You may not have thought of yourself as a real estate investor, but the U.S. Government may nudge you in that direction.  There are times when sudden or unexpected PCS orders have you scrambling to sell your home.

There are four likely scenarios that you will run into where you might need to seek out the help of a property manager.

PCS Orders Fort Knox

You received your PCS orders unexpectedly or a quick deployment have left you with no time to prepare and sell your home.

PCS Orders Fort Knox

You have not been able to sell your home, but your new CO needs you to report for duty now.

Your home does not appraise for the amount you need to break even or make a profit.  Worse yet, something may have caused the home to not pass inspections.

PCS Orders Fort Knox

The market has not been kind and your home is not going to bring the money it would under better conditions.

Here are a few more reasons for choosing a property manager.

Whatever the reason you are forced to move before selling your home, one of the best actions you can take is to hire a property manager.  Property managers will take care of your property top to bottom, back to front.  A good property manager will treat your home as if it were their own.  They can help you turn your old home into a new source of income for you.  It can help you nicely at tax time, and serve as the beginning of a nest egg for your retirement.

Do we have a Military Clause for letting people out if PCS orders come?

This is a good section for what makes us special.

Do we offer the military out clause?  What else?

If you can outline the process for Property Management and outline our services, I can actually make another page or two for that and link to them here.  Below is a direct copy of other ones.  Our process is probably similar, but needs to be made our own.


Tenant Screening

Do you really know who is renting your property? Many property management companies don’t thoroughly screen tenants which ultimately ends up cost you more money down the line. We understand the importance of finding great quality tenants. To do this, our property management team has developed an effective way to weed out undesirable tenants to significantly reduce your risk as an investor.

Our tenant screening services include:

  • Complete credit history review
  • National criminal and eviction background check
  • Federal criminal background check
  • Verify their identity to help protect against identity theft
  • Review previous rental history
  • Employment verification
  • Looking for risky tendencies and behavior
  • Debt-to- income analysis

There is no additional charge to you for processing applications as this is paid by the applicant. You can have as many people as you want apply without any extra charge to you! Another way to make things even easier, applicants and can fill out their application online to speed up processing times. Finally, you are given the option to review each application with one of our leasing specialists just to make sure the applicant is a good fit for you and your investment.

Property Maintenance

Protected & Secure

It’s no secret that great homes not only add value but they are key to finding great tenants. This is why our Property Management team has developed an effective approach that will proactively help maintain your property in great condition.


Maintaining rental property is more than just responding to maintenance requests and painting. We believe the best way to protect and secure your investment is by identifying and addressing repairs quickly before they have a chance to cause problems. Not only does this help keep your property in good condition leading to happier tenants, but it helps save you money by addressing issues early on before they become a problem.

Property Evaluations

Checking on your rental periodically not only helps us perform regular
maintenance, it also gives us a chance to interact with the tenant and discuss the importance of maintaining the home. Even though many companies practicing property management do not perform regular evaluations, We feel that it is an integral part in maintaining and protecting your investment. The best part is that this is at no extra cost to you!

We perform evaluations:

  • When we first begin managing your investment
  • With the tenant as they first take possession
  • Three months after the tenant has moved in
  • Nine months into the lease and one a year after that
  • When the tenant moves out of the property

The Tenant’s Role

Our custom lease agreement clearly defines the tenants role and responsibility in maintain your rental. While most property management companies use a standard and generic lease agreement, we created our own based off of years of experience which was then reviewed by our attorney to make sure you are protected. It covers different things like false maintenance requests, annual carpet cleaning, and requiring renters insurance. Contact us and we would be happy to provide you with a sample copy.

Protocol for Maintenance Request

To minimize your expenses as a landlord, we have created policies and procedures on how to handle maintenance requests when they are received from a tenant. The goal is to save both time and money.

