The business of Property management
- Your Business!
A common misconception within the
real estate industry is that property managers manage properties. The
management agent is traditionally viewed as the property “caretaker”,
responsible for mundane, though essential tasks as supervising landscaping and
janitorial services, and responding to tenant’s concerns. Of course, any
property owner serious about the economic performance of his or her property,
would argue that a great deal more is required to successfully manage their
most valuable asset.
For this reason, American Property
Management prides itself not on property management, but rather, business
management for real estate assets. After all, today’s real estate landscape is far more complex than merely
addressing aesthetics of a given property. A successful manager must be
adept not only at specifying and supervising the physical requirements of a
property, but more important, the manager must be knowledgeable about the managed
property’s economic potential and limitations.
The skill required to be all things
to a property comes not from a single “wunderkind” within an organization, but from a team of carefully
selected professionals, proficient within their unique area of specialization.
As such, American Property Management has created company divisions that focus
on every aspect of a property’s
operation, including brokerage and leasing, financial accounting, property
supervision, physical inspection, marketing, client relations, and, of course,
American Property Management strives
to be superior in our market by focusing on what truly counts to our clients, the
business of property management - your business.

Highly Competitive and Innovative
American Property Management is
perhaps one on the few management companies that promotes innovative fee
options for their clients:
Performance Fee Structure
Designed to allow clients to control
costs, management is rewarded for maintaining high occupancy through a
graduated compensation schedule based upon property occupancy.
Selective Management Services
Designed for the property owner who
does not require full-service management, American Property Management can
provide first class management services at an affordable price. We have
designed our unique fee structure by allowing clients to select only services
they desire, thereby maximizing value and saving precious funds.
Fixed Fee Structure
Designed to provide predictable cost
for our client, this structure is the traditional arrangement in which fees are
a predetermined percentage of rental income.
Working together with our clients,
we can design a management fee program custom suited to their needs.
Your property will benefit from
detailed expense reviews and wholesale pricing for recurring and non-recurring
expenses. Using our portfolio as leverage, American Property Management
negotiates large scale contracts with bottom line prices from service
providers. In many cases, our cost reductions alone have well exceeded
our management fee!
American Property Management is committed
to optimizing rental income. Our strategies include creating large pools
of potential applicants and carefully selecting the most qualified. We
carefully survey and analyze the potential renter pool and the aggressively
pursue these target markets using a diverse variety of innovative and
traditional means. The combination of marketing, screening, and leasing
abilities ensures maximization of rental income.
Adding value to your apartment
operation is our primary business and we employ the most sophisticated
resources with this goal in mind. We are confident that we can maximize
your building’s potential and increase your bottom-line.
American Property Management prides
itself on the ability to provide “full-service” support for all client needs. Accordingly, we assist
owners with loan auditing, utility auditing, brokerage and many other extended
American Property Management will
develop a custom and targeted management plan specific for your property.
Management Plan Execution
Development of a management plan
requires gathering as much information as possible about the subject property,
especially relating to its operating potential. American Property
Management in conjunction with the property owner will complete a detailed
analysis of the building as it relates to the market and the property’s ability to attract tenants.
The development and execution of the
management plan will allow American Property Management and the management team
to anticipate problems and capitalization on the opportunities that the
apartment building will encounter in the marketplace. Having identified
and evaluated management and marketing opportunities, American Property
Management can help determine the best allocation of resources.
Reporting is a critical link in the
relationship between an owner and the management team. Throughout the
entire management and marketing program for your property, communication
between American Property Management and the ownership will be paramount.
Our reporting system will serve two primary functions: It will dispense timely
information and it will help in monitoring the progress of all management team
members. Our company will work closely with you to provide updates of all
management and marketing activities. All interested parties will receive
timely updates of all pertinent data. Standard reports include weekly
leasing summary, advertising summary, physical inspection summary and a
financial reporting package.
It has been our experience that such
meetings are more frequent during the early stages of the program, and are very
useful in setting the guidelines for procedures and coordination between
members of the management team and yourself. A schedule for these
strategic meeting will be developed upon commencement of our services.
