Portland Property Management
Let Us Manage Your Portland Rental Property
It is our desire as professional property managers to make your investment
as profitable as possible and to protect your pride of ownership.
We would consider it an honor to be given the opportunity to discuss our services
in detail with you and show you how your property will be managed by Kerr Properties, Inc.
Our staff is knowledgeable in property values, local neighborhoods, and rental markets to advise you on appropriate rental fees for your property. We are thoroughly trained in the inspection of every kind of investment property, from single family homes and condominiums to small plexes.
What we do as your Portland Area property manager:
- Handle legal matters for you. A selection of appropriate standard or custom agreement forms provide legal protection for both you and your property. Evictions can happen to any landlord no matter how well a tenant is screened. Circumstances change in people's lives and they are not able to pay the rent. When this happens the landlord has to go through the costly procedure of evicting the tenant. Our cost effective Eviction Protection program protects our owners from the high cost and time consuming headaches that come with evicting a tenant. This has the potential to save you $300 to $1000+. The only part of an eviction not covered is a jury trial or counter claim, should that be necessary. In the thirty-eight plus years we have been handling evictions for our owners, we have never had to go through a jury trial.
