No Long Term Property Management Contracts
Property management companies in Fayetteville, North Carolina frequently use long term contracts for their services. Let’s face it, long term contracts serve no useful purpose other than to lock you into a service, which may or may not meet your expectations. In fact, long term property management contracts violate the basics of good property management. At Linchpin, we firmly believe that the relationship is established between you and our company by virtue of the service we provide to you. Rather than lock you into a long term exclusive management contract, we stand firmly behind the value added approach of knowing that we will continuously work hard for you, and protect your asset, by way of our due diligence. Quality service will always beat out a contractual obligation.
Locked Into A Property Management Nightmare
How many horror stories have you heard of people being locked into contracts where the relationship has deteriorated, and were unable to get out prior to the expiration of the terms? Gym memberships, cellular phone services, and cable providers, just to name a few. Despite the lack of quality service, the customer is forced to use the provider until they can run away as fast as they can. This nightmare repeats itself on a daily basis across Fayetteville, North Carolina with landlords and rental management companies.
Performance Forms The Relationship
Our agreement with you is performance based. We lay out clearly what you can expect from us as a property management company, as well as set out our expectations of you as an owner. If we aren’t living up to your expectations as a property management company, we will make our best effort to cure any defects. If we are unable to resolve your dissatisfaction, unlike a lengthy divorce, we will amicably part ways. We won’t, however, leave you out to dry. We’ll help you find a better fit in the Fayetteville area, or provide you with resources to assist in the management of your own property.
Flat Fee Property Management Pricing Structure
We Put More Money In Your Piggy Bank. In Fayetteville and the surrounding area, property management companies typically charge you 8-10 percent of your rental income to manage your property. At Linchpin Property Management, we realized this creates a big inequity with landlords. What this means is that if your property rents for $1500 a month, you are charged $150 dollars a month for rental management fees based upon a 10 percent fee structure. If another landlord’s property rents for $800 a month, they are charged $80 a month for rental management in Fayetteville. The kicker is, both landlords are receiving the same rental management services. Our flat fee treats all landlords equally, and Clickity Clank. . . Clickity Clank. . . More Money In Your Piggy Bank!
Equality in Property Management Pricing Structure
Why are you paying more than the next landlord? This is a question you must ask yourself, because a percentage based pricing structure does just that. You may be paying more for the EXACT SAME SERVICE than another property owner in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Think about it like this. If you go a restaurant and order a burger, the same burger as the next table, and you are charged more, wouldn’t you ask the manager why? At Linchpin, we realize that all properties aren’t created equally, but all Landlords are treated equally!
More Cash Flow In Your Pocket
In the example we spoke of above, you end up paying $840 more a year if your property rents for $1500 a month, and another landlord rents their property for $800 a month. That’s $840 you could be using to pay down the principal on your mortgage, saving your thousands in the long run. Or you could have invested the difference each month in an investment that compounds interest. At any rate, that money would be free for you to use however you decide. At Linchpin, we charge a flat rate for property management services, putting that money back into your piggy bank.
Where Is Your Money Going
Property management companies in Fayetteville often taken on a lot of unnecessary overhead to operate. This is even more true when the property management company is part of a larger real estate company. What this means is that the fees you pay each month are used to supplement the revenue of other departments. Like it or not, your fees are more than likely being used to pay for a big office space which doesn’t add value to your investment; salaries, utilities, equipment, staff support, marketing and advertisement, and other liabilities are paid out of your property management fees, and you are not receiving value an appreciable impact. At Linchpin, we believe in a lean approach, without sacrificing service. We only manage properties, so you know 100 percent of your fees is going to property management.

Property Management Preventive Checks And Maintenance
Frequent property inspections are one of the surefire ways to ensure your property is being protected.

No other property management company in Fayetteville provides the level of attention to detail we provide. Waiting for the move out inspection to take into account damages, is neglectful property management at best.
Frequent Property Inspections
The horror stories of property management companies only conducting property inspections during the move in and move out inspections are all over the internet. The result of the property management company’s neglect is the property owner being left with a security deposit which doesn’t cover tenant damages (thus having to come out of pocket); a decreased home valuation; and the inability to quickly turn around the now vacant property to another tenant (and potentially losing a qualified and verified tenant).

Lowest Property Manager to Property Ratio
An Asset Not A Commodity
It is common practice among property management companies in Fayetteville, North Carolina to commoditize your asset, and see your property under their management as nothing more than an opportunity for revenue. At Linchpin Property Management, we believe that in order to effectively manage your property, there must be a low ratio of property managers in respect to their individual property management portfolios.

Your property management asset is more than a number.
More Effective Communication
Our low property manager to property ratio allows our property managers to communicate with you in a timely and frequent manner. Experience has taught us that near constant communication with our property owners, results in better outcomes for all interested parties. Property management companies with higher ratios simply can’t match our dedication to you as an owner, and the trust you place in us to manage your asset.
