Bridgeman Property Management, LLC Services
There are many important services a property management company must perform in order to effectively manage residential properties. Our services begin with properly preparing your property for lease prior to procuring a qualified tenant and end with conducting a thorough exit inspection once your tenant has vacated. Listed is a brief description of all of the services provided before, during and after your tenant has taken possession of your property:
Preparing Property: Your home assessment is conducted by qualified in-house property managers in order to see first hand any discrepancies that need to be addressed without having to call in a third party inspector. This assessment is conducted on your property in order to note any potential safety hazards or potential future problems that may effect the integrity of your property (water heater improperly strapped, inadequate caulking around tub and shower which could cause dry rot, etc.). A detailed typed report will be e-mailed to you for review. Bridgeman Property Management, LLC (BPM) will coordinate any work per your request.
Market Analysis: BPM will conduct a comprehensive market analysis prior to marketing your property in order to obtain the maximum rental amount with the least amount of days vacant.
Marketing: Our extensive marketing procedures will include any or all of the following marketing procedures in order to procure the best-qualified tenant in the least amount of time:
- Pictures of your property will be posted on our web site.
- Placing ads on various rental web sites with links to pictures on our web site.
- Placing property on Multiple Listing Service will expose your property to over 5,000 licensed real estate agents.
- Sign in yard if authorized by owner.
Our experienced leasing agents are available evenings, weekends and normal business hours to show your property to prospective tenants
Qualifying Prospective Tenants: Our thorough screening process which includes inspecting credit reports (including history of unlawful detainer and/or prior evictions), a National criminal history/background check, rental history with current and previous landlord, employment history and income verification will assure you that we have selected the most qualified tenant for your property.
Preparing a Lease: BPM will prepare a lease agreement that will include all addendum and disclosures required by law in order to properly secure your tenant prior to occupancy.
Assessment Prior to Occupancy: A thorough and detailed assessment of your property immediately prior to occupancy will accurately document condition of your property prior to tenant taking possession. This assessment will include digital pictures of interior and exterior of your property.
Monthly Statements: Rent will be collected on the first of each month. All bills associated with your property, except for HOA payments, will be paid when due during each month. A computerized monthly statement describing all activity for each month will be sent to you along with any monies owed after expenses. Monies can also be deposited directly into your bank account.
A Year End Statement will be prepared and sent at the end of each calendar year. This statement will categorize all income and expenses throughout the previous year. Your accountant will surely thank you for this.
Maintenance and Repairs: 7 days a week, 24 hours a day your tenant will be able to reach a qualified property manager who will quickly direct the proper vendor to your property for any maintenance or repair issues. Working the last 10 years within the Real Estate industry, Bridgeman Property Management, LLC has compiled an extremely talented and honest group of vendors who will quickly respond and efficiently perform any work required for the proper maintenance or repair of your property.
Semi-Annual Property Assessments: Two times per year our qualified property managers will conduct a thorough assessment of your home. A detailed PDF report will be e-mailed to you. Digital pictures will be included in the report. BPM will coordinate any work per your request.
Exit Assessment: Once your tenant has vacated your property a detailed exit assessment will be performed. Condition of your property will be documented. Any damage by tenant will be noted and once again digital pictures will be taken. Initial assessment and pictures will be referenced in order to properly disburse your tenant’s security deposit.
From here the process starts again. Every few years carpets will need to be replaced and rooms will need painting. Once in a while a roof will have to be replaced. Our qualified staff will procure estimates and coordinate any and all work required in order to maintain the highest standards of your property.
