Rents are due on the 1st of the month and Washington State law gives our tenants a 5 day grace period. We pay our owner-clients their rental income either by direct deposit or mailing a paper check no later than the 10th of each month.
Most of our tenants pay rent with our direct debit process, which is free, automatic, and extremely convenient. Some tenants opt to pay rent with a paper check, money order, cashier’s check, or bill pay check through their bank. Tenants paying with paper methods can either mail or drop off the rent to our office in Sequim. 99.9% of our tenants pay rent on time and in full each month. When a tenant does pay late they usually let us know in advance, and it is typically caused by a pay period issue with their job. In the very rare occurrence that a tenant has gone beyond the grace period and has not communicated with us, we immediately provide them with a late rent notice and charge the appropriate late fees along with the normal rent amount.

Explore What We Do As Your Sequim Full Service Property Manager
This service is for property owners and investors that need a comprehensive, professional property management solution.
We conduct a rental price analysis for each property we manage to maximize your return on investment. We then market your property locally and nation-wide to attract a large pool of prospective tenants.
We qualify tenants with a thorough background check including credit, criminal, rental history, employment and income verification. We also qualify pets, service and support animals to validate service and support animal status, vaccination records and other important details for all prospective tenants with pets and animals.
We make sure you get paid on time, every time. Our tenants can choose from several convenient rent payment methods. Once rents are processed, we pay you your monthly rental income by direct deposit no later than the 10th of each month.
We maintain your property using our large network of trusted, licensed and insured vendors. Your tenants can report maintenance issues 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We ask your permission before taking care of any items exceeding $500 (unless it is an emergency).
With our financial reporting tools, it's never been easier to keep tabs on your investment. Log into your owner portal to view statements and stay in tune with how your investment is performing. We provide monthly statements with detailed, easy to understand accounting, and an End of Year summary and 1099 for tax reporting.
We enforce the lease agreement to make sure your tenants are abiding by its terms, and coordinate legal action for rent collection or eviction, if necessary. In the unlikely event that a tenant needs to be evicted from your rental, we will shield you from the stress and re-rent the property promptly.

We will serve as your eyes and ears when you are away from your property. Often, homes that are empty for weeks or months at a time are more susceptible to break-ins or theft. Or a small problem that goes unnoticed and uncorrected can become a big expensive surprise when you arrive weeks or months later. You will enjoy the peace of mind that your property is being carefully looked after. Your property will be visited weekly, bi-weekly, or different frequencies of your choice. Each time we visit your property we do the following:
- Inside- check all windows and doors to ensure they are closed and locked and there is no evidence of forced entry, check for evidence of roof leaks, odors, evidence of insect or animal infestation, plumbing leaks, adjust light timers, check and adjust thermostat, or any other special request.
- Outside- check for fallen trees or branches, damage to roof shingles, gutters, downspouts, check your mailbox for mail or packages and retain or forward per your instructions, check landscaping for appearance and maintenance.
The fee for our property monitoring service starts at $100 per month for weekly visits.
