·Can I use your services if I already have an agent listing my home for sale?
RHE Property Management respects the Law of Agency and will work side by side with your Real Estate Agent. If a Tenant is found before a Buyer is found, then you simply remove your listing from the sales market. If your Real Estate Agent finds a Buyer before a Tenant is found, then you simply send us a copy of your contract and you can terminate without paying the full contract termination penalty. It is requested that you reimburse for half of the property marketing expenses for the months your property was advertised for rent up until you found a Buyer and you notified RHE Property Management in writing that your property went under contract.
·Do youhave a pet or smoking policy for properties that you manage?
It is recommended that a property owner is pet-friendly when possible. If pets are allowed, we will charge a $250.00 non-refundable pet fee per pet. Please note that by not accepting or considering pets you may be limiting your rental audience. Dog breeds considered aggressive are restricted. No smoking is allowed at any of our managed properties.
·How do I sign up for property management services?
Get started by Inquiring About Our Services.
·How do you handle property maintenance?
Our in-house maintenance department dispatches service vendors for routine maintenance. Maintenance dispatchers are on call during after-hours, weekends and holidays for maintenance emergencies.
·How do you screen and select rental applicants?
Tenant applications are processed electronically and include credit, criminal, sex offender and past eviction background searches. Our scoring and tenant recommendation policies are built on industry standards and are followed to ultimately accept or decline prospective tenants.
·How do you show the properties you manage?
We require all showings to be Agent assisted. No property access is granted unless the prospective tenant is accompanied by a licensed Agent. We use security code lock boxes on each property so that other Realtors® / Agents do not have to sign out a key at our office. Signing out keys is a deterrent to Realtors® / Agents and, in many cases, they will not show your property due to the extra time and gas required to pick up a key and take it back to the office.
Showings are scheduled through RHE Property Management and pairs prospective renters with a licensed Real Estate Agent in our Rental Showing Network.
·How will you advertise my property?
We advertise listings aggressively online through our website, local Multiple Listing Service (MLS), and multiple listing-syndication sites that blast your listing across the internet. We also advertise on our exclusive website, www.rhepropertymanagement.com. On the ground, we place For Rent signs at the properties.
·I would like to manage my property myself. Can you help me find a tenant?
Yes, we call this our “Procurement-Only” service option. We will find and screen well-qualified tenant, prepare the lease, and collect the required move-in funds. We then turn the lease and security deposit over to you and you assume management responsibilities for the lease term.
·Should I rent or sell my home?
This is a popular discussion point in our given economy. If you are undecided on renting versus selling then consider this scenario: Why not market your home for sale and rent at the same time? RHE Property Management has the resources and relationships with top producing Real Estate Agents to help you market your home for sale while searching for a well-qualified tenant at the same time. We will refer you to a top producer at no charge to you to ensure you have the absolute best resources to assist you in your real estate needs. When the best first option, Buyer or Renter, comes along then simply terminate the other option.
·What contracts do you use with homeowners / landlords and tenants?
Master agreements that have been reviewed by RHE Property Managements' legal counsel are used and are compliant across the States where business is held.
·What fees will you charge me?
