University City 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 University City). 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.
University City is the easternmost part of West Philadelphia, situated directly across the Schuylkill River from Center City. The University of Pennsylvania has long been the dominant institution in the area and was instrumental in coining the name "University City" as part of a 1950s urban-renewal and gentrification effort. Today, Drexel University and the University of the Sciences also call University City home. The eastern side of University City is home to the Penn and Drexel campuses, several medical institutions, independent centers of scientific research, 30th Street Station, and the Cira Centre. The western side contains Victorian and early 20th-century housing stock and is primarily residential. The area is ethnically and economically diverse, although the compositions of its 12 census tracts vary widely; for example, the population in the mid-2000s of the easternmost tract was about half white and one-third Asian, while that of the northwesternmost tract was almost entirely black.
