Minimizing Vacancies in Fairfax, VA

A long vacancy has the potential to damage and disrupt what you’re earning on your  Fairfax rental property. At Castle Property Management, we have put together a leasing process designed to keep vacancy days to a minimum. We want to keep your rental income consistent and your property occupied. To do that, we’ve put together an effective process that focuses on great property marketing, responsive tenant showings, and a screening process that’s thorough without dragging on longer than it needs to. Our goal is always to deliver a higher standard of residential property management.

 

Best-In-Class Property Management in Fairfax

 Good property management in Fairfax starts with good leasing. Our team specializes in putting together the processes that are needed to find, screen, and place an outstanding tenant who meets our criteria. Our property management technology helps with showing properties, marketing homes, and screening tenants. Add that to our existing customer service priorities, and you’ll find the best possible leasing and management experience for your Fairfax investment properties. 

Strategic Marketing & Advertising

We kick off the leasing process with a careful consideration of the market and how it affects the way your property is priced and advertised. Your Castle Property Management team may suggest some minor improvements and updates before we put your property on the market to ensure it’s attention-grabbing and desirable to the best tenants. Then, we’ll take some professional photographs, put together a listing that’s both descriptive and concise, and share it with a large pool of potential tenants who are looking for a new rental home in Fairfax. 

We know which rental sites Fairfax tenants are using, and we make sure your available property is showing up in front of anyone who may be looking for a home like yours, in the price range we’ve established. We also put your property on our own website, which attracts a lot of traffic, and we reach out to our own professional networks to help spread the word. All of these marketing efforts lead to faster leasing. 

Responsive Tenant Showings

Showings are perhaps the most important part of leasing a Fairfax property. The goal of our marketing is to draw tenants to see your home in person. We know that when good tenants see your home, they’ll be ready to talk about an application. So, we make it easy for them to schedule and attend a showing. 

We don’t have a strict schedule or limited hours for when tenants can see your home. There’s no scheduling conflicts or lost time due to no-shows. We’ve developed a responsive showing process that allows us to gather a few critical pieces of information, ask a few important pre-screening questions, and then give prospective tenants the ability to see the home when it’s most convenient for them. 

Good tenants appreciate this, and when they can see the home on their own time and in their own way – we’re more likely to get an application submitted. This, of course, leads to lower vacancy loss. 

Better Tenant Screening

Most Fairfax rental property owners just want a tenant who will pay rent. If you’re working with Castle Property Management, you’re going to get a lot more than that. 

Yes, we want a tenant who pays rent on time. But we also expect a tenant who will keep the home clean and maintained. We want a tenant who will notify us immediately if maintenance is needed and communicate openly. We want a long-term tenant, who is going to follow the lease terms and hopefully renew that lease when the time comes. 

We look for reliable, long term tenants who more than meet our strict rental standards. While following all fair housing requirements, we carefully and consistently screen tenants for:

  • Credit
  • Income
  • Past evictions
  • Rental history
  • Criminal records

We screen a lot of tenants, and we’re good at spotting red flags. Our process is largely automated, which keeps it fast and objective. But we also verify everything and make sure the tenant is who they say they are.

Joe and Rachel have been amazing. My rental has had some maintenance issues and the owners' have a warranty company which has than responsive vendors. I am not sure how I would have handled all of this without them being on top of it and going over and beyond.

Very happy with Castle property Management. They take care of everything. They are prompt, on top of it all, and pleasant to work with as well. Rachel, especially, is amazing. I feel like I don't have any worries while they are handling my rental.

I rented out a property with McGrath Real Estate for 7 years before it was acquired by a national chain. After it was acquired I felt the service level and attentiveness to client needs degraded a lot. After what I felt were a few bad experiences regarding tenancy decisions I desparately needed someone else so I wouldn't have to worry while being abroad. Glad I found Castle PM. Approach is consultative and collaborative. They give honest and realistic feedback. Rachel is great on the day to day and very responsive. I can't stress enough how relieving it was to have a mgmt co I felt I could trust again and more like a partner than a number. If you are looking to rent out I highly recommend you consider Castle PM. I was more or less able to relax again and let a property mgmt comlany do what it's supposed to do...manage property.

The management company has been great and very easy to work with. Any time we have needed help with maintenance requests or just general follow up, they have been on top of things. The vendors they contract with are always professional and work efficiently and effectively.
