Listen, there are a lot of reasons to be stressed right now. But, your rental property shouldn’t be one of them. 

If you’re finding that you lose a lot of sleep worrying about vacancy, late rent, or property damage, it might be time to hire a property manager in Charleston to take some of that anxiety off your plate. We know there’s a lot for independent landlords to manage when it comes to marketing a vacant property, completing a thorough tenant screening that doesn’t violate any fair housing laws, collecting a security deposit, and staying a step ahead of maintenance needs. You want to protect your investment. You want to earn more money. But, there are only so many hours in a day.

Think of TCS Management as your secret weapon. 

If you’re not already partnered with a management company, consider reaching out for expertise and resources. Not only will your investment property earn more money, you’ll have a less stressful rental experience. 

Here are some of the most important ways that our Charleston property management services can make a difference in your investment goals and your management process. 

Tenant Screening and Managing Residents

One of the most significant advantages to working with us is tenant screening and placement. 

At TCS Management, we understand that good tenants are an essential asset to your investment property, and we work hard to identify them, place them in your property, and then retain them for the long term.  

Finding your own tenant can be risky, especially if you’re not aware of the fair housing laws, the screening best practices, and what you can and cannot say in your marketing materials. Instead of putting yourself at risk for legal pitfalls, you can leverage our knowledge and expertise to screen tenants thoroughly and make sure they are the right fit for your property. 

We have seen all of the red flags that bad tenants carry with them. We know what to look for and what to avoid, and we’re good at combing through: 

  • Credit history
  • Eviction reports
  • Income verification
  • Criminal background checks

We establish a consistent set of qualifying rental criteria that each applicant must meet in order to be approved for your property. We’ll dig into rental histories. Once a tenant is approved and moved in, we will oversee the entire tenant relationship, ensuring that they have an outstanding rental experience and working towards plans for tenant retention. 

Collecting Rents and Enforcing Leases

A lot of rental property owners quickly become stressed over rent collection. When it doesn’t come in on time, you have to contact your tenants. You have to charge a late fee. You have to worry about whether you’ll ever see another rent payment from that tenant again. 

Stressful. 

We take this off your plate. You don’t have to worry about collecting late rent or enforcing the lease because you have professionals who are doing it for you. A good Charleston property management company like TCS Management will have a rent collection in place, and there will also be processes for everything from inspections to accounting to lease renewals and security deposits. 

What if you find that an unauthorized pet is on your property? Suppose a guest has been visiting a tenant for more than a month. What do you do to enforce your lease?

We’ll enforce it for you. Our great tenant relationships make this easy.

Don’t Stress about Maintenance and Repairs 

Rental Property MaintenanceYour rental property is eventually going to need maintenance, even if it’s brand new and even if it’s in great condition. When people live in homes, those homes deteriorate. There’s not a lot that you can do to avoid that. 

We understand the stress and frustration that comes with maintenance. The costs are rising, and you may find yourself waiting longer than you’d like for simple repairs. Labor is in hot demand, and finding a great team of vendors who are licensed and insured can seem daunting. Your tenants are likely getting irritable if you have not responded to their repair requests yet.

You won’t really have to think about maintenance at all when you’re working with TCS Management. We’re prepared to accept and act on maintenance requests, we invest in preventative services to avoid deferred and expensive repairs, and we’re available 24/7 to respond to emergencies. We also have a great team of licensed and insured vendors and contractors who provide a high quality of work as well as competitive prices. 

By partnering with our talented team of property managers, you can expect the condition and value of your property to be protected. We’ll talk to tenants about what we expect from them. We’ll conduct inspections and make reports about what we find. We’ll keep you informed, but you won’t be the one taking calls in the middle of the night or following up on air filter changes. 

As your property management partners, we’ll also recommend updates and upgrades as they become necessary. Whether it’s an appliance that needs to be replaced or some flooring that looks like it’s seen better days, we can talk to you about which updates and renovations will add value and which can wait. 

Paying less for emergency repairs and routine maintenance and knowing that the condition and value of your investment is being protected is a great way to reduce your stress. 

There are so many benefits to working with a Charleston property management professional. Not only do you increase what you earn and take back a lot of your time, you have less to worry about. We’d be happy to hear more about your specific property and to tell you how we can provide you with a less stressful and more profitable rental experience. Please contact us at TCS Management.
