We evaluate applications in detail to weed out less than desirable applicants.

There should be no surprises when we manage your property.

Evaluating the condition of your property is important. This enables us to better market and to determine if there are any unknown repair needs. An initial evaluation will also includes suggestions regarding needed repairs or décor to assist in making the property appealing and desirable.
Our marketing process involves the Harrisburg community as a whole. We have aligned ourselves with several agencies in the city who seek housing. We constantly develop new relationships with other agents. We also seek to expose RuBec to the community so we are known. We will cross market your property to those who inquire about other properties. All available avenues to market RuBec and your property are undertaken. Syndication of marketing information related to your property is disseminated to websites throughout the country.
We will delve into information received in an application to ensure it is valid and true. We check beyond the information given on applications. Our screening minimally includes:
- Rental History
- Eviction History
- Employment, Wage/Income Check
- Nationwide Criminal Background Check
Security deposits are retained in our NC Security Deposit Trust Account in accordance with the NC Real Estate Commission guidelines. Security deposits are the tenants money but cannot be used to pay rent. Reconciliations are conducted at the end of the lease term which account for damage to the property. Accounting is required within 30 days of move out.
Leases are prepared and executed electronically. There are several addendums included which address and/or reiterate the lease regarding how items such as maintenance, mildew, lawn, drugs, rent payments etc are handled.
