What HP does to keep maintenance costs under control:
- No in-house maintenance, only licensed and insured independent contractors
- Estimates provided for owner approval on all repairs above the dollar limit YOU set
- Full documentation by repairmen of any repair caused by tenant negligence or abuse, so that tenants may be held responsible
- 24-hour pager number so that tenants may always reach a live person in cases of emergency
- Online and printed support for tenants give instructions and recommendations for preventative maintenance
- Addressing common problems and troubleshooting over the phone to avoid unnecessary repair
Drive-by inspections with a written report are performed regularly. We also produce a complete digital photographic record of the property at each interior/exterior inspection at no extra charge.
General interior/exterior inspections are conducted when we take over management, when we move tenants in and out, when roommates move out, approximately six months after each new tenant moves in (to get a feel for how they care for the property), and at least annually thereafter
All inspections are standard to our service and are provided at no additional cost to you.
Among other things, we check furnace filters, smoke detectors, grout/caulk, glass and screens, all kitchen and bathroom plumbing, and more.
If a problem is found to exist, we can quickly implement corrective action. Through this policy, we feel that unnecessary repair expenses can often be diminished or eliminated.
Timely placement of qualified tenants is critical to your bottom line. When a 30-day notice is received, we spring into action. You get:
- Immediate notification
- Professional recommendation regarding rent amount
- A professional FOR RENT sign promptly placed at the property
- A strategic, well-designed listing for your property, placed on our Available Properties page.
- An extensive narrative description and up to 50 photographs at NO extra charge!
- Tireless and sweeping use of the Internet, including craigslist and over a dozen other high- traffic sites, for maximum exposure
- Email notification sent to our waiting list of prospective tenants looking for a property like yours
- Showings that are flexibly scheduled to accommodate tenants, including weekends, holidays and evenings
- A thorough professional lease to safeguard your interests
Every week we have a staff meeting regarding all available properties. We review the database of information for each property, including how many people called about that property the prior week, how many people set up an appointment to see it, if we have any applications pending, etc. We determine if the rent is appropriate for your property in its location at that time of year based on current market conditions and make adjustments accordingly within the guidelines set by you, the owner.
Every effort is made to minimize the amount of time a property remains vacant. We even return calls and show vacancies on weekends, on holidays and in the evening.
We pay any bills associated with your rental home that you wish for us to, including mortgage, insurance, utilities, and homeowners association dues. We send owner funds with a detailed accounting statement earlier than anyone, on or about the 7th of every month. We can provide you with funds even quicker through direct deposit to your account.
