The following are some of the property management services you can expect by working with us.

Tenant Screening

This is an important process for any landlord. When you screen prospective tenants, you’re able to maximize your chances of landing a great renter. However, for you to get the desired results, you need to have the right skills and experience.

DIY landlords often struggle with tenant screening for three main reasons.

Some DIY landlords only screen tenants on the surface level. For instance, only qualifying tenants based on their income and employment status. Others fail to screen tenants at all. Some landlords simply resort to renting their property to any tenant that comes along. Rarely, they fail to abide by the relevant laws. This results in legal complications.

Graf Property Management will never make mistakes. Between our staff members, we have a combined experience in managing rental properties spanning several decades. We will screen all prospective tenants thoroughly to ensure you land the perfect renter.

Some of the things we look for when screening tenants include income level, creditworthiness, employment status, and criminal background.

Property Marketing

A vacant property is never profitable. If you have difficulty renting out your property, Graf Property Management has your back.

Finding a quality tenant to rent your property depends on a variety of factors, including whether your property is rent-ready and where it’s located.

We market vacant rentals extensively for a broader reach. We use marketing avenues such as social media, rental listing sites, and local classifieds, among others.

Leasing Agreements

Experienced landlords understand the importance of a lease agreement in protecting their interests. Even after renting to a quality tenant, it’s still important that you hold a tenant accountable to the terms of the lease.

For example, you’ll want to let a tenant know about the notice requirements when it comes to terminating a lease. This will help avoid surprises and give you the much-needed time to find a replacement tenant.

Also, letting a tenant know about things like when and where they are supposed to pay rent, as well as the amount for late fees and the grace period, can help avoid potential conflicts and disagreements.

Graf Property Management will help you draft a solid lease.

Move-In Inspections

Graf Property Management always documents a property’s condition before a tenant can move in. We use a checklist to document everything, including interior and exterior conditions. The documentation process includes taking videos and photos.

After we’re done with the process, we then ask the tenant to sign the inspection documents to ensure everyone is on the same page. The move-in inspection checklist comes in handy when a tenant is looking to move out.

We use the checklist to check whether the tenant has caused any damage to the unit. If they have, we ask them to do the repairs before moving out. If they don’t, we make appropriate deductions to their deposit to make the fixes, thereby protecting your property’s value.

Regular Property Inspections

Move-in inspections aren’t the only inspections Graf Property Management carries out. We also carry out other regular inspections such as, seasonal inspections, drive-by inspections, and move-out inspections.

We use these to identify issues early and fix them before they become serious and impact the unit.
