At Apple Country, we have one goal:
To maximize the rental revenue potential of your property while helping to safeguard the value of your long-term investment.
Whether you have one or one hundred rental properties, we can handle everything from the renter’s application to property upkeep. When we manage your rental property, you can expect the following:
We’ll customize our services to meet your needs
We’ll get to know you so we can learn the goals you have for your investment property, and we’ll visit the property with you so we can gain a thorough understanding of its attributes. We’ll use the information to develop a Property Profile and will tailor a management service program to meet your specific needs.
We’ll price your rental fairly and competitively
The vacation rental market in our area is very competitive, especially in the peak summer and leaf seasons. After visiting your property, we’ll review the current market and draw on our years of experience in Western North Carolina to recommend a monthly rental rate that both you and your tenants will find attractive.
We’ll get the word out
Once you’ve chosen us to manage your property, we will actively market your property through newspaper ads, a posting on our website with an array of attractive photos, professional signage on the property, and our extensive network of contacts in the area.
We’ll handle all the paperwork
We’ll screen all potential renters using a detailed application form and renter review process to ensure that they are both financially capable and responsible. When we find an acceptable renter, we will secure all documents required by NC state laws.
We’ll manage all the maintenance
We strongly recommend establishing an annual maintenance schedule to keep small issues from turning into large problems. If your tenant experiences any issues in the meantime, they can call us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
If an emergency arises, such as a dishwasher breaking or a tree falling, we’ll respond immediately to fix it. Apple Country Realty has been in business for over 30 years, so we have an extensive network of reliable maintenance and repair specialists and general contractors. If major repairs are needed, we will obtain several bids and get your approval before proceeding.
We’ll keep communication open with you and your tenants
We’ll collect all rents and mail checks promptly according to the Property Management Agreement. With our time-proven systems and processes, we will immediately follow up if your tenant’s rent check is late or, if necessary, work with the appropriate parties to pursue legal action if they break the lease.
We’ll periodically check in with all tenants to make sure they’re happy, determine their future plans so you can avoid empty months, and check on the status of your property. When a tenant chooses to leave at the end of their lease, we’ll work closely with them to ensure that they understand and comply with the responsibilities listed on our Move Out Checklist.
We’ll provide monthly financial statements that show all income and disbursements for each of your properties. In addition, we’ll update you regularly on any developments with your tenants or property.
If you’re in the market for additional investment properties, we’re also happy to keep searching for homes that fit your requirements.
Our commitment to integrity
All of our agents are members of the National and Local Associations of Realtors. Not every real estate agent is a realtor. Realtors must take an oath to abide by a strict code of ethics with standards of practice that promote the fair, ethical, and honest treatment of all parties, and are subject to ethics hearings and possible disciplinary action for violations.
We take our responsibility to you and our profession very seriously, and are committed to acting with the highest integrity in our relationship with you.
