What price should I ask for on my rental?
Those new to real estate investing may be tempted to set the rent price according to what the mortgage is but this is rarely the rule of thumb with a property. When this happens, the property owner is either missing out on extra income because the price is too low or missing out on tenants because the price is too high. We are local experts in helping you determine the best price to rent your property for according to the local market. Thousands have relied on us for our experienced guidance navigating the rental price of their rentals. We will help you get the best return according to the market.
How can I ensure my property is cared for?
Intentional damage to a property is very rare with us because of our solid background and credit screening processes. We create tenants who take better care of the property and stay longer because of our responsive service and proprietary renter incentives.
What happens if a tenant doesn’t pay or must be evicted?
Even with careful tenant placement, late payments and even the need for an eviction can arise due to unforeseen circumstances such as job loss, divorce, and other causes. Here in Washington it can be costly if issues are not handled correctly and timely. Real Property Management Today will successfully avoid most evictions through a system that promptly collects rent and incentives tenants to pay rent on-time. If an eviction is necessary, we manage the eviction process swiftly, professionally, and in compliance with state and local laws. The goal is always to get the property re-leased as soon as possible.
How do I keep the cost of maintenance to a minimum?
Maintenance expenses are necessary with rental properties. But, being proactive in caring for repair issues will help keep vacancies to a minimum and save a lot of money over the long term. We have established trusted relationships with our preferred vendors which helps you ultimately save money and time, and our inspections of the property help you to identify issues before they get expensive.

Remember, properties must be maintained, cleaned and all safety hazards removed before a property is leased.
