Property Management is the Core of Step One Realty's full service offering

Marketing Your Rental Property

  • A "For Rent" sign will be placed on the property with calls directed to our property managers.
  • Prospective tenants will be personally escorted by licensed real estate agents for showings.
  • A secure lockbox will be placed on or near the property's front door.
  • Most importantly, all prospective tenants will be professionally screened for credit worthiness, past evictions, income verification, and criminal convictions.

Managing the Property

  • Our managers will make regular visits to the property to ensure the tenants are properly maintaining the property.
  • Rent proceeds payments are sent via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) to the owner once the funds have cleared the bank. Payments are usually sent before the 15th of the month when rent is received on-time.
  • Owners can access our online portal for financial statements.  Broker will also send monthly statements via email.
  • While a property is vacant, broker will keep utilities activated to maintain proper temperature/humidity.
  • A nominal repair reserve fund will be established and maintained for each property.
  • Broker maintains an escrow for security deposits, pet deposits, and advance rents.
