Our Apartment Management Services
1. Property marketing
Is a vacancy at your apartment frustrating you? If so, worry no more. Whether you are looking to fill one unit or 20 units with quality tenants, Cressman Realty & Property Management can help.
We use a myriad of effective marketing strategies to expose our clients’ vacant units. Long gone are the days of just placing yard signs and running newspaper ads and hoping for the best. Times have changed.
At Cressman Realty & Property Management, we use a combination of strategies to expose vacant units to as many prospective tenants as possible. From our own website to social media to rental listing sites, we’ll get your property rented in record time.
What’s more, we’ll also help you show the property to prospective tenants. We’ll dress for the occasion, and be as helpful to prospective tenants as possible.
2. Tenant screening
Cressman Realty & Property Management only aims to rent to respectful and reliable tenants. Great tenants take care of their rented homes. They not only pay rent on time, but they also care for it and leave it in good condition.
For such reasons, we don’t take tenant screening lightly. We go above and beyond to ensure we place quality tenants in the properties we manage.
We check and verify credit information, employment status, and even run social media checks. In addition, we also call previous landlords to get a feel of what renting to the tenant can be like.
During such calls, we ask the previous landlords a number of vital questions. Such as:
- Was the tenant disruptive to other tenants or neighbors?
- Was the unit clean and in good order when they left?
- Did the tenant reasonably take care of the rental property?
- Did the tenant pay their rent on time?
- Has the tenant notified you that they are looking to move out?
It’s no wonder we have one of the lowest eviction rates in Regina!
3. Rent collection
This can be an onerous task for a property owner, especially if you are just starting out. Luckily for you, Cressman Realty & Property Management can help take care of that for you.
Just like other services we offer, we also employ a number of strategies in this regard. Our aim is to ensure you are paid on time, every time. Some of the strategies include:
- Screening tenants effectively. We only rent to tenants that are able to afford paying rent without issues. In fact, we normally require tenants to make at least 3X the monthly rent amount as income.
- Ensuring the rent policy in the lease agreement is as detailed as possible. We’ll comb through your lease agreement to ensure it contains detailed rent-related terms.
- Setting up a reliable rent payment system. We ensure we don’t give our tenants a reason not to pay the rent when it’s due. We provide our tenants an online portal, where they can make their rent payments easily and conveniently.
- Not accepting cash payments. We do this in an effort to safeguard our employees, tenants and owners.
Did we also mention that we can help you conduct a free rental analysis? That’s right! We can help you know how much your rental units can rent for for FREE.
4. Handling maintenance requests
Cressman Realty & Property Management also strives to build great relationships with the tenants we manage. After all, the property management industry is a service industry. How we treat (or mistreat) our tenants has an impact on our success.
And one way in which we ensure we build a solid relationship with them is by being responsive. And more so, when it comes to maintenance issues. Our goal is to have them resolved as quickly as possible. Whether the issues are urgent or not, we’ll make sure we’ve taken care of them in record time.
We also strive when it comes to communication. Tenants like being kept in the loop, whether it’s on information regarding their application status or details of their lease.
5. Drafting of lease agreements
Cressman Realty & Property Management understands the Saskatchewan Landlord-Tenant Act. As such, we’ll not only help you create a lease that has your best interests, but one that’s legal.
