Each resident has a portal where they can pay using bank account information. Payments can be a scheduled autopay. Payments are recorded and can be seen by Arizona Living Rentals immediately. This method is free to the resident.
Alternatively, for a fee, residents can pay by cash at various retail locations such as Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, or Ace Cash Express. A customized cash pay slip is provided by Arizona Living Rentals to the resident via text, email or print.

What type of properties do you manage?
We management single family homes, multi family duplexes, triplexes, fourplexes as well as some small apartment communities.

Is Arizona Living Rentals the best option for every real estate investor?No. We are a relationship based property management business and we work with owner-clients who are looking for a full-service experience and believe in providing well maintained properties. We reject the idea of a landlord vs tenant mentality. Instead, we believe in creating a lasting impression for all residents and property owners.
Can I use a home warranty company?We strongly discourage the use of home warranty companies as they often provide a delayed, and less than exceptional experience and outcome.
Who takes care of maintenance?We will handle all repair requests (even after hours emergencies) and we use pre-screened, high quality vendors.
How updated does my property need to be in order to rent it?The quality of a property is equal to the quality of the tenant it will attract. Therefore you want your property to be updated and CLEAN! We can take care of getting your property fully rent-ready.
Do you provide a tenant placement guarantee?Yes, if we place a tenant and they break their lease during the first 12 months – we will release it for free.
What if the tenant does not pay rent?We handle the entire rent collection process. Although it is rare - should a tenant not pay rent, we handle the entire legal eviction process on your behalf.
Do you inspect my rental property?We perform an annual mid-lease property inspection. The purpose of this inspection is to ensure the property is being well cared for, there are no lease violations, and to look for potential deferred maintenance issues before they become a problem.
Do I have to accept pets?Excluding tenants because of a pet will cause your vacancy rate to be higher and may cause your rent to be lower. For this reason, we like to encourage owners to accept tenants with pets.
