Property Management Services for Galt Owners

Screening Tenants and Leasing Rental Properties in Galt

Finding a qualified tenant isn’t as easy as you may think. There are many fair housing laws to navigate, including some new regulations pertaining to Section 8 applicants that went into effect early in 2020. Trying to do it yourself leaves you vulnerable to fair housing claims and discrimination lawsuits.

Make sure you’re screening tenants thoroughly and fairly. If you’re not sure where to find tenants or how to conduct a background check, work with professional Galt property managers who know the process inside and out.

It takes years of experience to effectively screen a potential tenant while remaining in compliance with all state and federal laws. At Key Realty Center, we have been perfecting our process for more than a decade. We’re transparent and automated, and prospective tenants always know what our rental criteria is before they apply. We rigorously inspect and verify every detail of a tenant’s application, making sure we’re placing someone who can be trusted to pay rent on time and take care of your property.

You’ve probably been a tenant before; you know what it’s like to fill out applications and read through lease materials and hope you’re getting a landlord who is responsive and fair. It’s stressful. We understand, and we are careful to treat tenants like the paying customers they are. We let them know they’re valued and appreciated. This leads to better retention rates and fewer vacancy expenses for you.

Maintaining Your Galt Investment Property

At Key Realty Center, we know that rental property maintenance is necessary, even though it’s an expense that many owners would prefer not to incur. We are cost effective and proactive, ensuring that your home is protected and its value secure.

For emergency repairs that cannot wait, we are available 24 hours a day and seven days a week. Our tenants understand how to mitigate the damages that an emergency can bring. We respond quickly with our own maintenance team or our preferred vendors and contractors who are committed to good work and affordable prices. We’re available, accessible, and responsive.

You need inspections at move-in and move-out to effectively document the condition of your property. We do this with hundreds of pictures and detailed notes. You’ll always have access to copies of your inspection reports, and we’ll visit when we can during the tenancy, too, ensuring that your tenants are meeting our expectations and following the terms of the lease.

Count on us to:

  • Conduct annual interior inspections and periodic external inspections.

  • Manage a pre-inspection prior to tenant move-out.

  • Provide emergency services 24/7.

  • Work with reliable, reasonably priced vendors to ensure best value.

  • Maintain records of work orders and track your history of maintenance.

  • Bill tenants when repairs are their responsibility.

Our in-house Galt property management maintenance team is reliable, professional, and effective. They work well with our tenants, they fix things the first time, and they charge a lot less than some of the outside vendors you’d have to use if you were managing on your own.

Galt Rental Property Accounting

Rental property accounting can be complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. When you work with Key Realty Center, you can count on accurate, timely, and transparent accounting reports and statements that reflect the income, expenses, and performance of your rental property.

We know that not every Galt property management company provides the accounting details you need. We’ve spoken to new clients who have suffered through mystery expenses, inflated maintenance invoices, and late rental payments.

These things, we believe, are unacceptable. Don’t settle for sloppy accounting or missing rent payments.

Our investment in property management accounting software keeps us accountable.

We respect the legal financial responsibility we have to you and your rental property. Beyond that, we like to be good people who set good examples. We won’t tolerate unanswered questions and mystery charges, nor do we accept mediocrity. You shouldn’t either.

Our accounting practices are in compliance with all industry standards, rules, and practices. We deliver reports that are easy to read, and you’ll always have access to your up-to-the-minute information through your online portal. We take tax season seriously, and we’ll help with payments on your behalf for any property-related bills.

What Our Clients Say

 

We have used Key Realty to manage our commercial property, with 5 separate leases, for the past 10 years. So when we wanted to branch out into home rentals it was a no-brainer on who we could count on. Not only did Rod Luman find us a great property, he got us a great price and has managed it for the last 6 years. We are happy, but equally as important, our renters are also happy. He takes care of everything from screening applicants, making sure we are in compliance with all landlord laws, and meeting the needs of our renters so that we can continue our everyday careers… We couldn’t be more pleased!
