Property Management - Unfurnished
PROPERTY MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Sedona Elite Properties Management Inc. represents personalized quality service. As a full service property management firm we are very committed to assisting you to capitalize on the benefits of your investment through dedicated management of your property.
Signing our Contract
We ask that you sign a 1 year contract and supply us with a $250.00 repair fund. Should either party wish to terminate the contract, they may do so with a 30 day written notice, and there is no penalty.
We Evaluate the Property to be Rented
We first go out and inspect property. We want to view all of the home's amenities, so that we can share the information with potential renters. If we feel that any additional items need special attention or repair, we will supply you with a "punch list". We both agree about those items that need to be remedied and we then move into action.
Researching the Market
We thoroughly research the current market to insure that your rental is falling in line with current rental rates. We then sit down with you and decide upon the appropriate rental rate to begin advertising your property.
We showcase your property on our web-site; www.SedonaEliteProperties.com, with vivid pictures and a narrative description. The website is updated daily. This allows us to market your property to not only local residents, but to all who wish to relocate or vacation in beautiful Sedona from anywhere in the world. We advertise weekly in the local paper, the "Red Rock News" on the front page of Friday's "Scene". Three map guides; the "GPS Ranger" and map at the Sedona Chamber of Commerce, Map Guide & Directory of Sedona Sites and Street Map & Road Guide Sedona. We have a full color page ad in the "Red Rock Rewards". In addition, we post our rentals at the weekly REALTOR® - MLS meetings in Sedona, where we are able to network with numerous agents in our field. Often these agents will refer a client looking for a rental property to us and we provide a referral fee. We will also place "For Rent" signs on the property. We also have brochures at the Sedona Chamber of Commerce and are active members.
Showing the Property
We first ask potential renters to drive by the property to make sure it is in a neighborhood they like and to see the outside of the house.
Qualifying the Prospective Tenant
We ask them to fill out a credit application, we obtain a copy of their DL and then run a credit check, eviction check, and criminal history check. In addition we ask for proof of income and will obtain a prior landlord verification.
Deposits for Tenant's
We ask for a security deposit usually equivalent to the 1st months rent, however, it is strictly for damages and can not be used for rent. We ask for a cleaning deposit which is determined by square footage and a pet deposit of $300.00 per pet.
We ask each tenant to fill out a "move-in report" and to make any notations that are either "wear or tear" or "need repair". This is handed in 5 days after move-in. In addition, we take pictures of the property prior to tenant move-in. Consequently, when they move-out we pull their move-in sheet and can identify quickly what they are, and are not responsible for. In addition, we take pre move-in pictures.
Maintenance and Repairs
Should the tenant encounter any type of problem we ask them to contact us immediately. We have a list of professionals and handymen that can remedy the situation. We charge NO fee for this service. The professional’s or handyman's fee for labor and materials only – we do NOT markup the service, and this would be reflected on your next’s month property reports. At the same time this allows us the opportunity to see the inside of the premises and report back to you.
We do monthly drive bys of all properties. Full Periodic Inspections are recommended twice a year while a tenant is in residence. They are $47.50 per visit.
We believe strongly that the tenant obtain renters insurance to protect their possessions inside the dwelling as the Owners insurance only covers the outside dwelling.
We are pleased to make available to the convenience of Electronic Direct Deposits. The sign up is very simple and easy. The sign up is simple and costs you absolutely nothing, other than a moment of your time. All you have to do is fill out a Credit Authorization Agreement, sign and date it and attach a voided check ( if you are requesting your funds to be deposited into a checking account or a deposit slip (if you are requesting your funds to be deposited into a savings account.
