How long does it take to find a tenant?

Finding a tenant usually takes from three days to two weeks. We maintain a list of prospective tenants. The time required also depends on the owner’s desire for a certain type of tenant or lease terms, such as tenancy commencement or duration, non-smoker or no pets.

How are rents received and bills paid?

Most tenants pay rent electronically on the first day of the month directly into the owners Property Management Account set up by FRBO at 1st Bank.

Bills (HOA dues, invoices, mortgages, etc.) are paid by FRBO or the owner from that one account. This gives the owner an individual and accurate history of deposits and withdrawals.

What if the tenant does not pay rent?

We discuss the situation with the tenant to determine if the non-payment is due to job loss, medical problems or the like. If so, we discuss the best course of action with the owner. Normally, we follow our standard procedure of posting a 3-Day Demand Notice, and eviction if necessary. This process normally takes 30 days.

Work Together

Realtors



Realtors and Property Managers often work together to offer more comprehensive services to benefit the client. Realtors help sell and buy properties as an agent for the seller or buyer. Property Managers manage real property and interface with the owners over an extended period of time as a “general agent”.

FRBO pays a fee to Realtors for referring properties that become managed by FRBO.
