Coldwell Banker Bain Property Management provides full-service residential property management, including mortgage, tax and insurance payments made from the rent received. We will deposit rental funds directly to your bank account, saving you time. You will receive detailed monthly statements, with copies of all paid invoices as well as a year-end statement, which helps with income tax accounting.
A property manager is assigned to each property. The property manager conducts periodic inspections of the home to check for maintenance problems which may cause property damage if not addressed, such as missing tub caulk or a roof that needs cleaning. We observe the care the tenants are taking of the property and check for unauthorized residents or pets.
We handle all emergencies at the rental property. If a hot water heater starts leaking on New Year’s Eve, the tenants call us instead of you. If there’s a leak from the upstairs condo’s bathroom, we’ll deal with the homeowners’ association. If there’s damage from a storm, if asked, we’ll call the insurance company and work with the adjuster.
When the tenant vacates the property the property manager will conduct a move-out inspection, determine charges for which the tenant is responsible, make arrangements to have the work done and make sure the deposit accounting is completed per the Washington Landlord/Tenant Act. We take all phone calls from past tenants if the deposit accounting is disputed.
Coldwell Banker Bain Property Management complies with all aspects of federal Fair Housing laws, the Washington State Landlord/Tenant Act and all city and county rental ordinances and laws.
Coldwell Banker Bain also offers “full service” commercial real estate management services.
If you are interested in our management services, please let us know. We would be happy to meet with you.
