Let Barker Management make ownership as hassle-free as possible. In addition to keeping you informed about the condition of your property, our services include:
Determine Property Rent Value
We draw on thorough knowledge of the local real estate and rental markets to help determine the potential monthly income for each property.
Our marketing techniques – including online ads, open houses and marketing on our website – guarantee a property’s exposure. We are also available most hours of the day to handle calls and emails from potential renters, so owners don’t have to.
For additional protection, we collect a security deposit upon signing of each lease. Applicants with pets (if approved) are required to pay an additional deposit. All deposits are maintained in a trust checking account as required by state real estate regulations until they are refunded to the tenant within 30 days of move-out.
All rent is due on the 1st of each month and is considered late and penalized if received after the 5th of the month. Late notices are sent on the 6th and removal proceedings are initiated if the tenant does not make immediate arrangements for rent payment.
Prepare Property For Rent
We conduct thorough evaluations of the premises following each tenancy. We check paint that may need to be touched-up, carpets that require cleaning, and general wear and tear. We also note any damage to be covered by the vacating tenant’s security deposit.
We thoroughly screen prospective tenants for credit, employment, housing, and references. Because vacancies are expensive for us as well as our owners, we also personally interview eligible applicants to ensure only the most qualified tenant.
New tenants complete a Property Condition Worksheet upon move-in providing a legal record in the rare case that any damage occurs.
When the tenant vacates the property, we conduct a move-out evaluation, determine charges for which the tenant is responsible, make arrangements to have the work completed, and ensure the deposit accounting is completed per the Landlord/Tenant Act.
