Let Us Manage Your Rental Property
Property management involves overseeing all aspects of a property including compliance, financial, marketing and general maintenance of a property. BCA Properties offers property management services tailored to meet your specific needs and objectives as a property investor or property owner. From “rental collection only” to “full service property management”.
If you have owned and managed any rental property for a while, you will know for a fact that rental property can be financially rewarding but will sometimes demand a good amount of your time and effort. This may kick you off pace with your core business or other activity. In some cases, a do-it-yourself (DIY) approach may not be a problem if you have the time and commitment needed.
In most cases however, a do-it-yourself approach is simply not practical and is not the best option for optimal rental income especially if you hope to grow your investment as a business. All the more reason to consider engaging a professional property manager for your rental property.
5 Signs You Might Need A Property Manager:
Do you often find yourself;
- Lacking sufficient know-how in most aspects of managing a property?
- Showing your vacant property to unqualified prospects or property “tourists”?
- Concerned about the amount of time you’re committing to managing, marketing and maintaining your property?
- Waiting for “No-Show” prospects at your vacant property for viewing appointments?
- Having your tenants call at the Worst Possible Times for issues you’d consider Petty?
*Are you living far away (abroad or in another town) from your rental property and you can’t personally oversee the property due to the distance?
If your answer to any the above is yes then it is time you considered hiring a property manager.

Listing your property is not always as simple as taking random pictures and posting onto social media or property portals for the masses. We write-up catchy descriptions and take pictures of your property aimed towards capturing specific target audience for your property. These may be professionally edited as an additional service for some properties where needed.
When your property falls vacant, we may promote it widely through several channels if needed. These include may include some or a combination of the following;
- featured listing on our website and mobile app,
- promotion on selected social media platforms (if applicable),
- listing on several partner property portals, and
- in some cases, we hold show days and might use some form of print media where practical.
We are pro-active in our marketing efforts and recommend best cost-efficient strategies to ensure maximum returns.
Potential tenants are vetted for standard checks to ensure we give you the very best tenant possible. Specific screening on request from property owners is also available upon consultations. Suitable prospects are then put forward for your selection before final closing.
Rental Terms Negotiations:
We also negotiate terms of tenancy if instructed to do so, thus ensuring the best terms mutually agreeable by both parties. We further provide our standard Rental Agreement (if required) which is edited on a case by case basis to suit terms agreed and each property.
Keeping your rental property in good condition is essential for ensuring and maintaining maximum return on your investment. Regular property inspections are important in achieving this goal. We have regular inspections and visits to your property at agreed schedules with tenants to make sure all is running well and tenants are happy.
Further, for furnished units more especially, it is important to have a starting comprehensive property inventory list prepared to ensure we have a reference point for use at the completion of the tenancy.
Lastly, on lease completion or termination, we ensure an inspection is carried out to check that the property is in satisfactory state and we check for any repairs above and beyond normal that may necessitate deductions from security deposits paid.
Property Maintenance, Repairs & Refurbishments:
We work with you in outlining any regular maintenance check list as you would like to be included as part of our management services. Anything above and beyond that may be needed is discussed with you beforehand and we offer our best advise on potential contractors or suppliers with whom we have established relationships with. Smaller repair works within an agreed amount will be taken care of without as part of management fees where applicable.
Further, as we keep up-to date with trends and constantly get feedback from tenants on what they want in a home, we offer advise where needed on potential refurbishments to ensure your property attracts the best tenants and continues to generate you a growing income.
