Meridian Property Marketing

Our Meridian property management business attracts qualified tenants by advertising on all the most popular national and local websites. Data collected indicates that ads strategically placed on national tenant solicitation websites is the most successful form of media advertising.

Professional signage is a valuable marketing tool and is placed on investment property to advertise vacancies and attract tenants.

Our Meridian property management team has established professional networks with major employers and government agencies. We work closely with these professionals to assist them with housing needs for their clients and employees.

Our Meridian property management team maintains an internet website,, which advertises current and upcoming vacancies. Our Meridian property management firm also advertises on all the most popular national websites that expose vacant properties to tenants outside the Meridian rental market. Websites, in general, have become very powerful tools for presenting vacant properties to potential tenants. Our website is viewed regularly by several relocation companies and large employers in the Treasure Valley.

We maintain regular office hours, Monday – Friday 9am to 5pm. We have a secure system for afterhours drop off and pick up.

Our fully automated showing system, available 24/7 using email and text communication, guides prospective tenants through the process of home matching, preliminary qualifying, viewing the property, and encouraging feedback regarding the property. Approximately 80% of the people who we work with use our site to do advance screening of properties.

Data collected indicates a significant decrease in vacancies when utilizing this system.


Cash Flow Accounting and Financial Reporting

The proper management of the Owner’s Meridian property necessitates the comprehensive financial reporting of all transactions and rent collection. All Owner funds flow through a special rental trust account maintained by our residential property managers.

On the 25th of the month (the following Monday if it is a holiday or weekend) our property management company closes accounting.  On the 27th of the month (the following Monday if it is a holiday or weekend) Owners receive their rental income by ACH automatic deposit to their bank account and can view their owner statements online through the Owner Portal at our website. Copies of vendor invoices are also provided in pdf form on the Owner portal.  Other reports are available at the landlords request. 

Our property management company will pay from property funds all normal operating expenses; such as utility charges, maintenance expenses, HOA dues, advertising, and management fees. Accurate receipts of all expenses are kept in the RMA office.

Realty Management Associates will pay from investment funds all normal operating expenses; such as utility charges, maintenance expenses, advertising, and management fees. As an Owner’s option, our property management firm will pay expenses, such as mortgage payments, taxes, and other assessments. Accurate receipts of all expenses are kept in the office.

1099 reporting is filed with the IRS on all taxable income collected on behalf of the Owner. All vendors receiving compensation from the property account will receive 1099 statements.


Maintenance Supervision

Protecting the value of the investment is a common goal shared by both RMA and the Owner. One of the primary goals of our property managers is to obtain quality professional maintenance services at competitive prices, to maintain the Meridian property in a clean and habitable condition.

RMA uses a work-order system to schedule and supervise all property maintenance. RMA’s efficient staff handles all required and preventative maintenance, using the most reliable workmen and tradesmen in the community.

Realty Management Associates responds to all emergency property maintenance requests in a timely manner. Non-emergency maintenance requests are processed to the satisfaction of the Owner and Tenant.

The Owner will be notified of maintenance requests performed, as per the terms of the Management Agreement.


Screening Prospective Tenants

Industry data show that a significant percentage of all applicants will not qualify as potential tenants.  Realty Management Associates knows it is much better to have a vacant property than a problem tenant! Performing a tenant screening is one of the most important Meridian property management services provided by RMA. A complete and thorough tenant screening and background check of all potential tenants help to ensure that illegal activities do not take place on rental properties managed by Realty Management Associates. With this service, you can rest easy knowing the lease agreement with be respected and monthly rental payments will be consistent.

Each potential Tenant must have a credit report completed before being considered for tenancy. The tenant must complete an Application for Residency, which permits Realty Management Associates to run a credit report. A national credit reporting service provides the applicant’s credit history quickly and accurately. The potential tenant is responsible for the application fee.

Tenants are required to produce verification of employment by submitting W-2 statements, pay stubs, and/or tax returns. Our property management company requires the most recent two-month bank statements, to verify legitimate lifestyle and normal cash flow.

Past landlord experiences for the preceding two years are verified by a Realty Management Associates staff member. If a prospect has been a homeowner, mortgage payment history and a real estate broker are excellent references. When possible, an onsite inspection of the Tenant’s current residence is also conducted.

After the successful completion of the application process and tenancy approved by Realty Management Associates, a lease/ rental agreement is executed with the Tenant on behalf of the Owner. Our property management team will administer the terms and conditions of said lease/rental agreement.


Property Inspections

Each rental property is thoroughly inspected during vacant periods, and the condition of the investment property is well documented with photographs and extensive notes. These property inspections are necessary when holding the tenant accountable, and also insure that maintenance issues are easily identified and completed.

Routine drive-by inspections are conducted periodically by your property manager to identify any potential issues. When obvious violations of the rental agreement are identified, a complete walk-through inspection is scheduled. The frequency of exterior property inspections increases during the summer months and during vacant periods.

It is the policy of our Meridian property management firm to make an introduction to several neighbors; this facilitates a mini neighborhood watch. The neighbors appreciate our concern for the investment property and are eager to report any apparent issues. Our vendor staff is another valuable source of Meridian rental property inspection. These individuals are instructed to report any known rental violations or potential problems immediately to RMA.

Meridian, ID Area Information

Meridian rental property maintenance and tenant screening service for landlords

The town of Meridian was established in 1891 on the Onweiler farm north of the present site and was called Hunter. Two years later an I.O.O.F. lodge was organized and called itself Meridian because it was located on the Boise Meridian and the town was renamed. The Settlers’ Irrigation Ditch, 1892, changed the arid region into a productive farming community which was incorporated in 1902.

Meridian was incorporated in 1903. The information in the following sections (Irrigation, Village, Rail Transportation, and Creamery) is found on the displays in the Meridian City Hall Plaza. Source From Wikipedia
