Tenant Move Ins & Move Outs

When you move into a property managed by Springs Homes for Rent, it will have been fully cleaned, carpets professionally cleaned and re-keyed from the previous tenants. You will not be charged for this initial condition, but you will be required to return the property to us in this same condition at move-out. Costs for re-keying the property will be deducted from your Security Deposit at move-out and we are happy to give you an estimate of what this costs for your specific property. If you do not wish to fully clean the property or have the carpets professionally cleaned, we can arrange this for you and it will be deducted from your Security Deposit.
In Property Management, things do wear out and break over time and we realize that fact. If, during your tenancy, something breaks that falls under normal wear and tear, please let us know immediately so that we can get it fixed right away. In most cases, you will not be charged for this repair. If, on the other hand, something breaks that falls outside of normal wear and tear (i.e. a baseball breaking a window), please let us know right away and we can get you in touch with one of our vendors for the repair. In most cases, you will be charged for this type of repair. Your lease and accompanying documentation talk about what falls under normal wear and tear and what does not. If you ever have a question, feel free to ask us.

Tenant's Responsibility

  • Snow Removal
  • General lawn care and landscape maintenance
  • Maintenance or repair caused by willful actions or negligence (broken window, ink stain on carpet, damage by pets)
  • Pest Control
  • Maintenance of smoke detectors

Springs Homes for Rent's Responsibility

  • Scheduling the winterizing of the sprinkler system in the fall
  • Scheduling the de-winterizing the sprinkler system in the spring
  • Scheduling the annual furnace maintenance

Owner's Responsibility

  • Appliance repair due to normal wear and tear
  • Landscape repair cause by storms or disease (downed tree due to winds, dead trees due to disease)

These are just a few examples. Please refer to your signed lease for a full discussion of responsibilities of maintenance items.

Remember how nice and clean your property was when you moved in? That is the condition that we would like it to be in when you move-out. The move-in inspection report will provide us the baseline for the condition of the property. Was that gouge in the wall there when you moved in? It should be documented on the move-in inspection report, so there will be no questions when you move out.

Move Ins & Move Outs

When you place your home under Springs Homes for Rent, you can be assured that we will monitor the move-in and move-out of each tenant. The tenant will go through a move-in process which includes a detailed move-in inspection. The purpose of this inspection is to document the condition of the property in detail. Per the lease, the tenant is required to maintain the property to this documented condition and deliver the property back to us in the same condition as the previous move-out. Initial Move-Out - When you move out of your home the first time, we will request for it to be fully cleaned, carpets professionally cleaned and re-keyed. This is the same condition that tenants will be required to return the property to us in at move-out. Costs for re-keying the property will be deducted from your first owner payment and we are happy to give you an estimate of what this costs for your specific property. If you do not wish to fully clean the property or have the carpets professionally cleaned, we can arrange this for you and it will be deducted from your first owner payment. Maintenance During Tenancy - In Property Management, things do wear out and break over time and that is a fact that owners must accept. If, during a tenant's lease, something breaks that falls under normal wear and tear we will use our trusted vendors to get it fixed right away. For repairs greater than $250, we will request approval prior to dispatching a vendor. If, on the other hand something breaks that falls outside of normal wear and tear (i.e. a baseball breaking a window), we will work with the tenant to get it repaired at their expense.

Owner Communications

We want to have open lines of communication between our owners and our management company. Our online tenant and owner portals make it easy to keep in close communication with both our tenants and owners. If you ever have a question about a payment, a repair or when the next lease expires, simply start a conversation on the portal and someone will respond to your question right away. For payments and bills, all invoices and statements are posted on your owner portal so you can refer to them, download them or print them at any time. In addition, your end of the year statement and your 1099 will be posted on your portal for when you are ready to do your taxes.

Maintenance of Your Home

Keeping your home in good shape is a priority for Springs Homes for Rent. We encourage our tenants to report maintenance items as soon as they occur and our move-in and move-out inspections make it clear the condition of the home from one tenant to the next. We also help by taking care of some of the seasonal maintenance required. We will have your sprinkler system winterized in the fall and de-winterized in the spring. We also will schedule an annual furnace maintenance check in the fall. This will make sure your furnace is working properly and this preventative maintenance often eliminates those emergency calls in the middle of winter. All maintenance items less than $350 will be covered by your maintenance escrow and will be deducted from your monthly owner payment. If your home requires more extensive repairs, you can add money electronically to your escrow to cover this amount.

Should You Rent or Sell Your Home?

Have you been thinking about selling your home, but are not sure it is the right time to do so? This is the situation in which many people are finding themselves. With the less-than-stellar real estate market and the competitive loan market, there are plenty of people that make good tenants. Many of our tenants are financially responsible families or couples that do not feel it is the right time to invest in a home, but still want to live in a nice home. Leasing out your personal home may seem daunting at first. That is where hiring a property management company like Springs Homes for Rent comes in. Rent payments, maintenance requests, seasonal maintenance, tenant screenings and finding good tenants are just some of the things handled by us. We take the worries and stresses out of leasing your home so that the only time you think about it is when you receive your monthly owner's check. Now may be the right time to hold onto your home and let us manage it as a rental. Contact us for more information.

