have access to an online portal to request maintenance or repairs. Additionally, there is 24-hour emergency number they can contact if a problem should arise in the middle of the night. This adds security to the tenant as well as you the investor that we are watching after your property 24 hours a day 7 days a week. That is comforting all by itself, as maintaining your property helps ensure its value in the long term. To help your bottom line in the short term – We do NOT have on-site maintenance staff, waiting around for something to break at your property. When maintenance issues do arise, we can utilize one of the trusted contractors we have developed relationships with over the years, or use the contractor that You choose. So if there are contractors that you have a relationship with, and you would like to use, just let us know and we will contact them.
We do not “upcharge” you for repairs, or use your maintenance and repairs as a profit center as many property managers do.
One of the most costly aspects of investment properties is tenant turnover. Prior to a tenant moving into a property we conduct a walk through inspection on that property. This way we have on record the condition that the property was in when a tenant moves in. When that tenant leaves we use the same report to check them out. This way there is no confusion on the condition of the property after a tenant leaves.
More to the point- we strive to maintain a good rapport with your renter and provide an excellent place for them to live, so that when it comes time for renewal, they are more likely to stay. (Tenant turnover is usually one of the mostly costly events for a property owner- so we try to keep it to a minimum by keeping your good renters in place for as long as possible.)
Each month you will receive a detailed statement on your property. These statements are easy to read and understand. The statement will break down the month’s activity on your investment property. It will show rent collected, management fees deducted, itemized maintenance, and finally your net dollar amount. We also will give you access to our online portal where all of your statement and documents related to your property are available to you at the touch of a button. If you like to keep records “old school”, AustinHomeSource can also send you a three ring, tabbed binder. This binder is set up for you to organize your statements and maintenance receipts for the entire year. This way your paperwork is organized for your accountant.
Every real-estate investor knows two things: 1) Owning rental property can be a good business with great returns. 2) It can also cause you a ton of grief. Owning rental property should be an enjoyable venture. Why not let a professional management company help you make owning rental properties a relatively trouble free investment?
Our full service property management team takes the head-aches out of owning rental property. We offer “flat fee” pricing, making it easier to control at least one cost relating to your real estate investment(typically $64-$84 per month for a single unit, to as low as $54 per month for 8 or more units).
