Yes, there is a cost associated with having a licensed and professional company manage your rental property. It's called a management fee and in our company it's a percentage of the monthly rent. While this fee can be deducted on your income taxes, it is an expense for you that you need to calculate in your budget. We do feel that the benefits shown below are worth much more than the fee.
In the areas of South Carolina that we serve, Summerville, Goose Creek, North Charleston, Ladson and Hanahan, our marketing plan has been proven to work. The average days on market for rental properties in the Charleston/Trident MLS in our market area has consistently been around 45 days. Our time on the market averages about 21 days!
The benefit for you, as a landlord, is that the difference in marketing time could save you one half month of unpaid rent, or more.
We investigate tenant applicants. We check their credit reports, verify income, check rental references, perform background check including criminal, sex registry and evictions.

We require all tenants to carry $100,000 of liability insurance on the property to protect you in the event of tenant-caused damage to the home and $300,000 of personal liability insurance if they have a dog, also to protect you.
The benefit for you, as a landlord, is that you are protected should the property or someone in the property be harmed.
We make it easier for you to be a landlord. We can provide services that include every aspect of managing a rental property, except cashing your owner's check and doing your taxes.
