Professional Property Management Services
as a boutique property management firm, Action Properties exclusively manages single family homes and Apartments under 75 units. We value the owners that we work with and are selective about the properties that we manage.
5-Point Tenant Background Check
Our tenants are screened for five criteria before they may be approved to live in one of our rentals. These criteria are:
Gross Income-Rent Ratio
Prior Rental History
Thorough Move-In/Move-Out Documentation
As courts continue to become more tenant friendly, the only way to protect the right of the Landlord to charge for damages at tenant move-out is thorough documentation of property conditions. Action strives to take dozens of pictures at move-in/move-out to ensure that there is no gray areas with respect to how a unit was treated during a tenancy.
internet advertising and marketing, Active Prospect Follow Up
In order to cast a large net of exposure for our rentals, Action Properties lists vacant properties on over 25 websites including: Zillow, Realtor.com, Apartments.com, Trulia, and many more. By request and for an additional fee, we can setup rentals to premium listing sites such as apartment guide through our local sales representative.
Once the unit is posted, we follow up with prospects every morning, or within 24 hours of the guest card being received to help get an application. This active prospect follow-up leads to shorter vacancy times and more income for the owner.
Consistent owner reporting
Similar to large corporate accounting offices, our accounting department works on a consistent reporting close schedule which means there is no guessing about when the report arrives.
All of our owner reporting is done electronically via the owner portal. The owner portal also contains archive reports and other important documents. Finally, we send owner distributions via ACH - no need to wait for the mail to arrive with your owner distribution check.
year end 1099 preparation
Pursuant to IRS regulations, Action Properties issues 1099s to our clients for the rental income they received during the tax year. The Form 1099 will be accompanied by a year end cash flow statement.
Additionally, we issue 1099s for vendors who were paid by Action Properties during the tax year to ensure deductions are valid consistent with IRS regulations.
24/7 on-call emergency maintenance
Plumbing leaks and other emergencies often happen during the most inconvenient times - as a result, to give owners peace of mind and provide first-rate service to our tenants, we have 24/7 on-call emergency maintenance services.
online rent payment and MAINTENANCE requests
Tenants of Action Properties can pay their rent online as well as submit online maintenance requests. This service helps increase tenant satisfaction which helps reduce turnover.
Local Vendor Access
As we have been in business since the mid-1980’s we have long standing relationships with contractors, subcontractors, and other vendors. As a result, Action Properties clients receive preferred pricing and most importantly, preferred scheduling.
