Our Property Management Services

Quality Chapel Hill real estate management is our main goal

As already mentioned, we are a full-service property management company. Our goal is to help with all your rental needs.

That’s because we understand that managing a property can be anything but easy. Among other things, it requires time, experience, and a thorough understanding of the state's tenancy laws.

But luckily for you, you don’t have to have these qualities to succeed. We come highly recommended. Our full suite of services can help you in all aspects of property management!

Some of the property management services we can help owners with include:

Fast Turnaround

We can fill your vacancies in no time. Over the years, we’ve been able to come up with effective marketing strategies that ensure quick filling of vacancies. These strategies are aimed at getting the eyes of quality and dependable renters onto your listings.

We understand that each property is unique. That’s why we pay close attention to details.

We create ads that not only reach as many prospective renters as possible but also create ones that target a specific caliber of tenants. We aim for renters that are responsible and can pay rent on time.

What’s more, we use both online and offline marketing strategies, from listing sites and social media to yard signs and flyers, and everything in between.

Tenant Screening

The screening process is a tricky aspect of self-managing your rental properties. When managing your Chapel Hill, NC real estate investments on your own, you may not be able to know how to properly evaluate rental applications and renter information.

As a result, you may end up renting to an entirely wrong caliber of tenants. That is, those that have a history of paying rent late, causing a nuisance to neighbors, and causing excessive property damage.

At Mark Thomas Properties Property Management, we conduct several tests to ensure we land the right tenant. Our tests include reference checks, criminal record checks, credit checks, and employment verification checks.

We aim to find tenants that are reliable, responsible, and trustworthy. Good tenants, after all, can make all the difference. Basically, they can be the difference between an income that produces handsome returns and one that is a money pit.

Rent Collection

Have you ever managed an investment property before? If so, chances are that you most likely found it to be frustrating and time-consuming. And this is especially true if you didn’t have experience or managed multiple properties.

Tracking down rent payments requires experience. At Mark Thomas Properties Property Management, we can help you save time and prevent stress. How – you ask?

For one, our rent payment solutions are designed to be easy and convenient for renters. Renters can pay online, mail a check to our office, or even sign up for automatic rent payments.

Two, our screening process, as already mentioned, leaves no stone unturned. We go to great lengths to ensure the tenants we rent to are reliable and responsible.

And thirdly, we go through our clients’ leases to ensure they are foolproof. We’ll go over every term to ensure it’s not only detailed, but that it adheres to the state’s tenancy laws.

Maintaining your property on your behalf

What do you think happens when a tenant isn’t satisfied with their rented premises? Of course, they move out, right? And as you probably know, high renter turnover is bad for business.

And guess what? Poor maintenance is usually a common culprit. When you delay or ignore a maintenance request, your tenant can feel neglected and unappreciated. As a result, they won’t rent your unit for long.

We are one of the top Chapel Hill, NC rental companies, and as a result, we have a reliable team of contractors and vendors in our network. These licensed and insured professionals help us ensure our clients’ rentals are well taken care of, which saves you time and money in the long run.

Providing you detailed financial reports and statements

We’ll keep you in the loop regarding how your Chapel Hill, NC rentals are doing. Once you hire us, we’ll provide your log-in details to your online portal from where you’ll be able to view all crucial reports and statements.

This is part of our commitment to being your professional property managers of choice!
