Property Management Basics

Julie Nesbitt
Julie Nesbitt manages property in Northern VA. Her landlords value her attention to detail.

Property management is a business in and of itself. If you want to invest in real estate, but you don’t want to be a property manager, the solution is really quite simple: employ the services of Nesbitt Realty. Our family-run business is experienced with managing the day-to-day operations of properties just like yours. We manage residential properties including homes, condos and townhouses.

A big value-add provided by your Nesbitt Realty property manager is “separation”. This to say, your Nesbitt Realty property manager maintains a level of separation between the landlord and the tenants and the property. As you may already know, it’s important to invest in real estate without emotionally investing in tenants or property. Your Nesbitt Realty property manager helps ensure that you always make the best decision for your family, rather than making the best decision for the tenant’s family.

window
Nesbitt Realty currently manages properties in Carlyle Towers, the Jamieson and across Northern VA.

So, your Nesbitt Realty rental property manager serves as a buffer between the owner and his tenants. Nesbitt Realty can help you find tenants, handling repair projects and maintenance, oversee improvements, collect rent, and even pay some expenses and taxes. The specific tasks we handle vary based upon upon the needs and wishes of the property owner. Additionally, a competent Nesbitt Realty property manager gives you protection from certain liabilities.

Nesbitt Realty usually charges a percentage of the rents collected. Every aspect of Nesbitt Realty property manager’s responsibilities will be outlined in a contract signed by both Nesbitt Realty and the landlord. This agreement details financial responsibilities and specifies the types of financial reports the landlord can expect.

Your Nesbitt Realty property manager will stay current on new laws and condo regulations which may be relevant to your situation. Nesbitt Realty Property Management takes a lot of the burden off of owning rental real estate.

Art Festival in Old Town Alexandria VA

Will and Julie at Art Festival
At the 2009 Alexandria Art Festival

This weekend Julie and I went to Old Town with the Alexandria Fun with Friends Group to enjoy the Alexandria Art Festival. The Art Festival occurs every year around this time and features artists and craftsmen from around the area.

2009 Art Festival
2009 Art Festival in Old Town Alexandria

King Street closes to vehicular traffic and artists set-up stalls in the street. It’s an easy way to enjoy lots of art from lots of folks. The weather was very co-operative, neither too hot nor too cold.

This 12 foot tall image of a koi caught my eye, as did many smaller pieces.

Arts Festival in Old Town Alexandria

I found that my camera was drawn to the larger pieces, but this is probably because I knew they would photograph well. There were many smaller items for sale too. However, many of us felt that this year’s festival seemed to offer more pieces that would be welcomed in a restaurant or hotel lobby than usual and a few number of the smaller pieces that look nice in a home.

There were several musicians playing up and down the street. This harpist sang like an angel, but I have to admit that my favorite was the steel drum player.

King Street
People walking King Street during Art Festival

We walked all the way up to Washington Street before turning around and making way back to the Potomac. After some discussion the group voted to eat at the Charthouse. At the Charthouse, the ladies had a little wine and we enjoyed some relaxed conversation and then dinner. For my part, I think the food at the Charthouse is good, but not great. Even though it’s a little pricey, it’s worth it because of the pleasant views of the Potomac that are offered.
