Residential Property Management in Charleston, SC

You're probably asking yourself, "That's great, but what exactly do you do for property owners?" The answer is we handle just about every aspect of your single or multi-family rental needs. Let's take a look at some of our most-requested services:

Apartment Building Maintenance Charleston, SC

In-Depth Rental Analysis

Obviously, the overarching goal of listing a home or apartment for rent is to drive R.O.I. Unfortunately, many landlords and property owners are inexperienced and make one of two choices: their rental rate is too high to get bookings or too low to make any profit. Whether you're losing thousands a year because your rental rate is too low or pricing yourself out of your local market, our in-depth rental analysis will shed light on your situation. That way, our team can pivot quickly and implement a new home or apartment rental strategy for your property.

In reality, most rental homeowners don't have the time or resources to assess the everchanging residential rental market. Our team uses MLS data, premium rental comparison resources, and years of local market knowledge to provide our clients with a well-sourced rental price recommendation. That recommendation helps J.H.W. achieve both short-term and long-term revenue goals. Contact our office today to learn more about how we analyze our client's properties before creating a rental campaign.

Rigorous Tenant Screening

Approving the wrong tenant can cost rental property owners thousands of dollars in damages and unpaid rent. At J.H.W. Enterprises, we perform extensive screenings on all your property's prospective tenants. Our far-reaching screening process couples minimum standards like age requirements and more in-depth screening like income verification and criminal checks. Perhaps most importantly, our team verifies your new tenant's rental history to ensure they paid rent on time, caused no damage in past rentals, were never evicted, and much more. Long-term rental property profits begin and end with tenants. As one of the most important aspects of residential property management, it's best to rely on experts like J.H.W. Enterprises.

Tenant Leases

If you're a property owner or investor responsible for single or multi-family home leasing in cityname, state, you need iron-clad leases that protect your best interests. Unfortunately, many single-asset property managers do a simple search online and re-purpose the first leasing template they find. On the other side of the coin, multi-asset property owners are often too busy or understaffed to implement proper tenant leases. J.H.W. Enterprises uses attorney-drafted and approved leases that are compliant with your state's tenant laws. These leases protect our clients and ensure their properties are well-cared for all year.

To reduce prospective and current tenants from shopping elsewhere, we can provide easy-to-use, efficient electronic signatures on renewals and new lease agreements. Our team also collects security deposits and ensures your rental homes or apartments are cleaned by professionals and inspected thoroughly before move-in day.

Of course, all of our clients receive detailed inspection reports, so they're always up-to-date on the condition of their investments.

But how do you know when it's time to go pro? In our experience, it's best to hire a property management company when:

You Own Many Home or Apartment Rentals

You Own Many Home or Apartment Rentals

The more multi-family home rentals you own and the more units they have, the more you're going to benefit from working with a team of residential property management professionals. J.H.W has years of experience managing multi-unit complexes. We've streamlined the multi-family maintenance process and use innovative technologies to enhance resident life while maximizing your profits.

You Have No Desire to Be an Employer

You Have No Desire to Be an Employer

If you hire a manager or other staff to book or maintain your property, congratulations: you're now an employer. With your new status, you've got payroll to handle as well as a host of other legal considerations and requirements. However, since a residential property management company isn't an employee of yours, and neither are the people who work for it, you avoid the headaches and hassles of being an employer.

You Don't Want to Manage Vendor Relationships

You Don't Want to Manage Vendor Relationships

Single home and multi-family property management companies like J.H.W. Enterprises have long-lasting relationships with quality maintenance companies, contractors, suppliers, and tradespeople. Simply put, independent landlords can't duplicate those relationships. But property management firms don't only source the highest-quality vendors - they get the best prices on those services too. Because of the vendor relationships we've built and nurtured, J.H.W. often saves asset owners money on maintenance and other service costs.

