How long will it take to rent my property?

Our clients will ultimately decide and approve all tenants.

Why do property management companies charge leasing commissions? How are these different from management fees?

We will always provide you with a full accounting of your monthly income and expenses as well as cash reserve to minimize any payment challenges.

I interviewed several property management firms and found a lot of variation in fees. Why is that?

Property Management companies operate completely independently from one another, and set their fees according to what is consider reasonable returns for their efforts. There are no “standard” fees for particular services. At Personal Property Managers, our emphasis is on quality, convenience and your peace-of-mind.

Before placing a vacant rental unit on the market, do you suggest that I paint, replace a few rooms of carpet, and have the house power washed?

A well-maintained property and or rental unit attracts better tenants, leases in a shorter time, and generally brings higher rents. Well-qualified tenants realize they are sought after and homes that are in good condition offer the best value for their rent dollars. By not having the property in top condition you will experience longer vacancies as well as the problems associated with attracting lesser qualified tenants. With Personal Property Managers, one call does it all ... for quality convenience and peace-of-mind.
