visibility for our clients.
Seattle's Property Management invested heavily in technology systems to provide clients with the best services to manage their properties efficiently and effectively.
For this purpose we have chosen the industry leading property management software; ©AppFolio.
Some of the benefits that we are able to pass on to you:
- We can respond faster and provide better service to both owners and tenants.
We can securely access information about all properties at any time and from anywhere. Sensitive data is securely housed in a state-of-art data center, and backed
up regularly and automatically.
- Monthly statements can be delivered to your email inbox, saving time and paper.
The statements are easy to read and provide you with a quick snapshot of your property details for the past month.
- We address property maintenance issues faster.
We can create electronic work orders and communicate with vendors so we quickly solve issues.
- You will be paid faster and more securely.
We are able to use electronic payments (ACH) to deposit funds directly into your bank account.
- We can more effectively market your properties to fill vacancies sooner.
We can quickly and professionally advertise your properties on our website as well as over one-hundred other relevant websites with a quick one-click system.
We search four (4) areas of each tenant’s background:
- Credit. We generally look for a minimum credit score of 700.
- Rental History. Ideally, at least two years of unblemished rental history.
- Employment. The tenant(s) must make 3X the rent to qualify for our properties.
- *Public records search. We run City, State, County and Federal background searches.
*Starting in February 2018 properties located in the City of Seattle will no longer be subject to criminal background checks due to recent legislative changes by the City.
All security deposits are held at by our company in a pooled non-interest-bearing trust that is FDIC insured. The bank we utilize is in Seattle, WA and has been in business
for over 70 years.
We’d all love to depend on a handshake agreement, but today’s liability concerns necessitate leases and other documents that make a handshake more official. By including
lease preparing in our full-service property management, you benefit from our well-vetted lease agreement. At Seattle's Property Management, we draw up leases each and every
day, helping our clients secure and screen tenants before getting them to sign the lease that provides protection for both parties.
With our detailed financial reporting tools, it's never been easier to keep
tabs on your investment. Log into your owner portal to view statements and
stay in tune with how your investment is performing.
