By joining RPM you are getting a complete property management company. We run our business out of a professional office building. Don’t be fooled! Some property managers run their business out of their homes. This means that you will most likely get an answering machine when you call them. Don’t feel bad, their tenants are getting the same response. At RPM there is always someone at our office. This gives our customers and tenants that personal touch when they call. They are greeted by a person not a machine. We are open Monday through Saturday! This means that our clients as well as our tenants are guaranteed to get their questions answered. It also gives you peace of mind that RPM is taking care of your investment property. As a RPM member you will also receive the following services:
We determine a rental budget and a fair marketable rent rate for your property. The studies we compile include mortgage payments, maintenance and management costs.
We will write and insert a classified ad in the newspaper, as well as on the internet mentioning the details which will most effectively entice a prospective renter. When the property is rented we handle the cancellation of the ads as well. RPM also provides a professional “For Rent” sign that we place at your rental property. In our office we hand out to prospective tenants free vacancy sheets, so they can tour our vacant homes.
We will thoroughly screen all replies 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 two landlords 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 hard, but it is as important to RPM as it is to you that we place good people into your investment property. The early personal contact that a tenant receives from RPM establishes a good dependable relationship.
We will answer the renter’s maintenance complaints and arrange for repair work. Our tenants have access to a 24-hour emergency number 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.
When a tenant checks 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. Our Leasing agents also conduct monthly “drive by” inspections on your property to make sure that the tenant is taking the best care of your rental investment.
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. RPM also sends to 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.
