$500, and this doesn’t take into account our vastly superior marketing and extremely low days-on-market. Owners with >1 door under management are eligible for a discount.
They really don’t want to talk about this, but that attractive “flat monthly rate” doesn’t include tenant placement. They will NOT: take a single call from tenants, respond to a single email, put a sign-out, or post your property online –unless and until you agree to give them at least an entire month’s rent!
Real Estate Solutions never profits from maintenance. We use 3rd party vendors and keep them at arm’s length. We expect them to stand behind their work and offer competitive pricing for our clients.
The other guys charge extra for handling maintenance. Upcharges, surcharges, maintenance fees. Sometimes they charge the tenant AND the landlord! Often times this is hidden in your contract, and called an “affiliate vendor arrangement.” Legal, but unethical in our opinion. Repairs are bad enough, this is kicking you when you’re down.
Time Spent On Property
Included for no extra charge. Some properties take a lot of work, some take very little work. If your property ends up taking up a lot of our time, we are in it together with you and we won’t charge you more.
One of our competitor contracts specifically states that if they have to spend more than a few hours a year on your property, they’ll charge you another $70 or so per hour. This is common – anyway they can keep more of your money, they will.
We do not charge our clients for lease renewals. We still perform thorough property inspections, evaluate the property condition, ensure there is a clean ac/furnace filter and prepare a lease extension. All are included in our monthly fee.
Many competitors charge $399, and they are not doing anything we are not doing. It’s just another way to fleece their clients.
You get a clear statement every month and you get paid as soon as the rent comes in. We also keep you apprised of any late-pay situations and we let you know exactly what is going on with the rent.
Most of our competitors “batch pay” owners near the end of each month. It’s too time-consuming for them to pay you when the rent actually gets dropped off at their office or when it’s paid online by tenants.
We respond to text messages on average under 3 minutes. Emails are always responded to the same day, usually within minutes. We inform you of the status of your property before you have to even ask. Calls are answered or promptly returned.
If you have a question (about anything), good luck getting ahold of someone. If you can get someone to answer the phone, they will likely have to transfer you to a different department, and you’re likely to get a voicemail at that point. Emails will go unanswered for days, possibly weeks. When you do get someone, they are unlikely to be professional, polished, detail-oriented, and prepared for the call.
We encourage you to take a look at our “available rentals” to see for yourself what our photos and virtual tour videos look like. We take marketing seriously, from using the best equipment to having a professional watermark on the images, to editing the pictures professionally. The quality of the photos and videos is just the beginning. We also list client properties on all the top websites – including Zillow, Realtor.com, Apartments.com, Facebook Marketplace, the MLS, and countless other sites. On top of all of this, we are extremely responsive to prospective tenants. This is what professional property management looks like. This is Real Estate Solutions.
Amateur standard point-and-shoot pictures. Often, with lights off, blinds closed, easy staging not done, and often with dirty camera lenses that lead to blurry photos. There is no rhyme or reason behind the photos taken by other companies; the order of the photos is random, and the photos are not high-quality. The other companies do not include high-quality video virtual tours. The other companies, aside from poor-quality marketing, are very hard to reach, they are not flexible and quick with showing times, and they do not list on the top websites where RES lists properties. All of this leads to extended vacancy times.
Things you will never hear from us about our fees:
“Well it depends” or “Let me see what I can do”
We give you the best deal upfront. You don’t need to worry if you will get outsold by the other guy on the phone with us. We don’t wheel and deal to get the most out of you that we can manage. We’re fair, honest, and upfront with everything. No negotiating is necessary.
