No. We are specialists in the management of residential, commercial, and association properties. Our portfolio contains many single-family, duplex, tri, 4-plex, multi-family, industrial, and commercial properties, as well as hundreds of association properties
While the reasons our clients choose professional management vary, here are some of the key reasons why many people elect it over self-management:
- We handle maintenance and emergency repairs, allowing you to sleep at night.
- We enforce the collection of rents and serve the proper notices upon failure to pay.
- We understand and apply the correct federal, state, and local laws, keeping you and your investment out of trouble.
- We know the local market, have an extensive network of contacts, and have advertising resources available to us at discounted rates. This allows us to effectively market your vacant home to prospective residents to get it filled. After you add up the increased rent we can often command, the discounts you’ll receive on advertising, and the company rate we get on repairs, you’ll often make more money than if you managed the property yourself!
Generally, Signature Properties can have your property leased within 30-60 days of being on the market. However, some homes will lease quicker and some homes will take a little longer to find a qualified tenant. We will begin to market your home the moment it is rent-ready! The best time to have your home on the market is before the first of the month as tenants are usually looking to make a move at the end of the month. This means that if your house is priced right, in good showing condition, and available to occupy by the 1st then there should be no reason to miss a month of rent. We will guide you to price your home correctly the first time so we don’t have to reduce it after it is on the market. This way you can receive a full month’s rent instead of a prorated amount after a price reduction. At the time you turn over your property to us to handle, we will inform you of current market conditions, which will give everyone a better idea of market time.
We strive to provide you with the caliber of residents that you want in your rental home. We accomplish this by following a strict set of tenant selection criteria plus the performance of a complete national credit report on each of the adult tenant applicants, a complete verification of their rental history from their previous landlord, a verification of their employment, and a criminal background check.
