The Benefits Of Working With RENU Property Management In Atlanta
Market Analysis: We analyze comparable homes in the current Atlanta market to ensure accurate rental pricing.
Property Condition: We walk the property to become familiar with condition and amenities. We make recommendations for the best implementation of improvements.
Online Marketing: We create a detailed Atlanta property listing and distribute it online across a large network of rental websites to capture the largest audience possible.
Additional Marketing: We recognize that sometimes a different approach is beneficial for maximum exposure in a particular market. We will create traditional printed flyers or MLS listings for homes where the market calls for them. (An additional fee will apply for MLS advertising.)
On-site Information: Our “for rent” signs and supplemental pamphlets on-site direct prospective tenants to apply online 24/7 or to contact our office by phone, text, or online with any questions. Inquiries receive an immediate auto-reply and an additional personal response as soon as possible thereafter.
A reliable and long-term renter is worth their weight in gold. RENU focuses on renting your Atlanta investment property to stable tenants who will take care of the property and pay the rent on time. In order to do this, all RENU Property Management Atlanta tenants must pass a comprehensive screening process. Our screening process in Atlanta results in fewer late payments and longer tenant retention. We adhere to Fair Housing practices and will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. We WILL deny an applicant the basis of creditworthiness, monthly income, and/or rental history. Upon receipt of an application you can trust that we will:
Review the applicant’s ID: We look for matching name, date of birth, and address.
Run a credit report: We look for qualifying credit, no open bankruptcies, and for red flags such as unpaid utilities, debt to a previous landlord, or large collection balances.
Conduct a criminal background check: We review public records for any criminal history.
Check public records: We search for any past evictions or landlord-tenant disputes.
Verify employment: We obtain verification of current, local employment.
Verify monthly income: We review current paystubs for proof of qualifying income.
Verify landlord references: We ask for three years of rental history and contact previous landlords to inquire about payment history, length of tenancy, proper notice given, lease violations, rent amount, damages, and any other noteworthy concerns.
Setting fair prices for rental units requires an understanding of current market trends in Atlanta. In addition to our knowledge of the Atlanta area, we run a market analysis along with our review of the property to maximize your income in the shortest amount of time with the best tenants. Responding to tenant leads in real time allows us to obtain useful feedback and provide you with weekly updates on lead activity and responses. From there, we use our experience to adjust the listing or conditions at the property as necessary. Once an applicant is screened and approved, we execute an attorney-reviewed lease, collect and hold a tenant security deposit, and inspect the property. Our Atlanta move-in inspection includes detailed photos of the property so that we can hold the tenant responsible for any changes in condition beyond normal wear and tear.
Lease Agreement: RENU Property Management in Atlanta has a customized, attorney-approved lease agreement to govern the landlord-tenant relationship. The lease includes rules for creating a safe, peaceful living environment that protects the landlord’s and tenants’ rights as well as the welfare of the property.
Move-in Packets: New tenants in Atlanta receive additional guidelines for care and use of a house, any HOA governing documents, and information about local utility companies.
Move-in Inspections: Each Atlanta move-in is preceded by a thorough inspection. The interior/exterior inspection includes photos of each room and fixture and includes notes on condition or existing damages. This allows RENU Property Management to hold tenants accountable for any tenant-caused damage to the property at move-out.
Rent Collection: Our lease outlines a clear rent due date, late fee schedule, and eviction process for when tenants fall behind so that there are no surprises.
Property Care: The lease agreement also stipulates what the tenant is responsible for maintaining themselves so that those items are not neglected.
RENU Property Management in Atlanta is equipped to handle any maintenance needs, any time. Regardless of why maintenance is needed, RENU will dispatch our trusted Atlanta area contractors, coordinate with the tenants for property access, and handle invoicing on your behalf.

Emergency servicing systems ensure urgent matters are handled expediently, mitigating as much damage as possible. Routine property inspections enable RENU to identify issues before they worsen.

We coordinate tenant requests, property access, obtaining estimates, and paying contractors on your behalf to make maintenance of any nature a smooth process. Continual maintenance keeps your Atlanta property in top condition. Happy renters and fewer repairs increase your revenue.
Standard Maintenance: Each RENU Property Management Atlanta tenant has a unique online Tenant Portal login where they can request maintenance. They provide contact information for scheduling, photos of the problem (optional), and an explanation for what the problem is.
Emergency Maintenance: We provide tenants with a 24/7 Maintenance Hotline to reach us whenever something goes wrong at their Atlanta property. We screen requests, assess the nature of the request, dispatch emergencies immediately, and work to mitigate damages, keep repair costs low, and keep tenants happy. This system mitigates damages, keeps tenants happy, and reduces expenses.
Preventative Maintenance: Regular property inspections allow us to identify concerns before they become problems. We watch for interior and exterior needs, record and share any tenant-reported concerns, and monitor tenant care of the property.
Turnover Maintenance: Our thorough move-out inspection not only allows us to charge tenants for any damages, but it is also an opportunity for us to identify any capital investments which would increase the value of your Atlanta property for the next lease.

Evictions & Collections
We do our best to protect your interests and place tenants who will fulfill their lease. Sometimes tenants still default on their lease agreement due to unforeseen circumstances. RENU Property Management in Atlanta has the experience to navigate through complex situations while mitigating risk and complying with the law. We coordinate with our eviction and/or collection attorneys to move through the appropriate legal processes and recoup your funds as quickly as possible.