You Need Help Staying in Compliance with Laws

You Need Help Staying in Compliance with Laws

One of the many jobs a solo property manager must juggle is staying in compliance with local, state, and federal property laws. When you throw in curveballs like Fair Housing regulations, keeping your asset compliant with property laws is a task many owners won't manage. Fortunately, companies like J.H.W. specializing in residential property management can help you avoid fines and lawsuits by keeping your home or apartment rentals in full compliance with laws.

Some other common reasons why our clients choose J.H.W. Enterprises for property management include:

  • Setting and Adjusting Rental Rates
  • Finding and Vetting Tenants
  • Record Keeping and Accounting
  • Marketing Apartment Rentals and Home Rentals
  • Screening Inquiries and Showing Properties
  • Managing the Eviction Process

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - The UNCW men’s basketball team lost to No. 22 Charleston Wednesday, 71-69, at Trask Coliseum.

Charleston came into the game boasting the nation’s longest winning streak at 15 games, while UNCW’s streak stood at 13 straight victories.

The Cougars lead by 11 points at halftime, but the Seahawks mounted a comeback throughout the second half.

The Seahawks led by two points, 69-67, with 2:15 remaining in the game, but would fail to score again. Charleston capitalized on free throws and squeaked out a 71-69 victory to win its 16th consecutive game and remain undefeated in CAA play.

UNCW falls to 14-4 (4-1 in CAA play) while Charleston improves to 17-1 (5-0 in CAA play).

Trazarian White and Jamarii Thomas led the way for UNCW with 16 points apiece. Dalton Bolon led the scoring on the Cougars’ side with 16 points of his own.

Despite the losing effort, the hype surrounding this year’s UNCW team has made waves through the campus. The game was the second sellout at Trask Coliseum this season.

Students started lining up four and a half hours before Wednesday’s game, with some saying they have never seen so much excitement for a game before. Senior Caden Lang is the head of a student-fan organization and says he’s looking forward to what the rest of the season has in store.

“It’s awesome,” said Lang. “I mean, for us to go on this win streak is huge, to get national attention and to play a ranked team at Trask, it hasn’t been done since my freshman year and hasn’t really been a meaningful game since the 80s. So, it’s awesome to see history.”

As for the rest of the campus and community, Athletic Director Jimmy Bass says the team’s success has radiated through the school’s other programs. He says the excitement is something he expected when Coach Takayo Siddle was hired to take over the team. Not only has Siddle brought the hype, but his teams have also brought in the money.

“We exceeded our season ticket goal this year for men’s basketball,” said Bass. “We’ve already exceeded our individual game ticket goal, which means we’ve still got homecoming, we’ve still got Towson at the end of the year on senior night. So, we’ve got a chance to finish in the black, something we haven’t done in the past couple of years from a revenue standpoint.”

UNCW will be back at home on Saturday to host William and Mary. Tipoff is scheduled for 5 p.m.

Charleston Harbor Resort seeks to add hotel rooms and boat slips

MOUNT PLEASANT — The Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina is proposing to expand its marina and accommodations to keep pace with growing demand for vessels and visitors.

The 23-acre waterfront site at state-owned Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum wants to add 60 to 130 boat slips and up to 130 guest rooms.

The existing marina has 459 slips, but the operator of the resort said it needs more. The facility is running at about 97 percent occupancy from privately owned vessels and a for-profit boating club with about 50 watercraft.

“We need additional spaces.” said Oliver Rooskens, managing director of the resort.

Given the demand, he said, little room is left for transient boaters.

Rooskens called it a “lost opportunity.”

“In an ideal world we would have a slightly lower occupancy, so we have more space available for transient boaters,” he said. “At the moment we’re really limited in what we can offer transient boaters.”

The resort has submitted a permit request to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The application is still under review.

A separate proposal before Mount Pleasant Planning Commission seeks to amend the resort’s agreement with the Patriots Point Development Authority to allow for up to an additional 133 hotel rooms, bringing the total to about 350.

In addition to the town, the Patriots Point board, as the resort’s landlord, would need to approve the expansion plans.

Rooskens said he hopes to obtain the necessary permits this year.

