To Manage your Property, Know Your Tenants
This sounds like a simple idea, but you may be surprised how many people go into property management without knowing their tenants as well as they should. Rental property management can often be difficult, and having unreliable tenants will only serve to exacerbate your problems. Performing due diligence on any rental applications is the first step in guaranteeing a smooth process and will make your life as a property owner that much easier.
We go to great lengths to get to know the potential candidates before we decide who we want to be living in your property. Once we have chosen the right people, we stay in contact to ensure that their experience is as enjoyable as it can be. Your goals should be aligned with those of your tenants and maintaining an open relationship is an important piece of the puzzle.
Know Your Trades: Manage your Property
As property managers, you know that problems can arise quickly. Simply having the right tenants in place won’t always guarantee a problem free experience. You don’t ever want to be caught off guard when something goes awry, and that’s why it’s important to know your trades. Whether it be plumbing, electrical, or something as simple as a lock, you don’t want to be scrambling to find the right person at the eleventh hour.
We have relationships all over the province with certified, reliable trades people. This is paramount to managing your property successfully. We find reputable companies with reliable employees who will be able to navigate your issues at the drop of a hat. It’s not always easy to find reliable people, which is why we do our homework to find out what companies offer the best service. Having these longstanding relationships allows us to respond quickly and efficiently, minimizing any damage that can take place. Reliable trades are of great importance to solving any issues you are either unqualified or too busy to perform yourself.
Magnum MY Advantage Program
The MY Advantage Program is an exclusive program we offer to take care of your rental property from the beginning to the end. This program offers property showings, tenant screenings (something we take very seriously), approvals, move-ins, and rent collection. Simply asking us to manage your property offers a peace of mind that you don’t often find when you tackle these things on your own.
Perhaps it’s not a secret, but our attention to detail and quality service is what separates us from the competition. We consider going the extra mile in condo property management to be the bare minimum. All of these factors add up to an experience we don’t think can be matched by anyone on the market. Offering you an end-to-end service is not something everyone does, and it’s no secret we’re proud to offer this service to any and all potential clients.
