Acquiring and Keeping Good Tenants

Acquiring and keeping good tenants doesn’t happen by luck. At Area Texas Realty and Management our philosophy is to get the best tenants and keep them in the property as long as possible. We believe this to be one of the most important jobs that a property management Houston company has to perform. Investors are concerned about the bottom line and turning over a tenant every 12 months or putting a subpar tenant in the property hurts the bottom line. There are realtor costs, make ready costs, repair costs and vacancy costs that will eat into your profit. Keeping a quality tenant in the property for 2+ years can increase your profitability immensely.

How do we do it? It starts with our company philosophy toward tenants and then we use our experience to get the best results.

At Area Texas Realty & Management we are dedicated to offering outstanding customer service. We do this not only with our fantastic owners but we strive to do this with our tenants as well. A happy tenant will take better care of the property and leave it in better condition when he leaves. A broken AC in the middle of summer can be brutal in Houston. We take this kind of repair seriously and make every effort to get it taken care of immediately to keep the tenant and their families from being inconvenienced for too long. The same goes for any issue that may affect the health of the tenant. A landlord should take this seriously and make sure a small problem doesn’t turn into a big one. If a tenant sees that an owner or property manager truly cares for the property, there’s a good chance they will do the same. 

Additionally we screen our tenants thoroughly. Some companies may say they have a tough screening process but what do they do with the information they receive? At Area Texas Realty and Management we have the experience to review all of the information and make the right call for our owners. Placing a tenant in a property to hurry up and fill a vacancy is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, mistake a property manager or owner can make. This is where we put our 20+ years of experience to work for you. We ask ourselves the question: Would we put this tenant in our own personal property? If the answer is no, then we won’t rent to that person. Plain and simple.

If you’re looking for a Property Management company in Houston that can take care of your property like you would yourself, then contact the professionals at Area Texas Realty & Management. We’re here to protect your investment and help you to maximize your profit.