Here is a brief overview of our process:

  • General troubleshooting with the tenant
  • Negotiated pricing
  • Coordinating repairs
  • Paying vendors

Pre-screened Vendors

Do you really know who is maintaining your property? We do. In order to provide you with good quality work at competitive prices, each vendor is required to go through a screening process to see if they qualify to be on our preferred vendor list.

During our screening process we:

  • Check for proper licensing
  • Make sure they are insured and bonded
  • Verify that they have competitive pricing & payment terms
  • Interview them one-on- one

Accounting Services

Why take the time to log every payment that is receives and each bill that is paid when you don’t have to? We specialize in financial reporting. Our property management team understands that your time is valuable, so we have made your accounting so easy to review, that you really can’t afford to do it on your own.

Our Accounting Services Include:

  • Rent Collection
  • Recording Expenses
  • Monthly Statements
  • Annual Financial Reports

  • Direct Deposit Into Your Bank Account

We can also make reoccurring payments on your behalf for:

  • Tax Payments

In addition to what is listed above, you will also receive a tax packet at the end of each year which will include everything your accountant needs to file your taxes. You can just sit back and relax knowing that your investment’s finances are being handled by one of the best property management companies.


We begin by discuss your needs as an investor owning real estate and taking care of the initial paperwork to get you started. It usually takes us about three to four business days to get you fully setup in our system but during that period, we are already working our way through the next phase.

Here is a breakdown of what we need to get started:

  • Signed Property management Agreement
  • IRS W9 Form
  • Direct Deposit agreement with voided check or deposit slip
  • Information to make payments towards HOA maintenance fees and  Taxes
  • Copy of a photo ID; driver’s license, passport, or state ID
  • Most recent mortgage statement (only if property has an existing loan)
  • Confirmation of landlord / homeowners insurance
  • All the remotes, keys, transmitters, carport and mailbox information, etc.

This is when we first get a chance to thoroughly evaluate the rental unit. At this stage, we are looking to see if the property needs any improvements or repairs to make sure it’s ready for tenant occupancy. Here we will make sure the property is cleaned and carpets have been clean professionally, evaluate the flooring and paint condition, test all the appliances, check yard cleanliness, and look for any other items which may need attention.

We will then go over the list of recommendations with you to see what items you would like to address.

In the advertising phase, we begin actively looking for your new tenant. Your property will be advertised in a variety of different websites to get maximum exposure for your investment. We will closely monitor the activity on your rental property making sure that we are getting the right kind of activity. If not, we will go over different marketing strategies while provide you with recommendations based off experience and our knowledge of the market. With our proven marketing methods, your unit will be leased in no time.

This is our area of expertise. Each tenant will be thoroughly screened with a review of their credit history, criminal background check, multi-state eviction check, review previous rental history, and verifying their employment. During this process, we are looking for patterns and red flags to help weed out poor applicants. Our goal is to find you a well quality tenant so that you can maximize your return while reducing your risk. The best part here is that we include you during this process where you can set certain criteria and we can even review the application with you so that you can approve them to rent your home.

After locating a well-qualified tenant, we will make everything official and have them sign our customized lease agreement which was drafted and reviewed by our attorney. Instead of using a standard lease agreement like most other property management companies, we have put one together which offers you more protection as the property owner. This is to ensure that we minimize as much risk as possible for you and your family. During this phase, we will meet tenant one on one to discuss the lease agreement making sure that the tenant understands their responsibilities and obligations. We also make sure that we collect the security deposit at the time. This way if they don’t end up taking the property, you can retain a portion of the deposit to cover any losses you may have incurred while the property was taken off the market.

We feel strongly that a well-informed tenant helps make a great tenant. This is why we arrange to meet the tenant in order to perform a move-in evaluation and orientation at the rental property. Here we will go through the property alongside the tenant documenting the unit’s condition and checking for any last minute items that need attention. In addition, we will go over some basic home maintenance tips and demonstrate how to operate the appliances. For tenants just moving to the area, we also take the time to go over different things they may see or experience such as weather, types of insects to look out for, and proper yard maintenance. While this is not something that is done by most property management companies, we feel that this is an important step to building a long term tenant relationship. Not only does this help inform tenants about their maintenance responsibilities, but it also increases tenant retention because it gives us a chance to develop report and trust.

