What to Expect from Professional Property Management with People’s

N

Less Vacancy. Better Tenants.

The Seattle rental market isn’t always easy to predict, and this is especially true when we’re talking about vacancy. Whether you’re having an easy time finding tenants or it’s becoming a challenge, long vacancy periods are expensive and best avoided. It doesn’t take an expert to know that well-maintained homes that are priced correctly will rent fast. It does take an expert to get your property ready for the market and priced correctly. That’s where we come in. We know the local market and the demands of tenants. We can get your property occupied quickly, saving you money and stress.

A successful investment experience also requires highly qualified tenants. You don’t want to be stuck with a renter who doesn’t pay on time, violates the lease, and refuses to communicate when maintenance is necessary. Our screening process is rigorous and consistent, and designed to immediately identify and approve applicants who have a history of great rental experiences. We talk to former landlords and we verify income. We identify tenants who are responsible, honest, and communicative. 

We lease homes throughout Seattle and the surrounding areas.

Responsive Maintenance Protects Your Asset

The value of your Seattle rental property depends on how well it’s maintained. We pay close attention to preventative maintenance because we know that keeps costs down. When it comes to routine repairs and emergencies that require immediate attention, People’s is available and ready to take the action that’s necessary to protect your investment and mitigate any further losses. Our vendors are licensed, insured, qualified, and dedicated to helping our owners and residents keep their properties in great condition. You can expect us to keep a close eye on your home, and resolve any issues with tenants or neighbors as soon as they arise.

Routine property inspections include detailed reports so you know exactly what your property looks like. We’ll do careful walk throughs before a tenant moves in and after a tenant moves out. We even drive by the home every month or two just to put eyes on the property and make sure everything seems to be in order. We’ll keep open and transparent communication channels for your residents and we’ll empower them to make repair requests as they occur, reducing the likelihood of any deferred or unreported maintenance.

Protections for you and your property go beyond maintenance and inspections. We also keep you compliant with all the local, state, and federal rental laws, reducing your risk and liability when it comes to legal issues. From screening protocols to move-in funds and winter eviction bans, we understand the requirements of renting out a home in Seattle, and we keep up with every new law.

We work in Seattle and all the surrounding areas, whether you’re renting out a single-family home or units in a small apartment building. 

Efficient HOA Management

Seattle is growing, and one part of the real estate market that’s growing too is HOAs. If you’re working within an HOA or community association that could use a little help, we can bring our systems and our support to you. We love helping associations increase their performance and their productivity.

If you’re not sure whether all the dues have been collected, and you know there are violations that have gone unaddressed, you run the risk of losing your grip on the association you care about.

We can help with Board meetings, the collection of dues and assessments, and repairs. Our automated systems and proven procedures can make your management more efficient. We’ll work with you on budgets and accounting. We’ll talk about maintenance and vendor contracts. We’ll handle your board agendas and do a better job of communicating with owners and holding them accountable to the rules and regulations they agreed to follow.

Free Rental Analysis

Knowing the rental value of your Seattle investment property is crucial to earning as much as you can on your investment. The market is fluid and changing all the time. But don’t worry – we keep up. Talk to us about your rental property or your entire portfolio. We’ll take a look at your home and evaluate its location, size, condition, and amenities. We know the local tenants and what they’re willing to pay. We’ll find the right price.

Remember that overpricing your home can be just as catastrophic financially as underpricing it. You don’t want a long vacancy period, and you don’t want to attract tenants who have been rejected elsewhere. Count on our data and experience – we’ll find just the right rent.
