Why Hire a Property Manager?
Reasons To Hire Palm Island Property Management
TENANT SCREENING & SELECTION
Successful tenant selection is the first step in property management.
We scrutinize every applicant’s background, credit, criminal history, rental history, and financial qualifications to ensure that they are suitable to rent YOUR property.
We’ve developed a proven real estate marketing approach that utilizes on-line techniques as well as traditional guerrilla marketing strategies. In other words, we put signs in the ground. Even more than that though, we use every strategy necessary to get your property seen by the most people who might be interested in renting it. We use Classified Advertising, Multiple Listing Service (MLS), Web Sites, Craigslist, Pay-Per-Click Internet advertising and Signage (where allowed).
On top of all of that, our reputation brings in a lot of referrals and repeat renters.
Finding a suitable tenant is only the beginning. Once your property is rented, the real work starts. We do regular property inspections to ensure that your investment is protected (and our reputation stays intact).
During a typical annual lease term, your property will be inspected 3 times or more, to identify issues and rectify them before they become problems. Thorough interior inspections allow us to keep you well informed as to any maintenance needs, providing us with information as to how your investment property is being treated.
We’ve learned throughout the years that open communication with owners and tenants is the best way to maximize ROI for our property owners and protect their rental properties. Our phones are ALWAYS on and someone will always be available to answer tenant or property owner calls – 24/7/365.
PROFESSIONAL FINANCIAL REPORTING
Palm Island Property Management uses professional property manager software to provide you with professional reports. Whenever you want, you’ll be able to clearly track the performance of your investment, making income reporting and tax filing as simple as it can be. Our Owner Portals provide secure, instant access to your rental property’s performance and financial reports.
We have a maintenance team that can handle every possible problem. From busted water heaters to frozen AC lines; clogged garbage disposals to clogged toilets, our team does it all. We even have Lawn Maintenance services available, if you want to ensure that your property’s curb appeal is always maximized. As always, our personnel are fully licensed and insured.
