Being a full-service property management company, we can help you manage all aspects of your property. This includes helping you find a desirable tenant, collect rent, maintain your property, and more. Our main goal is to help property owners like you realize and achieve their investment goals.
Our team is experienced, friendly, committed and conducts itself with the utmost level of professionalism. It’s no wonder why clients keep choosing us time and time again.
Owning and managing an investment property are two different things. While anyone can own property, not anyone can become a property manager. Being a landlord isn’t just about collecting rent every month, there is a lot more to it than just that.
As a landlord, you have a lot to think about in addition to having the requisite skills and experience. You need to have an efficient marketing process that ensures you fill your vacant rentals quickly.
You also need to know how to sort through prospective tenants with a rigorous screening process. Your leasing specialist at RentEasy will be knowledgeable about federal, state, and local laws to help to ensure all your actions are legal.
At RentEasy, we have distinguished and proven ourselves in these areas of managing a property again and again. We provide property management service to the areas of Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Suffolk, Norfolk, and Hampton.
Why Hire Us
There are many benefits you will get from working with us. The following are six things that set us apart from the competition in the industry and prove that you should choose us to manage your property:
1. We are different from the competition.
When you work with us, you get to enjoy:
- A $125 flat management fee (not percentage-based like most of our competitors).
- Exclusive access to preferred vendors and in house maintenance
- No long-term contracts
- Flat-fee tenant placement fee
- No account set-up fees
2. We can help you fill vacant rental units.
Vacant rentals are every landlord’s worst nightmare. When your property is vacant, you’ll lose rent payments and operate with negative cash flow. Negative cash flow is when your investment has more outgoing than incoming money, as you’ll have to look for money elsewhere to pay for expenses like property tax.
We have effective rental marketing techniques up our sleeves to help in this regard. We’ll use cutting edge technology with online strategies to find a tenant to fill your vacancy. Online strategies may include listing on top rental listing sites and running social media campaigns. All marketing is done on your behalf with no out of pocket expenses or start up fees.
3. We can help you find the perfect tenants the first time.
We only rent to quality tenants and guarantee lease compliance as well. We begin the screening process early. This is what we call the pre-screening stage. Here, we ask the prospective tenant a few questions to learn something about them.
Some of the questions include:
- Are you currently renting? If so, where and for how long.
- What’s your reason for moving?
- When do you intend to move in?
- How much do you make each month?
- Have you ever faced an eviction?
How a tenant answers these questions helps us determine their suitability to live in our rental. If we are satisfied with the responses, we then move on to the next step of requiring them to fill an application form.
Once they do, they will be subject to another round of screening. In this round we go a bit deeper and contact their references as well as verify their employment and rental background.
4. We can keep your investment’s paperwork in order.
As our client, we guarantee you detailed financial reports. You will be able to access these reports anywhere and at any time from your online portal.
5. We can help you with the rent collection.
If you have been managing your property, then you know that collecting rent isn’t as easy as it seems on the surface. This is especially true if you are dealing with problem tenants. With problem tenants, it can be stressful and frustrating.
At RentEasy, our goal is to ensure our clients get paid on time, every time. We have systems to ensure that this happens.
6. We can help you handle your investment’s maintenance.
Maintaining your property is key to having a successful rental investment. At RentEasy, we understand this. That’s why we only hire the most reliable and professional contractors when maintenance issues crop up.
We regularly inspect our clients’ rentals at various times throughout a year. Included in tenant placement RentEasy will perform a move in inspection to document the initial condition of the property. Typically RentEasy will provide a 6 month of occupancy inspection and arrange this at lease signing. Included in tenant placement RentEasy will also do a final inspection when a tenant is moving out and help with security deposit deductions or repairs.

When you work with us, you will no longer need to worry about vacant units, renting to problem tenants, handling tenant issues, or responding to those late-night maintenance calls.
