Property Management Soultions

lovely-little-cottage-3-1228858Whether you are a homeowner or investor and have a rental property you may be in need of property management solutions. What do you do when your tenant tells you that they have a hardship such as they just lost their job or experienced a medical issue and have had to be off work and do not have the rent?

What about when you get a call in the middle of the night, or at 6:00 pm on Friday or even on the weekend as we all know that emergencies never happen when it is convenient or during normal business hours.

If you are lucky enough to have a staff of on call individuals to take care of the issue then it is not a problem and most likely will not interrupt your day, night or weekend, however; if you do not have that support then you are changing your plans and dropping what you were in the middle of to take care of the issue.

Who do you call when you need maintenance done? Do you have an on call vendor to turn to? How about a list of professional companies to handle what ever should arise? If you don’t then to the yellow pages you must turn.

When your tenants move out and hopefully leave on good terms, how do you find new good tenants? Do you use Craigslist or the newspaper? Are you able to adequately screen your applicants and weed out the not so good ones? If they did not leave the home in the same condition as they received it who do you call to do the work to make it ready for rent?

If these or other issues plague you there is an alternative. You can hire me to manage your property. Our service will handle all of these issues and more. Additionally you will receive a breakdown of all the charges on a monthly statement with the rent being deposited directly into your bank account.

Does this sound like something you need in your life? If so, give me a call, text me or email me. I will be happy to advise you of all our services and fees. Call Barb Ramirez at 775-688-4668-Office or 775-690-7143-Cell or email me at barb@barbramirez.com

Have a care free day! I look forward to hearing from you.

What’s it Worth?

Maybe you’re thinking of selling, maybe you’re thinking of refinancing, or maybe you’re just curious about the market. But the question is, “What is that residence of yours worth?”

Such a simple question should be returned with a simple answer, right? Well unfortunately, determining the value of your home–or any home for that matter–can be a tricky process. You can go online and these days there are endless websites that will promise you a fast answer with fancy charts and graphs. As tempting as it may be to trust this information, be wary of letting a computer program tell you what your largest investment is worth.

The trouble with these websites is that they have little to no local market information and if they do have local information it may not be updated frequently. They are not aware that a new park is being built, or that a four-lane highway is being re-routed, or that you’ve lovingly cared for and maintained your home.

The bottom line is this: If you’re serious about getting an informative valuation for your home you should contact a local real estate professional. These professionals work with the actual people who will ultimately determine the value of your home–the home buyer themselves. This is their profession and they will be happy to sit with you and explain the current market conditions that affect your home value.

How is your market?

 

 

One of the questions that I seem to hear the most is, “How it the market?” My response is GREAT! Truth is whether it is a buyer’s market or a seller’s market, if your home is priced correctly it should sell rather quickly. If it does, you achieved your goal. If you are not getting offers or showings then an adjustment needs to be made. The market often tells us what the price should be. Of course we may not like what we hear but that is a good temperature gauge for us. How is your market? If you have questions give me a call and I will answer your questions or at the very least point you in the right direction.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Does fraud bother you?

I have a listing for a 4 bedroom, 1 and a half bath home in Reno NV for sale. Today I started getting emails from people asking if the ad on craigslist was real.  I answered of course it is real. They responded with the rental listing for $790 with all utilities paid? I could not believe it. Someone had taken my listing and put their fraudulent information on a new craigslist ad and they were trying to rent the home I have for sale, pretending to be the owner! This person even went as far as to text individuals and even email documentation that they are the owner. I am amazed at the lengths people will go to obtain money falsely. Please if you are looking to rent or to buy DO NOT send any personal information or money if you are unable to meet with the REALTOR, Property Manager or homeowner. I not only received the emails from people wondering if it was a scam or the real deal but also a phone call and even a text (from my for sale sign on the property). Remember if is sounds too good to be true it just might be. If you need help to rent or buy contact a REALTOR or Property Manager and if you do not know one you can always contact me for help or a referral. Please make sure that you are leasing from a person who has the legal right to lease or sell to you. If you are buying you will go though escrow and title and there is a process, not just sending money to an account. Additionally make sure that you have verified all information and they have not simply emailed you documents that they can obtain online. With the age of the Internet property and owner information is easy to obtain. Be careful and if you suspect fraud or a scam verify, report and flag it please! Happy hunting!
