Owning a rental property is exciting yet demanding. There are numerous moving pieces to effectively handle, whether its finding a quality tenant, coordinating repairs and maintenance or performing inspections - all while staying compliant with South Carolina Landlord Tenant law. These can be overwhelming, even for seasoned investors of rental property.
That's where we come in. Uptown Property Management - Greenville has the resources and experience to manage your rental property seamlessly. Our services are designed to give you peace of mind and a worry free experience. While your an active participant with your rental property, always knowing what happens and involved in big decisions, we handle the day to day management, emergencies and communication so you can reap the benefits of your investment, not the stresses.
Getting to know you and your property is key to establishing a good, solid foundation for managing your property. As a result, whether your property is vacant or occupied by a tenant, we'll start by completing a thorough walk through to determine its condition, take appropriate notes and obtain photographs. If occupied by a tenant, we want to establish a productive, working relationship with them. This way, if ever there are repairs, issues or concerns that need to be handled, they are open and honest with us.
If your property is vacant, our walk through will enable us to provide you with a comprehensive report on its condition. It has been proven that a property in good repair and move in ready will rent quicker, obtain a premium rental rate and attract a quality tenant. If your property requires some upkeep or maintenance, we can assist. We have compiled a preferred group of insured vendors who can paint, clean, carpet shampoo and more. If your home requires a little more, such as carpet replacement, remodeling or significant landscape work, we can also coordinate those items for you using qualified vendors. We will obtain estimates on your behalf and subsequently oversee the work.
Our ultimate goal is to lease your home to the best qualified tenant and have a successful long term tenancy.
Effective marketing of your property is key to finding a qualified tenant quickly and minimizing vacancy periods. Uptown Property Management invests in high visibility marketing - advertising sites that have been proven time after time to attract quality prospect inquiries resulting in quality tenants. Additionally, while many rental listings lack key features designed to attract potential tenants, such as property descriptions or even photographs, we make it a point that your property stands out among the crowd. Our marketing services include:
We are confident that our marketing approach and strategy will work for you. That is why Uptown Property Management offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If we can't lease your home to a qualified tenant during the marketing period, you may cancel your agreement with no obligation or fees. We stand behind our service.
We want to succeed with your property. Getting in front of as many prospective tenants is key to finding the best one out there.
A great tenant can never be underrated - someone who understands the need for paying rent on time and upkeeping your property. That is why tenant screening is one of the most critical aspects in managing a rental property. It can reveal past evictions, unpaid rent or a bad tenancy – things you will want to avoid when leasing your property.
As a result, Uptown Property Management has partnered with Rentspree, a nationwide premier tenant screening service to obtain detailed reports and background checks. We reduce your risk by thoroughly screening every tenant prospect, ensuring they meet our high standard. We go in-depth, contacting prior landlords and verifying income to determine whether a prospect qualifies to lease your property.
Our comprehensive tenant screening process includes:
Applications are processed online for tenants and are at no additional cost to you - even if multiple prospects apply for your home. As an active participant and decision maker for your property, we review every applicant with you, providing you with our recommendation based on our years of experience. Rest easy knowing we are working in your interest.
Maintenance repairs can be a worrisome issue for most rental property owners. Finding qualified and reasonably priced vendors can be a challenge on its own. Let our Greenville property management team help guide you through this. We find quality, insured vendors to handle routine and emergency repairs, both during and after hours. We also work with home warranties and insurance providers to resolve any property issues. In order to proactively and efficiently resolve maintenance issues, when a repair request is made by the tenant, we follow the following 5 step procedure:
While South Carolina law states that major components of the home are to be maintained by the homeowner, we require tenants to maintain certain aspects of the home. These include items that fail as a result of tenant neglect or damage. Additionally, we require that tenants professionally shampoo carpets annually and maintain adequate renter's insurance.
At Uptown Property Management, we believe in proper property oversight. Regular checks of your property are key to making sure your investment is being taken care off. While many property management companies do not inspect the homes they manage, we believe it is an essential part of identifying necessary maintenance and interacting with the tenant to ensure they are upkeeping the home.
We perform inspections:
Your property will be professionally documented with photographs and detailed notes - all part of our property management services. And we'll furnish you with a complete inspection.
At Uptown Property Management, we make bookkeeping easy and hassle free. Access to all documents, including monthly statements are included and available to you in real time, 24/7 via your online web portal. You can also rest easy knowing that rent payments are processed quickly and on-time to you, consistently each month.

One of the foremost concerns any rental property owner has is the possibility of legal action and evictions. In the unlikely event of non payment of rent or non compliance with the lease, know that we will guide you through the process. This includes:
