Landlord Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to your common questions
Q: Why pay someone a fee to lease my home when I can do it myself for less?
A: Remarkable Property Management uses qualifying procedures that ensure the tenant has the ability and credibility to lease your home. Because our marketing strategies are designed to attract qualified tenants, the time and money that is saved far outweighs the leasing and management costs.
Q: What more do I need to know about leasing my home other than the price and size?
A: Did you know you are subject to the Fair Housing Laws? Do you know what they are? Do you know your legal liability about these rules? What about lead paint disclosure and security laws? Being a member of the National Association of Realtors, MetroTex Realtor Association, and the National Association of Residential Property Managers keeps us on top of the ever-changing laws and regulations.
Q: I haven't had a problem with my tenants.
A: That's great! Maybe you will continue to have good tenants. However, what if you don't? Did you get enough deposit if there is a problem? Can your lease be enforced in court? Do you know what your legal rights are? Could this have been avoided by a thorough background and credit check? Probably. Remarkable Property Management runs full investigative background checks, including credit history, income verification, criminal history, rental history, evictions and bankruptcy checks.
Q: Why list with Remarkable Property Management and not a local real estate agent?
A: Most real estate agents are in the business of selling homes - - not leasing them. Their main interest is sales. They may list your home for lease in MLS, but how else is it marketed? Check out our top 10 Strategies for leasing your home FAST.
Q: What other services do you provide?
A: Our advanced phone system connects prospects with leasing specialist during evenings and weekends. Prospects immediately receive the information they need about your home and have the ability to schedule a showing right away. When you go out who takes the calls on your property? Your answering machine? Your child?
The highest risk time in property management is when the tenant is moving in or out. Remarkable Property Management provides professionally prepared leases and forms to protect and insure your rights as a landlord. We make sure that the tenant obtains renters’ insurance and utilities are transferred properly. We coordinate the re-key and update locking devices, if needed. Making sure that the move-in goes smoothly and that a proper walk-thru is done is part of our standard service.
Q: What about the security of my property?
A: Security is something we all think about these days, personal as well as property security. Remarkable Property Management never sends someone to your home; a licensed real estate agent will always escort them. We also remove the risk of you meeting someone alone on your property. This may sound foolish, but consider this: You get a call about your property and you are to meet the potential tenant there at 6:00 pm. Now it's 6:30 pm and dark. The prospective tenant shows up or at least you think it's the prospective tenant. Actually, you don't really know. Sounds a little risky? It is risky! Remarkable Property Management Agents are trained to qualify their prospects to minimize the risk and know whom they are dealing with.