He did not have a price estimate for either project, citing shipping delays and other issues. He noted that the resort just received dock materials that it ordered in 2019, the year before the pandemic wreaked havoc with the global supply chain.

“It all depends on when you place the order, and until you do, you don’t know how backed up the concrete and materials markets are or what the cost of construction looks like,” Rooskens said.

Patriots Points began leasing some of its valuable land to private developers more than 25 years ago to generate rental income to help maintain its fleet of historic warships.

The resort made its debut in mid-1997, with the completion of a 121-room hotel. The first phase of the marina was completed around the same time.

The current operator, which is part of a large insurance company, bought the leasing rights to the 26-acre property for $17.5 million in 2002. It added the 92-room Beach Club hotel about six years ago.

Mac Burdette, interim director of the state-owned visitors attraction, said the resort’s latest expansion plans are “exciting.”

“It’s a positive sign in this economy that one of our main hoteliers is looking to add additional rooms, because it means they see the market is strong enough to support that investment,” he said.

The separate $500 million, 15-year Patriots Annex project at Patriots Point will include hotels, a convention center, office space, an amphitheater, retail shops and 130 residential units on land that Charleston-based Bennett Hospitality is leasing near the Yorktown carrier.

Burdette, who plans to step down once a new full-time director can be hired, said Patriots Annex will be a pivotal project for the military attraction and the region. A groundbreaking event was held last year.

“This is probably the last few big developments on Charleston Harbor that we’ll ever see,” Burdette he said. “It’s a big deal.”

The Charleston Metropolitan area saw a 6.6% increase in job growth last year, which was the second highest rate in the nation, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

“It really goes to show that our region is thriving,” said Celeste Granger, vice president of Talent Development at the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce, told WCSC TV.

The chamber is currently piloting a federal grant to get marginalized communities into higher paying roles in the health care industry and is hoping to translate it to other industries, such as technical ones like heating, ventilation and air-conditioning.

“We were so used to saying, you know, for so long that there needed to be a four-year degree,” Granger said. “There doesn’t necessarily need to be that.”

The Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce said it projects nearly 36,000 new jobs by the end of 2026.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Hundreds attended the Charleston Museum’s 250th anniversary celebration to commemorate this historic milestone.

The Arthur Wilcox Auditorium at The Charleston Museum was filled Thursday evening as the institution celebrated 250 years of collection, preservation and education.

“We have over 2.4 million objects in our collection,” Carl Borick, director of The Charleston Museum, said. “It’s the largest collection of South Carolina materials known, even larger than the State Museum in Columbia.”

Borick says it’s incredible to commemorate this milestone, especially with everything the museum has endured over the last two and a half centuries.

“The museum went through the Revolutionary War,” he said, “we went through the Civil War, major earthquake, tropical storms, hurricanes.”

The keynote speaker for the event was the director for the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History Anthea Hartig.

“To commemorate any anniversary gets us thinking,” Hartig said. “It gets us thinking about our institution’s history, about our nation’s history and that The Charleston Museum is celebrating its semiquincentennial, which is a big word to say 250, is so thrilling for the museum community, and for all of us who care so deeply about history.”

During her address, Hartig touched on a range of topics including revolutionary questions with the aim of continuing crucial dialogue about freedoms in America.

“Who is created equal?” Hartig said. “How are our rights taken away? How are they extended? How have we fought for them over time?”

Many audience members were blown away by Hartig’s presentation.

“She was quite impressive,” Fred Taccolini said. “I mean, she’s been around doing this now for 33 years, and she has some ties to Charleston, which I wasn’t aware of and she’s quite familiar with us.”

The Charleston Museum says they will continue to uphold the mission that their founders laid out more than two hundred years ago.

“They set in motion two and a half centuries of collecting,” Borick said, “preserving and educating. And our expectation is that will continue for the next 250 years.”

A craft beer named “1773 Anniversary Ale” was specially made by Holy City Brewery for this occasion.
