Property Management Services

Gonnering Realty offers full service property management for apartment buildings, townhouses, single family homes, and multi-family homes. Currently, Gonnering manages multiple properties in both Kenosha and Racine Wisconsin. Here are a few reasons why it would be beneficial to Gonnering Realty to be your property manager.

  • A property manager has his/her own systems in place to effectively collect rent and maintain on-time payments. Especially if you are a small investor, with a limited number of properties, not being able to maintain consistent payments is going to significantly affect your cash flow.

  • Rental Rates. A property manager is going to make sure your rental rates are competitive, which is the key to securing (and keeping) tenants in your property.

  • There is a multitude of applicable laws and regulations that you are going to need to abide by when renting and maintaining your rental property. These include local, state and federal regulations, as well as fair housing regulations (such as the ADA). A property manager can help you avoid lawsuits by keeping up to date and in compliance with these regulations.

  • Marketing and Advertising. A good property manager is going to have experience in offline and online marketing, as well as local opportunities, which will increase the exposure of your properties. Carrying a vacant property can be extremely expensive, and is an expense you want to avoid whenever possible

  • Inspections. Being extra vigilant in the care of your rental property is critical to the maintenance of your investment. Through routine inspections, a property manager can find and repair problems before they grow into expensive endeavors. It is standard for property managers to perform inspections before a tenant moves in, during their lease, and after the tenant moves out.

  • Tenants. Securing tenants can be a time consuming process. Depending on the extensiveness of requirements for your rental properties, a property manager can take care of securing all criminal background and security checks, credit reports, employment verification, and previous landlord references. In addition all tenant disputes, conflict resolution and emergency maintenance will all go through a property manager, who will involve you at his or her discretion.
