Managing a property yourself not only takes a lot of time and money, but it can also be stressful.
Not all landlords realize the significant cost and demanding lifestyle required of a property owner. The monetary costs may be easy to calculate, but what about the value of the hours and days spent on other management tasks? Unfortunately, what many property investors fail to realize is the high cost and demanding lifestyle that accompanies their investment if they choose to self-manage.
Many self-managing landlords work below their pay grade, spending too much money and time managing their rental properties, and ultimately receiving minimal return-on-investment (ROI). Zenith will help landlords avoid the cost, hassle, and liability associated with managing a property by handling all the responsibilities that goes along with being a landlord/homeowner.
Zenith is a full-service property management company that handles all of the details to save you time, work, and stress. We make owning income property hassle-free!
Zenith’s experienced Property Management team knows all of the landlord/tenant laws for Clark County, the State of Washington, and the Federal government’s Fair Housing Laws. We are in tune with current rent values, vacancy factors and we use expert marketing tactics to earn our Owners a reliable income stream quicker than our competition.
Zenith has the resources and experience to perform thorough background checks on prospective tenants and document move-in and move-out condition reports. We understand and follow all Fair Housing Laws as required by Washington State and we stay abreast on all other landlord/tenant laws.
A professional property manager saves money for the investor. In most instances, your leasing and management fees are usually tax-deductible.
The answer is yes and no. In an effort to ensure the quality of the vendor and the repairs, Zenith requires trade licenses and current proof of insurance from all of our vendors. If a property owner insists on using their own company to service their rental property, it is necessary for their vendor to provide the same documentation we require. In the case of after-hours or emergency calls, Zenith contacts our primary on-call vendor.
Yes, Zenith Properties NW is one of the few property management companies in our area to include virtual tours in our marketing. These tours allow potential tenants to get a full walk-through tour of the property at their convenience. We create these video tours at no additional cost to our owners
Zenith requests this endorsement because we care about protecting the assets of our Owners. It is important to us that you understand that if your insurance company does not provide the needed coverage you will be personally liable if there is a claim.
By listing Zenith with the Additional Insured endorsement on your rental dwelling policy, you are requesting your insurance agency to defend both you and Zenith should a claim arise. You as Owner and Zenith as Manager would be represented as one party together, accruing only one set of defending attorney’s fees, which would be paid by your insurance company.
By failing to list Zenith as an Additional Insured on your rental dwelling insurance policy, you the Owner are responsible to indemnify Zenith. Any legal costs and settlements would be your personal responsibility.
As you can see, the Additional Insured endorsement is in your best interest as you endeavor to protect your rental home and many other assets.
Zenith Properties wants to focus on managing your rental home. With a minimum of three contractors per trade, Zenith has the ability to respond quickly to tenant requests and get repairs done in a timely manner. Additionally, because we give our valued vendors so much work, we are able to negotiate better prices. Our owners appreciate this cost-effective, timely attention to maintenance.
Zenith retains all late fees to cover the extra cost of labor to retrieve the late fees.
By completing thorough screenings and offering multiple ways for tenants to pay rent, Zenith keeps our delinquency rates low! When rents are not received on time, we follow a comprehensive process for retrieving the missing funds, including personal contact with the tenant and the serving of a 3-day Notice to Comply or Quit. Zenith retains all tenant-paid late fees to cover the cost of this extra labor.
Of course, but the tenant must complete an application, pay the application fee, and be approved, per the terms of Zenith’s Rental Criteria, after screening.
Tenants expect rental homes to include most kitchen appliances, including oven/range and refrigerator. Microwaves are not required to be provided. Owners may leave washer/dryers in the property, but Zenith recommends them to be tenant maintained.
As a homeowner, you are responsible for gutter cleanings, tree trimming, and crawl space access.
On the 20th of each month or the next business day after the 20th.
Zenith publishes a comprehensive review of property activity in an Owner Statement and sends owner disbursement funds by direct ACH deposit on the 20th of each month (or the next business day after the 20th).
