Why You Should Hire a Property Manager in Charlotte NC

Nancy Braun Realtors

In the latest episode of Charlotte Today, Nancy Braun shares some compelling reasons why hiring a property manager is a smart move.

Managing a rental property can be financially rewarding. You get to sit back and collect rent. However, it also comes with many unique challenges such as a tenant who refuses to pay and maintenance problems. Being a landlord requires serious commitment and effort.

Nancy talks about why it is in your best interest to hire a property manager. Her team of experts at Carolina Property Management have access to a wealth of resources that enable them to find new tenants faster, helping you keep your vacancy rates down.

Having a property manager also reduces your legal and financial headaches. An excellent property manager will know the latest landlord-tenant laws, helping you steer clear of any potential lawsuit. Aside from federal law, each state and municipality has its own legal rules concerning tenant screening, safety and condition of the property, inspections, evictions, and more.

You can also preserve the value of your investment with regular maintenance. With Nancy’s team, you have access to top maintenance staff, as well as their network of licensed contractors who have already been vetted for good pricing and quality work. You don’t have to be the on-call maintenance person anymore. With a property manager, you will have someone perform routine maintenance for you, preventing small issues from becoming major problems.

Your property manager can also help you set the right rental rates based on a thorough market study of your area. This will ensure that you can maximize your monthly income while maintaining a low vacancy rate.

By hiring a property manager to take care income property, you’ll be free to spend your time identifying further investment opportunities or doing things that you love. Call Nancy Braun today at (704) 997-3794 to get started.

Eugene: If you own a rental home, you know what a big job it is to lease and maintain a property that’s why you should consider hiring a property manager to help you.

Coleen: Here with more is Nancy Braun with Carolina Property Management. Nancy, good morning and welcome to Charlotte Today.

Nancy: Good Morning.

Coleen: A lot of people have rental properties as an investment or another means of income. So let’s talk about reasons why those people should hire a property manager. The first being, they can see because they can see because it costs them a lot of money.

Nancy: That’s right, so we have a database of thousands of tenants that are already waiting and looking for properties so we can get our properties leased typically within 15 days. Regular homeowners try to put it on craigslist, they try to market it, they put a little sign on the yard, it can take months before they have a tenant, that’s going to cost them thousands of dollars of a vacant home, versus spending a few hundred dollars for a property manager to maintain the property, take care of it in many, many different aspects and get it occupied so they’re not going to lose all that income.

Eugene: You know what my mom refused to get a property manager she wanted to do it on her own but this component she doesn’t know about the fair housing laws, strict rules she doesn’t know, can you tell us about that?

Nancy: That’s right, so we’re all under the same guidelines. So we have to abide by the fair housing laws, we have to make sure we’re not discriminatory, that we don’t do anything in violation of the ADA Act which is American Disabilities Act. And there’s even some rules about pets, so people can say, that’s a service dog and if I say “No pets allowed”, you’re in violation of those rules as well because that’s a disability.

Coleen: And those are the things that you and your team of experts know. It’s second nature to you while a homeowner may not know those things.

Nancy: You can’t ask for instance “Oh, how old are your children?” or “Do you have children?” Simple thing, you know, that’s discrimination.

Coleen: Alright, also maintenance calls. If you’re a homeowner you may not want to deal with those calls late at night or on the weekend, a property manager can fill that for you and there are a lot of reasons why it’s a good thing too, aside from the inconvenience of it.

Nancy: That’s right, so It is inconvenient and there’s going to be calls late at night like you said but we also have a pool of contractors that can jump out and come in and service the property really quickly. Because we give a volume of business to them so they are going to put us at the top of their list, and they give us competitive bids, they’re going to be competitive so it’s actually going to save them money because we give them such a volume of business. That is critical,  not just handling the emergencies, it’s the ongoing maintenance of the property, it’s the things that you might overlook. The roof might need to be replaced. The peeling of the paint on the exterior may lead to wood rot if you ignore it. What about termites? So we’re going to make sure that the smoke detectors are working, the carbon monoxide detectors. We go in and check to make sure the filters are being changed. That’s something that maybe a regular layperson homeowner might not think about.

