Step 1

We’ll evaluate the value of your property and the surrounding area to determine a competitive monthly rental rate which maximizes your investment. Since Arlington doesn’t have rent control, we’ll take particular care to ensure that your monthly rental price is in line with current market conditions.

Step 2

We’ll prepare your property for listing on the rental market. We take care of it all: market-ready inspections, sourcing competitive turnover quotes for repairs and capital improvements, reviewing any existing warranties, insurance and service agreements, the utility structure, and more so that we can have everything lined up for a successful listing and move-in.

Step 3

We'll then professionally photograph the property and create stunning virtual tours, market it across multiple channels, and conduct tours for prospective tenants. We'll complete thorough background checks on potential tenants and even draft and execute the lease. While waiting to find the perfect tenant to live in your space, we will not charge you a fee while the home remains vacant.

Step 4

Once your new tenant has moved in, we’ll handle all ongoing property maintenance and take care of emergencies 24/7, fill work orders, conduct preventative maintenance, and more. Because Arlington laws require that you give at least 24 hours notice before you enter a property, we’ll also handle scheduling those maintenance appointments.

What homeowners in Arlington, Virginia are saying:

I’ve been trying to find a property management company I could trust for years and I finally stumbled across Nomadic. Jenna made sure that all the photos of my property were professional and that the floorplan looked great. Plus, she helped set up a virtual tour! Since then, I’ve had no worries about maintaining and managing the home I rent out. I can’t recommend these guys enough!

Understanding the Ledger

Your portal includes a ledger with all transactions. The ledger is populated with data in real-time as transactions flow through our accounting software. Much of this information is also available in the Reports area, as well as the Statements in your Documents library, but the ledger is the most comprehensive resource for diving into the details. 

Please scroll through the sections below to get a better understanding of how to interpret the ledger. 

By default, transactions are sorted chronologically:

Owner Ledger Dates
  • The date reflected in the lefthand column is the actual transaction date, not the “bill date”. This is the date the transaction was actually processed. 

If you have multiple properties with Nomadic, you'll see the address for each transaction in the "Location" column:

Ledger Property Column
  • You can filter the ledger to look at just one property, all properties, or specific sets of properties. 
  • If you only have one property with us, you’ll just see the ledger for that property. 

The Description column displays the transaction type:

Owner Ledger Description Column
  • BILL: this is an expense transaction, such as for repair costs or management fees.
  • CHARGE: this is a transaction  billed to the tenant, most typically a rent payment. 
  • NACHA EXPORT: this is a credit we processed to your distribution account. This type of transaction is how you get paid! 

The Amount column shows the dollar value of each transaction:

Owner Ledger Amount Column
  • Positive Amounts: if an amount is positive, it reflects a transaction that is payable to you. Typically, this will be a rent payment that we collected from your tenants. On occasion, a positive number could also signify a journal entry or credit adjustment. 
  • Negative Amounts:  if an amount is negative, this is a transaction that is either payable to Nomadic or is an amount that has already been paid to you. Typically this will be for repair costs or management/leasing fees. Owner draws (net distributions into your checking/savings account) also reflect as negative amounts, since they have already been paid to you. 

The Account Balance column shows a sum of positive/negative transactions at a given point in time:

Owner Ledger Account Balance Column
  • Account Balance should always equal zero after a net distribution has been processed. When the balance is zero, this means that all expenses have been paid and you’ve received the remainder as net operating income, leaving a balance of zero (meaning: no one is due any money, as all funds have been distributed appropriately). 

Navigating the Propertyware Owner Portal

How do net distributions work?

Net distributions keep your accounting clean and simple. Each month we’ll collect rent from the tenants, deduct any repair expenses for the previous month and any management/leasing fees for the current month, and credit the remaining net operating income to your account. 

Net Distribution

You’ll receive a statement via email each time a net distribution is processed, and can view all transaction details in your Propertyware owner portal.
