Our Property Management Services
Nelson Property Management is a full-service property management company. As your property manager, we’ll handle all issues and tasks that pertain to your rental property. We’ve highlighted some of the services that are key to the profitability of your investment in Ferndale:
Lease Preparation, Administration & Move-In
The lease is a contractual and legal document that binds both the tenant and landlord. It must clearly delineate the obligations and responsibilities of both parties and involve consequences if any of its clauses are contravened. Due to landlord-tenant laws, your lease must follow the terms outlined in the rental agreement. We make sure all the guidelines are clear and concise.
Before the tenant moves in, we insist on conducting a move-in inspection. We make use of a pre-determined list that allows us to take note of the condition of the utilities and fittings. The tenant will receive a copy of the report and be requested to sign it. Our team encourages the tenant to also take photos of the condition of the unit/house.
This is important when the tenant wants to move out. We will be able to evaluate and cost any damages at the time. This will allow us to appropriately treat the issue of the security deposit. From our experience, this has always been a bone of contention that must be treated with the utmost care.
Tenant Screening and Selection
In the leasing process, tenant screening and selection is vital. Not only does it protect you as the property owner, but it also protects your neighbors and the local community. By screening a prospective tenant, you are reducing the risk of damages and conflicts significantly with your property.
You’ll only want to rent your property to someone who pays their dues on time, can maintain your property to a reasonable condition, and can get along well with the neighbors.
We look into many aspects when we screen prospective tenants, such as landlord references, background checks, and personal interviews. Nelson Property Management is able to find high-grade tenants to move into your properties. Additionally, all interviews will be conducted in adherence to Fair Housing Guidelines.
Rent collection is vital to the viability of your investment in Ferndale real estate. It’s from the collection of rent that you will be able to pay off the mortgage, build your portfolio, plan for retirement, or even make a living.
The team at Nelson Property Management acknowledges the significance of rent collection. Tenants will receive prompt reminders of rent deadlines. We make use of convenient payment options that allow your tenants to easily pay their rent and other dues. In case of any late/unpaid rent, we will professionally and firmly enforce the penalties.
Property Maintenance and Inspections
Every property, even one that was recently constructed, needs a preventative maintenance schedule. Once you hand over your property to us, our team will create a schedule by taking into consideration the age of your property, the number of tenants, and the services/amenities available.
Your tenants can make a request for services early in the morning or late at night. Regardless of the time, our team will respond promptly to all requests and ensure the matter is handled in the shortest time possible.
Nelson Property Management makes use of a list of pre-approved and experienced service providers. You can be assured that your property will be handled with the utmost care. In addition, their services are charged at competitive market prices, making them more affordable.
No one looks forward to the eviction of a tenant, but it is a necessary service. Your property is your long-term investment and a tenant who doesn’t adhere to the lease’s provisions shouldn’t jeopardize that. Nelson Property Management will handle the eviction process in a professional and legal manner.
About Ferndale, MI
Like most parts of Michigan, Ferndale was occupied by Native Americans before the arrival of the European settlers. The name Michigan is derived from the word “mishigami” which can be translated to mean “large waters.” This is, of course, referring to the Great Lakes.
Encouraged by the fertile soils and climate, the early settlers began cultivating the land. While the population of Ferndale grew, it did at a snail’s pace. It was until the establishment of automotive plants and assembly lines in the area that the area’s population increased exponentially to be the bustling city it is today.
Due to its proximity to Detroit (the bigger city is some twenty minutes away) and its higher quality of life, Ferndale is the place of residence for many Detriot workers. Families have found the city to be the ideal place to raise their kids with its community feel, beautiful parks, and a lower cost of living.
Education is another attraction for families to consider Ferndale over Detroit. The city is served by two school districts: Ferndale Public Schools and Hazel Park Schools. Some of the noteworthy mentions include Ferndale High School and Ferndale University High School.
