Hiring the right property management company for your rental units can make the difference between operating at a profit or incurring a loss. Since the most profitable properties are those that are well maintained, we want to ensure that your properties are kept in the best possible condition, both inside and outside. To that end, we conduct regularly scheduled house inspections in accordance with the terms of each lease.
These inspections enable us to catch minor maintenance issues before they become major expenditures. They also help ensure that we maintain the highest quality of tenant. Especially for long-distance owners, this can provide significant peace of mind.
If you’re new to property management in Berkeley or if you don’t live in the area, you may be unfamiliar with all the procedures involved in property management. We have decades of property management experience and it’s the only thing we do. Ultimately, you’ll spend more time and money in self-management than you would have by hiring Keyrenter property management.
Whether you own one unit or many, whether they’re single family homes, one or more condominium complexes, duplexes or other multi-family units, we will provide you with some of the best property management services in the industry. Regularly scheduled house inspections enable us to address maintenance issues early, which can save you substantial money over the life of a property. Our goal is to provide timely attention to tenant issues as they occur, provide the best tenant and client relations that we can, and to always focus on our clients’ best interests.
We keep our core values at the forefront of our business so that when we enter into a management contract with a client, it becomes a long-lasting relationship. Our core values are as follows:
- Keyrenter creates wealth through real estate
- Relationships are the foundation of our success
- We embrace technology to make it simple
What We Do
Your real estate is part of your overall wealth so you want a property management company that values your investment as much as you do. When we conduct our house inspections, our team will make detailed notes about the condition of the property at the time of the inspection. These notes eliminate discrepancies when a tenant vacates; this protects us, it protects the tenant, and it protects you.
By recording the condition of the property over the course of each tenancy, we are able to address maintenance issues timely, which ultimately saves you money and increases the value of your property. It also decreases turnover costs because tenants are more likely to stay in a unit that is well maintained and shows pride of ownership.
We strive to build long-term relationships with our clients; this helps you feel more comfortable and it helps build our reputation. Our standards are very high, both for our tenants and for our clients, which translates to success for all of us. We pride ourselves on our outstanding customer service so you’re assured of our dedication to our clients and our tenants.
Use Of Technology
We believe that technology can simplify our lives, so we offer online access to our clients and tenants. This enables owners, especially long-distance owners, to contact us at any hour with any of their concerns. You can also schedule additional house inspections online, which may provide you with additional peace of mind.
In addition to addressing maintenance issues, we can offer advice on increasing your property value and your income as well as decreasing turnover rates. Turnovers are expensive. Maintaining a low turnover rate helps maximize the value of your investment. Our use of social media enables us to maximize our advertising while minimizing its associated costs.
Property management in Berkeley is more than just house inspections and rent collections. Our dedicated and professional staff can help you with all aspects of property ownership, such as:
- Property analysis
- Determining market comps
- Setting an appropriate rent
- Advertising for tenants
- Screening prospective tenants
- Tenant relations
- Rent collections
- Property inspections
- Preventive maintenance
- Routine repairs
One of the most difficult aspects of property management is screening tenants but it’s one of the most important. Our vacancy rate is consistently below 5 percent, which speaks volumes about our screening process. We utilize the latest industry trends to ensure that our expertise in this area remains among the highest in the industry.
No matter the quality of the property, rents must be commensurate with the comps for the area. We routinely check the area to make sure that our rents are competitive within the market and we’ll advise you of adjustments that need to be made either up or down. The house inspections are part of the procedure we use to keep our properties at the top of houses in the area.
Occasionally, you may find that a tenant needs to be evicted. Eviction is an unpleasant process and we’ll handle all aspects of it for you. Especially if you’re a long-distance owner, this service can be invaluable, and the records of the property inspections may play a vital role in the eviction process.
