Toronto, ON (PRWEB) May 22, 2014
FirstService Residential in Ontario has announced the launch of FirstService Rental Management, a new division created to provide full-service rental management services to individual owners seeking to lease their residential investment properties. These tailored services, available throughout a property’s life cycle, target owners and investors who may lack the experience or time to effectively manage their unit(s) in the regulated Ontario market.
“As the industry leader, FirstService Residential has forged strong relationships with developers, many of whom are actively adding residential units in new high-rise condominiums, as well as in our existing managed condominium corporations. We believe that by building on these relationships, we can provide a service offering that fills an unmet need in the market,” said Tasso Eracles, Chairman, FirstService Residential Ontario.
“FirstService Rental Management’s services, such as initial leasing, tenant screening, financial performance and ongoing tenant management, are designed to enhance the value of owned properties and meet the needs of developers and board members who currently have an unprecedented proportion of renters in their condominium properties,” he added.
The new division’s parent company, FirstService Residential, manages over 275 Condominium Corporations representing 38,000 condominium units throughout the Toronto Metropolitan area and Ontario. Its mission is to enhance property values and residents’ lifestyles on behalf of the owners, developers, and condominium associations it serves.
