2. Property Marketing

Domain Property Management knows that vacancies have a considerable effect on rental properties as well as their overall profitability. Property that is left vacant is more prone to risks and damage from outside factors. A vacant property requires exerting efforts to find tenants while continuing with payments on mortgage, utility, and other financial obligations.


To boost your occupancy rate, our property management marketing experts will tailor promotional services like campaigns to the needs of your investment property when targeting the local real estate market. Our property managers want to attract renters who will stay long-term. 

 

Our professional team intends to reduce turnover rates to avoid disruptions in your cash flow. Among our advertising strategies are online listings, signage, and social media marketing. We use a mix of traditional marketing techniques and take advantage of online platforms to maximize your rental home’s exposure.

3. Lease Agreements

We cannot emphasize enough how essential a solid rental contract is in your rapport with your tenants. A lease agreement helps protect both parties' rights as well as your livelihood by ensuring compliance with state and local laws.


When you work with Domain Property Management, we will handle the creation, review, and enforcement of leasing agreements. We will create professional, comprehensive, and legally compliant lease agreements. Our lease agreement services do not stop there; we also handle lease signings and ongoing lease management, such as renewals, revisions, and terminations.

We will be the middleman and mediate any conflict between you and your tenants. Our property management company has property manager expertise in handling lease violations, property upkeep issues, and tenant complaints. But, as much as possible, we facilitate smooth communication and promote adherence to the lease terms and conditions.

4. Move-In Inspections

We understand how demanding turnovers are, that’s why our property management team will oversee move-in inspections. They are trained to spot even the simplest issues that could blow up into major headaches.

Our property management team will identify and address issues promptly to ensure that the rental is ready for occupancy.  This demonstrates our dedication to ensuring a safe and comfortable dwelling place for your renters. 

We will use a customized checklist to document all details no matter how small to avoid disputes on security deposit refunds. We take photos as evidence and use them as a baseline when comparing the property’s condition when the tenant moves out.

5. Regular Property Inspections

Aside from move-in inspections, we also schedule mid-lease inspections. We provide advance notice to tenants and conduct inspections at their convenience. These inspections are done to check if all amenities and electrical appliances are in working order. 

Our property management company also takes this opportunity to evaluate if the investment property is being taken care of and note any lease violations. This is part of our proactive approach to maintaining the value of your investment and ensuring consistent cash flow.

6. Rent Collection with Online Payments

Collecting rent requires direct involvement with tenants and during the process, emotions can come into play. That’s why rent collection calls for property manager expertise with legal requirements, local regulations, and effective approaches.

If you are unfamiliar with these, you may find it difficult to handle the rent collection process properly. Mistakes or oversights in rent collection procedures may result in financial loss or legal disputes.

When property owners partner with us, we optimize the benefits of online payments to streamline your rent collection procedure. Integrating online payments on the portal promotes on-time payments and reduces the chance of lost or late payments. Our goal is to maintain a consistent stream of monthly income by using our online rent collection solution.

7. Maintenance and Repairs

Managing your rental business requires the coordination and supervision from a property manager. Our years of existence in the real estate industry allowed us to form partnerships with reliable service providers and contractors who can address any problems  or maintenance requests that occur before, during, and after the tenancy.


We can ensure that your property is constantly well-maintained and that repairs are completed on time by utilizing a network of reliable contractors. Our local service providers are cost-effective and professional, allowing you to save money on your investment property while keeping your tenants happy.
