Capital Improvement Oversight

Is it Time for an Update? We’ll Oversee any Size Renovation to Bolster Rental Income

In a tight real estate market like NYC, delivering the appropriate product to tenants is key to maximizing the return of your real estate investment. We oversee any project, no matter how big or small, to bring the apartment to market expectation. By maintaining strong relationships with contractors, we can save you a tremendous amount of money. We only use quality vendors who we closely supervise to ensure the job is done right and on budget. Since it is nearly impossible to manage a construction project from outside the local area, our project management team meticulously oversees the renovation process to make sure your money is not being wasted on unnecessary items. With an extensive background in renovations, we can help determine the best places to spend money to ensure every dollar is being used efficiently.

All receipts are attached for ultimate transparency and tracking purposes. Easily track your monthly statements on our website and access financial reports that can be shared with investors. This makes annual required tax filings simpler and cheaper, as the financial reporting is done for you.

We stay up to date all changes with NYC housing laws so we help you stay compliant with all regulations. “In house” legal counsel is available to assist you on any legal advice needed at a discounted price. In the event that a representative from the owner is needed in court, we can attend on your behalf and provide updates of all events.

Routine Property Inspections

Keeping Tabs on Your Property, so You Don’t Have to Worry About the Unknown

When your apartment or townhome is not occupied, our team makes routine inspections to ensure everything is in good condition.

Mortgage Escrow Reviews

Are Your Escrows Being Properly Calculated? Avoid Bank Overcharges
