We Know Landlords.
Renting a home the wrong way can be a nightmare. Between uncertainty with future rent income and unexpected capital improvements around the corner, the emotional toll often bugs you day and night – like a thorn in your side that never goes away.
You need a property manager who understands the business. A manager who will take care of your property through on-time maintenance, who will care for tenants without hurting the bottom line, and who will uphold the letter of the lease to ensure you are always protected. Rest easy, as this is much more than a house, this is your future, and your future is our business.
The Three Most Important Questions to Ask When Interviewing a Property Manager
Average Days on the Market
You want to know if the agent who is about to list your home truly understands marketing. Do they have the skills and abilities to actively pursue a tenant to rent your home? Or will they just list it on the MLS and wait. Ask what the average days on the market is, as a great interview question to find out what kind of management company you’re dealing with.
You want to know if the tenant who is being placed in your home has been adequately vetted. Credit report? Paystubs? That’s just the beginning. They listed no pets, but their Facebook profile says otherwise. They provided a complete address history, but their drivers license issue date, and the address on the license don’t match up with their history statement. They said they have had little Fido for six years, but the vet hasn’t seen the poor guy in five. Tenant screening is so much more than a FICO score, call Sherlock Holmes.
Average Tenant Retention
Vacancies cost you money. You want to keep your tenants happy, so they renew, so you don’t have costly vacancy periods. You want a property management company with a high tenant retention, meaning, tenants are satisfied with their living environment. A happy tenant will result in on-time rent, a reduction in violations, and lease renewals year after year.

Will looked over the house and clearly identified its strong and weak points as viewed by potential buyers. That was very useful because our tastes aren't necessarily those of the average buyer. Will suggested several improvements and we made most of(...)

I am not one to do reviews, however, with the EXCEPTIONAL service I received from Belair Realty I felt nothing less than compelled to write one right away and it has not been a full 24 hours since my house has gone to closing. Will was recommended to me by a previous realtor I worked with, due to the uniqueness of my situation. I relocated due to a job transfer and(...)

Will helped me to short sell my home in Baltimore after a divorce.

We had a very difficult real estate experience until we met Will Stein, attempting to short sell our house in a terrible market, dealing with banks that dumped our mortgage, refused to approve things on time, resulting in several sales falling through, etc. Will entered into this process near the end of a nearly three year process and helped us to sell our house in(...)
