This is usually one of the first questions asked. We charge a percentage fee based on the gross rents. The fee can range from 8% for multiple units and high gross rent to 10% for a single unit. Prices and circustance can vary wildly in this industry, so it’s best to interview us for a free customized estimate.
When will I receive my rent?
We make owner payments on or about the 19th of the month, because we must wait until the tenants’ rent checks have cleared and all of the vendor and subcontractors have been paid.
Can I do my own repairs?
Of course! The house is yours, and we work for you. There are a few practices we ask you to keep, but this is one of the best ways to reap the years of expertise we have and keep costs down.
Which areas do you manage?
We manage property all over Lane County and even into some parts of Linn and Benton County. If you’re not sure if it’s in our “area” or not, ask us! If it’s outside our management range, the least we can do is direct you to someone who can or advise you with management concerns.
What kind of properties do you manage?
We manage most residential properties including single family, multi-family and apartments.
How much security deposit do you charge the tenants?
Our standard deposit is $25 more than the rent. If you allow pets in your rental, there will be an additional three-hundred dollars deposit per pet added onto that.
Are you a licensed property manager?
Yes, we have three licensed property mangers on staff – Ed Waggoner, Josh Reece and Tim Waggoner. They’ve took the necessary courses and went through the training to become so, and frequent the Property Management classes in the area to always become more skilled in their profession.
What will you do to rent my house?
Empire will list your property on Craigslist, Zillow, Trulia, Hotpads and few other internet sites. Furthermore, we schedule regular showings and show the properties personally. We are committed to renting your property in the shortest time possible.
