1. Tenant screening

vPMAs can assist with collecting and reviewing tenant applications, conducting comprehensive background and credit checks, and verifying employment and income sources. They can also contact previous landlords for reference checks, ensuring the selection of reliable and responsible tenants who are less likely to cause problems or miss rent payments.

Additionally, they can help resolve any rent-related disputes or issues.

3. Tenant move-in and move-out coordination

vPMAs can manage the entire tenant move-in and move-out process, from coordinating with cleaning and maintenance crews to preparing the property for new tenants. They can create and review move-in/move-out checklists, conduct thorough walk-through inspections, document the property’s condition, handle security deposit returns, and update property records, all while ensuring a seamless transition for both property managers and tenants.

4. Property listings and marketing

vPMAs can create and manage property listings across multiple platforms, ensuring that the descriptions are engaging and accurate. They can coordinate professional photography or virtual tours, develop eye-catching marketing materials, and utilize social media and other marketing channels to attract potential tenants and minimize vacancy periods.

6. Maintenance coordination

vPMAs can schedule and track routine maintenance tasks, such as HVAC servicing, landscaping, and pest control. They can also coordinate repairs and improvements, communicating with vendors and contractors to obtain quotes, schedule work, and ensure timely completion of tasks. VAs can provide updates to property managers and tenants, ensuring clear communication throughout the process.

7. Customer service and communication

vPMAs can serve as a central point of contact for tenants, addressing their concerns, answering questions, and managing maintenance requests. They can ensure prompt and professional communication, helping to maintain positive tenant relationships and reduce turnover.

8. Property inspections

They can work with inspectors to ensure compliance with local regulations, coordinate any necessary repairs, and address potential issues to maintain property value and tenant satisfaction.

9. Market research and analysis

vPMAs can gather and analyze data on local rental rates, vacancy rates, and market trends, providing property managers with valuable insights for making informed decisions about rental pricing, marketing strategies, and property investments. They can also monitor competitor listings and track changes in the local real estate market.
