Income-producing real estate has at least two goals—generating predictable revenue and protecting your investment’s value and ROI potential. Professional property management plays a critical role in overseeing tactics and logistics, as well as minimizing your investment risk and optimizing value over time. Whether it's a residential apartment complex, single-family home, or business office—we address the elements that are critical to protecting your investment.
Critical Success Factors
Insurance is one of the most important—and most overlooked—aspects of a successful income-producing property. Location, price, interest rate, and rental costs are important factors, but anything can happen to a property. If the insurance policy does not adequately address current building code standards, catastrophe coverage, or appropriate special coverage as a rental property, its potential ROI can evaporate overnight. We make sure that proper insurance is in place to protect your investment.
Knowing the local and regional rental market includes having a full understanding of rent control policies, ordinances, zoning restrictions, and the status of possible legislation that could impact the property and its rental potential. Our expertise in real estate valuation enables us to propose modifications or structural improvements that would support increased rents while securing long-term residents and minimizing vacancies.
Knowing the loan structure on the property—interest rate, fixed vs. adjustable, and length of term—is essential for maximizing value and return. If market rates decrease, we notify you and provide options. We assess and monitor the property's financial performance to identify opportunities for short-term costs that reap long-term gain.
When appropriate, we create and implement a plan and budget for identified capital improvements that optimize your investment's return. This is not only important to obtaining top-dollar rents and remaining competitive in the market place, it ensures the property is ready to be sold or exchanged if an opportunity arises for achieving an enhanced return.
