10 Reasons Why You Should Work With Us
Atlanta Area Property and Management knows that selecting the right company to manage your asset is crucial to the success and profitability of your investment. Selecting the wrong property management company can cost you thousands.
1. Aggressive Marketing Programs.
Our comprehensive marketing strategy is comprised of a variety of proactive campaigns. It includes pushing your listing out to hundreds of rental websites, utilizing the multiple listing services, promoting referral programs for real estate agents and brokers, and engaging our own client-owners - just to name a few. Our campaigns drive a constant flow of tenants allowing us to fill vacancies quickly and with a quality tenant for top dollar.
2. Accurate Pricing.
We will provide you with a rental market analysis report so you can reasonably know how much you can expect to get for your home. We won't give you a high rent amount just to win your business. The report will show you homes in your area with listing details and what they are charging for rent plus photos so you can compare the condition and location against the competition.
3. Rigorous Tenant Screening.
We perform one of the most stringent tenant screening processes in the industry substantially minimizing payment risk and evictions. We check credit, background, employment, and rental history. We obtain copies of ID’s as well as pay stubs or tax returns to ensure potential tenants can actually afford the property.
4. Our Promises and Guarantees:
Tenant Guarantee. Getting a great tenant is not easy but we are
extremely confident in our thorough tenant screening that we stand behind the
tenant with our Tenant Guarantee.
Pet Damage Guarantee. Nearly 75% of potential tenants own pets so we recommend that you allow them. We screen pets like we screen tenants - very stringently. Our screening allows us to provide you a pet guarantee that covers pet damage. These are just a couple of our promises and guarantees that benefit you. Click here to view more.
5. Long-Term Tenants.
To keep your property profitable, we seek long term tenants. Our initial leases start with an 18 to 24 month term that automatically renews annually with a 3% rent bump. We find that longer leases from the start ensures long-term commitments and a more stable tenant who becomes part of the community and are more likely to stay for several years.
6. Powerful, Owner-oriented Lease.
Our attorney-approved lease is specifically designed to mitigate owner risk protecting you and your investment. Our lease is a result of the many years of dealing with tenants and their shenanigans. We stay away from standard form leases used by most management companies that offer limited owner protection.
7. State-of-the-art Software.
We utilize the industry’s best property management software system which provides you with detailed monthly statements outlining all activity in your account. You’ll have access to your account through an owner’s portal anytime and anywhere. Your tenant will also have access to a portal where they can make rent payments and submit repair requests at any time, day or night, weekends and holidays.
8. Our Own Company Contractors.
To keep repair and maintenance costs low, we have our own handymen and contractors. We found that most independent companies don't like to do small jobs so they add up-charges, trip fees, plus after-hours and emergency charges to get the price up. Using our own crew, we are able to provide our great price and service for a small repair on Christmas Day as we do during the regular work week.
9. Tenant Benefit Program.
Our tenants are automatically enrolled in our exclusive Tenant Benefit Program which not only benefits the tenant but also benefits you. TBP includes payment reporting to the credit bureaus, an online portal with a multitude of payment options, front-door delivery of dated furnace filters, and renters insurance covering tenant personal property and owner asset protection.
10. Only Property Management.
Although we are licensed Georgia real estate agents, we do not handle any “buy/sell” real estate activities. Our business is centered around property management in order to avoid any conflict of interest or being distracted by large commission opportunities. Property management is our only business - not a side activity to hold us over when the economy gets tough. Because we only focus on property management, we are incented to rent your home as quickly as possible at the highest rent possible with the best tenant possible!
