Smart Owners Newsletter – April 2017

Weather is getting very nice here in Las Vegas — what does that mean — more HOA violations. We have been flooded with notices about weeds and plants & the never ending request about garbage cans. We are following up on all these violations. PLEASE make sure that you email to [email protected] or fax the letters to the office: 702.974.0191 (fax). THANK YOU!

HOME INSPECTIONS: When a property manager does an inspection on your property, we will attach a quick list on the condition of the property and a few photos of the home, which will be emailed to you.

PROPERTY TURN OVERS: Please if you can assist us in getting at a minimum power and water turned on at the property once a tenant leaves. Water and Power are getting more difficult to deal with as tenants will leave an outstanding balance or other situation —- that these utilities will NOT speak with the management company. ONLY the owner or the tenant.

In addition; we are turning properties as quickly as we can but also making sure the job is done right the first time. Since we are in a very aggressive market in rental condition — we want to make sure that everything is done prior to placing on the market. If your PM contacts you or the Assistant, regarding needing extra funds, please be responsive, you can use a credit card (5% up-charge), wire funds, send a check overnight — bottom line — no money — no work.
