After our most sucessful year in the property management business in over 23+ years, we continue to expand and improve our busness in 2013. We are looking to add more nice rental properties and add to our list of satified clients. Some clients have been with us for 20+ years and we are happy to provide you references. Scroll down and submit the online form or just call 812-360-3460 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We specialize in helping current landlords who are tired of the headaches and worry inherent in being a landlord. Also we are helping more and more "accidental landlords", those who have been unsucessful in selling their home due to a slow real estate sales market and are looking to lease out their home, perhaps on a shorter term basis to help with cash flow with the ongoing expenses of owning a home that is not selling. We have and will work with your REALTOR if you home is currently on the market for sale. Some local agents refer their clients to us since they know we have the knowledge, expertise and experience in managing homes that are not selling. Contact us for more info.

Property Management Services:
ü Market the property to prospective tenants by utilizing some of the best media:
o www.bloomingtonrentals.org Launched in 2008, is the best rental site in town that presents your property and attracts lots of visitors who often sign up and receive emails whenever we add a rental property that meets their criteria. Few if any other companies do this locally. Our site blasts our listings all over the web like Zillow, Trulia, Yahoo Real Estate, Hotpads, and many more so your rental will get noticed. We are good at attracting attention! We are Craigslist specialists too and our ads get hits and generate prospects.
o Mass e-mails to hundreds of Bloomington area REALTORS who often have clients looking for rentals.
o Eye-catching yard sign if appropriate. Sometimes you may not want your neighbors knowing your house is for rent.
ü Inspect the property prior to and after occupancy and ready property for lease. We make suggestions to best make your property desirable and attractive to tenants.
ü Prudently select all tentants to reduce tenant turnover and default, but you make the final decision to accept the tenant or not. We screen them with credit, criminal, sex offender, and terrorist list background checks
ü Prepare, negotiate and obtain signed lease from tenant and forward to owner for review. We customize our leases, lease terms and so on to satisfy both you and the tenant.
ü Collect rents and security deposit to be deposited in our escrow account.
ü Send monthly reports to owner accounting for all funds received and dispersed.
ü Send a monthly check or we can make a deposit in a local bank for you if you prefer and then email the deposit slip and statement. (we are going to online payments soon!)
ü Arrange for routine and/or emergency maintenance and repairs utilizing our trusted and reasonable priced maintenance people at a discounted hourly rate plus materials for non-emergency repairs.
(This service alone saves you LOTS of money each year on maintenance costs)
ü Provide a 24 hour per day, 7 days a week emergency phone monitoring service for available for prospective tenants calling in for information, current tenants and owners. We are always available via text, phone and emails with our Iphones
ü Conduct Move-Out Inspection and return security deposits or deduct for damages based on analysis of vacated condition and per the State statutes. We are familiar with the landlord/tenant laws and City ordinances to help keep you out of trouble.
How are we different than other management companies?
ü We do not cater mostly to undergraduate IU students like so many other management companies. We do have a few student rentals, but our focus in on houses and condos not in student housing areas.
ü We do specialize in Bloomington’s finest houses, condos and executive homes, some of which remain in the market for sale or we seek lease with option to buy tenants.
ü We are professionals, yet offer personal service with clear and consistent communication. via voice, email and text based on your preferences. People enjoy doing business with us! Some clients have been with us for over 25 years. References available upon request too.
ü Not only can we effectively manage your property, we can also professionally market your property to prospective purchasers. Few other companies can effectively do this but we can! We give you options and offer innovative solutions that few if any other local real estate companies can. If your property is currently listed for sale, we can work with your listing agent sa we are also members of the Bloomington Board of Realtors.
Our Management Fees:
