We Advertise the Best Prices for Property Management in Birmingham AL
Started in April of 2014, Birmingham Home Leasing is one of the newer Property Management Companies in Birmingham AL. We do not have the number of units under management like our competitors, Alabama Rental Managers, GK Houses, AHI Properties and Rudulph Real Estate, therefore we have to be very aggressive in our pricing for property management services. We charge 50% of the first month’s rent for Leasing Service and only $50 per month for monthly Property Management. To the best of our knowledge, these are the lowest rates for Property Management in Birmingham AL advertised as of January 21, 2017.
Many of the Agents at Birmingham Home Leasing began their careers as Selling Agents with Coldwell Banker Green & Company in Hoover, AL in 2010. Because the Sales Market was soft and the demand for Single Family Detached Rentals was high, these Agents gained expertise in leasing expensive property to well-qualified Tenants. We lease and manage some of the most expensive Rental Properties in the Birmingham Metro Area.
We have the highest Tenant Screening Standards in the Metro Area. Because of this, we do not have to devote time to chase Tenants for rent payments. We have a Collection Rate of 100% and an Eviction Rate of 0%. This is how we are able to charge only $50 per month for Management Services.
Our New & Unique Approach to Residential Property Management in Birmingham AL
We do not approach Residential Property Management with the traditional assumption that rentals only exist for people who cannot qualify for a Mortgage. If you have a property that you cannot or will not sell for current market value, you now have the option to Lease to someone with excellent credit and income. In fact, the AVERAGE Tenant that we placed in 2015 had a FICO Credit Score of over 720 and documented income of over $228,000 per year.
Why Pay 10% per Month for Property Management in Birmingham AL When You Could Pay Just $50 per Month?
It is easy to pay too much for Property Management in Birmingham AL. Many rental management companies charge approximately 10% of the monthly rental rate for Property Management1. At Birmingham Home Leasing, we only charge a flat fee of $50 per month for the same services. Please check with each of our Competitors to get their actual quote.

The Best Way to Prevent & Deal with Problem Tenants
It takes an average of 4 months for a Landlord to evict a Tenant. Many times the Landlord cannot recover legal fees. Some Tenants become vindictive when they’re being evicted and damage the property above what the Security Deposit can fix.
If your Tenant had a bad Credit Score when you placed them, there’s no effective way to threaten them with a Judgment. If your Tenant has a high Credit Score, threatening a Judgment can be very effective. A Judgment on a Tenant’s Credit Report could easily prevent them from being able to rent again for 7 years.
Maintenance & Repair Service
Monthly Property Management is optional and many Landlords just use our Leasing Service.
We only order repair or maintenance service by express approval of the Owner after providing several quotes. In certain cases, we might order emergency services if we cannot contact the Owner, but this would never exceed $300 in cost. Authorizing us to order repair and maintenance services does not preclude the Owner from ordering repair and maintenance services. We are here to assist Property Owners with ordering repair and maintenance services to the degree that they feel comfortable.
When we do order maintenance and repair services for the Owner, we do not add a surcharge or additional fee of any kind.
Conditions Apply for Leasing & Property Management Services
We list single family detached dwellings with at least 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms in our published service area. The property also must appraise to rent for at least $1,100 per month in the “High Season”.
“Adding On” Property Management Service after an Owner or other Broker has already executed a Lease is prohibited. We reserve the right to screen Tenants that we will manage. This policy is also included on our Published Policies page.
