Company Description

Rent the District is a boutique property management firm based in the city we love and call home, Washington, DC. At Rent the District, our goal is to provide top quality service to both owners and renters alike.

The Washington, DC rental market can be intimidating to navigate, both for renters and for owners of income properties. Rent the District was founded to help owners enjoy the income from their DC apartments or homes without the hassle of leasing and managing, and to help connect renters with the DC rental they can call home.

The Rent the District Difference

Rent the District is different. We are not brokers or agents- we are property managers and nothing but property managers. Because we focus all our energy on managing Washington, DC rental properties, we can offer quick, caring, and reliable customer service to all our clients. You won't be lying awake on winter nights, wondering if your tenants will wake you up with news that their pipes have burst- Rent the District can handle any emergency and we'll do it with the same care and urgency with which you would treat your own home.

Personal Service Every Time

When our clients call us, they aren’t calling a large organization, with five buttons to press before talking to a real person. Instead, they will speak with a representative right away and have their inquiries answered immediately.

We Negotiate Regulatory Minefields - So You Don't Have To

As experts on the legislative and regulatory standards for DC landlords, we can ensure that the owners we work with are earning great, legal income from their rental properties. Why spend your time dealing with inspectors, waiting on paperwork, or visiting government offices when we can handle all that for you?

We Offer High-Tech Solutions and Peace of Mind

We have a high-tech interface for both owners and tenants so that rent payments, maintenance requests, and owner payments can be handled easily and efficiently online. Our 24-hour service guarantee and 24/7 emergency line give owners the peace of mind of knowing that they won’t be receiving late-night calls from panicked tenants.

Our Fees are Straightforward

Our fees are straightforward and low compared with other property management companies. We can offer great value because our technologically advanced systems allow us to spend less time behind the scenes and more time directly serving clients and tenants. Our Leasing and Marketing Fee is 80% of one month's rent as long as it accompanies a property management contract. For comprehensive property
management services we charge 8% of each month's rent (minimum $200). If you prefer to find your own tenant, that is fine with us - we can manage already leased properties for the same 8% rate, and you can save the cost of the Leasing and Marketing Fee. We also offer free comparative market analyses to help new income property owners determine the value of their rental.

We Know D.C.

As current homeowners and former long-time renters in Washington, DC, we are not only intimately familiar with the city but also knowledgeable about the needs of both owners and renters. Anyone who owns or lives in a home that we manage is our client, and we treat our clients like family. Contact us and find out!
