With the motto “we protect your investment like it’s our own,” Avery Property Management offers the greater Boston community comprehensive property services, including maintenance, accounting, and tenant screening. Avery Property Management begins the process of filling tenancies by determining the current rental value of each unit it represents and listing properties in city newspapers, community publications, and with local real estate agencies. The full list of available properties, with available search parameters such as neighborhood, price, size, fees, and pet preferences, is accessible at the Avery Property Management website.
In addition, Avery Property Management allows prospective tenants to download rental applications, guarantor forms, and lease information documents. Once the company receives and processes relevant application materials, it undertakes credit checks on potential tenants and conducts interviews as part of its selection activities. Avery Property Management draws up lease and deposit documents, along with all relevant certificates and forms under Massachusetts law. Furthermore, the company maintains responsibility for setting up payment systems and collecting rent. Avery Property Management also oversees pre- and post-tenancy inspections, ensuring that every unit is in excellent condition for new tenants.
Avery Property Management maintains a 24-hour maintenance dispatch, facilitating the immediate handling of emergency issues. Owner requests for routine repair work may be expedited through an online request form. General plumbing and electrical repair work is performed by the company’s own experienced maintenance crew and billed at a competitive hourly rate. In maintenance situations requiring subcontractors, Avery Property Management hires, supervises, and oversees billing for services rendered.
