Here's how Own It Detroit helps real estate investors do more with rental properties in the Dearborn Heights, MI area as a full-service real estate investment company.

First, What We Love About Dearborn Heights

The Ford Motor Company provides jobs for many area residents. Investors choose this area to provide high-quality workforce housing to a diverse population in a suburban neighborhood that also offers many amenities of big city life. 

If you're not local to the area, you need the best property management company in Dearborn Heights to:

How the Best Real Estate Investment Partner Builds Your Success in Dearborn Heights

Serious investors with large portfolios need more than a property manager to build and support long-term success through local real estate opportunities. They need a real estate investment partner with expertise in every area of buying and managing local real estate!

Dearborn Heights is a unique community that requires local know-how to help investors get the most out of their properties.

Whether you choose turnkey solutions or more traditional buy-and-hold rental properties for your portfolio, you need an expert who can handle anything you add to your lineup of investment properties—or you risk more liabilities than successes.

The best property management and real estate investment company listens to your goals and customizes a plan to make sure you get there. No matter how many properties you own, choose a property manager who can meet your needs now—and help you scale to be as big as you want to be in this market. 

One Partner Is Everything You Need

Working with multiple local agencies can make it challenging to meet your financial goals. Communicating your long-term income plans to a broker, a contractor, and a property manager—then expecting them all to come together to maximize your success—isn't always the best approach to a cohesive strategy that prioritizes your goals.

So, choosing a real estate investment partner who can do all of those things for you is a better strategy to build your portfolio!

Our team offers brokerage services, turnkey investment opportunities and management, coordination for renovations, and expert property management for Dearborn Heights real estate to make our services a one-stop shop for investors to experience the best success. 

When you streamline your local professional help into one partnership, you save time, reduce errors, and ensure that every aspect of the real estate investment process works as a single unit toward your success. We listen and understand your goals, then work as a team to maximize your income.

Our Brokerage Services Are Unique

Not every local property manager offers brokerage services, too!

With our in-house brokerage team working with our property managers, we can spot new investment properties with the best potential for excellent buy-and-hold long-term income. 


Rental-Ready Done Right

The wrong rehab—or too much rehab—can be an expensive mistake for investors. However, with our turnkey solutions, investors can build a portfolio with rental-ready properties and often already have a resident paying the rent.

Our team understands what Dearborn Heights, MI, renters want, and we apply that knowledge to the ideal rehab solutions with every property we manage.

However, if you choose a more traditional approach to select a property that needs renovations before it can hit the rental market, we can manage every aspect of the rehab process for you.

We recommend the best updates to attract quality renters, and we make sure the job happens within your budget and on time. 

Professional, Ongoing Rental Property Maintenance Makes a Difference

A rental-ready property won't stay that way forever. Without year-round attention, your rentals won't meet the needs of your residents—and you lose money. 

Local renters prefer rental homes that offer professional maintenance services to keep them safe and comfortable!

We know the importance of prioritizing maintenance for our investors and renters. Our expert property management team schedules routine inspections and preventative maintenance for each of your properties throughout the year.

We also respond quickly to emergencies or renter maintenance requests to keep small problems from becoming significant (and expensive) repairs. 

With our approach to ongoing rental property maintenance, we help investors reduce repair costs and annual expenses to keep properties in excellent condition.

Our professional services keep renters happy while improving renewal rates. When your properties stay in excellent condition, you'll also see an increase in property values for your portfolio! 


We Place Only Quality Renters

Keeping excellent renters for more than one lease term helps investors make more money. Our professional property managers won't let a risky resident move into your property.

Selecting quality renters helps protect your investment assets and income while improving your bottom line! Therefore, we apply a thorough tenant screening process to choose only the best renters for all of your Dearborn Heights, MI, rentals. 

With the right combination of our professional services, local experience, and intense focus on your goals, investors can maximize their success in this competitive rental market!

Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to common questions about how Own It Detroit can help you maximize your property investment success.

