INSPECTIONS & REVIEW:
Our main job is to protect your investment property. We make frequent drive-by inspection tours of your property. The owner may request an annual, two or three year home inspection report. The home inspection report is the same type of report that is performed at the time Investors Choice Property Management first started managing the property.
Tenants are always notified in writing of pending property inspections. Inspections are conducted with the tenant present, using the property condition report that was executed by the tenant upon move-in. We compare for discrepancies, missing items, and any damage. At the same time we also check for preventive maintenance items.

Maintain good cooperative relationships with owners & tenants alike, to insure the positive operation of the property. Prompt response and follow-up to all questions, concerns or complaints, with a 24-hour emergency telephone service.