If a tenant moves out leaving damages behind, we have a collection process in place to hold them accountable thanks to our thorough move-in inspections.
RENU works with Investors to acquire and stabilize single family homes in multiple areas across the United States. We are the Industry Leaders in underwriting process and acquisition technology. The following RENU methods have helped investors successfully acquire over $2.9B in U.S. Residential Assets since 2009:
Proprietary Analytics Software
RENU Analytics is a software platform that takes direct data feeds from Multiple Listing Services, Tax Records, and Public Data. With this software we are able to accurately and efficiently underwrite over 20 Million Homes per day. Real-Time data combined with historical data is applied to a proprietary algorithm to surface the best assets for a specific investor every 60 seconds. Asset level expenses are used to capture exact yield potential in each market.
Corporate Underwriting Team
RENU’s Corporate Underwriting Team consists of 20 analysts that use the data generated from our analytics software to further analyze each property. Our Team performs benchmarking and underwriting analyses to provide opinions of value on real estate before we make a purchase. Analyses include reviewing municipal and HOA laws, construction budgets, embedded equity, home price appreciation models, and gross & net yields from cash flows. Once the property has been analyzed by the Corporate Team, it is sent to the local teams to validate.
Local Operations Team
Our local operations teams manage final underwriting, offer writing, contract negotiation, and transaction management. Underwriting integrity is preserved and locked into RENU Analytics. These teams are also able to provide significant off-market asset sale leads. The feedback we obtain from the local team rounds out the perfect real-time approach.
Construction Management – Rehab Management
RENU is able to make the rehab and construction process efficient through the use of technology and leveraging our local relationships. Rehab oversight is performed at the job site while further oversight and accountability measures are performed at the Corporate office.
Corporate Process Management
Operations, Treasury, and Acquisition responsibilities are all managed at the Corporate office. The technology we implement provides transparency throughout all stages of the process.
Atlanta Area Information
Atlanta is the capital, most populous, and primate city of the U.S. state of Georgia. With an estimated 2019 population of 506,811, it is also the 37th most populous city in the United States. The city serves as the cultural and economic center of the Atlanta metropolitan area, home to more than 6 million people and the ninth-largest metropolitan area in the nation. Atlanta is the seat of Fulton County, the most populous county in Georgia. Portions of the city extend eastward into neighboring DeKalb County. The city is situated among the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and has one of the highest elevations among major cities east of the Mississippi River.
The city’s name derives from that of the Western and Atlantic Railroad’s local depot, signifying the town’s growing reputation as a transportation hub. During the modern era, Atlanta has attained international prominence as a major air transportation hub, with Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport being the world’s busiest airport by passenger traffic since 1998.
It ranks in the top twenty among world cities and 10th in the nation with a gross domestic product (GDP) of $385 billion. Atlanta’s economy is considered diverse, with dominant sectors that include aerospace, transportation, logistics, professional and business services, media operations, medical services, and information technology. Atlanta has topographic features that include rolling hills and dense tree coverage, earning it the nickname of “the city in a forest.” Revitalization of Atlanta’s neighborhoods, initially spurred by the 1996 Summer Olympics, has intensified in the 21st century, altering the city’s demographics, politics, aesthetics, and culture.
During the 2000s, Atlanta underwent a profound physical, cultural, and demographic transformation. As some of the black middle and upper classes also began to move to the suburbs, a booming economy drew numerous new migrants from other areas of the country, who contributed to changes in the city’s demographics. Much of the city’s demographic change during the decade was driven by young, college-educated professionals: from 2000 to 2009, the three-mile radius surrounding Downtown Atlanta gained 9,722 residents aged 25 to 34 and holding at least a four-year degree, an increase of 61%. This was similar to the tendency in other cities for young, college educated, single or married couples to live in downtown areas.
Atlanta is one of few United States cities with permanent, professional, and resident companies in all major performing arts disciplines: opera (Atlanta Opera), ballet (Atlanta Ballet), orchestral music (Atlanta Symphony Orchestra), and theater (the Alliance Theatre). Atlanta attracts many touring Broadway acts, concerts, shows, and exhibitions catering to a variety of interests. Atlanta’s performing arts district is concentrated in Midtown Atlanta at the Woodruff Arts Center, which is home to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and the Alliance Theatre.
Atlanta has more festivals than any city in the southeastern United States.
As of 2010, Atlanta is the seventh-most visited city in the United States, with over 35 million visitors per year. Although the most popular attraction among visitors to Atlanta is the Georgia Aquarium, the world’s largest indoor aquarium, Atlanta’s tourism industry is mostly driven by the city’s history museums and outdoor attractions. Atlanta contains a notable number of historical museums and sites, including the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, which includes the preserved childhood home of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., as well as his final resting place.
Sports are an important part of the culture of Atlanta. The city is home to professional franchises for four major team sports: the Atlanta Braves of Major League Baseball, the Atlanta Hawks of the National Basketball Association, the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League, and Atlanta United FC of Major League Soccer. In addition, many of the city’s universities participate in collegiate sports. The city also regularly hosts international, professional, and collegiate sporting events.
