FINDING A HOUSE TO RENT IN NASHVILLE IS EASY WITH OUR LISTINGS:
With Our Guarantees You Can Be Assured Of Nashville’s Best Property Management Service
We believe that hiring a Nashville property manager is all about trust and communication. That’s why we promote three of the industry’s most aggressive guarantees:
100% Happiness Guarantee
If you’re not satisfied for whatever reason, you can cancel your our services with no penalty or fee. Our goal is to make sure you’re satisfied and that you become a long-term client. If we perform well by finding you a great tenant, managing any maintenance issues, and collecting your rent, we believe you’ll want to do business with us for as long as you own your rental house.
Tenant Performance Guarantee
Finding great tenants who take care of your home and pay on time is our specialty. But we also understand that sometimes the application process can’t foresee random life occurrences. These are things like loss of job, divorce, or injury. If a tenant fails to live up to their lease obligation for at least the first six months, we will place another tenant in your home and waive the leasing fee.
All of our maintenance staff and vendors are licensed, insured and come with an ironclad guarantee. If there is a vendor or installation related problem with our work within the first year, we will make it right at no cost to you. This allows you to rest easy knowing that we have your satisfaction and best interest in mind.

Why Choose gkhouses For Your Property Management Needs In Nashville?
We believe that there are three important differences that make gkhouses your best choice for Nashville property management:
The Industry’s Most Talented Team
We only hire the best talent to work at gkhouses. We aren’t necessarily looking for property managers, but gifted and motivated individuals who are capable of learning the business, serving our clients, and leading people. Our team is second to none.
Customer Focused Innovation
We are not satisfied with property management as usual. We are continually looking for ways to innovate on behalf of our owners and tenants. We aim to serve you well and keep your tenants happy in your home.
Trust is the cornerstone of any business relationship. We believe your confidence in our ability grows by being uncomfortably transparent. We’ve found that owners don’t expect us to be perfect. What they do expect is for us to communicate and be open with them.
Frequently Asked Question
How quickly can you rent my home?
Renting your home is a function of the amount of traffic driven to see your home. Simply put, it’s a numbers game!
At gkhouses we take renting your home serious and harness the power of digital marketing tactics to get your house noticed, applications filled out and tenants placed.
We’ve found that it takes a certain number of showings and not a certain amount of time to lease your home. That is why our goal is to drive traffic to see your home as efficiently as possible.
Our current marketing efforts for our rental homes drive over 21,000 unique visitors to our website each month. This marketing traffic is what produces showings, which produces applications, which produces a well-qualified tenant for your rental property.
What are your fees?
Our fees vary depending on the homeowner and the rental property. However, in general, our fees are as follows:
- See our flat fee pricing model for up-to-date information.
- 10% management fee on any maintenance or construction items gkhouses subcontracts to independent contractors.
- The hourly market rate for any gkhouses employee’s labor for construction or maintenance items. The current rate is $78 per hours, but subject to change.
Contact us for more information on our fee schedule for your rental property.
When do I get paid?
Typically rent is late after the 3rd (according to our gkhouses lease) of the month. Once we’ve collected the rent, we will disburse owner funds and statements on 15th of each month.
Do you keep a reserve for maintenance expenses throughout the month?
Yes, we retain $500 per owner for up to five houses. If an investor has more than five houses, we will hold $100 per property. This reserve is to handle unforeseen maintenance items throughout the month. In the event maintenance continues to exceed that amount, we’ll review this amount and have a conversation with you about adjusting the reserve to a more appropriate amount.
How long have you been a professional property manager?
We established gkhouses in 2008. We initially began in the business by managing our own property. However, we saw the need in the market for a professional single-family property manager and decided to offer our services to others that had a high expectation of property management staff and a need for transparency and detailed accounting systems.
Our team of professional property managers has amassed a wealth of experience in the real estate industry as well as other industries to offer a battle-proven team of veterans for our clients.
How many properties do you manage?
We currently manage over 1,500 properties for more than 900 owners throughout the Birmingham, Chattanooga, and Nashville area.
Can I read a copy of your management agreement?
Absolutely, feel free to give us a call or email us at [email protected], and we’ll gladly email you a copy of our current management agreement.
Am I required to make my property available to Section 8?
No, you don’t have to accept Section 8 qualified tenants.
Are you licensed?
Yes, we are licensed with the State of Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia to manage rental property. And we also ONLY allow licensed and insured maintenance staff and vendors to work on our rental houses.
How Can I Best Reach You?
Our current owners can reach us at [email protected] and (615) 925-3880 ext. 3 during normal business hours. If you would like to learn more about our management services, we’d ask you to call (615) 925-3880 ext 3 or email [email protected]
If you email [email protected] your email will be answered in the order it was received. Communication is one of the gkhouses Three Uniques and one we know owners take seriously. If you have more questions about our processes for owner communication, feel free to reach out to us at the number above.
Can you put the money directly into my account?
Yes, we make ACH payments directly into owner accounts. We disperse to owners on 15th of the month.
Do I get to see the lease or sign it?
If you would like to see the lease, we can provide you with a copy. The tenant signs a lease with gkhouses as your Agent.
Do you sell real estate too?
If you come to us as a referral from an agent, we would refer you back to that agent. We also have staff that specifically focus on the selling of real estate should the need arise.
How is rent collection handled?
At gkhouses, we believe the best method for collecting rent is slow and steady pressure throughout the month as opposed to frantic and harsh pressure if rent becomes late. Not only do our tenants get friendly reminders that rent is due, but we also have weekly collections meetings where we discuss each tenant individually and decide the next step on a case by case basis. This has proven to be a powerful manner of handling rents and is validated in our 95%+ collection rate on tenants that we place.
How long of a lease do you sign?
A typical gkhouses lease is a five-year lease that auto renews each 12 months. A tenant can turn in a notice to move at the end of each 12 month period. If they do not, the lease will automatically renew for an additional 12 months. There is also a 5% rent increase each year unless an owner requests we keep rent the same.
How much security deposit do you charge the tenant?
One month’s rent
How soon can you start managing my property?
As soon as you sign a management agreement and hand over the keys. Almost immediately we will schedule a walk through by one of our experienced property managers and make sure everything is ready for this property to be rented.
What type of properties do you manage?
We specialize in single family houses.
What type of reports do I get and how often?
Each month you will receive an Owner’s Statement with a detailed description of any rent collected as well as maintenance performed on your home. Attached to that report will be a copy of all the invoices for maintenance performed at the property.
Who holds the tenant security deposit?
By Alabama Law and Tennessee Law, we hold the tenant’s security deposit in a dedicated account at a local bank.
