The 'Status Quo' Is Not Enough

If you know the history of the Motor City and our real estate, you know that our economy was heavily dependent on manufacturing for a time—the downsizing of which negatively impacted our housing market. However, big names are injecting new life into Detroit: things have changed and continue to improve!

With this growth and potential in mind, Detroit investors can't afford to partner with property managers that are new to how real estate moves in our housing markets. The best Detroit property manager is a seasoned asset to your real estate investment team. At Own It Detroit, we've been through it all! Nothing rattles us: we know the ups and downs and the ins and outs of the Detroit market.

A skilled professional makes it possible for investors to succeed when no one else can.

  • When it's tough to find quality renters, experienced OID property managers still find the best residents for your rentals.

  • When the market causes rental rates to fluctuate, an expert property management company can work with property owners and renters to make sure you don't lose rental income. 

  • When it's challenging to find new investment properties for your portfolio, the best property managers know how to locate off-market properties that keep you growing through a downturn in real estate.

A 'status quo' property manager will do a fine job of keeping your properties in good condition and managing rent collections. However, when they struggle to find renters or new properties, your long-term wealth struggles equally. Your choice in full-service property management is directly related to your success as a property investor!

They Do (and Are) More

You're not new to the mechanics of investing in real estate. You know (at the bare minimum) the basics of property management. Any property manager can:

However, your investment income is only as good as your property manager. If you want 'basic' income, then settle for a 'basic' property management company—and kiss serious cash-on-cash returns goodbye. We know that for elite investors, this is an insulting experience and a waste of your time: you need an elite team that can provide elite returns.

At Own It Detroit Property Management, we never settle for the bare minimum: we always provide best-in-class service. It doesn't excite us to go through the motions when managing a real estate portfolio. What excites us is providing a superior level of service to create serious cash returns for property owners.

The best property manager accomplishes all of the basics—but doesn't stop there. If you want the 'right' property manager for your portfolio, you need:

  • Online rental payment solutions that make it easy for residents to pay the rent

  • Technology that makes property management services more efficient—so they can do more for investors

  • Insights and long-term experience with the unique nature of the Detroit rental market

  • Licensed brokers to identify new potential rental properties and handle the buying process for you

  • Professional marketing that targets Detroit renters who are the best match for your properties

  • Routine inspections, property maintenance, and renovation services to keep properties operating at their peak

  • Financial reporting that keeps you up-to-date on the performance of every property in your portfolio.

If you haven't experienced this level of excellence from your property manager, you've been missing out on best-in-class service. Imagine how much your income and portfolio can grow when you hire a Detroit property manager who works for you at this level every day. 

They Are Your Partner

The right property manager doesn't manage your properties based on their own goals. A best-in-class property manager operates as your partner based on your goals. If you want to build tremendous cash flow and massive real estate success, there is no better way to work with a property manager—and there is no other option than to choose a partner who operates based on your financial goals!