Coleen: When the property is well maintained, it really helps the tenant that you might have in your home too, right?

Nancy: That’s right. You’re going to get a, far better quality tenant if that home is showing beautifully just like a regular home for sale. So it’s got to shine, it’s got to be sparkling. You know I have a tenant moving in at one of my properties, I have a deep cleaning going on right now. I have landscaping, pine needles being put out, tree limbs being trimmed. That way when I start out fresh, that tenant’s going to feel like “This is a great home, I’m going to maintain it and take care of it” because obviously the owner does too.

Eugene: The owner may not live in the same city or state and the tenant he could be there or she could be there. You do online component that really service both the tenant and the customer, right?

Nancy: So the tenant can go ahead and go online and do a maintenance request, they can also make their payments online. The homeowner can go online and see all the reports, all the repairs that are being done, submit that to their accountant for taxes they can know what’s happening. So they’re abreast of the condition of their property. They see pictures so they have access to all that. The online component’s great. But the other thing, that California person might know what the rental rates are so they might be shooting in the dark, they might say “Well I’ve rented out for a thousand dollars, well I might be able to get fifteen hundred because I have the data and the stats,  and I know neighborhood areas and I know which areas are more desirable than others for tenants.

Coleen: Also, property managers can manage the trust account for security deposit retention.

Nancy: That’s right, so most people that are not in the industry don’t realize that the security deposit must be put in a trust account. If it’s not in a trust account, they might be forfeiting that security deposit so if you want to hold back that security deposit after the tenant leaves because they didn’t pay rent, they caused damage. That tenant might say “Well where is the evidence that it was being held in a trust account?” and if not the judge is going to rule in favor of the tenant.

Coleen: Lots of compelling reasons to hire a property manager for sure. To learn more, call Carolina Property Management, the number is 704 550 4854, again 704 550 4854. You can also visit, NancyHasTheTenants.com go to that website NancyHasTheTenants.com. Nancy Braun, thank you.

Nancy: Thank you so much, it was a pleasure!

Strategies for Selling Your Home at Top Dollar by Showcase Realty

Charlotte NC Homes

Are you looking for tried and tested tips for selling your home at top dollar? Selling your home fast and for the most money is not an easy task, but it is possible when you use the right strategies.

Nancy Braun, on her third guesting at Charlotte Today at WCNC NBC, talked about the essential marketing strategies for selling your home quickly and for the highest price.

First on her list is the use of professional photography. With many buyers today beginning their home search online, it’s imperative to showcase your home with stunning professional photography in order to capture the buyers’ attention and to create a positive first impression.

Next, Nancy shared how important the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is and how it allows sellers the widest exposure in advertising their home for sale. She also discussed why marketing a home with online video makes so much sense. Aside from professional photos, a video tour is a very powerful way to showcase the unique features of the home while giving a much more detailed look at the property.

One of the ways to sell your house fast is having the right agent to efficiently and effectively move through the process. Your agent should be proactively calling potential buyers, communicating with existing customers, and constantly following up on new leads.

If you’d like to know more information on buying and selling Charlotte NC real estate, call Nancy Braun at (704) 997-3794. An expert when it comes to selling homes, she can sell your house in 30 days or less. 

Nancy Braun on Selling Your Home at Top Dollar

Eugene Robinson: Everyone wants to get top dollar when they put their home up for sale, and this morning we’re going to share some strategies for success.

Colleen Odegaard: Welcome this morning, Nancy Braun with showcase realty. Nancy, Good Morning and thank you for being here.

Nancy: Good Morning!

Colleen Odegaard: Alright I like this, you’ve got 5 essential marketing strategies to help people get top dollar for their house. The first one, and this is important: Use professional photos, why is that so critical?

Nancy: Well, in the old days, as realtors, we used to be able to find the homes for our clients and they didn’t have access to the internet like we do. Today, people now search on the internet for homes. They look in the internet, on different sites and they are going to be attracted based on the photos. So now, I’m not necessarily honing in and trying to find the home, the client comes to me, they hand me a bunch of MLS numbers that they found on various websites and say “I want to see this home”, “I wanna see that home”. First and impression is everything, photography is everything. So you really have to make sure you have someone who understands how to take photos of homes, not just a photographer that takes pictures of people. It’s a very different thing.

