Asset Managers Start-Up Program

ARCHER CROWN Residential Management understands that asset managers, investors and users of residential Central Florida real estate require more from their investment than simple bill pay. As previously mentioned, this is why our primary business for owners is value creation through increased income, decreased expenditures when prudent and maintaining the asset in the most optimum physical condition. Through the use and implementation of our Asset Manages Start-Up Program, our company is in a much better position to provide these services and to achieve the desired results.

  • Initial introduction and consultation session with professional licensed associate and completion and acceptance of detailed “OWNER INFORMATION PACKAGE”.
  • Detailed initial safety and maintenance inspection to determine overall condition of property and to establish repair items needed.
  • Commencement of initial maintenance and repair issues approved by asset manager and using qualified vendors that asset manager hires, prior to tenant occupancy.
  • Organizing, coordination and follow up of maintenance and repair issues with asset manager, tenant and qualified vendors.
  • Administrative set up and property placement in ARCHER CROWN Residential Management system.
  • Set up of direct deposit for owners rent disbursement.
  • Utilization of rental analysis to determine true market rents.
  • Establishment of individualized marketing and advertising plans with digital pictures.
  • Inventory of personal items (vacation home only and priced per residence).
  • Approved county/state business license complete with plastic holder (Osceola and Polk Counties only and only if license has expired). Priced at $100.00 additional.

While the Asset Managers Start-Up Program offers many valuable services, one of the most important is the detailed initial safety and maintenance inspection. This initial inspection sets a “Bench Mark’ to determine the overall condition of the property and to establish repair items that are needed. This inspection focuses on such diverse elements as:

  • Safety: Through suggestions on safety, our goal is to reduce liability exposure for our client’s.
  • Property Condition: Through suggestions on the overall condition of the property, our goal is to maintain the asset in the most optimum physical condition. Examples for Capital Improvements are carpets, appliances and air condition units. Examples for preventive maintenance and on-going maintenance would be caulking and drywall repair.
  • Visual Appeal: Through suggestions on visual appeal, cleanliness and comfort, our goal is to maximize rental value and resident placement. Once the initial safety and maintenance items have been determined, we will coordinates and oversee using a systematic approach, that all work is completed in a timely manner.

When we combine the Asset Manager’s Start-Up Program with the Annual Property Inspection, they now have another tool for valuable input, knowledge and guidance that is critical in making informed financial decisions for their investment.

Semi-Annual and Annual Property Inspection

Another key component to meet and /or exceed asset manager’s traditional goals for their investment property is through the use of our Annual Property Inspections. The Annual Property Inspection is designed to go beyond the normal preventative maintenance and on-going maintenance program. The inspector during this time will be looking at several critical areas and will be making recommendations accordingly.

These areas are:

  • Capital Improvements items such as carpets, appliances air conditions, etc.
  • Preventative Maintenance and On-Going Maintenance issues that were not previously notated. Examples of this are caulking, drywall repairs, carpet repairs etc.
  • Monitor lease compliance by tenants, such as pets, correct number of occupants per lease and general condition of residence.
  • Identify, notate and correct any safety issues that may be present.

Please note that photos and the Annual Property Inspection report will be available to asset managers.

Maintenance and Repairs

Over the course of almost three decades in Central Florida property management our owners have determined that most asset managers have three similar goals for their REO’s and as such we have assimilated these into our corporate strategy. These traditional investment goals are as follows:

  • To increase income.
  • To decrease expenditures when prudent.
  • To maintain the asset in the most optimum physical condition.

Our Maintenance Program, Preventive and On-Going Maintenance:

One key component to achieve our client’s goals is thru the use and implementation of a competent maintenance program, both preventative and on-going.

We believe in communication and that is why we want our owners to be fully aware of any and all maintenance requests that we receive from their tenant, no matter how much the cost or the type. Whenever we receive a maintenance request from a tenant, we will immediately have the necessary personnel contact the asset manager to explain what the request is and recommended course of action. This excludes repairs deemed by our company that constitutes an emergency repair.

When the Asset Managers Start-Up Program, Semi-Annual and Annual Property Inspection Program and the Preventive and On-Going Maintenance Program are combined, asset managers have an effective shield over their REO. To further enhance this, our maintenance program delivers added benefits. By providing a much truer and broader understanding of their REO, asset managers have another tool at their disposal for valuable input, knowledge and guidance, all critical elements in making informed and educated financial decisions accordingly.

Tenant Education and Expectations:

From this approach to preventative maintenance and on-going maintenance is derived an increased benefit and that is tenants learn quickly that our company and landlords expect that their residence will be maintained properly. This point is first introduced in our Resident Information Package and fostered throughout the tenancy. Please review this “Resident Information Package” for greater clarification.


When properties are vacant, it is very important that repairs are determined and then completed in a timely manner. This increases the property show ability, decreases vacancy time and thusly improves on our asset manager’s bottom line. Some examples of this are: maid service, lawn care, pool care, carpet cleaning and painting.

Aggressive Rent Collection

There is a saying “The Best Defense Is A Good Offence” and when it comes to rent collection, we are a firm believer in this. Through the application of our tenant screening process we are able to filter out much of the problem tenants prior to them becoming, a problem. Occasionally some of our residents have unforeseen financial hardships that may cause them to be late on their monthly rent payments. When this occurs, we immediately take action to determine what the issue is and to make arrangements to resolve it.

ARCHER CROWN Residential Management is acutely aware of the importance of aggressive rental collection policies. That is why every resident has been given a copy of these policies on at least two separate occasions. These policies are also available for review on our web site.

Abbreviated list of rental collection policies are:

  • Rent is due on the first of every month and late on the second.
  • On or about the 5th day of the month, one of our staff will attempt to make contact (a friendly reminder), via phone or e-mail with any resident that has not remitted rent by this date.
  • For the residents that have not remitted their rent payments on or about the 10th day of the month, we will initiate the required legal paperwork prior to filing the eviction.

Throughout the Owner Information Package, we have spoken of how important communication is and in rent collection, it is vital. Through the use of e-mail or phone, our staff will attempt to keep asset managers informed of any communication that we have had with their residents and to solicit a course of action.

Accounting and Rent Processing

ARCHER CROWN Residential Management will generate monthly computerized statements to asset managers displaying all rental income and disbursements.

ARCHER CROWN Residential Management will generate a year end summary statement primary for tax purposes. We require asset managers supply us with accurate information in order to prepare the 1099’s.

ARCHER CROWN Residential Management maintains all asset managers’ funds in separate non-interest bearing trust accounts that is mandated by the State of Florida. When rent payments from tenants are received and cleared, we will disburse available funds electronically, direct to asset managers bank account or by corporate check using the U.S. Postal Service. In order to protect asset managers, reduce vacancy time and to ensure quicker resident placement, we will hold adequate funds from the tenant’s last month rent payment in trust to ensure the residence is rent ready and available.
