Downingtown Property Management
Del Val has developed our exclusive 4-Step LeaseUP! Program to get your property rented as quickly as possible including advertising on 100’s of websites, 3D videos, professional-quality photos and videos, extensive knowledge of keywords and how to get your property found on internet searches, and personally showing the property with our leasing agents.
Del Val will manage your property and tenants including collecting rent, paying bills and bookkeeping services, year-end tax and financial records, handling tenant calls and complaints, working through any tenant disputes, coordinating and performing maintenance, making sure you are in compliance with city rules and regulations, move-in and move-out inspections and much more.
Del Val does offer several different maintenance options including using our in-house maintenance staff in combination with outside vendors. In some cases, owners can perform their own maintenance or work with their own contractors. We also, in some cases, recommend purchasing a home warranty program to protect all your major appliances and systems. We can discuss which option best fits your needs.
Rent Collection Systems
Del Val uses aggressive rent collection strategies which include email reminders, certified letters, and phone calls, and, if no payments, ultimately we take tenant(s) to court. Tenants have two options – pay rent or are removed from the property!
Eviction Protection Program (Optional)
Del Val will pay all your eviction-related expenses including court fees, legal fees, and fees related to filing an eviction for just $15 per month per property ($25 per month per property in Downingtown). Del Val will absorb all the costs of Phase I (court and Judgment) and Phase II (possession). You pay nothing! Imagine that for just 33 cents per day.
The town was originally named Milltown due to its number of mills along the East Branch Brandywine Creek, the first of which was founded by Daniel Butter. The Butter family also had paper mills in the area, and Frederick Bicking from Winterburg, Germany, was the patriarch of the Bicking paper families. Around the time of the American Revolution, Milltown became more commonly known as Downingtown after the prominent businessman Thomas Downing, a Quaker immigrant in 1717 from Bradninch, Devon, England, who owned a number of those mills. The town was officially named Downingtown in 1812. The town is located along the Lincoln Highway (now part of U.S. Route 30) which runs from the East Coast to the West Coast. It was an early westward road in the wagon days as the Philadelphia and Lancaster Turnpike. The Lincoln Highway was the first paved road to cross the nation from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Construction of the Pennsylvania Turnpike started in the early 1940s and was completed in the early 1950s; it runs north of US 30, bypassing Downingtown. Source: Wikipedia
