-- August 4, 2013 – Minneapolis, MN – The housing market has felt the pain of the recent recession like no other industry. One minute it's a buyers market, the next minute it's a sellers market and the result of this topsy turvy fluctuation has been an increase in property owners renting their properties instead of taking on the arduous task of selling them during this difficult economic climate. Because of this trend, rental property management companies are seeing an equal increase in competition within the industry. Minnesota Property Leasing Services, LLC, DBA MPLS Rent is an extraordinary property management (http://www.mplsrent.com/)
company in a sea of many.
“What makes us different is really basic.” Stated Joe Kirkwood, founder and owner of MPLS Rent (http://www.mplsrent.com/)
. “We are putting 'people' back into the equation. Instead of simply going through the motions of sticking tenants in empty properties, we look at personality, character, and the needs and wants of not only the renter but of our clients also.”
Kirkwood's extensive tenant placement program has proven effective time and time again and is just one of the steps to a successful rental property management (http://www.mplsrent.com/
) campaign. MPLS Rent has developed an eight (8) step program to simplify the process for landlords. First of all, Kirkwood and his agents will give an accurate valuation of the property in order to determine the ideal pricing to move the rental quickly, followed by full preparation of the rental not only for inspection for rental licensing but also for the optimum “first impression” during marketing of the property and showings. Each showing will be attended by an experienced agent from MPLS Rent to address any and all questions or concerns, right there on the spot.
Once a compatible combination of renter, property and landlord has become apparent, MPLS takes control, running background checks; criminal, credit and employment history. Once the tenant is cleared and the property owner accepts the terms, MPLS Rent will handle drawing up the lease, inspecting the property prior to move-in, collecting security deposits, fees and required rent payments. However, the service doesn't stop there.
“We handle all of the maintenance and repairs for all of our rental properties.”
Kirkwood offered. “We make sure to work only with experienced, dependable contractors who provide quality work at an affordable price. Simply put, we make sure the problem gets attention quickly, which keeps our clients worry free.”
