What exactly does a full-service leasing management company do for you? Below you can explore what Specialized Property Management Fort Worth does during the rental cycle to reduce vacancy days and save you money.
Your property manager will inspect the property ensuring it is “rent-ready” before potential tenants see it. This is the first step we take to make your property stands out from the competition. We will make recommendations for any property maintenance or upgrades that will reduce vacancy days and increase cash flow. A mid-lease inspection is also performed to ensure lease compliance and property upkeep. See our blog on inspections to learn more.
Our leasing management team will post signage in your yard, advertise on dozens of websites, and create video walkthroughs for our youtube channel. Aggressive online marketing is important as people spend more and more time searching for rental homes online. The more exposure your property gets, the more likely it is to rent quickly. Visit our youtube channel to see examples of video walkthroughs.
Along with high-quality video walkthroughs our property managers arrange live showings for potential tenants. These showings can make a huge difference for applicants on the fence about which property they want to rent. Our property managers show off the best your property has to offer while demonstrating the professionalism tenants should expect from a property manager.
One of the most important steps in the rental cycle is screening your applicants because it will protect you against evictions. Your tenant must have solid employment and a clean criminal and rental history. Finding a reliable tenant will reduce turnover, maintenance costs, and evictions. A well-qualified tenant is worth waiting for, so don’t settle for anything less. For more information on our tenant screening process read here.
Lease signing involves much more than the physical signing of papers. For property owners or managers, it means preparing and executing the leasing documents in accordance with the leases and addenda promulgated by the Texas Association of Realtors. Our professional leasing management team will prepare these documents promptly so your new tenants can move in quickly. We will also provide your new tenant with formal training on how to take care of the property, what their responsibilities are, and who to call in case of emergency.
Your tenant’s lease will clearly communicate our rent collection process, so there is no confusion. Our process helps avoid late payments, and we offer an online portal to give tenants an easy and quick way to pay. We deposit rent funds into your account electronically for prompt payment.

Periodic preventative maintenance is a must for any rental home to ensure your tenants are happy and your home is well cared for. When your property’s systems are maintained properly, they will perform well in the years to come. Our team is also available 24/7 for any maintenance emergencies. Repair requests are always handled in a timely manner by qualified, licensed professionals. For more information on maintaining your rental home read this post.
Tenant turnover is costly, even if vacancy days are kept to a minimum. Re-keying the property, deep cleaning, shampooing carpets, inspections, and marketing are all necessary expenses incurred by tenants. Our team works hard to renew each tenant’s lease by being proactive and professional in our efforts. Our excellent customer service and tenant perks reduce turnover and keep your tenants happy.
Of course, tenants do move on, and when that happens, we are here to make sure the process runs smoothly. Our team processes notices and answers any questions the tenant may have about the transition. After move out, we walk through the unit to inspect the property, taking note of any work that needs to be done, and managing deposit disbursements.
Most real estate management companies will give their clients occasional maintenance reports and year-end tax statements. Our team goes beyond that with detailed accounting, activity reports, maintenance reports, and statements available 24/7 through our online owner portal. During the leasing process, we also provide weekly updates to owners. Our team goes the extra mile to make sure you are informed every step of the way.
