MidTownSA.com is a professional real estate services company with nearly 200 residential doors under management, and generations of management experience in San Antonio’s MidTown rental market. We staff a professional crew of maintenance technicians. Hiring us to manage your property ensures fewer phone calls and fewer headaches, as well as more advertising exposure and more quality tenants.

For owner-operators who want to continue to manage their own properties, we do offer tenant-location services at fees higher than what our Property Management clients pay. This is a customizable service, but is offered as a turnkey solution featuring our premium lease-marketing package. The Lease-Marketing Package includes unit photography, marketing, MLS listing, tenant background check processing, and (if desired) lease writing and signature management.  The fee with the property, but can be as low as half of one month’s rent. You will find the ease of working with us is well worth the cost. Our hope is you begin to imagine letting us to take over full-time management, or at least having us list the property for sale whenever the time comes. If you need help finding a tenant, please call us to start the conversation of how we can become your go-to Realty Firm.

We offer a tiered management commission structures ranging from 7.75% – 13% of gross rents, optional advertising upgrade fees, cost-plus labor, special services (like evictions), and run background checks on every tenant over 17 years of age at no additional cost to you.  In fact, we offer our full-time management clients a no-charge “Good Tenant Guarantee,” and will never put a tenant into your building we would not want to live in our own homes.

When selecting a management company, consider that most tenants move around within a narrow geographic area. This is especially true of tenants being forced out by their current landlords. As a result, many inner-city landlords simply end up trading bad tenants.  When you have off-site or non-professional managers, there’s an increased chance you’ll be a bad tenant’s next victim.  Our on-site / near-site management puts us head-and-shoulders above other management companies in terms of our ability to protect the long-term life expectancy of your building and helps to make sure the neighborhood’s problem tenants don’t fly in under the radar to make you their next victim.

We do things differently. We approach our management vocationally rather than occupationally.  We live in the neighborhoods we manage. We see and interact with our tenants in the grocery store, at restaurants, and at our children’s school functions. This makes us uniquely able to consistently find quality, long-term tenants to keep your properties producing and protected.

As licensed and knowledgeable real estate professionals, we are also able to assist you in the purchase / sale of both investment properties and private residences. Our goals are to improve your bottom line and reduce your property’s likelihood of limiting your lifestyle. In other words, we work hard to ensure you have the money and the time to pursue your life’s passions [rather than your tenants, your managers, and your vendors]. As an added perk, our system has built-in rewards for management clients who use us to buy and sell their properties.

Management Fees
