Preparing the Home or Commercial Property for Lease
One of the hardest parts of being a property manager comes before you put your property up for rent. You may need renovations to floor and wall coverings, lights, plumbing, and more. It’s necessary to ensure everything is functional and attractive. Depending on the local market, you might also want to replace appliances or put in new amenities.
You also need to figure out how much to charge in rent, whether to include additional bills such as utilities and more. You must also abide by all the rules of your local zoning authority or HOA. Our property management company has the knowledge and expertise it takes to give you the best advice.
Locating Renters & Showing the Property
Once your real estate is up for rent, you need to locate trustworthy tenants as quickly as you can. This requires getting the news out that it is available. At Real Property Management in the Las Vegas metro area, we use only the most professional outdoor signs and top quality digital marketing, including searchable online listings that feature pro photography and compelling written descriptions of your space. Every day your property goes unrented is a financial hit, so promptness is crucial in this process.
You will need to show the property several times, and should count on missed appointments. When a tenant is interested in renting, you need to conduct due diligence to be confident they will care for the property and pay you every month. We complete thorough background checks, including rental history, proof of income, criminal history, and credit history. These reports get expensive, even when you ask the renters to help pay, but we have negotiated premium rates with providers.
You also need to make sure you are within the law throughout the process. Most property owners who manage properties themselves aren’t knowledgeable about legal issues like fair housing laws. Even little mistakes can become big problems.
Repairs, Maintenance & Inspections
Making your property investment grow in Las Vegas, Henderson, or North Las Vegas requires that it be kept in good condition.

Screening carefully lessens your likelihood of running into issues like late or missed payments, but problems may still come about.
