Why use Phoenix
Top Five Reasons to Hire Phoenix
1) You’ll Make More Money with Phoenix
Many property owners are afraid to hire a property manager because of the cost involved — not realizing they will actually make more money in the long term due to the increased care of the property. You will get better tenants that stay longer and have less damage and repairs to deal with. Your property remains in great shape.
2) Phoenix Will Save You Time & Headaches
How much time does it take to be your own landlord? Could you be making better use of your time? It can be a full-time job to track rent payments, collect late fees, deal with complaints and repairs, prep the property for new tenants. find vendors, and deal with bad tenants. It may also become a constant source of stress. Relinquishing these ongoing responsibilities to Phoenix can allow you to benefit from your investment without sacrificing your time and health.
3) Better Tenants Thanks to Screening and a Bigger Pool of Potential Renters
Phoenix knows exactly how to find the best tenants and screen out potential tenants with a bad history. Phoenix offers a bigger pool of applicants to choose from due to our extensive marketing and advertising network. The result is better quality tenants in your property faster.
4) Phoenix knows Fair Housing
How much do you know about the laws that apply to being a landlord? One of the biggest advantages to hiring Phoenix is the ability to avoid some legal hassles. With a full understanding of all the state and federal laws when it comes to discrimination in screening and selecting tenants, we ensure compliance. In the event that an eviction becomes necessary, Phoenix knows how to handle in a way that saves time and money while staying within the boundaries of the law.
5) Phoenix Serves As a Buffer Between Owners and Tenants
In using Phoenix, a property owner is able to keep a professional distance from their tenants. Getting too personally involved can result in being too lenient on certain issues or too defensive about certain types of complaints.
Renting out a property is a business and it is much easier for Phoenix to keep things on a strictly professional level. When issues arise, Phoenix is best prepared to deal with any problem effectively.
About Phoenix Property Management
When you have a rental property, the first thing you need to decide is what you’ll charge someone to occupy your property. How will you come to that decision? Most people read the ads and see what homes or apartments of a similar size are renting for. But that really isn’t going to tell you what you need to know.
Unless you’ve seen both the interior and exterior of the properties, you don’t know how their condition and location compare to yours. And of course, condition and location play an important role in how much someone will pay.
Fair market rent will also depend upon a few other factors. Will you furnish the appliances or do they need to bring their own? Can they get a satellite dish? How about pets? Will your tenants pay a separate fee for sewer, water, and garbage service, or will those be included in the rent? What kind of heat does your property have? What does it cost?
The result of not knowing the going rate for comparable properties is that owners simply have to guess, and hope for the best. And oddly enough, we’ve found that most property owners charge a lower rent than necessary.
When we take over the management of a rental property, we are generally able to raise the rents enough to more than cover our management fees. In addition, we’ve found that tenants who pay a little more are usually more responsible and keep the property in better condition than tenants who pay less.
