Comprehensive Marketing & Advertising
For each day your property is vacant, that’s money out of your pocket. Professional management costs are easily offset by shorter vacancy times. We spend thousands of dollars every month advertising our vacancies to get them filled – faster. Your property is advertised on high traffic rental and classified websites. A professional “For Rent” yard sign adds exposure to capture drive-by prospective tenants. Our experienced leasing agents respond promptly to inquiries and advise prospective tenants on details about the property, and show your home in the best possible light.
Prior to marketing and advertising your rental property, our experts also advise you in two important areas:
- Setting a competitive monthly rental rate based on a comprehensive analysis of property condition, upgrades, school districts, location and access to transportation, and area rental market rates.
- Getting your home ready to rent faster, to a high quality tenant, by providing recommendations and guidance on how to make your property rent-ready
Thorough Tenant Screening & Selection
Placing the wrong tenant can quickly cost you what you save by managing a property yourself. Every tenant application is evaluated based on credit, criminal background, sex offender registry (where allowed by law), employment verification and residency/rental history. Our thorough screening complies with all applicable laws, including Fair Housing and Fair Credit Reporting Act.
When we have found a qualified tenant we schedule lease signing and a move-in condition assessment with the approved tenant.
Your leasing agent manages the lease signing with the approved tenant, using our professionally prepared lease, and ensures that all proper contracts are executed correctly. At the same time, rents, deposits and any fees are collected in accordance with local legal and financial regulations, We also provide professional tenant education at lease signing.
Finally, the leasing agent and approved tenant conduct a walk-through to document conditions. This important walk-through assists in accurately assessing any changes in conditions when the tenant moves out
Professional inspections of your property both inside and out are beneficial to ensure tenants are complying with the terms of their lease and to assess property conditions.
Local Real Property Management offices typically conduct move-in, periodic, and move-out inspections. Documentation and photographs from these inspections assist in determining needed maintenance and repairs to maintain your home’s value and avoid costly repairs if left unattended.
Cost-Effective, Reliable Maintenance
Maintenance is a necessary expense in owning a rental property, and the return on your investment can be significantly impacted without timely, cost-effective repairs and upkeep. When handled by us, you’ll save time and money and ensure repairs are completed in a professional manner, by trustworthy maintenance personnel.
Munoz Realty has an extensive network of contractors, vendors and in-house staff to handle property maintenance and repair work. In addition, our exclusive partnerships with national and local vendors provide the professional level of service to our clients and customers that has come to be expected.
Strict and Compliant Evictions
Even with careful placement there is occasionally a tenant who needs to be evicted. Our staff is extremely knowledgeable in state and local landlord/tenant laws. If the tenant does not pay rent on time or breaches the terms of the lease, we initiate the proper legal steps necessary, in the fastest possible time frame, to minimize your costs and get the property leased again.
Ask us about eviction protection. For property owners who opt for this plan, the local office will pay for the eviction should it become necessary.
Our goal is to maximize your income and minimize your expenses. To keep track of your income and expenses we use a centralized accounting system. This all-inclusive accounting and reporting system, backed with itemized statements and tax documentation, keeps all your property management financial information organized in one place.
Munoz Realty provides each property owner client a password protected online account for easy access to financial reports any time you need.
