SCPM is on call 24/7 to handle all maintenance calls and emergencies. Due to the high volume of properties we manage and the relationships we have built with selected vendors, we have negotiated pricing discounts which are passed directly to our clients. Our property managers are trained to troubleshoot maintenance issues before dispatching a vendor. Furthermore, if it is discovered the cause of the maintenance call was due to tenant negligence, we will invoice the tenant for reimbursement.
Property inspections are crucial to ensure we provide superior service while looking out for our clients best financial interest. We perform 3 different types of property inspections (Move in, Semi Annual and Move out) to document the condition of the property throughout the tenancy. Each inspection is a detailed report consisting of photos and a written document recording the condition of the property. These inspections provide comfort to our clients knowing their home is being maintained and the tenants are being held accountable.
SCPM works closely with our clients to ensure we maximize the rent that can be charged on each rental property. We provide a comprehensive Rental Analysis Report which analyzes the size of the home, amenities the property has to offer, year built, neighborhood and other comparable properties that have recently rented or are active on the market.
