DeSoto Property Management

Deciding to rent your home out to a tenant is not easy. Most landlords are either a member of the military who is facing deployment, a homeowner who cannot sell a house and is thinking about renting it out, or a real estate investor with lots of experience and an entire portfolio of properties. Whatever type of landlord you are, you need expertise to do it right.

Being a landlord is a full-time job. You have to be prepared to approach it that way. Here are some of the things required of you:

  • Pricing your home at a rent consistent with the market value and avoids long term vacancy
  • Marketing your property in the right places.
  • Compliance with all federal, state and housing laws in your advertising
  • Screening applicants who are serious about renting your home
  • Showing your property at times that are convenient for potential renters
  • Stay in contact with prospective tenants after they have viewed the property
  • Doing extensive background checks on applicants
  • Writing a lease that is legally enforceable
  • Collect and handle security deposits, placing them in escrow accounts
  • Inspect and document the condition of the property before move in
  • Understand and follow all landlord and tenant laws
  • Respond to tenant repair requests and maintenance issues 24/7
  • Schedule vendors for repair work
  • Making payments to vendors for completed work
  • Collecting monthly rent payments and chasing down late rent
  • Keeping an accounting system of rent, expenses and income
  • Handle problem tenants who cause damage or violate the lease or HOA requirements
  • Execute evictions when necessary
  • Regular inspections to ensure the tenant is taking care of your property and following the lease
  • Collecting back rent from former tenants
  • Completing a move out inspection
  • Return the security deposit to tenants within required number of days
  • Get your home ready during the vacancy for the next tenant
  • Start from the beginning with a new tenant

DeSoto Area Information

DeSoto Property Managers

The area was first settled in 1847, making it one of the oldest communities in North Texas. A post office was established in 1881, and the settlement was named DeSoto in honor of Thomas Hernando DeSoto Stewart, a doctor dedicated to the community.

By 1885, DeSoto was home to approximately 120 people, a cotton gin, and a general store. Soon after, the population declined to below 50. In 1930, there were 97 people living in the community and several businesses. Source from Wikipedia
