Monitor Your Property, from Near or Far
Many Virginia property owners don’t live in Virginia. Some savvy investors have chosen to purchase homes in this region, while others may have inherited a property or are currently renting a former residence. Regardless of why you own local property, a property manager can be your best friend in keeping tabs on your rental when you live out of state. Learn more about how to stay informed by exploring the following tips.
Choose a Property Manager with Online Portals
Technology has radically redefined many industries over the course of the past few decades, and the property management industry is one example. Competent Virginia property managers should offer online access to account information for their clients. At Keyrenter, our portals provide a comprehensive snapshot of every property we manage. The portal includes in-depth earning and expense reports, inspection notes, and other important financial details. This allows our clients to take a quick peak from anywhere on the planet with an internet connection.
Regularly Speak to Your Property Manager
You may not be able to swing by your rental unit at a moment’s notice, but you can do the next best thing by scheduling a phone call with your property management firm. Honest managers love to chat with their clients—after all, without your business, there would be no firm. Make a regular habit of corresponding with your manager, either by phone or email.
Remember, your property manager has plenty of expertise you can use to your advantage. Some clients mistakenly think property managers simply go through a checklist of responsibilities on any given day, but we also can help you identify ways to increase you monthly rental income, build your property value, and decrease turnover rates. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’re wondering how Keyrenter can help you better meet your financial goals.
Purchase Additional Inspections
Many landlords secretly fear what takes place inside their rental units. Fortunately, property owners and their representatives have the legal right to schedule inspections with tenants, which can provide peace of mind. If you’re concerned about your property, speak to your property manager about obtaining additional inspections, and we may be able to help.
Some homeowners debate whether or not hiring a property manager is the right choice for them, but if you’re not based in the local area, a manager is a necessity. Why not choose Keyrenter for your property needs? We’re focused on providing the best service possible, which we do by remaining honest with our customers. Our offices in Richmond are part of the national Keyrenter network, and our experts benefit from invaluable training and resources. Best of all, we’re accessible and eager to help you succeed.

Highly recommend Keyrenter! As homeowners self-managing our property, we found ourselves struggling to find tenants in the off-season. Calvin and Ashley went above and beyond to ensure the house was in the best condition possible and worked tirelessly to ensure we found the perfect tenants.

Keyrenter is very organized. I have had several problems with my condo, and Keyrenter has been on top of everything. I can’t say enough good things about the company.

Lorrie M., Satisfied Client
I happened to stumble over Keyrenter Property Management after being jostled around by multiple property management companies. Not being from Richmond made finding a home even more difficult and Keyrenter was amazing in this process. The communication is great and Calvin and his team have been more than accommodating to my family and I. I would give this 10 stars if I could. Highly recommended.
