How Do I Create a Lease Agreement?

Managing a rental property can be a lot of work. Before you even get started with a tenant, however, you need to make sure that you have a quality lease agreement. The purpose of the lease is to clearly define everything the tenant can expect of you and everything you expect of them. It is a legal document that both parties will be held responsible for if they fail to meet the agreement.

There are a couple ways to go about creating a lease agreement. You can have an attorney create your lease agreement and by so doing you can be confident that it includes everything you wished for it to include. The only problem with attorneys is that they are very expensive. Another way to have a lease agreement created is to hire a property management company. A full-service property management company will be able to provide you with all the legal forms you need to make your property a success.

Since they work with hundreds of different properties they can easily provide you with a lease the fits your needs for much less. One thing that  you should avoid at all costs is making your own lease agreement without any professional review or guidance. If you make your own lease and accidentally make a mistake it could cost you big down the road.

On Time Maintenance for Your Rental Property

Making sure that your rentals are well-maintained can take up a huge portion of your time as a property manager. One very important thing to remember is that the sooner you can complete maintenance requests, the better! Even the most understanding tenants expect you to fix their problems almost immediately. In fact, the entire process needs to be quick.

You should respond to their request ASAP and let them know that you are aware of the problem. In emergency cases you may have to go over right then and there to help them. For example, if the unit is flooding you will want to get there as soon as possible to help prevent further damage. If the problem is something that you yourself cannot fix then you should contact another resource. It is good to build a relationship with several different contractors so that if something ever does come up, you’re covered.

The Little Things Count

Showing your tenants that the little things are just important to you as they are to them can help you keep your rentals filled as long as possible. When a tenant informs you of a problem you need to do your best to keep them calm and happy while reassuring them that things will be taken care of shortly. If you cannot make it until another day then let know the soonest you can be there so they don’t feel like they’re being blown off.

Due to the time demands of being a full-time property manager a lot of people opt for hiring a property management agency to handle the responsibilities for them. A full-service property management agency can help you with emergency and routine maintenance issues. That means that you can let them do all the work for you while you sit back and enjoy your free time.

Should I Landscape My Rental Property?

A lot of people purchase investment properties with the end goal of renting them in mind. Most of these properties are considered an investment because the buyers understand the potential to make money once they put some good hard work into them. It’s not uncommon for a “good deal” to require things like new flooring, paint, maybe some drywall and even plumbing or electrical work. A lot of the times if the house was in this kind of shape chances are the yard wouldn’t look much better.

If you want to know if you should landscape your rental then the answer is yes! Landscaping is sort of like the icing on the cake. If you have spent time and money getting a home ready for renters, you need to make sure yard looks just as nice. Curb appeal plays a big part of the emotional process of choosing a place to live, and a great yard can really put people over the edge when it comes time to make a decision.

What if I Don’t have Much Experience Landscaping?

If you are feeling a bit inexperienced with landscaping then you should hire professional landscapers to do the work for you. While it is cheaper to do it yourself, with a professional landscaper you know the job will be done right which can save you money in repairs down the road. If you are using a separate property management company you can speak with them to get recommendations of pre-approved contractors to help you with the landscaping.

Another option would be to submit your needs into a website like Bid Boomerang. Their system allows you to get multiple bids from pre-approved contractors to help you with landscaping in Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Tempe, and other Arizona cities.

Marketing Your Property

After all your hard work preparing your rental for new tenants, it’s important that you know how to market your property and manage it effectively. The best way to cover all your bases is to hire a local property management agency. They will have the experience you can rely on to get high quality tenants into your rental faster.

At RPM  East Valley we specialize in property management for Chandler, Mesa, Tempe, Gilbert, Queen Creek, Phoenix, Scottsdale and many other Arizona locations. We can help you make your rental investment a success with complete turnkey property management. Call today, (480) 719-1243

Choosing New Flooring for Your Rental Property

First impressions are really important, especially when it comes to showing a rental property to a potential tenant. If you have been struggling to fill your property with tenants or simply don’t have time to waste and want to get it rented quickly then installing new floors can help you out.

The type of flooring you go with should be influenced by the location, the size of your rental, and how much you expect to get for rent. Since people usually don’t purchase multimillion dollar homes for the purpose of renting them, we’ll stick to the more average stuff.

Types of Floors

As mentioned before, since a rental is all about return on investment, for the most part we want to stay away from Travertine, Marble, and other natural stones that can be very expensive. Instead try and stick to more basic tile and carpets.

You want to pick a carpet that will be durable and easy to clean but that is also comfortable. With any tile or carpet you should choose colors that are neutral so that they appeal to a broader group of people. Having new carpet or tile in an apartment can really add to the value to the overall unit. Many people will be excited because of the “new” feeling that it creates and that can actually help them make their decision.

