Seven Steps to Better Rent Collection

When you own rental property, it all comes down to RENT. You need it paid, and you need it paid on time. Easy, right? You get the check on the first, it clears, voila! It doesn’t take long to learn it’s not that simple. Even well-screened tenants can hit a difficult patch, and one day you find yourself in the collections business—or even facing an eviction. Take it from the property management leader—there’s a better way. Here are the 7 steps Real Property Management takes to keep that rent coming in:

  • First, the process starts back at the beginning with rigorous tenant qualification and screening.
  • Then, we set expectations with tenants early, communicating our firm-but-fair rent policies up front.
  • We offer tenants incentives for paying rent on time through the Real Property Management Resident Club, which saves tenants hundreds of dollars a month on things they buy every day.
  • Then we rely on our technology-driven platform that allows tenants to pay online, then the funds are electronically deposited into the owner’s account via ACH.
  • If rent isn’t paid on time, it triggers our automated collections process so not a moment is wasted. Our respectful-yet-tough team acts like clockwork to enforce the lease and avoid delays.
  • We stay up to date on the current laws and regulations so we can act as quickly as the law allows and minimize rent-free days if an eviction becomes necessary.
  • Finally, we keep the process professional, not personal. When you have set expectations with tenants early, clearly and respectfully, the outcome is in their hands.
