TOP 3 REASONS TO OWN A RENTAL PROPERTY
can be a great way to gain wealth and invest in your future.
What Sets Us Apart
Peace of Mind Property Management’s customer service is beyond anything offered by any other property management company. We focus on maintaining great relationships with the tenants. While the landlords are our clients, happy tenants stay longer and take better care of the property, which decreases cost by decreasing turnover and repairs. Building strong relationships with tenants and owners alike is key! When a landlord or tenant calls with a question, they always speak directly to one of us. They have our direct numbers and know they can call or text anytime day or night.
When other REALTORS® refer business to Peace of Mind Property Management, their client relationship is respected. We always refer the landlord back to their REALTOR® when it’s time to place a new tenant, or if they mention wanting to sell. We would never interfere with that relationship because we want continued referrals and it’s the right thing to do.
Team of Experts
Just as Peace of Mind Property Management encourages others to do, we make a conscious effort to surround ourselves with the right people. Peace of Mind Property Management has a team of experts that we refer to and in turn pass on savings offered to us from these reputable venders to our clients.
Care for Others
This starts with wanting to help everyone around us succeed. Our goal is for our businesses to be the kind of environment where people can grow to their fullest extent. If we help those around us succeed, we will succeed by default. Also, being kind to others. Peace of Mind Property Management prides itself on being kind, not just to our clients, but to our tenants, to our vendors and our co-op agents. Simply said, being nice pays off in the long run.
Once a tenant is placed, Peace of Mind Property Management will handle monthly rent collection. Tenants are set up to pay monthly rent via our electronic payment system. Electronic payments help ensure timely payments. Landlord payments are also sent out electronically to make sure you get your money as quickly as possible! You monthly management fee and any expenses due to the property management company are deducted from your rent payment each month with an emailed invoice for your records.
It’s our job to keep up with current regulations and be sure that your property has the proper inspections and registrations needed to be a legal rental property. We have a great working relationship with local contractors to make sure that all necessary inspections or repairs are completed before your home is rented out.
Once your home is ready to rent, Peace of Mind Property Management will assist you in finding the right tenant for your property. We will obtain a background report, credit report and a detailed application for each applicant. We will present this information to you and assist you in making the appropriate decision. The cost for tenant placement is typically the first month’s rent.
We take the 2 a.m. phone calls, not you! Peace of Mind Property Management will quickly handle the coordination of any repair or maintenance needs.
You are responsible for the cost of any repairs above the tenant’s repair deductible but we will assist you in purchasing a home warranty to prevent unexpected costs. In the event a repair is not covered by a warranty or if you choose not to purchase a home warranty, you will benefit from our relationship with reputable contractors who extend discounted pricing to our clients.
While we always try hard to get the right tenant in place, sometimes things go wrong. In the event an eviction is required, Peace of Mind Property Management will handle any court paperwork and court appearances on your behalf at an hourly rate of $50/hour.
