The company’s Residential Group provides full service property management, leasing, accounting and brokerage services for residential homes, individual condominium units and multi-family properties. The mission of the property manager is to create an environment in which individuals enjoy the comfort and security of their homes and in which the value of the owner’s investment is maximized. When our clients decide to sell their investment property, our experienced agents are ready to assist.
Marketing and Advertising
Rentals are exposed to the market via our corporate web site, social media networks and Craig’s List to receive optimal web presence. Our advertising template is professional and unique so that our listings stand out from the competition. Agents with Yates Wood are available seven days a week to show properties to prospective residents.
Property Maintenance & Repairs
To maintain the quality of your investment property, we contract with the most cost efficient service vendors to save you money with our volume buying power. For smaller jobs, we have in-house maintenance staff. Our frequent property inspections allow us to diagnose and perform preventative maintenance to avoid more serious and costly issues in the future.
Financial Management & Reporting
Our financial responsibilities include timely rent receipts, monthly invoice payment including mortgage, insurance and real estate taxes (as directed by the owner). Each owner receives a complete monthly statement as prepared by our professional accounting department. The statement is accompanied by the property manager’s report and a check representing the owner’s funds.
Our extensive knowledge of the rental markets around the Puget Sound region ensures that your rental property is leased quickly and at the highest rental rate possible. Our residential staff members have access to resources that provide up to the minute market information.
Tenant Qualifying & Screening
Our thorough screening scans all potential tenants for credit and criminal background. We also check references with employers and past landlords. This extensive process protects our client’s investments by identifying the most qualified residents for their property.
Yates Wood & MacDonald, Inc. is a full service brokerage and our management clients frequently look to us to market their rental properties for sale.
During the management process, we have gained thorough knowledge of the condition of the property and surrounding neighborhood.
When owners make the decision to sell, we assist in establishing a price accompanied by a market analysis.
Residential properties are listed with Northwest Multiple Listing Service with complete and professional property descriptions. Marketing also includes visible signage and open houses.
We hope our clients will consider us their partner in both the management and sale of their investment.
