Will this cost me more?
It will always cost you less. Davis Property Management GUARANTEES a lower rate than any other property management company. It doesn’t get any better than stellar service at a lower price!
How do you know what to charge for my property?
Like most companies, we look at comparables for similar properties in the area. But because we are a local company, our solid base knowledge of the Greater Puget Sound area also plays a vital role. We strive to achieve the highest market rent for your property while eliminating down time of vacant units with our fast and proven turnover process and marketing tools.
How do you screen prospective tenants?
At Davis Property Management, we believe renting to high-quality tenants saves you trouble and money down the road. That’s why we always run credit and criminal background checks (where applicable as allowed by state and city laws) and verify relevant information such as employment history and past rental information at NO COST TO YOU.
Can you help with rental legal documents?
Absolutely. We provide industry-leading leasing documents that will protect you and your investment. Attorneys review our documents annually to make sure they are up to date with federal and state laws and regulations.
Can you make repairs to my property?
Yes. Davis Property Management employs reliable, trustworthy, and skilled repairmen to handle routine repairs. We work with our clients to make small repairs before they become big problems. However, if your property needs a major repair or remodel, we have long-term relationships with repair companies that provide us discounted rates. We pass on those considerable cost savings to you.
How do you market vacancies?
Our wide range of aggressive marketing strategies is very effective. Most of our vacancies are filled in less than one week, and that includes the turnover of the unit! Best of all, we pay little or no marketing costs.
Do you charge a leasing fee for renting a unit at a smaller property with no on-site manager?
If you are used to paying a full month’s rent in leasing fees, put your money back in your wallet. Davis Property Management charges a very minimal leasing fee compared to our local competitors, GUARANTEED. Contact us for a free quote.
