Answers to your common questions
Do you coordinate Property Maintenance and Repairs?
Advantage Gold Realty handles all requests for maintenance and repairs. We coordinate all maintenance
and repairs utilizing our in house Maintenance Company as well as outside Vendors. We will contact
the owner prior to any repairs being performed over $200.00 unless it is classified as an emergency.
Do you do a Start-Up Review of the property?
Vital part of managing your property is to know your property. We perform a detailed review with digital
photos before allowing a tenant to occupy your property. The start-up review documents the condition
of the property so when the tenant vacates, there is a sound basis for the security deposit.
Do you have Tenant Screening Process?
Thorough screening is crucial to successful Property Management. We require all applicants to fill out
a detailed application and submit it for processing/approval. A credit check is NOT enough! Our company
conducts a careful review of their credit and income, and some cases past tenancy history. Cross referencing
all these areas provides answers to qualify or disqualify prospective applicants.
How long will my property be vacant?
This is the most commonly asked question we receive. Unfortunately, there is no way to predict how long
a property will remain on the market, even in the best market conditions. However, we will work very
diligently to rent the property as quickly as possible. What is important to remember is that the most
important objective is to have “a quality tenant.”
How much will my house rent for?
We always want to tell you what your house can realistically rent for rather than a number that is unattainable
just because it sounds appealing. To figure a rental rate we do an analysis of current market trends.
We look at comparable rentals and take into consideration the condition, amenities and general appeal.
When will I receive my rental proceeds?
Rental payments processed the 1st through the 6th of each month:
Owner rental proceeds will be mailed/deposited by the 10th of each month. If the 10th falls on a weekend,
owner rental proceeds will be mailed/deposited on the next business day.
Rental payments processed after the 6th of each month:
Owner rental proceeds will be mailed/deposited no later than 10 business days after payment is processed.
(Definition of Processed: Funds deposited in Agents Trust Account)
Where will you advertise and Market my property?
We will advertise your property through the use of Third Party Websites such as Realtor.com, Trulia
and Zillow. We will also Display a “FOR RENT” sign on your property and place a lockbox
on your home. These signs promote a high volume of calls to our office every day.
