We Build a Management Plan Tailored for Your Property

The most difficult part of owning an investment property is its daily management. Main Street Management’s comprehensive services eliminate those difficulties for you by providing end-to-end services for your property. Best of all, your property will operate at its highest value potential because we will reduce your operating costs, look for and seize ancillary income opportunities, and maximize occupancy through innovative marketing and tenant retention programs.

Our comprehensive services include:

Management Planning

The development of a management plan begins with gathering as much information as possible about your property and its operating potential. Working closely with you, our property manager delivers a detailed analysis of the building as it relates to the market and the property's ability to attract tenants. The completed management plan enables you to anticipate problems, capitalize on opportunities, optimize allocation of resources, and streamline operations.

Reporting

Reporting is a critical link in the relationship between an owner and the Main Street Management team. Our reporting system will serve two primary functions: dispensing timely information and monitoring the progress of the management team.

Standard reporting includes:

Weekly leasing rates
Advertising activities
Property inspections
Financial reporting
Annual insurance review

Project Meetings

Project meetings, both onsite and offsite, present the opportunity to understand your mindset and goals. More frequent in the early stages of our business relationship with you, these meetings are essential for establishing agreed upon process and procedures and coordinating between members of the management team and yourself. A schedule for these strategic meetings will be delivered upon commencement of our services.

Resident Managers

The resident manager is one of the most important figures in the overall management of any property. Our system for developing top notch resident managers has a proven, successful track record because it includes:

  • Extensive training during the first 60 days
  • Weekly site visits by the property supervisor
  • Day-to-day phone/email communication
  • Monthly site visits by an independent property inspector
  • Strict adherence to the Main Street Management operations manual
  • Mandatory quarterly training sessions

Your resident manager will be responsible for:

Rent Collection Maintenance Supervision Monthly Financial Reporting
Leasing Personnel

The initial lease up of the properties will require frequent visits by a Main Street Management staff member. Each Leasing Agent will be required to provide a daily traffic log to our office. That report includes pertinent facts about prospective tenants and important follow up information. The leasing agent will be required to follow up directly with each prospect by phone.

Your Leasing Agent will handle:

Applicant screening & approval
Negotiation & execution of rental agreements

Lease structuring

Rent Collection

Each resident manager is required to submit a rent collection sheet by the fifth day of each month along with a rent collection status report. The property supervisor reviews each rent roll and status report to identify potential problems. The supervisor will immediately resolve any collection problem by enforcing a pre-determined collection policy.

Property Marketing

As your agent, we have the skills required to successfully position your property in the marketplace. After completing a detailed market analysis, our team will provide you with a comprehensive advertising and promotion plan. But the work does not end there. Our leasing team continuously monitors current and future leasing options as well as changing market conditions.
