Property Owners We Serve

The Rent my House Investor:

Professional advice for those who might rent their own home.


You’re thinking about renting your property, but you’re not sure. Everyone you talk to says renting your property is a good way to “diversify”, but what does that mean? What about the downsides? What happens if a tenant doesn’t pay? Does that happen often? Is my property good enough to rent? Will I be able to cover my mortgage? There are many good reasons to invest in real estate long-term and many good reasons to divest (sell). At Boomtown we treat property owners as long-term partners and ALWAYS offer impartial advice.


It’s about dollars and cents, and intestinal fortitude!
Allow us to guide you through the process of making your property ready.

Buy / Sell Analysis

What’s most important to you? What are your goals? We’re experts in helping you develop “go” / “no-go” criteria to break down complex financial decisions. Intestinal fortitude isn’t really a requirement, but we do place importance on setting realistic expectations.


Investment Property Transition

Should I refinance now or after a tenant is in place? Are my HOA fees tax deductible? What’s depreciation and why do my real estate investor friends love it so much? Should I move my property into an LLC? What kind of insurance do I need? Do I need more insurance? Should I change my locks? What kind of paint do you recommend? Transitioning your property has impacts on everything from taxes and insurance to mortgage loans and locksets. We’ve developed best practices to advise on all these questions and others you’ve probably not even thought of yet. How do you shutoff water in an emergency? How to do you shutoff water to your fire suppression system in an emergency? How do you shutoff water to your outside spigots? Do you have frost-free spigots? Does it matter? How do you reset a circuit breaker? How do you reset a GFCI circuit? How do you know when you’ve tripped a GFCI circuit? Do you have HVAC dampers in your home? How do you use them? Where are they? What are the model numbers for your appliances? Why does it matter? How do you reset a garbage disposer? And finally, how do you instruct your tenant on all these things? (and more) You can rely on Boomtown as your guide.


2x Inspections Each Year (w/pics)

That’s right, twice a year! No extra cost, no hidden fees – two inspections a year. This property is your baby. You probably still text your old neighbors. This house was your home and now you want to make sure it’s cared for – we gotcha covered. Twice a year we perform maintenance inspections on each of our homes and provide each owner with a copy of the report and pictures.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are emergency calls handled afterhours?2021-07-07T15:53:07-04:00

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?2021-07-07T15:52:58-04:00

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?2021-07-07T15:52:46-04:00

We manage residential property in Frederick and Montgomery counties.

How quickly do I receive the rent income?2021-07-07T15:52:34-04:00

Owner distributions are processed on the 15th of each month and funds are generally available within 48 hours. All owner distributions are direct deposited.

How long is a typical turnover?2021-07-07T15:52:22-04:00

1-2 weeks. We generally need about 1-2 weeks after a move-out to inspect the property, and make it move-in ready for a new tenant.

Who takes care of turnover work?2021-07-07T15:52:14-04:00

We do! The placement fee includes the work Boomtown does to scope and administrate any work done at your property. Contractors perform the work, Boomtown administrates the work.

Can I do my own turnover work?2021-07-07T15:52:05-04:00

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?2021-07-07T15:51:56-04:00

Yes. We are happy to oblige any request for preferred contractors as long as they are licensed and insured.

Why should I sign with Boomtown?2021-07-07T15:51:48-04:00

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?2021-07-07T15:51:37-04:00

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?2021-07-07T15:51:28-04:00

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?2021-07-07T15:51:17-04:00

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?2023-02-07T08:49:13-05:00

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.
