  • Frequently Asked Questions about PropertyFirms
  • What is PropertyFirms?
    • PropertyFirms is a real estate rating company that provides services to clients who don’t need (or want) an agent. The main services provided by PropertyFirms are listing property sellers, buyers and renters worldwide. Agents do not provide any of these services; they simply facilitate communication between buyers and sellers/renters.

      Broker services typically include: advertising property for sale or rent, arranging showings of that property, collecting offers on properties for buyers or sellers, drafting offers and counteroffers on properties for buyers or sellers, coordinating inspections on properties before purchase, negotiating repairs with owners after purchase (if applicable), answering questions from people looking to buy or rent homes in your area.

      PropertyFirms connects people with trusted professionals in their area. All contracts are performed by vetted, pre-screened professionals who know what they’re doing and love what they do. If you’re looking for an apartment cleaning service, movers, a professional organizer, or another similar service, PropertyFirms will help you find them in your city.

      A team of highly trained customer support specialists are on hand to assist customers with their needs 24/7. The name PropertyFirms refers to their commitment to making sure brokers don’t interfere with any transactions between clients and professionals – they want brokers out of commission!

  • What’s the difference between full service and boutique service?
    • The main difference between full service and boutique service is in the services they provide. While full-service agencies will handle the sale, the tenant's rental application and all negotiations involved, boutique agencies offer a limited range of services to give clients a personalized but less hands-on approach. In addition to property sales, they'll typically also focus on lettings.

  • What if I don’t have all the paperwork for my condo?
    • While it’s true you don’t need all the paperwork, you do need most of it. You should have:

      • A completed application with your signature and all the information we asked for (and none of the information we didn’t);
      • Two recent pay stubs;
      • Proof of employment and bank account statements;
      • Copies of credit reports if you have one;
      • Your photo ID.

      If you don’t have some or all of these things, that’s OK—call us so we can help! Remember: We want to make sure your condo sale goes as smoothly as possible.

  • What if I don’t have a great picture of my condo?
    • You don’t have to have a professional photo of your condo (or a great one for that matter). We can help you take advantage of our professional photographer at an affordable rate. All you need is your condo key and we will shoot a great looking picture, show you how it looks and send it to you for approval before uploading. If something isn’t quite right with our photography, we are happy to fix it until you are 100% satisfied.

Landlords and property managers can use PropertyFirms to save time and money by streamlining their current processes while providing a competitive edge in today’s marketplace. The only difference is that instead of setting up an account on our system, you’ll sign a lease agreement directly with your tenant for services to be paid upfront each month just like rent. This works especially well if you manage several properties because it lets tenants pay one bill for all services, helping to reduce confusion and increase efficiency—on both sides of your building(s).

    • The email verification process is automatic and can take from a few minutes, depending on what time of day you sign up. If you're having trouble with email verification, it might be a result of spam filters. Check your spam folder for our emails and whitelist us if necessary.

  • Any recommendations for property owners while listing a property?
    • It’s important for you as a property owner to have all your documents together before making an appointment with one of our agents. This will allow us to give you an accurate estimate on when your property can be listed and how much it might cost. Our preferred method of communication is via phone or email, so please have these details ready. If you prefer to meet in person, that’s okay too! We also recommend downloading and reviewing our Pre-Listing Checklist ( here ) which has all of the documentation we require to prepare your home for listing. Even if there are multiple owners involved, we suggest each one meet with us individually so that everyone can ask their own questions and so no one feels left out.

  • Why do I need to wait for the account to be validated to see owner details?

This process can take up to 14 days, but usually much less than that. We do not show any private data from your account to potential property owners until it has been approved and is validated by our verification team.
