Introducing Real Property Management’s Wealth Optimizer Service
Managing a rental property and managing a property investment is different. Managing a property involves transactional activities such as marketing vacancies, screening tenants, collecting rent, and handling tenant activities.
Managing a property investment involves these activities but adds deeper financial analysis to the process.
The Difference Between Property Management and Investment Management
- Marketing vacancies
- Screening tenants
- Lease signing
- Rent collection
- Handling tenant issues
- Maintenance & repairs
- Investment management seeks to maximize short and long-term property value
- Maximize operating income which defines your future property valuation
- Track property value appreciation over time
- Plan for capital investments (e.g., roofing, hot water heaters)
- Incorporates tax impacts of depreciation, interest payments, and other deductibles
- Minimize tenant turnover and unnecessary expenses
- Track growth in property equity
- Investment management brings a holistic view to managing properties to optimize your wealth
Goal Alignment Between You and Your Property Manager
Our Wealth Optimizer service generates a plan that helps you and your Real Property Management office achieve your investment objectives. By focusing on short and long-term value for your property investment, we understand your goals and can act accordingly.
We help you understand the key variables that will affect your revenue and expenses, now, and in the future. With proper planning, you can anticipate and smooth out the costs associated with vacancies and capital improvements, and keep track of your investment’s appreciation over time.
- Better investment performance
- Clear and understandable data and information
- Better revenue and expense management
The Wealth Optimizer Process
- We start with a comprehensive analysis of your property or properties’ revenue, expenses, equity changes, tax deductions, vacancy/occupancy rate, balance sheet, and reserves.
- Using our proprietary Wealth Optimizer tool, we produce a complete and understandable report.
- We meet with you personally to review the initial analysis, and set goals for the next year, five years, and beyond.
- We can discuss different assumptions to evaluate the impact on your investment.
- On a monthly basis, we provide you a report including cash flow, rent roll, occupation/vacancy rate, balance sheet, variance report, and reserve status.
- During the 4th Quarter of each year, we will jointly update assumptions and you will receive a projected year-end report.
- At the beginning of each new year, we meet in person to review a new comprehensive analysis and proforma statement and establish goals for the coming year.
Our Wealth Optimizer Service Tracks and Evaluates Financial Factors Important to Investors
Not only do we analyze all the factors that influence your property’s financial situation, but we also compile the information into useful reports for you. This allows us to understand revenue and expense variances so action can be taken to improve performance.
