Couple working with a property management team to help landlords and investors feel at ease and tenants feel right at home.

So you’ve decided to become a landlord. Renting out properties can be a great source of income and, with the right property management company at your side, a stress-free endeavor. 

Learn more about how working with a property management team can help landlords and investors feel at ease and tenants feel right at home.

1.) Showing Properties

Taking time out of a busy schedule for property showings is one of the biggest hassles landlords face. Accommodating the needs of prospective tenants can be tricky and no one wants to miss an opportunity due to prior deadlines. This sentiment rings true for long-distance landlords as well as local property owners.

Scheduling showings is easy with the help of a property management company that you can rely on. Property managers know how to market to specific tenant needs such as short term stays and corporate housing residences. The added benefit of a professional touch extends beyond rentals and also covers meeting with local regulators for inspections and rental license renewal.  This means less work for landlords and more happy tenants to fill those units.

 2.) Compliance Certified

Compliance can be a scary word that conjures up images of legalese and fine print. Luckily, you don’t need to be a property law wizard to manage rental units. Leave the technical details to the professionals!

Property managers know the in’s and out’s of drawing up leases, screening tenants, and ensuring your rental agreements remain compliant with local ordinances. This includes running credit reports, background checks, and handling any unexpected events such as evictions. They also have your back if legal issues arise, giving landlords the peace of mind they need to keep providing excellent service for their properties.

3.) A Reliable Point of Contact

Whatever the need, a dedicated property management staff is there to support your residents. This takes the pressure off individual property owners and ensures any issues are immediately addressed. This makes the rental experience efficient and effective. From maintenance to security deposits and lease negotiations, having a full-service concierge has never been easier.

4.) Property Management Teams Are Marketing Experts

Engaging the services of a property management company is like having a legal team, an onsite staff member that is always on call, and a marketing expert all in one! Many landlords stress over attracting prospective tenants to their properties. Drawing the right kind of resident to create a diverse community of thriving, courteous neighbours can be a daunting prospect. The need to fill units is sometimes difficult to balance against selecting quality candidates.

With a comprehensive advertising campaign, there’s no need to seek out the perfect tenant. Property management companies offer a well-known agency name under which landlords can list their properties. This means the advantage of local SEO, print advertisement, and word of mouth. From international workers to furnished apartments in Toronto, the right candidates will come to you. 

5.) Reduced Infrastructure, Upgraded Efficiency

Individual landlords typically manage a small staff to keep the property functioning. This may include administrative professionals, on call staff, and tenant liaisons. While the benefit of these services is highly useful when it comes to tenant satisfaction and retention, the hassle of being both an employer and a landlord is a heavy burden to take on. 

Property management companies boost efficiency and lower stress by providing an all-in-one service. This means you won’t need to worry about payroll or staff management. For those seeking a turn-key style approach to rentals in Toronto, enlisting the help of qualified rental professionals is the best way to manage multiple properties or a single unit.

Our hearts go out to all those who have been affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic. Rest assured that we are closely monitoring the situation and taking steps to protect our team members and guests as the situation continues to evolve.

Business Continuity

Our first step was to invoke our Business Continuity Plan. We are entirely digital and do not rely on any manual processes. We are also completely cloud-based and diversified through our use of Amazon AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure. Our office team is mobile-ready and has access to all critical infrastructure, including our cloud-based phone and booking systems. Rest assured - we are prepared to continue serving you.

Flexible Cancellations

For any new reservations booked directly with us, and until April 30, 2020, the booking can be cancelled at any time before arrival and with no cancellation fee.

New Arrivals

Toronto Public Health announced enhanced measures to protect the public on March 13, 2020, and are currently in effect until April 5, 2020. Anyone who has travelled from anywhere outside Canada, including the United States, is asked to self-isolate and avoid contact with others for 14 days.

For All Stays

Weekly Touch Up Service

For your safety and ours, weekly touch up service is cancelled until April 30, 2020. We encourage guests to utilize the ensuite washer and dryer to launder their linens and towels. For guests wishing to receive fresh linens, please send a request through Guest Services, and we will arrange to pick up your used linens (left in a bag at the front door inside the suite) and drop off fresh linen for you to use.

Our Commitment to High Cleaning Standards

We have always utilized commercial hospitality-grade cleaning procedures and supplies. We use specialized chemicals for different surfaces to ensure optimal disinfection. We also use new gloves and separate microfibre cleaning cloths for each suite to prevent cross-contamination. Any linens or cleaning cloths supplies by us have been professionally sanitized at a large commercial laundry facility.

Suite Visits by Guest Services & Maintenance

Until April 30, 2020, we will not conduct any suite tours for prospective guests, nor will any of our Maintenance or Guest Services team members visit occupied suites for any issues other than those relating to essential services.

We recognize that these are challenging times. Like many before it, this too will pass, and together we will get through it. Know that we are working around the clock to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable stay. We remain at your service 24/7 should you have any questions or concerns.
