American Protection Group offers a comprehensive range of residential property management services aimed at protecting property owners’ investments through meticulous care, attention and high-quality customer service.
Our Residential Property Management Services
At APG, we offer services that cover every aspect of residential property management, from preparing for tenants and ensuring the property is well-maintained, to handling rent collection and evictions. Outlined below is a closer look at the services we offer.
Tenant Screening And Selection
American Protection Group’s tenant screening and selection process helps property owners avoid the costs and difficulties caused by selecting the wrong tenant. Each tenant’s application will be evaluated based on credit, employment verification, sex offender registry (where permitted by law), rental history and criminal background.
These evaluations are carried out in strict accordance with applicable laws, including the Fair Housing and Fair Credit Reporting Act. Once qualified tenants are identified and approved, our team will schedule the lease signing and move-in condition evaluation.
Missing or late rent payments can have a significant negative impact on the cash flow of the property owner. APG’s professionals collect and deposit the rent into the appropriate accounts in a timely manner, monthly.
APG’s collection processes are professional and diligent yet respectful, treating tenants fairly to foster positive relationships that encourage more timely rent payments and better care for the rental property. We can also help develop incentives for on-time payments and alternative methods of paying the rent to facilitate speedy payment.
The goal of residential investment property owners is to minimize expenses while maximizing income, and this philosophy governs everything APG does when managing accounting.
Centralized accounting systems are used to track income and expenses with itemized statements and comprehensive tax documentation. We provide property owners with easy access to a range of useful financial reports that can aid in decision-making.
Rental properties must be properly maintained to protect the owner’s investment; timely and cost-effective repairs have a significant role in ensuring optimum conditions throughout the property. We evaluate incoming maintenance calls to validate the need for service and offering tenants solutions for simple repairs where appropriate to keep costs down. APG’s team can ensure repairs are completed professionally and cost-efficiently by contractors known for providing high-quality work and service.
Marketing And Advertising
Every day a property or unit is vacant results in lost potential income. APG’s service costs can be offset by the shorter vacancy times gained through our strategic advertising and marketing approaches that attract desirable tenants and showcase properties in the best possible light.
Onsite Residential Property Security Services
APG is a national leader in residential security. We offer services such as 24-hour monitoring, grounds patrolling, access control, alarm monitoring and security consulting, making it easy to find the right combination of services to suit the needs of the property.
Our property managers create an emergency preparedness plan that is customized to meet the needs of the property. It will address measure ranging from preparing for extreme weather, ,safety surrounding amenities, such as swimming pools, to reducing break-ins and vandalism ensuring the protection of tenants and owners’ investments.
APG carries out regular evaluations of residential properties, assessing units inside and out to ensure tenants remain in compliance with their lease terms and that the property’s condition is maintained. Move-in, move-out and periodic evaluations with documentation and photographs can be used to determine maintenance needs and prevent the need for expensive repairs. These evaluations may also prove useful in resolving any tenant issues that arise.
The experts at APG are able to help property owners establish competitive rental rates based on a comprehensive analysis of the property’s location, condition, transportation access, school districts and amenities. In addition, our team can provide recommendations on how to ensure every property is rent-ready, quickly.
Unfortunately, some lease agreements end with an eviction. APG’s staff is well-versed in the relevant local and state landlord and tenant laws and is prepared to initiate the correct legal steps to quickly evict tenants who fail to pay their rent on time or breach terms of the lease. This allows for the property to be leased again in the shortest time possible.
