How We Help Your Properties Stand Out


Property Marketing

The success or failure of your Metro Detroit property can depend on keeping it occupied with quality tenants. At Own It Detroit, we put significant effort and resources into effective marketing for our property owners. We leave no tools behind in the toolbox! 

From creating compelling property listings posted on the hottest online rental websites, to utilizing our resources at the local Section 8 Housing Commissions, even working with local VA offices our marketing strategies ensure that only the best tenants occupy your properties. We target the highest-quality tenants to make sure you get paid every month—without the hassles that come with bad renters.

Tenant Screening Process

Tenant Screening

Our sophisticated screening process helps us pick the absolute best candidates as your tenants. Once our marketing campaigns attract a group of high-quality candidates, our screening process helps us avoid placing a potentially bad tenant in your property. Every applicant goes through a background screening process that includes credit history, criminal history, prior rental history, and income and employment verification.

Rent Collection

Rent Collection

Property investors shouldn’t waste time chasing down rental payments every month. At Own It Detroit, we take effective measures to make sure that your tenants pay their rent on time. Our online payment process and reminder system help property investors enjoy a reliable source of income each month.
