Our Property Management Services
Our rental management services are technologically driven and customer-oriented. As a full-service property management company, we can help property owners in a variety of ways. Our services include:
1. Setting a Competitive Rent Price
At T.E. Johnson & Sons, we can help you determine how much you should rent your property for. Many landlords, especially if they’re just beginning, make the mistake of either underpricing or overpricing their units. Underpricing means leaving money on the table, making it more difficult for you to maximize your ROI. Overpricing will drive away prospective tenants and make your property less competitive. We can advise you on the current rental market to help you determine a competitive and fair rental price.
2. Marketing Your Vacant Rental Property to Potential Tenants
Vacancies are every landlord’s worst nightmare. There is no income to look forward to at the end of the month while the property bills just keep racking up. At T.E. Johnson & Sons, Inc., we understand this frustration and work diligently to rent your property to a quality tenant as quickly as we can. Our marketing process is not based on a “one size fits all,” cookie-cutter approach. We customize this service to meet each of our client’s unique goals.
Our marketing strategies include using our own website, other rental websites, publications & newspapers, and yard signage. Using a wide variety of advertising techniques, we’ll get a large pool of high-quality applicants from which we can screen and select the right tenant for your property.
3. Extensive Screening of Prospective Tenants
Our marketing process is targeted to find only the highest quality tenants on the market. We subject each rental applicant to a thorough and detailed screening process that complies with the Fair Housing Act.
We conduct a full and careful review of each applicant’s credit, employment, income, and criminal background. We also cross-reference in three areas (credit, tenant history, and income) to verify that tenants can make their monthly rent payments. Using this method, we’re able to find quality tenants who won’t generate property damage or other expenses.
4. Preparing & Signing of Leases
T.E. Johnson & Sons will draft a thorough lease agreement for your property that protects your investment and interests. Our years of experience have helped us develop the knowledge of how to create lease agreements that are both legal and detailed. We require that all tenants responsible for the lease read and sign all rental/lease agreements that we draft. This helps minimize confusion and misunderstanding regarding its terms in the future.
5. Preventative Property Maintenance
At T.E. Johnson & Sons we believe the best approach to maintenance is preventative maintenance. This involves utilizing reliable contractors to make small repairs that will prevent long-term, costly maintenance. If your property is left to deteriorate, you’ll only have to spend more in the future. We also require that all tenants report maintenance as soon as possible, to avoid major maintenance costs due to negligence.
6. Rent Collection
As your property management company, we’ll work with your tenants to collect rent payments each month. We outline due dates and late fees with tenants in the lease agreement to prepare them ahead of time. This in combination with our thorough tenant screening means we face less missed or late rent payments. In the case that we do run into these issues, we will handle the problem by openly communicating with tenants and only involve owners if we believe there is an ongoing issue.
7. Online Monthly Financial Statements
At T.E. Johnson & Sons, we recognize the importance of accurately collecting and disbursing funds. We use specialized software to ensure we provide accurate record-keeping to property owners we work with. Each month, we send statements to property owners via email regarding the previous month. If you have any questions about your statement, we are always happy to answer them and assist you.