Tenants will be required to pay rent by the first of the month and considered late on the second.  The sooner we are able to collect and process the rent, the sooner we can initiate our monthly rent distributions. Part of our rent collecting process is to follow up on past due rent in order to try and collect. Our goal is to minimize the need to initiate eviction proceedings as much as possible, but from time to time if we are unable to gain cooperation from the tenant, then we will take the necessary steps to protect your interest. Of course we will keep you informed every step of the way and ultimately you have the final decision whether or not we proceed forward with filing an eviction request with the court.

Once the rent has been paid, we go ahead and initiate payment for any outstanding bills. This includes any repair bills, paying for monthly yard or pool service, making payments towards HOA maintenance fees, processing your Tax payments, etc. Once the bills have been processed, we then initiate your monthly rent distribution. We will make sure that you will have online access to all bills that were paid so that they can be downloaded for your records, if needed.

We strongly believe that you deserve to be informed about what is going on with your investment property. This is why we offer 24 / 7 online access to your account information. From running your own financial reports to downloading copies of invoices, everything will be available at your fingertips. In addition to being able to access your information online, we will also send you monthly states and year-end tax information.

A key to a long term landlord-tenant relationship is providing a quality product. With our years of experience, our property management team has found that well maintained homes results in happier tenants. This in turn results in tenants staying the property longer which maximizes your return as investor. Fewer vacancies will mean less money coming out of your pocket. We offer 24 hour access for tenants to submit maintenance requests either online or by phone. This includes immediate response to emergencies such as a water leak where time is of the essence.

The only way to really know what is going on at your property is to physically stop by to check on it. This is another service that is often neglected by other property management companies, but we have found it to be a very beneficial part of our management process. It not only gives us a chance to make sure the tenant is keeping everything in order, but we also get an chance to check for possible differed maintained such as water leaks that may have gone unnoticed by the tenant. Our property management team will evaluate your unit at one a year, or more frequently depending on the level of service selected. Not only do we get an opportunity to see the property, but it is another opportunity for us to build stronger tenant relations in order to increase the changes that they will stay in your property even longer. This is another great way to help minimize your risk and maximize your returns.

While we work extremely hard to find you the best qualified tenant, every now and then a problem tenant will emerge. Despite how someone may look after performing a thorough background screening there is always a slight risk that things will not work out. Fortunately, we are prepared to respond to problematic tenants to help correct the problem. In many cases, we are able to turn bad behavior around and make a bad situation into a good one through years of experience in negotiation and conflict resolution. It starts by providing the tenant with information on what needs to be corrected and going over the steps which they can take to improve the situation. This helps us resolve the problem while providing the tenant with the knowledge to prevent it from happening again.

We do everything in our power to keep tenants in your rental property as long as possible; but inevitably, all good things must come to an end. During final move-out phase, our goal is to get the property back quickly and in great condition which allows us to minimize the amount of time the property is vacant. To ensure a smooth transient, our property management team will work with both you and the tenant every step of the way making sure that both parties are informed and know what to do and expect. When the tenant is ready to move, we will send out a team member who has been trained specifically to thoroughly document and review the unit’s condition of your investment alongside the tenant. Once we have possession of the home, we will compare the move-in and move-out evaluation reports to check for any repair items that the tenant may be responsible for before refunding any of their security deposit.

When performing the final move-out walkthrough alongside the tenant, we are making note of recommended maintenance items which may need attention before your next tenant moves-in. Based on experience, our team will review this information with you giving you an opportunity to make an informed decision on what improvements will be done to the rental unit. Upon your approval, we then help coordinate all the approved repairs quickly and efficiently while evaluating the work once they are complete. After checking on the work, verify that it’s complete and the rental unit is ready for the next tenant, our property management team will begin marketing the rental property meanwhile repeating the management process.
