We are especially serious about fiduciary details.
As rental managers it is our solemn charge to account for every cent of rent and each expense. All of us work hard to ensure that each rental property owner has the opportunity to know exactly where is money is going to and coming from. To accomplish this task we work with one of the most powerful programs in the management business: Rent Manager.
We always try to process and deposit rents on the same day they are received. Funds are deposited into an escrow account (not into our operating account). We prepare a monthly statement that states the rental income as well as any bills which we have paid on the landlord's behalf. The monthly statement is also available electronically. The monthly statement will describe what reserves we are holding on behalf of the property owner.
There is no additional charge for the reports or the accounting. Furthermore, Nesbitt Realty never pads the price on the repairs, nor do we charge a fee per repair. At the end of the year, we compile the monthly reports into a year-end report. In January we mail the rental investors, and to the IRS, a 1099 stating the income for the rental property. Use the 1099 to prepare your taxes or simply give the 1099 to your tax preparer.
Boston Property Management Resources
Your investment in real estate is a business like any other. As a landlord, you have expenses, income and with perseverance, you also have the expectation of financial reward.
In the business of real estate investment, nearly all cashflow comes from tenants. And that's the catch: If you have tenants, you will have problems. Even the best of tenants have needs and all properties will require maintenance or management at some point. A property management company takes all the hassle out of rental management.
