You may own property but do not have the time or experience to manage it. Finding the right tenants and obtaining the best price for your property is a task you won’t have to worry about if you turn to the experienced property managers of The Silver Star Group at RE/MAX Top Realty. We provide reliable, streamlined and trustworthy management services and have managed properties for over 30 years. In fact, our team member Richard Skotak, Broker Associate, is a founding member of the National Association of Realtors Property Management Section.
Our property management includes single-family homes, condominiums, and townhomes. We make the process of leasing your home as smooth and efficient as possible. Owners trust us with their properties and we work on behalf of the owner and in concert with the tenants.
We can help you locate tenants with comprehensive marketing strategies using the Houston Association of Realtors MLS, RE/MAX Lead Street, this web site, Trulia.com, Zillow.com, Realtor.com, along with social media on YouTube, The Silver Star Group blog, and Facebook means your property can be found by the people who are looking. Realtors throughout the Houston area will find it easier to find your property. Exposure is the most important component of marketing and this will help you obtain the full value of your property.
You have control over the terms of the leasing agreement and have final approval of the potential tenants. Tenant screening includes employment, income, rental payment history, credit history, FICO score and a background check if desired.A security deposit and pet deposit will be retained in a separate escrow account. The amount of the deposits will be determined by you. The security deposit will be refunded to the tenant within 30 days after move-out provided the home has been left in good condition with only normal wear and tear to the property.
Adherence to the Texas Property Code, Chapter 92 Residential Tenancies is vital and referenced in the standard Texas Association of Realtors Residential Lease agreement as well as the Residential Property Leasing and Management Agreement. You can review the property code here. We also work with the County, City, and local Homeowners Associations in adhering to deed restrictions and standards. This will make the relationship between you and the tenant much smoother.
Once your property has been leased and is tenant occupied, The Silver Star Group monitors the process, collects rent, and provides you with a monthly statement. Statements are sent to you via email or USPS along with rental payments. If you have an account with a major bank such as Wells Fargo, Chase, or Bank of America, rent payments may be deposited directly into your account as soon as the rent check is received from the tenant and our check is written to you. We offer convenient rent collection options. Tenants can mail payments or drop them off at our office.
External and internal inspections are scheduled by arrangement with the tenants at least annually or more frequently if deemed necessary. The need for any repairs or maintenance is supervised by us and coordinated with you, the owner. We have an extensive network of repair experts who respond quickly and The need for any repairs must be submitted in writing by the tenant except in the case of an emergency when a 24/7 number is available to them. It is recommended that you purchase a home warranty or service contract that will cover most major systems in the home and require only a small co-pay for repairs.
