On-Going Communication

Real Property Management makes every effort to keep you informed about your property. 

A secure online account provided by our team keeps you updated on property activity,

including vacancies, leasing, maintenance, inspections and financial reports.  Whether you

live a few blocks from your rental property or hundreds of miles away, you can monitor the

activity of your property from the convenience of your computer, 24 hours a day anywhere

in the world.

In addition to your account, our team of highly-trained staff is here to answer your questions

and work with you to get the best return on your investment.




Thorough Tenant Screening & Selection

Placing the wrong tenant can quickly cost you what you save by managing a property yourself. 

Every tenant application is evaluated based on credit, criminal background, sex offender

registry (where allowed by law), employment verification and residency/rental history. Our

thorough screening complies with all applicable laws, including Fair Housing and Fair Credit

Reporting Act.

When we have found a qualified tenant we schedule lease signing and a move-in condition

assessment with the approved tenant.



Timely Rent Collection

Nothing affects your cash flow more than late or missing rent payments. We collect the rent

every month and deposit it into your account expeditiously.  Our collection processes are

professional but tough, and we are extremely diligent in collecting rent through a systematic,

timely process.

Tenants are offered a variety of ways to pay rent and incentives for paying rent on time, so you can

get your money as quickly as possible. In addition, we treat each tenant respectfully and fairly, as a

positive relationship with a tenant leads to timely rent payments as well as better care for your property.


Cost-Effective, Reliable Maintenance

Maintenance is a necessary expense in owning a rental property, and the return on your investment

can be significantly impacted without timely, cost-effective repairs and upkeep. When handled by us,

you’ll save time and money and ensure repairs are completed in a professional manner, by trustworthy

maintenance personnel.

Each Real Property Management office has an extensive network of contractors, vendors and in-house

staff to handle property maintenance and repair work.  In addition, our exclusive partnerships with

national and local vendors provide the professional level of service to our clients and customers that

has come to be expected



Comprehensive Accounting

Our goal is to maximize your income and minimize your expenses.  To keep track of your income and

expenses we use a centralized accounting system.  This all-inclusive accounting and reporting system,

backed with itemized statements and tax documentation, keeps all your property management financial

information organized in one place.

Real Property Management Coastal VA provides each property owner client a password protected online

account for easy access to financial reports any time you need.

Comprehensive Marketing & Advertising

For each day your property is vacant, that’s money out of your pocket.  Professional management costs are easily offset by shorter vacancy times.  We spend thousands of dollars every month advertising our vacancies to get them filled – faster.  Your property is advertised on high traffic rental and classified websites.  A professional “For Rent” yard sign adds exposure to capture drive-by prospective tenants.   Our experienced leasing agents respond promptly to inquiries and advise prospective tenants on details about the property, and show your home in the best possible light.

Prior to marketing and advertising your rental property, our experts also advise you in two important areas:

  1. Setting a competitive monthly rental rate based on a comprehensive analysis of property

  2. condition, upgrades, school districts, location and access to transportation, and area rental market rates. Getting your home ready to rent faster, to a high quality tenant, by providing recommendations and guidance on how to make your property rent-ready.

Full-Service Leasing

Your leasing agent manages the lease signing with the approved tenant, using our professionally

prepared lease, and ensures that all proper contracts are executed correctly.  At the same time,

rents, deposits and any fees are collected in accordance with local legal and financial regulations,

and recorded in your online account.  We also provide professional tenant education at lease


Finally, the leasing agent and approved tenant conduct a walk-through to document conditions. 

This important walk-through assists in accurately assessing any changes in conditions when the

tenant moves out.

Regular Inspections

Professional inspections of your property both inside and out are beneficial to ensure

tenants are complying with the terms of their lease and to assess property onditions.

Local Real Property Management offices typically conduct move-in, periodic, and

move-out inspections. Documentation and photographs from these inspections assist in determining needed maintenance and repairs to maintain your home’s value and avoid costly repairs if left unattended.

Strict and Compliant Evictions

Even with careful placement there is occasionally a tenant who needs to be evicted. Our staff is

extremely knowledgeable in state and local landlord/tenant laws. If the tenant does not pay rent on time or breaches the terms of the lease, we initiate the proper legal steps necessary, in the fastest possible time frame, to minimize your costs and get the property leased again.

Ask us about eviction protection. For property owners who opt for this plan, the local office will pay for the eviction should it become necessary.
