With over ten years experience Titan Realestate Services, LLC offers unparalleled property and association management in the Lafayette area. Below is a brief description of what a typical management agreement would include:
Titan Realestate Services, LLC makes every effort to keep you informed about your property. Your assigned agent will keep you up to date on any activity on your investment. Whether you live a few blocks from your rental property or hundreds of miles away, you can always rest assured our trained staff are working diligently and communicating with you all important activities associated with your account.
Comprehensive Marketing & Advertising
For each day your property is vacant, that’s money out of your pocket. Professional management costs are easily offset by shorter vacancy times. We spare no expense advertising and marketing our vacancies to get them filled. Your property is advertised on high traffic rental and classified websites. A professional “For Rent” yard sign adds exposure to capture drive-by prospective tenants. Our experienced leasing agents respond promptly to inquiries and advise prospective tenants on details about the property, and show your home in the best possible light.
Thorough Tenant Screening & Selection
Placing the wrong tenant can quickly cost you what you save by managing a property yourself. Every tenant application is evaluated based on criminal background, sex offender registry, employment verification and residency/rental history. Our thorough screening complies with all applicable laws, including Fair Housing.
Your leasing agent manages the lease signing with the approved tenant, using our professionally prepared lease, and ensures that all proper contracts are executed correctly. At the same time, rents, deposits and any fees are collected in accordance with local and financial regulations, and reflected in your monthly and year end reports.
After Hours Emergency Contact
In the event of an emergency or much needed repair such as appliance or HVAC issues, our tenants are able to reach us seven days a week, 24 hours a day. All repair requests are responded to within just a few hours and in most cases addressed the same day or by the next depending on the nature of the call.
Timely Rent Collection
Nothing affects your cash flow more than late or missing rent payments. We collect the rent every month and deposit it into your account expeditiously, or mail to your home or office, whichever you prefer. Our collection processes are professional but tough, and we are extremely diligent in collecting rent through a systematic, timely process.
Tenants are offered a variety of ways to pay rent and incentives for paying rent on time, so you can get your money on a regular basis. In addition, we treat each tenant respectfully and fairly, as a positive relationship with a tenant leads to timely rent payments as well as better care for your property.
Professional inspections of your property both inside and out are beneficial to ensure tenants are complying with the terms of their lease and to assess property conditions.
Our experienced agents conduct move-in and move-out inspections. Documentation and photographs from these inspections assist in determining needed maintenance and repairs to maintain your home’s value and avoid costly repairs if left unattended.
Cost-Effective and Reliable Maintenance
Maintenance is a necessary expense in owning a rental property, and the return on your investment can be significantly impacted without timely, cost-effective repairs and upkeep. When handled by us, you’ll save time and money and ensure repairs are completed in a professional manner, by trustworthy maintenance personnel.
Our office has an extensive network of contractors, vendors and in-house staff to handle property maintenance and repair work. If you prefer, we can use anyone that you want to handle all or certain tasks, just let us know and we’ll contact them in the event of a repair.
Strict, Compliant and Swift Evictions
Even with careful placement there is occasionally a tenant who needs to be evicted. Our staff has experience will both city court and surrounding Justice of the Peace Court. If the tenant does not pay rent on time or breaches the terms of the lease, we initiate the proper legal steps necessary, in the fastest possible time frame, to minimize your costs and get the property leased again. We will even replace the tenant at no additional cost to you within the first six month’s of the lease.
Our goal is to maximize your income and minimize your expenses. To keep track of your income and expenses we use a centralized accounting system. This all-inclusive accounting and reporting system, backed with itemized statements and tax documentation, keeps all your property management financial information organized in one place. You will even receive regular statements on a monthly basis and a year end report that will make your taxes easier to file.