Owner Frequently Asked Questions

We have many years of experience in the Colorado Springs property management field. We aim to ensure that your property is kept in great condition at all times. Chances are that you have a home of your own that needs attention, so there is no reason for you to worry about the maintenance of both homes. You will be secure in the knowledge that your property is always rented out and we take care of any complaints for you.

Keeping an eye on your rental unit is a time-consuming task. You may wish to make better use of your time elsewhere. Instead of needing to search for available vendors, screen background of tenants, complete various maintenance tasks and dealing with potentially needy tenants all the time, you could be searching for more rental properties to add to your income.

We are up to date on all Colorado Tenant/Landlord Laws, and our property management team will be able to take care of the legal side of things for you if that need should arise.

For more information on our services and a free rental analysis, please feel free to call us. One of our experienced agents will be happy to provide you with any additional information you may need.

Once we agree to manage your rental, we will do a preliminary inspection and documentation of your property. This will serve as the baseline condition for all future tenants. We can schedule any necessary repairs needed, clean the carpets and re-key the property. Once tenants are occupying the property, we do both a spring and fall inspection which will include furnace maintenance, sprinkler winterization and de-winterization and periodic inspections during the summer for lawn and yard care and as well as any other time as needed You will maintain a balance in your account to cover maintenance repairs. We take care of scheduling and paying for the repairs and everything is electronically documented for you to review invoices online. All maintenance issues are handled by our company and we take on the burden of responding to the phone calls and emails of all interested parties. Our agents will personally take charge of any showings and will answer any questions from potential tenants. We also make sure to screen each applicant to ensure that there will not be any financial downfalls further down the line. Our job is to handle all of the paperwork so that everything is hassle-free for you. After a tenant moves out of your property, we handle the repairs and cleaning to get the property back into move-in condition. We do whatever we can to make sure that your property is well maintained and that your tenants are treating your property with care and respect. We take care of any necessary repairs as well as any legal issues that could potentially arise.
Springs Homes for Rent tries to keep our fees as low and reasonable as possible. Our management fees are 10% of rent per month plus an annual administrative fee of $50. Every time your property is re-leased, there is a leasing fee which helps cover the cost of move-in/move-out inspections, marketing, and screening tenants. Some of our properties have had the same tenants for over 7 years, in which case the re-leasing fee has never been applied. Your account will be funded with $350, which will serve as a portfolio minimum. Costs for normal repairs and services will simply be deducted from your rent proceeds, and you will be able to view all invoices and charges online through our property management software. Another benefit to using a Property Management Company is that it is often tax deductible. This means that you could earn a decent amount of cash back at the end of the tax season. After all, if your rental property forms a part of your income, our services are considered a business expense. Every year we provide you with the appropriate tax forms for submission.
If your property is empty, we do not charge a property management fee. Once your property is occupied again, the management fees will continue at 10% of the rent per month.
No, we typically do not handle apartment buildings or apartments in Colorado Springs. We handle townhomes, condos, single-family homes and lofts in the Colorado Springs area. We are not setup to handle Section 8 tenants.
Rent is due on the 1st of the month and late on the 5th. We need the rental payments to clear the bank before we pay owners, so owner payments are generally done between the 10th and the 15th of the month. If for some reason your payment will be delayed past the 15th, you will be contacted.
Most of our leases are 12 months, but a shorter or longer lease can be set by the property owner.
Yes, we use ACH for both tenant payments and owner payments. The owner payments are no cost to owners and go directly to the bank account that you set up.

Meet Springs Homes for Rent

Springs Homes for Rent is a full-service Colorado Springs Property Management company specializing in Colorado Springs Homes for Rent. Our website is very easy to use to search rentals, view rental rates, request a free rental analysis and learn about our services to make your property management experience hassle-free. In addition, both tenants and owners can log into their portal from our website to view payments, bills and online conversations with our staff.

Do you also know us as a Colorado Springs Real Estate Company? We began our property management company due to requests from our "For Sale" customers. We market and manage our client's rental properties with the same level of service and provide the same attention to detail as we do for our “For Sale” offerings.

One of the benefits of our experience as both a Real Estate company and a Property Management company is that when you are in a position to sell your home, our relationship and knowledge of your home and area already exists and it is easy to move your home from Property Management over to listing on the MLS. In addition, we have had several situations where the tenants became so enamored of the home, that they ended up buying the home instead of continuing the rental relationship.

We lease and manage residential properties for individual owners, investors and financial institutions.  We specialize in single-family homes, condos, townhomes, and lofts. We have leased and managed these types of properties all over Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak Region.  Put our experienced team of professional property managers to work for you!