How does Own It Detroit market rentals for property owners?

We stand behind our marketing efforts so confidently that we don’t charge a marketing fee until we place a qualified tenant in your property! 

That’s right! We do not charge an upfront fee to market your rental properties. Own It Detroit applies our years of experience in marketing rental properties in the Metro Detroit area until we find the right tenant before we assess our professional marketing fees. 

Are we looking for your first tenant? Maybe we’re starting the search for a replacement tenant when your existing renter doesn’t renew. Either way, we apply the same tried-and-true expert strategies to marketing. These strategies include:

  • Applying rental market analysis to determine the best monthly rent price
  • Using professional photos to create a compelling property listing
  • Posting your property’s listing on the major renter search websites, including the Own It Detroit website
  • Providing professional yard signage and other printed collateral

Our renewal process helps us minimize downtime between tenants. As soon as we know your tenant won’t renew their lease, we begin pre-advertising your property to find your next renter! 

To maximize your rental property’s exposure, we maintain a comprehensive list of top rental listing sites, including,,,,, and

How do you ensure that my rental property is well maintained?

We start by placing only the best quality tenants in your rental properties. Quality tenants are neat, honest, credible, responsible, respectful, and take good care of your investment properties.

Own It Detroit also documents the condition of your property at move-in and move-out. This helps us hold tenants accountable for any property damage in excess of normal wear and tear.

Throughout the year, we perform routine property inspections. These efforts help us recognize maintenance needs or damage before they become a significant issue. With four inspections for each lease period, we keep a constant eye on your property—and stay ahead of repairs and seasonal maintenance.

Will I forfeit control of my investments if you manage my property?

Definitely not! Own It Detroit works for and on behalf of property owners. Once we start managing your property, we work according to your goals and with your direction. Our job is to apply our years of experience and property management services expertise to support your financial goals.

How soon do you fill vacancies?

With our aggressive marketing strategies, we ensure that we fill vacant properties as soon as possible. Our pre-advertising strategy and years of experience in the Metro Detroit market are especially effective at reducing vacancy times.

While every property and tenant search is unique, at times, we have been able to find a new tenant for empty rental properties within a day of becoming vacant. However, in slow seasons, it can take up to a month to find the right tenant for an investment property. 

Own It Detroit will never fill a vacant property with the wrong tenant to cut down on your vacancy time. Our goal is not only to fill empty properties quickly but also to fill them with long-term, quality tenants. Quality tenants pay the rent on time, care for your property, and will often renew their lease!

How does Own It Detroit ensure competitive rental rates for my investment properties?

We consider a variety of methods to ensure that properties under our management stay competitively priced. Rental market analysis helps us stay informed about current conditions in the Metro Detroit area. When it’s appropriate, we adjust rental rates to stay competitive while maintaining the best quality tenants in your rental properties. 

Own It Detroit is committed to the highest returns on your investments! Our data-driven approach to setting rental rates keeps your properties competitive. Our years of experience help us master the techniques to maximize the potential profits for our property owners. 

With our team of property managers, you have peace of mind that your property will rent as quickly as possible, to the most qualified tenant, and at the highest rate possible.

When do you send financial reports and payments to property owners?

Own It Detroit provides financial reports via email on a monthly basis as early in the month as we can. We also provide owners with a secure online portal to view all financial reports and information about your rental properties at any time. 

We pay our owners monthly between the 10th and 15th of every month.

How do you handle rental property repairs and maintenance?

Timely and quality property repairs and maintenance could mean the difference between success and failure for your investment properties. However, from our years of experience, we’ve learned that different property owners can have different ideas regarding repairs and maintenance.

Owners can choose to handle their own repairs. When you trust Own It Detroit to manage the maintenance for your rental properties, we always ensure the highest level of repair services for every property.

We work hard to cultivate and maintain excellent relationships with tried-and-tested professional contractors in the Metro Detroit area. Due to the volume of work we offer contractors, we can also provide maintenance services to our investors at competitive prices.
