I've had a bad experience with my current property management company, especially when it comes to tenant placement. One of my apartments was empty for almost 6 months - even though I referred several interested people to them, the management company never got around to showing the place and kept making excuses.
When I still lived in Philly and did the showings myself, it only took me around 2-3 weeks per apartment to find a new tenant (around 5 showings usually). So I feel pretty confident that the quality of the apartments and price point are not the issue. Also, several of the tenants who I placed last year renewed for a second year and therefore seem happy there.
Does anyone have a good recommendation for property management companies in the University/West Philly area? I am currently traveling abroad, so it is not feasible to manage it myself. Someone recommended "Your Local Leasing Co" to me in the past but it seems like they have TERRIBLE yelp reviews - any experiences with them?
I own several rental properties in West Philly and I use a new, growing property management company called Kardan Noble. They're still working out some of the kinks in their reporting systems, but if you want your properties rented quickly at healthy rents and with happy tenants, they can't be beat. Ping me directly and I'll be happy to give you more details and help make an introduction.
