5 Key Benefits for Property Owners

While there are dozens of property management companies in Las Vegas we provide owners of rental units with a number of benefits, in addition to overseeing their properties. From finding suitable tenants, to maintaining the property, to handling legal and tax issues; we handle the numerous tasks that are involved with owning and operating rental properties. The following is a list of benefits you will experience when partnering with the Southwestern Management And Realty Team:

Attracting quality tenants – Finding the right tenants as quickly as possible is crucial where any rental property is concerned. This entails effectively marketing your property and screening all prospective tenants thoroughly, to ensure that they are a good fit for your rental community. It is also imperative to find the best quality tenants to lessen the risk of serving a costly eviction, and the time involved to complete the process.

Forms and reports – Depending on the location of your property, the two biggest headaches for any property owner are legal issues and taxes. All property management companies in Las Vegas should be able to help you understand the tax deductions that are available to property owners, while assisting in this process. Additionally, there are numerous reports involved in managing a rental community, including invoices, leasing agreements, property documents and much more. And we provide the organization that is necessary where this is concerned.

Increased tenant retention – Our goal is to increase tenant retention in every rental property we manage, while at the same time keeping vacancies to a minimum. When tenants move out, it triggers a financially and physically draining process that includes changing locks, extensive cleaning, painting, and repairs. Las Vegas property management companies need to focus on improving the tenant retention rate, and shortening vacancy cycles in order to save property owners time and money.

Maintenance and repair issues – As your partner, the Southwestern Management And Realty Team brings the ability to constantly improve and maintain your property, while ensuring that everything is kept in optimum working order. We will also make any upgrades as they become necessary. Our maintenance and repair staff has extensive knowledge of how things work, from installing appliances to repairing roofs. Thus, we have it all covered.

Rent collection system – As a landlord, the way in which you collect rent and late fees from tenants can be the difference between failure and success as a property owner. Collecting rents every month when they are due ensures a consistent cash flow. We make sure that every tenant understands that our system of collecting rents is non-negotiable. Furthermore, we act as the buffer between you and your tenants in order to lessen your stress and worries.

As your partner, the Southwestern Management And Realty Team can alleviate the stress involved with owning and operating a rental community.
