Upcoming Improvements - Part 2

Todd Ortscheid - Monday, March 26, 2018


In this video, Todd Ortscheid talks about more upcoming improvements you can expect from #GTLRealEstate.

Among those improvements include educational video blogs and virtual tours, which are basically slideshows of your properties with a voice-over description that talks about the benefits of renting your property. It also comes with an introduction that talks about why tenants should rent from us. These virtual tours have been proven to help rent out properties faster, as the description also includes keywords that will help tenants find your properties faster online. They also give us an edge, especially with millennial renters who want to rent with companies that keep up with the latest in technology.

We will also be doing video inspections of your properties. Rather than just taking pictures, we will be recording high-definition videos that will be used to document move-ins and move-outs. These will definitely help with challenges to the security deposits, as videos are irrefutable proof and will most likely stop tenants from challenging any charges. They will definitely lessen any legal costs you might have over disputes and hold tenants accountable for the condition they leave your properties in.

Please watch out for more videos about our upcoming improvements. If you have further questions about our excellent property management services or want to see our available #AtlantaHomesforRent or our #DaytonaBeachHomesforRent, please don't hesitate to call us.

Key Things to Look For in an Atlanta Property Manager

Todd Ortscheid - Wednesday, March 21, 2018


In this video, Todd Ortscheid of #GTLRealEstate, talks about what you should look for in a property manager, if you are considering hiring one for your rental properties.

While not all property managers are created equal, and certainly not one-size-fits-all, there are certain qualities that all landlords should be looking for in a property management company.

First off, you need to find a company that documents both a move-in and move-out because if there were to be any legal challenges that come up, the company will be able to prove that the tenants are being charged the correct amount in damages. Also, a good company will collect a security deposit, so that the owner has something to use for repairs, should they be necessary.

Second, an application with all the relevant details--social security number, date of birth or a driver's license is important in case we need to go after a tenant to collect what they owe.

It is really important to find a reputable property management company that does what they should be doing, which is first and foremost, is to protect their clients. You should also check out the NARPM website, and check out what the other NARPM members are doing. These are what you should be looking out for when you want to hire a property management company, to make sure your properties will be well taken care of.

Upcoming Improvements - Part 1

Todd Ortscheid - Monday, March 19, 2018


In this video, Todd Ortscheid of #GTLRealEstate, talks about the improvements you can expect this year, as well the new things that are coming soon.

These new changes include the new rent money system, which has been emailed to all our clients. This new cash payment system will get us the funds in two business days, as soon as the tenant has paid the rent at any accredited cash payment location. From there, you should get the funds within 2-3 business days. The new system is faster than the old one and this should be a big improvement.

We will also be having new owner portals on our website. It will now be easier to read statements and generate custom reports for certain time frames you are looking for. These will be coming out soon with completely new formats.

Recent Changes

Todd Ortscheid - Friday, March 09, 2018


In his first video blog ever, Todd Ortscheid of GTL Real Estate talks about the changes that have happened to the company over the past 9-12 months. This video is the first of a series that aims to update our clients and to improve the products we offer them.

First up, we are now known by a new name and that's because we now serve two markets--Atlanta and Florida. For those of you who have properties in Orlando and Daytona Beach in Florida, we can now just as easily help you as we help our clients in the entire Atlanta metro area. Our new name reflects our bigger market reach.

In addition, we have also made it easier for our tenants to reach us in case of emergencies, via our 24/7/365 repair hotline. Tenants have two options on how to submit repair issues they may have--they can either go online and fill out a form or they can call our main office line at any time by pressing a button and getting connected to the call center. In case of non-emergencies, the call center will dispatch someone for the next business day.

In line with repairs, we also have also switched to a new repair tracking software. The new software easily tracks all the necessary information, such as when was the repair scheduled, what date were the repairmen coming out to the property, or how old the work order is. It helps us stay on top of these repairs, to make sure they all get done. It also helps us follow up on the vendors who aren't doing their jobs so that we can find new vendors if they prove to be lacking.

In the past we've done only exterior inspections of the properties, but since owners didn't feel that they got the most out of it, we have decided to do scheduled interior inspections instead. We go into a property three months before the tenant's lease is up, to make sure that the property is in good condition. This helps us avoid legal liabilities in case the tenants decide to challenge us for something we charge them for. You also have the option to do inspections twice a year if you wish, just let us know so we can schedule it.

Lastly, we have switched to a new renting system called Rently. This helps us track the number of phone calls, emails and showings we get for your property. It also sends out an automated questionnaire for the tenants who've just seen your property and gets their feedback. This feedback is useful because this is how we determine how to sell or rent your properties faster. Rentals are going great in our markets, with our listings getting rented within two weeks. Tracking the trends with Rently helps us especially when things start to slow down.

We'll update you on all the new products we have in the works and things that we are going to be adding on to further improve the quality of service we provide. Thanks for watching!
