Cantrell Company LLC specializes in residential property management in the greater Springfield area. Our business strategy is designed to save you money every step of the way, so that our management pays for itself. Since we know your time is valuable, we take care of everything between finding the tenant to moving them out. We know the modern renter operates online, which is where we thrive. According to www.rentbits.com, a real-estate data analysis company, "A majority of renters (72%) say they begin their search online. In fact, only 17% go to the newspaper, 5% look for yard signs, and another 5% rely on referrals from friends and/or family."
Comprehensive Marketing and Advertising
Each day your property is vacant, you are losing money. We use comprehensive marketing strategies on Google and Facebook in pair with our property management software. Every property is posted to the top rental sites like Zillow.com, Trulia.com, Rentals.com, and many more. Properties are also listed on our website, where we direct many of our prospective tenants.
Online Presence and Photography
A property's online presence should be taken seriously as most leads will come from the internet. The most important aspect of your property's online presence is photography. We take care of all of the photography for each of our landlords. It is an important element for advertising and transparency to the renters. Renters appreciate being able to see the home online before scheduling a showing.
Online Screening and Tenant Selection
Placing the wrong tenant can quickly cost you what you save by managing a property yourself. Every tenant application is evaluated based on credit, criminal background, sex offender registry (where allowed by law), employment verification and residential/rental history. Our thorough screening complies with all applicable laws, including Fair Housing and Fair Credit Reporting Act. When we do find a tenant that meets your qualifications, we schedule an online lease signing and a move-in condition assessment with the approved tenant.
Rental Collection and Online Payments
Our software allows you to choose when you want to collect rent along with when late fees are to be applied. Our collection process is professional but stern, and we are extremely diligent with our systematic process. Tenants have the ability to pay rent in multiple different ways online, which lowers the chance of rent being late due to a payment inconvenience for the renter. We also strive to get all of our tenants set up on recurring monthly payments, making rent collection effortless for both parties.
Monthly Business Reports
The Owner Statement is a simple cash in, cash out report meant to help owners understand their monthly distribution and property balance, and see important transactions dated in a specific time frame. Owners are able to request any and all information regarding their properties and tenants.
Owners have access to their owner portal by using an email and password. Inside of the owner portal our owners can see any information or ledgers from our tenant and property data. All ledgers can be downloaded as a .PDF file.
