Vacancies Are Filled Quickly
We will post eye-catching vacancy advertisements quickly to our website and hundreds of rental listing sites on the internet. Prospective long-term tenants can fill out an online application through our postings, our team completes the screening process and fills the unit quickly. The modern renter expects the ability to view property details online and to quickly apply to rent and we offer it!
Professional Web Presence
Our beautiful website, powered by AppFolio, is 100% integrated, so that we can seamlessly accept rent online, post and update vacancies with a few clicks, and accept online maintenance requests that automatically create work orders. With the ability to immediately post new vacancies to our SEO optimized website, we can help prospective renters easily find our listings and ultimately fill vacancies faster.
We Maximize Rental Rates
AppFolio’s built-in rent comparison tool allows us to compare rental prices of similar units in the same geographic location. With this information we can ensure our properties are competitive and we are maximizing long-term rental revenue.
Appealing To The Modern (Mobile) Renter
With AppFolio, our team provides a seamless online leasing experience for prospective renters. The prospective renter submits an online application, we run a background screen, then we sign the lease — all electronically!
Making this process easy and simple for the modern renter and our team means we can rent properties more efficiently and faster, every time.
Tenant Liability Insurance
We require residents to carry insurance in case of damage to the property. This saves claims on your property insurance or covers the deductible in more serious incidents. Knowing all of the units are covered also avoids the time and hassle of trying to collect from tenants who just don’t have the funds to pay for the damage.
Online Rental Applications
Prospective residents can fill out guest cards and apply online giving us the ability to capture their information in real time and approve these residents even faster. The online application is even mobile friendly!
Finding The Best Residents
Resident Screening is centralized in AppFolio. Applicants can easily be screened on the spot while at the property showing and the results are returned within seconds rather than hours. This easy-to-read Screening Report paired with rent payment history from Experian RentBureau allows us the unique opportunity to choose the most qualified resident for your property while they are still interested.
Our Team Is Extremely Efficient
Maintenance Requests and Online Work Orders
Residents can easily submit maintenance requests online and we can create electronic work orders, then communicate electronically with our vendors. All of this is tracked seamlessly in AppFolio and we can access information from any mobile device. This means we resolve property maintenance issues faster and keep residents even happier!
Online Rent Payments
We offer the option for residents to conveniently pay their rent online 24/7 instead of mailing checks. They can pay once, establish a recurring payment, or make a last minute payment. With a variety of online payment options including E-Check, Credit Card, and Electronic Cash Payments, funds are deposited faster and more securely. The online tenant portal is completely integrated with our accounting records and residents really appreciate the convenience and accessibility the online services provide them. Our OBX property management team is so much more efficient without the need to shuffle checks and drive to the bank.
