I have been calling property management companies for the past 3 days trying to get in touch with them about rental properties. None of them contacted me, and the one call center that I got in touch with was not able to answer my questions at all. Alexandria helped me through the entire process even helping me troubleshoot technical issues and was very sweet while doing it. Because of alexandria, I stopped looking on sites like Trulia and went straight to Mynd Property Management's site to look for other properties for rent. The tour process was easy once Alexandria and I figured out the technical issues, and I'm going to tour a couple of places today!

The young lady Alexandria was very very helpful and professional. She was patient when I was trying to get my documents together to load up. She was a true blessing for the first day of this new year. Thank you Alexandria and I hope and pray I can get this house to call home for my family.

I haven't been with Mynd for very long, but they have seemed to impress me thus far. We had an issue with our heat not working. I contacted Mynd through their app, and had a quick response from one of their representatives. That representative was Napoleon Fernández. He was fantastic! He got someone to come out as quickly as possible. That someone was Stephen from Comfort Services. Stephen fixed our heat and made sure everything was working properly before leaving. During all this, Napoleon stayed in contact making sure that the problem was being solved. I can't thank these two enough for their hard work to ensure that we were taken care of.

  • What questions should I ask a property manager?

    In addition to asking a property manager about their experience, you should ask them how they would behave in particular scenarios. 

    • How would they deal with a resident who is regularly late with rent? 

    • What would they do if they got a call at 3 a.m. that a pipe had burst? 

    • What gestures would they perform to increase resident retention? 

    A property manager has to be ready for anything, but they also need to know whom to go to when they need help.

  • How do you calculate cap rates?

    Calculating a property’s cap rates is the industry standard for estimating its potential rate of return, and is equivalent to the net operating income (NOI). It is an estimate of cash flow income and, if an acquisition was made in cash, it is the return on investment (ROI). If an investor financed their purchase, those monthly mortgage payments need to be factored in to calculate the ROI.

    The basic formula: Capitalization Rate = Net Operating Income / Current Market Value (Purchase Price)

    However, there are other costs to take into account when calculating a property’s true cap rate. These are steps to do that.

    1. Calculate the gross annual income. This is the rental payments, plus any other  income-producing business associated with a property. 

    2. Subtract 10 percent of the total annual rental income to account for a potential vacancy.

    3. Subtract ALL operating costs for the rental: management costs, taxes, utilities, insurance and any other expenses such as maintenance, to determine Net Operating Income (NOI).

    4. Next, divide the NOI by the acquisition cost for the property, including brokerage fee, closing costs, and all the renovation costs necessary to make it “rent ready.”  The result will be the cap rate, expressed as a percentage. 

    5. The cap rate will change in year two once the one-time closing costs are no longer factored. But annual maintenance will need to be factored in, which will average approximately 1.5 times the monthly rental rate, the so-called 5x rule. For instance, home renting for $1,200 a month will cost about $1,800 a year to maintain.

    6. The formula assumes that acquisitions are all cash and do not involve finance charges.  If a purchase is financed, those interest and principal payments need to be added to operating expenses. This will determine the return on investment (ROI).

    The relationships between rents, operating costs and acquisition costs are intertwined.  If a property costs more, it will need to fetch a higher rent to achieve a cap rate associated with cheaper properties in the same neighborhood.

    To calculate rental property returns and income taxesMynd offers a table that lets an investor plug in the numbers for a particular home and get results that can help them decide if an investment makes sense.

  • What is a cap rate in real estate?

    To compare the profitability of investment properties, whether they are single family homesmultifamily houses, large apartment buildings or luxury high-rise condos, real estate investors developed a formula. This formula is known as “cap rate” (officially it’s “capacity rate”), and it is arguably the most important  measurement of how much a property returns on its investment.
