How much will your home rent for?
There are many reasons why Northern Virginia Property Management Pros is your number one choice for property management for Fairfax and Arlington Counties. We have a combined experience of 40+ years in the Real Estate Rental Market and have literally helped hundreds of homeowners just like you, who thought there was no hope after their home did not sell.
Not to worry, we have the expertise to get lease rates at the ceiling of the market and provide Un-Matched advertising for each client ensuring the fastest turnaround time to get your house or condo rented for top dollar. We Advertise your home for rent on over 40 top real estate websites, use videos, and we Photoshop high-resolution pictures of your house to get the most income possible for your property.
It depends on the home’s condition, how much you want in rent, and what the local market will support. However, through our Un-Matched advertising, we provide high-quality Northern Virginia tenants in 30 Days or Less on average. Lately, we’ve had a waiting list and it may be a matter of days before securing a qualified tenant for your rental home. If we have a good product (your house) we can stabilize your asset and for a lower cost than any other Northern Virginia property management company or brokerage in the area.
Since we specialize in single family homes and condos we have our finger on the pulse of the market. Between using our own in-house private data, driving the neighborhood, and previous properties that rented in the area, including the specs/condition of your house, we formulate a rental rate that will attract quality tenants in 30 days or less with a full deposit.
No keys will be given out! Unlike other management companies that give tenants the lockbox code or keys, your property will only be shown to pre-qualified tenants by one of our professional leasing agents who has access and in-depth knowledge about your Virginia rental home.
Once the prospective tenant says; “I want to rent this house,” we employ several outside companies to run a credit report, conduct background check, review employment history, rental history, and check local and national sexual offender databases. Once key information is gathered, it’s compiled in our proprietary system and offers recommendations. Upon that recommendation, we enlighten you with our findings to help you make the final decision on your new tenants.
Tenants know that rents are due on or before the 1st of each and every month. The income is collected and posted to your account. As a Virginia real estate owner you will receive a detailed summary report generated and mailed on the 23rd-25th of each month along with a proceed to check.
We have an in-house maintenance division and specialized vendors that are qualified to handle any issue that may arise with the home. We do not mark up parts like other companies, so you receive the best work at the best price should any issues occur.
There is always a risk that your tenant will not treat your home as well as you would. In general, though, damages past normal wear & tear are the exception.
In general, there is not a market for furnished rentals right now.
Tenants typically handle all lawn care and maintenance. We do offer full landscape services to you or the tenant as an option.
No. Make sure to leave the utilities in your name until transferring over to the new tenant when they move in. If you cancel, there is a risk of damage during cold weather (e.g. Plumbing, appliances, sump pumps) and it’s a lot more work getting the utilities turned back own as a “new” service under the tenant’s name.
We strongly recommend that the house be vacant and rent ready at the time the advertising goes out. Statistics show a clean, spacious (furniture-free), rent ready home allows the buyer to see the home at the spur of the moment and envision the home as their own. Being vacant also allows tenants a quick 2-4 week move-in date.
Yes, you should maintain a landlord policy on the property. The tenants can’t carry homeowners insurance since they don’t own the house, but we mandate all tenants to carry renters insurance for personal their belongings. It’s always good to contact your insurance agent and let them know you’re renting the house and make sure you are protected.
Today. It’s never a good thing to wait until the last minute, especially in today’s economy. It’s a perfect time to start lining up prospective tenants.
Unfortunately, there are many agents and brokerages that have ZERO property management experience and definitely don’t specialize in the rental of single family residential homes. A word of caution, they might not be licensed to manage properties.
Northern Virginia Property Management Pros has competitive rates and the most comprehensive service in Northern Virginia. For covering the initial evaluation, pictures, video, professional ad, distribution of that ad to over 40 top targeted websites, showings, tenant pre-screening, and document preparation, our rental commission is equal to the first month’s rent. Most other property management co’s and brokerages charge upwards of 10% or more of the monthly rent, every month! Our monthly management fee is only a flat $99 per month.
We ask you, as an owner, to fund a $500.00 reserve account for any recurring or unanticipated expenses associated with your home (e.g. hot water heater goes out, plumbing issues…).
