The first step is to setup a formal meeting at our office. If you do not have time for a meeting or live out of state we can discuss our solutions over the phone and answer any questions you may have for us. During this time we will analyze comparable rentals in the area to determine the rates we believe are obtainable for your property. If you decide you want to proceed after we talk, we will draft a TAR (Texas Association of Realtors) leasing and management agreement for your review and signature.
If the property that you are wanting to lease is vacant or is your current residence, we will schedule an onsite meeting with you. At that time we will perform an initial inspection and collect important information about the dwelling as well as take leasing photos, if possible. We can collect keys, any existing leases, security deposits and all correspondence between current tenant and landlord. If the property is occupied with a tenant, we will post a change of management at the property and request you notify the tenant in writing that you have hired APT to manage the home. We will then schedule with the tenant for an initial property manager walk through and provide an “Inventory & Condition” report about the property.
