Property Management Resources

Local property management companies have up-to-the-minute knowledge of local market trends. This knowledge ensures that the owner is getting the best possible return on their investment, and that the tenants are paying a fair price.

A partial list of services provided by property managers includes:
advertising for and screening applicants, contract setup, collecting rents, regularly scheduled maintenance and inspections and if need be, performing evictions. Some companies will also pay expenses such as loan payments, home owners dues, insurance and maintenance costs as well as property taxes.

  • 3 bedrooms: $1,500 – $2,000
