The New Property Management

These are only a couple of things to consider. Property management is not an easy job and you want to find someone that has BOTH you and your tenant’s interests at heart. You cannot have one without the other and having just one of them happy will never work.  And since you are dealing with two relationships, communication is doubly important.

What you need is a property management company that values relationships with both landlords and tenants who are top drawer kind of people. There are advantages of hiring the services of a property manager who is selective and proactive.

Key Real Estate Advisors Inc. is well-organized, using the latest technology for property management, and enjoy helping people to succeed. The kind of property manager that wants to help everyone live the New American Dream . Our goal is to build relationships that provide maximum return on your investment an we have the experience and the tools to make it happen!

Return on Investment

At Key Real Estate Advisors Inc. we take property management very seriously. It not only helps the investor to have peace of mind, it plays a very important roll in maximizing the return on the investment. If not done right, a property manager can cost an owner all of their profits for the year. According to an article from the American Apartment Owners Association, The No. 1 Reason Why Real Estate Investments Fail to Generate Returns is due to poor property management.

Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Lehigh Acres and the surrounding area have seen more and more investors purchasing homes for great prices and then turning around and renting them out. As more and more families succumb to the economy and the dramatic reduction of values in their homes, many are forced to walk away creating a whole new market for quality homes to rent and quality tenants.  Property management has never been more important than it is now.

Fort Myers Property Management company

Property Management Company VS Property Management Services

Key Real Estate Advisors Inc. has provided property management for the last 11 years and shortly became known as a premier property management company in Southwest Florida. When in fact we are a Real Estate Investment company that provides property management services and there is a big difference.

As a full service real estate investment company, we help investors from all over the world purchase, sell, and manage investment properties. Our goal is to minimize your expenses and maximize your capitalization rate so you can purchase more properties. In the end we help you grow and we grow as well. We accomplish this in different ways.

What Makes Key Different

Management Fees and Set Up

Fort Myers Rental Property Management Servcies

Since we receive compensation from many different areas, unlike a management company, we do not have to focus solely on the management side to maximize income. Therefore, we can do things a little different to maximize yearly income. For example, there are no set up fees to get your property up and running. We also do not require any mandatory reserves to hold in an account in case of maintenance calls. We also do not have to charge for additional inspections on your investment.

The only management fees we collect are on collected rent and tenant placement. And most importantly, the tenant placement fee is good for one year. So if your tenant leaves for no fault of our own, we will replace that tenant quickly at no charge. Some companies charge every time a tenant goes in no matter what. In that case it would encourage turnover. We eliminate the turnover with our tenant application and screening process. Our main goal is to treat the tenants with respect and do everything we can to make them happy so they will stay for years and reduce turnover.

Accounting Services, Owner Payouts, Statements & Portals

Landlord Payments

Owner Payouts

I do the payout on the 10th of every month. And I also do another payout usually about two weeks after that depending on how the month lays out. A lot of the tenants we deal with get paid bi-weekly. A lot of them are very good about paying their rent on time. However, sometimes life has some unexpected bumps that make it difficult to stay on track. So instead of doing the one payout, we do a late payout as well. Our goal is to make sure that all of your funds are in and accounted for in the month they are due.

When we do the payout, we have two different kind of payments. The first and easiest is an ACH payment. It is not a wire and there are no fees to the owner to do so. All we need is the routing number and the account number for the desired checking account and it goes right in. I tell everyone to expect two business days for the funds to post but it usually takes about 24 to 36 business hours.

The other way is Bill pay. Similar to how you would pay bills on your personal online banking. Sometime an actual check is sent sometime it is placed directly in the bank. It also allows us to make comments on the check. This is especially good for a lot of owners who have retirement accounts they have used to by their rental properties. A lot of the companies only have one account an need notes on where to apply the funds.

Online Portals

Online Owner Portals

Communication is key when it comes to property management. With the property management software that we use, the owners and the tenants will have their own portals which will give them access to the information that is uploaded into the system as well as another way in which we can communicate. Owner portals are very convenient in the fact that you can have access to all of you documents in one easy location.

As an owner, you will have access to all of the leases that are uploaded as well as any invoices for the work that is done. You will also have any documents related to your property such as bills, IRA info, and management agreements. It is web based so you will have access to it from anywhere. You can also contact us and approve any work orders that have been sent to you either from us or from the tenant.

I will email you statements throughout the month on what is going on with your tenants and payments. At the end of the month I will upload the final statement with a summary of all of the transactions for the month into your portal so you will have everything in one place.
