Did we tell you that we love Austin? CNN feels the same way. Life is good in Austin, TX!
Here's the link to the clip...
Austin on CNN


Theory #1: When the economy is in a recession consumers are willing to adjust their ethics to save a buck but corporations are under such scrutiny that they cannot afford to do the same. When we're experiencing an economic expansion however corporations feel the reins loosening and their ethics seems to be adjustable as consumers have disposable funds and don't seem as watchful. Resist the temptation to follow the crowd. The golden rule doesn't have any flexibility to it. Sooner or later everything comes back around. Treating others honestly is the right thing to do no matter the situation or the economics.

What is premise liability?
-It looks like another way to implement the golden rule....
The law says that owners and property managers will take ordinary care to reduce any unreasonable risk. This means that if we're aware something is a risk, it's our job to take care of it and reduce your liability. We commonly hear other property managers and owners asking, "Should we be taking care of this situation?" The answer is if an accident or injury is foreseeable then you need deal with the issue. Avoiding these details increases the odds that we'll both be in a lawsuit if an accident happens. Taking care of issues before they become problems is key. Don't let another company "forget" to take care of things on your property. Inspections that are included in our services target these types of issues.

1836 Property Management Pricing:
We've had a few customers lately that have been confused by other companies offering a lower monthly rate but charging higher initial costs, renewal costs, maintenance costs, etc. While our product is better and you'll receive a better overall value, we don't like getting beat for any reason even if it doesn't add up. We don't add miscellaneous monthly fees, phone charges, high renewal fees, and more like the other guys.
If someone says they can manage your property for $40 a month expect that after taxes and expenses, you'll get $0 worth of service. Each trip to a property cost about $40 minimum in time and gas alone. Don't be fooled by those promising more than they can deliver.
Some customers seemed to be getting confused, but trust us: we shop the competition and know what's out there. We're in business because we knew we could do better.
Our service, attention to detail and communication will always exceed the other companies. We want owners who want to maintain their properties for the future value, resale and marketability, including greater rental income.
If you want Nordstrom style service and a home that you can resale down the road for a gain, call us. If you want someone that just collects then rent, offers dollar general style service and lets your investment go downhill, there are plenty of others out there cutting deals with no bottom.
Remember this may be the biggest investments you have and a little neglect could cost much more down the road.

$50 TO CALL SOMEONE ELSE FOR MAINTENANCE?
We received another call last week about a company out there who led their sales pitch with low prices and great service. What the customer received was $50 charges just for picking up the phone every time work needed to be done. Now they have to evict the tenants on their own.

HOURS OF OPERATION:
Normal business hours are M-F 9-5 and Saturdays by confirmed appointment only. All calls regarding normal operations will be returned during those times.
If you are a tenant with a life threatening emergency call 911 immediately.
If you are inquiring about any of our real estate services or a tenant with an emergency please call 877-711-1836 and leave a message. We will return your call as soon as possible.
IF YOU ARE A TENANT NEEDING NORMAL MAINTENANCE PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR REQUEST IN WRITING AT WWW.1836PROPERTYMANAGEMENT.COM. Click on the REQUEST link.
