Who runs Summit?

If you are interested in renting out your home, don't do it alone! Believe us, it takes a lot of resources to manage a property. Please contact us for exact details. Our fees include a placement fee of 50% of your first months rent. This covers administrative and marketing costs. Additionally, to manage your property month-to-month, we request a management fee of 7% of your monthly rent. This ensures someone is able to answer the phone basically 24/7 in case of emergency, and ensures tenants are following the lease agreement.

How much does this service cost?

We require renters insurance of all tenants. This small cost to them protects their belongings, and helps keep you the property owner safe. Tenants must adhere to their lease agreement at all times, violations of the lease agreement could constitute lease termination. Tenants must report changes in employment and must report all pets. Failure could result in lease termination.

What do you require of a tenant who rents my home?

We collect rent, manage maintenance requests, screen potential tenants, and handle all of the daily paperwork so you can relax. We will also keep tabs on the property, and perform quarterly inspections of the property inside and out. Based on our property reports, we can make recommendations for necessary repairs and facilitate that using our licensed contractors.

What does Summit do for me?

Summit will be handling the process from start to finish so you don't have to! But, we start by screening applicants using the following criteria: TransUnion® TrueCredit® Score, Criminal Intellisearch Background Check and National Eviction Registry check. We also use information such as previous references and income information to find the right tenant.