Advertising your Property

Quality advertising for your rental property can really speed up the process of getting new tenants to fill it. After all it doesn’t matter how updated and new the property feels if people don’t know that it is available. Here at RPM East Valley we have over 25 years experience advertising properties throughout the entire valley.

We have extensive knowledge of the rental markets in each city which means that we can help you strategically list your property so that it gets better exposure and the best price possible.

Collecting Rent: The Do’s and Don’ts

Getting up to bat may be every kids favorite part of baseball, but it doesn’t mean that it isn’t problematic. The same goes for collecting rent. A lot of people looking forward to rent collection because it means that they get paid, but if you’re not careful it can be a big hassle. If you want to make collection day easier for you and your tenants then there are a few simple Do’s and Don’ts that you need to follow.

The Do’s

When it comes time to collect rent you need to be as professional as possible. If you manage a property on your own then you need to be prompt in your rent collection. You should make it a point to never miss a collection day. If you show up a day late then your tenants will begin to think that this is a regular behavior. Besides, you’re giving away free time in your property if you don’t take care of things promptly.

If your tenant is late on a payment it is important to begin the eviction process immediately. This doesn’t mean that you actually end up evicting them, more that they receive warning notices that the eviction process has begun and that they will be forced to give up residence if they cannot make their payment within a certain time period. You should also charge your tenants a late fee for missing their payment. Just because you are a single person managing a property it doesn’t mean you can be taken advantage of. You want to establish a business relationship with tenants and let them know that although you are there to help with whatever they need, you still expect them to uphold their end of the agreement.

Another great “Do” in collecting rent is to hire a property management company. With an experienced property management company you get the advantage of access to their automated payment systems. This makes it easy for your tenants to create an account and login online to make payments or submit requests. You can also use the system to send reminders to tenants of when their payment is due.

The Don’ts

The first and most important “don’t” of rent collect, is never be the “nice guy.” If you have money to spare and you are renting a property to someone as a favor then you may be able to get away with being a “nice guy.” If property management is a necessary source of income then you absolutely cannot waste anytime allowing a tenant to live in your property rent free.

Do not accept an oral agreement! If you want to be successful in renting your property then you will need a well drafted rental agreement. Otherwise you won’t be able to pursue missed payments. When you create your rental agreement you want to be very thorough and cover all your bases so that you don’t run into legal trouble down the road.

Do not fail to collect late fees when a tenant does not pay on time. Most tenants will disregard this late fee or push it aside and refuse to pay it. If your lease agreement states that a late payment fee will be charged then you need to be firm in enforcing that. Also it is good to be very clear when you talk to them about information in the lease agreement and explain that late fees will be charged and must be paid otherwise they will violate their agreement.

Professional Help

If you want to get the added income that a rental can bring but do not want to deal with the stress of managing the property, then you should consider hiring an experienced property management company. Here at RPM East Valley we have experience in Tempe property management, as well as several other cities throughout the entire east valley.  Call us today for a free quote for your rental property.

Finding Responsible Tenants for Your Rental Property

If you’ve ever had a negative experience with tenants then you are well aware of the importance of finding responsible people for your rental property. Unfortunately as a property manager you have to expect the worst in people otherwise you may be taken advantage of. It is not uncommon for rental applicants to give false information about their rental history or current employment.

If you have no way to verify the information they provide then you may end up with a person who is much different than they appear. An irresponsible tenant could damage your property and cost you lots of money in repairs. They may be late with their payments or not pay at all. While you can never eliminate these possibilities 100%, the best way to ensure you have quality tenants is with an advanced applicant screening.

What Companies Provide Applicant Screening Services?

Saving Money with a Property Manager

When looking for an experienced property manager to handle the responsibilities of your rental there are many things to consider. One of the biggest things you’ll want to look into is the overall costs of their services. By choosing a full-service property management company, you can end up saving a lot of money in the long run.

Full-service property management should include everything that you need to make your rental a success. From the legal paperwork, and rent collection, to periodic inspections and emergency repair, a complete turnkey property management agency should have you covered.

How Can I Save with Full-Service Property Management

One of the biggest ways a full-service property management agency can help you save money is the benefit of using their preferred vendors. For example, here at RPM East Valley we have contractors that we work with all the time. Since we always go to them with our business they are willing to do the work at a lower cost.

The money we save in using these preferred vendors is then passed onto our clients. Also, many of our clients own their rentals as investments on the side of their full-time jobs. Most people struggle to efficiently handle both and notice that one or the other suffers due to time constraints. If you are working to juggle a full-time job and managing a rental, chances are you can improve your productivity by hiring an experienced property management agency.
