Born Out Of Necessity
After being unsatisfied with multiple 3rd party property management groups for our 45-door portfolio, we made the decision to hire a team in-house and self manage our homes.
We spoke with numerous owners of single-family rentals and they all shared the same frustration. The existing management options in the marketplace did not provide great service so it was either do it themselves, which they didn’t want to do, or be ok with mediocre service at best.
We are passionate about providing great service and saw a problem that needed a solution. We are excited to announce the launch of Common Ground Management to provide all owners of SFR a better option.
Let’s start a conversation!
Why CG Management?
Providing world class service is important. It matters when it comes to renewals and rent growth. As important, both the Landlord and Manager’s reputation in the marketplace is critical to protect.
Leveraging our in-house maintenance resources allows us to perform minor tasks at a fraction of the cost that it would be to hire out. We pass on these advantages to our clients.
The more homes you own, the more efficient everything becomes. The price of software, materials and services become less per home when you have scale. Even if you don’t have 100 homes, being a part of our portfolio allows you to take advantage of our scale.
We view management through a lens of ownership as we own 45 properties (and growing) ourselves. We understand the importance of sound financial reporting, pushing rent growth, maximizing NOI, and achieving renewals.
The ability to keep costs low is greatly affected by the types of vendors and the length of time of relationships. We are given preferential treatment and pricing due to the large amount of time that we have invested over the years nurturing relationships with the best vendors.

REAL REVIEWS FROM REAL TENANTS
Tenant reviews are an essential aspect of the rental process as they provide valuable insight into the quality of a rental property and the landlord. They serve as a crucial tool in creating transparency and accountability within the rental industry.
