Why do you hold real estate? It’s good to ask yourself this question at the beginning of our engagement. And be honest. Helping us to identify your motivations will help us to help you achieve your goals.

“Rent my House” Investor
The methodological approach to renting your primary residence.
Those with experience who require well developed processes and flawless execution.
All afterhours emergency calls are answered 24/7 by a Boomtown employee trained in the immediate mitigation of property loss. If necessary, emergency services are arranged to limit property loss, and our owners are provided a video if an emergency site visit is necessary.
How will I know that the tenants are taking care of the property?hljenn2021-07-07T15:52:58-04:00
Maintenance inspections are performed twice a year. Boomtown property owners are provided with an inspection report with time / date stamped pictures so you can feel confident in the condition of your property. During the turnover process you can stream the move-in / move-out video for additional detail.
What type of properties do you manage?hljenn2021-07-07T15:52:46-04:00
Yes. Our requirement for licensed and insured labor is only for occupied units. Boomtown only hires contractors that are licensed and insured; however, you are welcome to perform work on your own property and hire your own contractors without restrictions during the turnover process.
Can I use my own contractors?hljenn2021-07-07T15:51:56-04:00
This question is predicated on assumptions. A better question would be: “What matters to you as you consider a professional property manager?” Browse through our Services and Types of Owners sections. We are a property management company focused on adding value by innovating through technology to deliver better experiences at a lower cost. If that works for you, then our Rental Analysis is the next step.
What makes Boomtown different?hljenn2021-07-07T15:51:37-04:00
Low price AND great service. We use technology to drive down the cost of business and we pass the savings to you. We’re not a property management franchise. We’re not the largest property manager in Maryland (and we don’t want to be). We’re a small business with great processes and a professional staff working with like-minded property owners in Frederick and Montgomery counties.
Do run background and credit checks on tenants?hljenn2021-07-07T15:51:28-04:00
Yes, 100% of our tenants have been verified through background and credit checks. We also conduct employer and landlord verifications for all wage earners. Private landlords go through an additional step to verify ownership and validate the reference.
How would you market my property?hljenn2021-07-07T15:51:17-04:00
We used a paid marketing syndicate to advertise our properties on 41 different sites. When a prospective tenant shows interest our automated CRM software takes them through the process to schedule a showing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We regularly place new tenants in 48 – 72 hours using our proprietary system. Even phone calls at midnight on Saturday are processed immediately using our automation.
How much do you charge?hljenn2023-02-07T08:49:13-05:00
Our management fee is 6%/mo., we do not have any hidden fees. There are no start-up fees, or marketing fees and we do not add 10% to vendor invoices. Click here for details on our placement fee and lease renewal fee.
