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, ...

Restricted Breeds - A Thing of the Past

temp-post-image



About two years ago Arizona became the 20th state to completely do away with breed-specific legislation - laws that ban or otherwise regulate dogs by breed.



However, HOA’s and insurance requirements can vary.


Some other helpful information:




  • The law in Arizona (and most other states) says that when a dog bites,




The dog is always GUILTY, even if he was provoked by someone or something





  • Renters insurance carried by the tenant, usually covers dog bite lawsuits







  • The Landlord’s insurance policy usually protects the landlord when a tenant’s dog bites. In most cases, the landlord is not the responsible party, and the insurance pays for lawyers to get Landlord removed from any lawsuits....

How Often To Inspect?

temp-post-image




As a property manager it’s a good idea to inspect properties regularly.



When should you inspect?




  • Move In - done before a new lease begins, ensures all previous work has been completed and property is move in ready. Then again by the tenant once they move in to notate the condition of the property when the moved in.




  • Annual - done with a tenant in place to note the condition of the property; one, two or even three times a year is normal.




  • Move Out - accesses the overall condition once a tenant moves out




Remember a quick 5 minute inspection can prevent major expenses down the road.


This is a great time to see potentially unreported issues and point them out and advise the tenant these are th...