Colleen Odegaard: It is different, I’ve seen people use cell phone picture and the room is dark and it’s not centered right and I thought, Do you people want to sell your house, why would you use pictures like that?

Nancy: That’s right, professional photography is very expensive. You also need to have the editing ability, so editing programs, we at Showcase have our own professional photographer on staff.

Colleen Odegaard: That’s great, great.

Eugene Robinson: Okay, next is the MLS. What is the MLS? What is it? Why does it have to be enticing and complete?

Nancy: MLS is what feeds to all the other websites. All the information, the description of the property, all the features of your home is all gonna be laid out by the real estate agent, to promote your home. Then it feeds into Zillow and some of the other popular website, and it’s very important that you spend a lot of time honing in and making sure you’re really capturing all the enticing features of your home. I would suggest that if you do have your home in the market or you’re planning to have your home on the market, look at your MLS Sheet. Ask your agent to send it to you as a proof so you can make sure you have everything on there that you want and are really important features. It might not just be the home, it might be the location, it might be near some really great shopping, or great access to certain highways, or lakes, or recreation areas. So you want to make the captions and descriptions emotionally engaging, not just technical.

Colleen Odegaard: Yes, that’s good advice. You’re good, Nancy. What about the use of video?

Nancy: Videos are keys. I went on a listing appointment recently, and the guys was about 35 years old. And he said, “Do you do video?” I go, “Oh my gosh, of course we do video” Then he said “Well that’s good ‘coz I won’t even look at a listing online unless there’s a video attached. And I said “Why is that?” “’Coz I don’t like clicking through the photos, it’s too hard.” A lot of people also--- we don’t like this but as a business owner--- but reality is, a lot of employees are looking at homes while they are working. So they might have their cell phone right beside them, and they want the video to play while they’re working.

Colleen Odegaard: So video tour of the property for sale?

Nancy: Yes, the video also gives them the 3D kind of involvement: How’s the flow of the home? How does it feel when you enter? There’s a lot of different styles of videos, a lot of real estate agents kind of have the slideshow of the flat photos but you can also have real video where you’re actually in the home shooting the video.

Colleen Odegaard: And which is what you use, we saw you in that one video we showed just a moment ago.

Nancy: Right.

Eugene Robinson: So where should we post these videos?

Nancy: We post them on Facebook, on social media, and you can post it on Zillow. Zillow also has something that a lot of people don’t realize that they have: an app that the RealtorⓇ can access where they can do this 2-minute video just by walking through the home using the app. I would say majority of the listings on Zillow don’t have this posted, but supposedly. Zillow said they get 4 times more views if they have that video attached to their program.

Colleen Odegaard: Another strategy you have for success when it comes to a good sale: Fast lead follow up right? Like you can’t sleep on it man, let’s make it snappy.

Nancy: Everyone is instant, everyone is used to the internet, they want instant response. So if you return someone’s inquiry, whether it’s an email or a voicemail or a call, two hours later, they’ve moved on to another property, they’re in another neighborhood, so they need that instant, instant return. You want to be sure that the RealtorⓇ you’re working with is going to respond to the calls and the emails immediately while the person’s engaged on that house.

Colleen Odegaard: You’re so right about that, people are impatient when it comes to real estate. When somebody wants to see a house and they want to make an offer, they want to do it that minute, not two hours later. That’ so true.

Nancy: Yes, in this world, everything’s instant now. There’s a study that’s been done in hospitality industry that says: 10 years ago, people would be okay waiting in line when they went to a hotel for up to four minutes, they wouldn’t get anxious. Now it’s 20 seconds--- twenty seconds, that’s how much patience we have.

Colleen Odegaard: Oh my gosh.

Eugene Robinson: Wow.

Colleen Odegaard: We have to calm down. Makes your job really hard, doesn’t it?

Nancy: Yes, and people don’t want to have the phone ringing three times, you have to answer your phone on the second ring or they think that you’re ignoring them.

Colleen Odegaard: Which is why at Showcase Realty, you have so many people on staff ready to answer the call.
