OUR PROPERTY MANAGEMENT SERVICES IN CARY, NC

Block & Associates Realty is the premier property management provider in the Triangle area, with a wide array of services to expertly and efficiently handle every aspect of the rental process, including:

RENTAL CONTRACT COMPLIANCE

Our agents handle all correspondence between tenants and owners with effective and efficient communications to resolve any issues that may arise. Our standard lease is crafted in accordance with North Carolina laws and meets the requirements set forth by your homeowners’ association. We will work directly with your HOA to ensure adherence to all rules and regulations and compliance with the neighborhood standards to avoid fines or penalties. At the end of the tenancy, we will conduct a comprehensive outgoing inspection to thoroughly assess your property for any damages, charge the tenant where appropriate, and arrange for any necessary repairs. Upon completion, we will refund the balance of the damage deposit along with itemizations for deductions as required by law.

MAINTENANCE SCHEDULING

Our property management experts will address any requests for maintenance and, if necessary, consult our extensive list of vendors who are carefully chosen based on strict criteria for quality, reliability, and cost-effective services. Prior to arranging for professional services, we will make every attempt to troubleshoot any issues with the tenant to help reduce costs by avoiding unnecessary service calls, and we never profit from any vendor charges.

ACCOUNTING

Owners receive a detailed monthly statement of income and expenses including copies of paid invoices, and we track any monies owing to your accounts such as past-due rents or late fees. Year-end statements assist with tax preparations and can help to maximize your deductions, and many items can be paid on your behalf without additional charges, such as warranty renewals or invoices for repairs.

RENT RECEIPTS

Our agents collect the rents due each month and track and distribute net payments via electronic deposit or check. Every effort is made to minimize late payment accommodations by tenants to maintain a reliable income flow to clients. In the event that eviction proceedings are required, we have a secured competitive rate with a trusted, local real estate attorney whose sole practice is dedicated to representing landlords. Every effort is made to collect any outstanding debts owed by the tenant, including the filing of a report to the credit bureau on your behalf.

ASSOCIATED COSTS

Our rates are in keeping with others in our area and we offer exceptional value for our services. We charge a competitive percentage of the monthly rental income, with an $80.00 monthly minimum rate for modest properties, and if the property should become vacant we will happily assume our management services for a flat fee of $80.00 per month. This fee includes the transfer of utilities into our name and the management of services such as lawn care, which will be billed to your maintenance fund, as well as monthly inspections to ensure the well-being and security of your property.

Since 1996, Block & Associates has worked tirelessly to earn and maintain our stellar reputation as the largest and most trusted property management team in the Triangle area. Contact us today to learn more!

History

Cary began life as a settlement called Bradford’s Ordinary, but credit is given to Frank Page for establishing Cary as a town when he and his wife Kate bought 300 acres surrounding the railroad junction in 1854. Page promptly named his development after Samuel Fenton Cary (a former Ohio congressman he admired), and became the railroad agent and the town’s developer. He laid out the first streets in Cary, building a sawmill, general store and post office, becoming Cary’s first official Postmaster.

By 1868, Page had built a hotel for railroad passengers, and in 1871 Cary was incorporated, with Page becoming the first mayor. With the advent of the Raleigh and August Air-Line Railroad coming from the southwest in 1879, Cary’s growth continued. Although it grew quickly, in the early years Cary adopted ordinances to control growth and give the town structure and that tradition has continued.

In 1971 Cary’s government created a PUD (Planned Unit Development) to accommodate the growth created by the nearby Research Triangle Park. With the use of PUD’s, developers can plan out entire communities and ‘see’ the area before it actually exists, making it possible to use land to its best advantage. Thanks to their foresight, Cary is a beautifully maintained, well functioning city with over 160,000 people who live here and love their Cary!
