Benefits of Using a Property Management Company

temp-post-image



Managing your own property investment may seem like a good idea, but there is a lot more to it than people realize. Here are some top reasons why hiring a property manager is beneficial.



Finding Tenants and Getting the Right Tenants


Although there are always tenants looking for rentals, finding the right ones can be difficult. Making sure you market in the right places, is not only time-consuming but can be expensive. Property managers are already set up for this so can easily market on several platforms as well as screen tenants.



Getting the most income out of your rental income


While you can do research and easily get a ballpark of what your home could rent for, property managers are equipp...

YEAR END THANKS FROM JENNICE


temp-post-image




As the end of 2020 approaches, I wanted to share my heartfelt message to show my appreciation for so many others. I take such pride in my TCT Team as they navigated through the seemingly every changing obstacles of this year. We were named as an essential business immediately so there was no downtime for our Team. I am always amazed at how they balanced working remotely from home, some even out of their closets, to monitor kids doing online learning while handling emergency calls that are a given when managing investment properties. They fielded calls from worried investors wondering if their tenants were going to pay rent so they could pay their mortgage payment. They proactively sent ou...

2nd Annual Pie Giveaway!

temp-post-image


Our second annual pie giveaway was a success! We just about 50 clients/tenants/vendors come by and pick up a complimentary pie. For those who don't know the story behind the pie giveaway, Jennice Doty has a love for pies and has always wanted to do some sort of event to give them away. Last year was the first year for our pie giveaway and we had a great response.






JENNICE SAYS SOME OF HER BEST MEMORIES GROWING UP WERE MAKING PIES WITH HER MOM. “WHAT AN ACCOMPLISHMENT IT WAS FOR ME TO MAKE A COMPLETE PIE FROM CRUST TO FINISH. IT WAS AS GOOD AS MOM’S PIE! MY SISTER AND I LAUGHED UNTIL WE CRIED WHEN SHE TRIED TO MAKE MOM’S FAMOUS PIE CRUST FOR THE TENTH TIME, EVEN WITH ME GU...

PROPERTY MANAGER MYTHS

#1: A Property Manager Won’t Take Care Of My Home As I Would


A professional property management company cares about your home. They want to protect your investment and help add value if possible. Property managers can bring fresh perspective and knowledge of the area and market and may increase the monthly income.








#2: Renters Will Destroy My Home


It’s hard not to think about all the horror stories of tenants completely destroying rental properties, but in reality that truly doesn’t happen that often. Although it’s impossible to prevent all tenant issues, using a property manager can help find more qualified and responsible tenants.

Thankful for Pies (but mostly you!)


temp-post-image



Who doesn’t love pie?! For years Jennice Doty has asked if we can do some sort of event to give away pies, wasn’t sure why or how, but wanted to do it.







So where does this love for pie come from?











Jennice says some of her best memories growing up were making pies with her Mom. “What an accomplishment it was for me to make a complete pie from crust to finish. It was as good as Mom’s pie! My sister and I laughed until we cried when she tried to make Mom’s famous pie crust for the tenth time, even with me guiding her through it every step of the way, and it tasted like salty cardboard! (She beats me in all other areas of cooking) The day my son told me...

Phoenix leads with the fastest growth in single-family residential rentals

temp-post-image









Although they’re more common in suburban settings, single-family rentals have been abundant in most of the nation’s biggest urban centers. When RENTCafe looked at increases in the number of renter-occupied households by type, they found that in 22 of the 30 largest U.S. cities single-family rentals expanded faster than apartments between 2007 and 2016.












With some of the largest numbers of foreclosures and sharpest drops in home values during the housing bust, the city of Phoenix tops the list of cities with the biggest percentage increase in single-family rentals. According to U.S. Census estimates, the number of houses for rent in Phoenix increased by a whopping 7...

Rental Incentives: Yay or Nay

temp-post-image







Finding new tenants is expensive and time-consuming. The cost of advertising, showing the property, screening potential tenants and more eats into landlords’ profits, especially as the property sits vacant.







So what are the benefits of offering incentives to tenants to renew and/or sign leases?







Keeping good tenants is always the way to go, which is where incentives can come in handy. According to a survey conducted by SofwareAdvice.com, half of males and 41 percent of females aged 26 to 35 say they would be more likely to stay at a rental property if offered an incentive when the lease is nearly up and 52% of renters prefer cash or other types of spendable rewards.

Rental Myths vs. Reality


temp-post-image








1. YOU'RE THROWING MONEY AWAY


WHILE YOU MAY NOT BE GAINING EQUITY IN A HOME, YOU ARE PAYING FOR SOMEWHERE TO CALL HOME, WHICH IS NOT THE EQUIVALENT OF THROWING MONEY IN THE TRASH



2. YOU HAVE NO NEGOTIATING POWER


RENT PRICES AND LENGTHS OF LEASES ARE OFTEN NEGOTIABLE. DON’T BE AFRAID TO ASK THE PROPERTY MANAGER OR LEASING AGENT TO SEE WHAT THE OWNER WOULD CONSIDER.



3. IT'S DIFFICULT TO GET OUT OF A LEASE


ALTHOUGH YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE LEASE, DEPENDING ON THE LEASE TERMS, LEASE BREAK POLICIES CAN DIFFER. RESEARCH YOUR LEASE OR AS THE LANDLORD/PROPERTY MANAGER FOR MORE INFORMATION



4. THE LANDLORD IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL REPAIRS AND REPLACEMENTS


AGAIN, DEPENDING ON THE LEASE TERMS, ...
