Foreign Service Officer Property Management. Streamlined.

Foreign service officers often have to pick up and relocate with minimal warning. Those who own property in the D.C. area could find themselves in a challenging situation when this occurs, because there won’t be time to sell or rent the home before leaving. 

The team at Nomadic Real Estate offers exceptional foreign service officer property management assistance. We have more than 15 years of experience in Metro D.C. 

Our professional agents will ensure you have suitable tenants and provide you with the peace of mind that comes from knowing your home is in good hands, even if you’re living in another country. Give us a call at 202-223-9019 to begin the process today.

Solutions We Offer Property Owners

You never want to end up with unsuitable renters in your home, especially if you aren’t around to keep an eye on them. A turnkey foreign service officer property management company like Nomadic Real Estate eliminates this challenge by taking care of most aspects associated with renting your home, including:

Onboarding the Property

Every property management situation we enter begins with setting a price and getting to know the house’s quirks. Nomadic Real Estate will visit your home and complete a walk-through, providing us insight on how much you should charge your tenants monthly. We’ll then develop virtual tours and 3D renderings to attract the right renters in a hurry.

Property Maintenance and Management

Regular maintenance and repairs are part of owning a home. It can be difficult, though, for foreign service officers to handle these jobs when working in another country. Nomadic Real Estate will take care of any emergency and non-emergency jobs that arise while ensuring the property stays compliant with local regulations.

Advertising and Tenant Screening

You can’t attract tenants without marketing the property, and Nomadic Real Estate takes care of that aspect for you. We also complete background checks, answer inquiries, read applications, negotiation terms, and execute the lease.

Collecting Rent

It can be next to impossible to collect rent when you’re working overseas. Nomadic Real Estate streamlines the process by receiving the money using ACH Direct Debit. We’ll then automatically deposit the cash into your bank account, so there’s no hassle whatsoever.

Turnover Services

There’s no guaranteeing one tenant will stay in your home the entire time you’re gone. That’s why Nomadic Real Estate offers strategic turnover services that include a full inspection of the property, complete with pictures, before any new renters arrive. We’ll also take care of any repairs and improvements that become necessary and assist as your tenants move into the home.

Nomadic Real Estate is a team of dozens of professionals committed to providing you with the best foreign service officer property management assistance available. Reach out to us today to learn more.

What homeowners 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

Your portal includes some extremely useful features that help you understand your property’s financial performance at a new level, with real-time transparency into every transaction.

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.
