Best Property Management Services
What does a property management company do?
The best property manager delivers from beginning to end.
Our job goes beyond renting your property. It starts with finding the perfect tenants for your property. We then manage your property, collect rent, and make sure it is well maintained.
When the current tenants vacate the property, we start the process again to get it rented as fast as possible, so that you keep getting paid on your investment property. We start the process 30 days before the tenant leaves to reduce vacancy as much as possible.
Our property management services even include the process and cost of the eviction process + finding a new great tenant—although our tenant vetting and screening process is so scrupulous that very few of our clients have had to resort to eviction.
We run ads that target specific needs depending on the location of your property. We highlight a price point that validates quality tenants. We post to over 30 websites, send it out to a prospective tenant database, and work hard to get your property rented as quickly as possible.
More importantly, we screen each and every one of the tenant applicants to ensure the best match for your property.
The tenant screening process
Once a tenant contacts us, we start the screening process. We base it on an analysis of credit history, employment history, and background checks.
Once the prospective tenants pass the screening process, we schedule a showing. Our system ensures that we only interact with highly qualified leads who are actively interested in your property.
We also provide prospective tenants with access to their dedicated property manager so they can get answers to any questions they may have about the property. It’s best for everyone if tenants know beforehand exactly all the features and aspects of the property as well as the requirements expected of them. We want them to have all the information about a property rather than face unwelcome surprises after the lease is signed. This is why we have a tenant orientation with each tenant prior to move-in to make sure they understand how to take care of the property like their own.
What is the best tenant?
The best tenant is one who pays on time, doesn’t cause any problems, and doesn’t leave the property before the end of the lease. It is also the tenant who is considerate of their community and takes good care of the residential property.
A comprehensive lease
If your lease isn’t up to date with current laws and clear in laying out expectations, you could encounter problems. That is why our attorney has crafted solid lease agreements that are designed to prevent problems before they could ever arise.
We are there when the tenants move into your property
We work by collecting the security deposit, doing a pre-move-in inspection, and carefully highlighting issues or problems that could arise with the property. Our goal is to place tenants who understand and appreciate the required care needed to maintain your property.
Sometimes evictions are inevitable, despite our immense efforts and extensive experience in placing valuable and dependable tenants.
However, eviction is not our immediate response to problems occurring with tenants. We first try to resolve disagreements, thus ensuring that you keep your existing renters—and the property profitable.
However, we are acutely aware that tenants may try to take advantage of our resolution efforts. In such cases, we start the eviction process because we know your property deserves better.
We know the legal process of evictions
Here at Keyrenter, we understand the legal process and nuance to evicting properly, quickly, and easily. We file the appropriate paperwork, represent your interests in court, and ensure that both you and your property are protected.

How Our Property Maintenance Works
We take care of your home to maximize its profitability
A major part of our services concerns your property’s maintenance.
Ignoring small leaks or mold under the sink is unacceptable to us because they can lead to considerable problems further down the line.
We take care of your property as if it were our own. We want to keep giving you returns for years to come. And the best way for a property to be profitable is if it is well maintained.
What does maintenance entail?
As long as a house is lived in, maintenance issues will occur. Air filters need replacing, leaks must be fixed, gutters must be cleaned, and knobs and electric switches have to be tightened.
Our maintenance process
We streamline the maintenance experience for you and your tenants. We do this by providing a space for the tenant to log into our online portal to describe their maintenance request so we can diagnose the issue, and get one of our trained technicians to the property right away.
Our regular inspections matter
Since we also keep inspection notes, we’ll know which issues are caused by tenants or are property-specific ones. Thanks to our routine inspections, we catch any problem from the beginning, before it can simmer into a serious issue. That way, your property doesn’t lose its value.
Our skilled and experienced maintenance crews
Finding maintenance crews who don’t overcharge and do a great job can be hard. That’s why Keyrenter curates a list of qualified and vetted specialists and technicians to help keep your property in great condition.
When something goes wrong, we don’t cut corners. Your property is an investment and we treat it as such. Our team will ensure your tenants are cared for by the best experts and that your property stays profitable no matter what.
Maintenance matters to everyone
It matters to property owners
A well-maintained property will deliver for years. Even when the current tenants leave, the new ones will certainly appreciate a house that looks well-maintained, clean, and well taken care of.
It matters to tenants
Tenants are bound to stay longer in a rental property if it is maintained regularly and properly. Happy and satisfied tenants will take better care of your property and will be more careful and conscientious with its upkeep.
Personal Unmatched Service
Keyrenter Property Management is unmatched in the level of service provided to those who trust us to take care of their homes.
