Residential Property Management Services

Many people find themselves searching for residential property services after managing property on their own for some time. Many of our clients tell us that they wished they had hired TVRA sooner & could have reaped the benefits of professional property management services. Our full service residential property manager handles many time-consuming activities while solving the logistical puzzle many absentee owners face. 

Advertising and showing the property to prospective tenants are just the beginning. Screening applicants for credit worthiness, criminal & civil background information, and verifying income is a major task handled by our property manager. Negotiating and drafting all lease documents is an important step that must be handled with professionalism. Next on the list is pre-lease inspection of the property and land to have proper records of property condition before the tenant takes possession.

Once the tenant moves into the property, the residential property manager will perform routine inspections to check for property damages and scheduled maintenance items. Ultimately, our residential property manager's responsibility is to minimize vacancies, maximize rental income, and preserve the property for many years of residual income for our clients.

Reasons why property owners hire a residential property management company:

    • They do not live in the area. 
    • They do not have the time, expertise or ability to self-manage properties. 
    • They want to deal with a single company rather than many sub-contractors, tenants and others.
    • They don’t want to worry about collecting rent, dealing with tenant issues, maintenance, etc.
    • Property management fees may be tax-deductible.
