One West Properties specializes in rental property management for the Greater Vancouver area. Our Comprehensive Property Management Services include:
One West will strategically market and advertize your property in a manner which focuses on securing the most qualified tenants. We conduct current rental market analysis to ascertain competitive market rental rents in any particular location. We market our properties by a variety of proven and effective means, including ads in the local print media, our stong online presence, both through our website as well as online based ads and ongoing contact with prospective tenants.
One West views tenant selection as one of our most important functions. Our tenant applications are distributed to prospective tenants at the conclusion of appointments to view properties, or are available via our website. Once a completed property rental application is received in our office, the application is screened for credit, rental and/or ownership references, and income.
One West has a network of quality independent contractors that offer reasonably priced and prompt service to ensure that all maintenance issues are dealt with efficiently, with as minimal inconvenience as possible for your tenants. We are also available to deal with tenant and building emergencies on a 24/7 basis through our 24 hour emergency line.
Whenever possible, we ensure monthly rents are collected by means of Pre- Authorized Payment, whereby we automatically deduct the rent directly from each tenant’s bank account on the first of each month. Such a system also allows us to monitor delinquent rents more promptly, thereby ensuring owners are not inconvenienced with cash flow issues.
One West’s computerized accounting system is capable of providing all the reporting you need for tracking income and expenses for your property. A fully detailed cash flow statement is e-mailed to you each month.
Rental Proceeds Remittance:
Net rent proceeds, as reported in the monthly Cash Flow Statement, will be deposited directly into your bank account electronically each month.
Do you require the services of a Professional Property manager?
ASK YOURSELF THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS:
- Do you have experience managing rental property?
- Are you familiar with fair housing and landlord/tenant laws in British Columbia?
- Do you have relationships with contractors to ensure you can get 24 hour service at reasonable prices?
- Do you have a reliable means to determine fair market rent and returns on your investment property?
- Do you have the proper notices and are you aware of the legal process to deal with non-paying tenants?
- Do you have a current, professionally crafted lease and related agreements/forms to minimize your exposure to liability should a tenant sue?
If you answered no to any of these questions, it might be prudent to hire a professional management team. The cost of one bad decision could more than offset the cost of hiring a professional manager to help you avoid the pitfalls of rental property ownership.
As a Property Owner, you may prefer to manage your rental property yourself, but need some assistance in finding the right tenant. One West can assist you by screening potential applicants. During our screening process, we verify employment, rental history, and credit history. You are then equipped to make an informed business decision and place the right tenant to your property.
