Why should you have your property professionally managed?

Experienced landlords know the time and care that property management takes and the potential disasters that can occur when it’s not your primary focus.  Abode property management carefully and diligently manages your asset(s) – maximizing financial returns through higher rental rates, low vacancy and turnover time, and by reducing the risk of problem tenants and property damage.  Our team is on-call 24/7 so that you don’t have to be.

How are rental rates set?

Rental rates are established in consultation with our owners using a variety of sources, including our rental rate subscription services, existing portfolio information, and by pulling our own comps from market sources.

What do you do to get my property leased?

As a general statement, turnover costs money (which varies from property-to-property).  Our first aim is to retain quality existing tenants at market rates.  We do that by providing tenants (customers) the same level of customer service as owners.  Additionally, we proactively communicate with existing tenants (as our lease calls for), to ascertain whether a tenant is moving out, so that we have early notice of upcoming vacancy and minimize turn time as best as possible.  We also pride ourselves on our marketing approach, which we believe targets the highest quality tenant from the largest possible audience.
