We have one a few units left for the BRAND NEW units at Redhawk Commons. These go so fast, especially the one bedrooms on the ground floor. Don’t miss you chance at brand new units in Cape close to campus. This is the month that most of our units are rented for the following the school year!

Executive Level Rentals

We are in the season of large, beautiful, Executive Level Homes for rent. These come around every Spring. They are definitely something to envy! These homes are typically 3 to 5 bedrooms and have a price tag of around $1,700 + per month. But they are worth it! You get the luxury, space, and location you could normally only dream of. With a qualified application and a 12 month lease contract, one of these beauties can be yours. Here is a list of our current available Executive Level Homes for rent this Spring:

 

2590 Walden Blvd. Believe it or not, this is the smallest of Executive Level Homes, with just 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. It’s still very spacious and it in a wonderful neighborhood called Walden Park. You get all the amenities with this one, including a Club House, 24 hour workout facility and heated swimming pool.

2972 Pine Hill Spur. The next one on our list is this beautiful home, also in Walden Park. This one features hardwood flooring throughout, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and open concept. Coming in at 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, this is one of the larger homes in the Walden Park neighborhood.

 

 

1824 Greenbrier. This lovely home is located in a quiet, established neighborhood here in Cape Girardeau. We love this house for its charm and HUGE garage! You can’t go wrong with a house like this. Its the type of traditional home you want to raise a family in.

 

2505 Copperfield.  This house was just built a couple years ago. We love this for the updated features and higher end finishes. This one definitely deserves a look at with its large 4 bedrooms and finished basement.

 

Private Address. Last but not least, is our expansive house located in the middle of Cape Girardeau. This one is so exclusive, we can’t even give out the address! We can’t enough of this property and the view from the front porch. It looks over several acres of land.

 

Check all of these properties out on our website, CapeAreaRentals.com, to see inside pictures and more information about each property.  We hope you enjoy these as much as we do. Each one is like an episode of House Hunters or Lottery Dream Home!

Decorating for Christmas

Tips on decorating for Christmas

 

We love this time of year, the weather is nice and chilly, the apartments are cozy and warm, the decorations… are on point! Here are a few tips on effective ways on decorating for Christmas in your cozy apartment:

 

1 ) Get creative! We love how our residents use items they already have and spice it up with some lights!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2) Use small nails to hang up any stockings or wall hangings, do not use command strips- these just damage the walls.

 

3) Pick a them or color scheme and stick to it.

I love the pops of red throughout!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We love that our residents love the holidays as much as we do. These pictures are some great examples of how to decorate a cozy apartment the right way.

Merry Christmas!!

Pet Friendly

Here at Executive Property Management, we have several pet friendly properties. We love our pets at home and want our residents to enjoy their pets at their home as well. Do you love your pet? Send us a picture of your pet in front of your apartment and we can post it to our social media page! We love seeing happy tenants, including their pets. 

In order for our properties to remain pet friendly, we do have a few rules we ask everyone to abide by:

• All pets must be fully grown and under 35 lbs

• No puppies or kittens

• Must be house trained

• Dogs must be on a leash when outside

• Pick up after your pet outside

• Pets must be registered and immunized in accordance with all applicable laws and requirements

• Dogs cannot bark loudly in an apartment setting

 

Following these simple rules makes for a happy place, happy residents and happy pets! If you would like to add a pet to your lease or have any questions, contact us here. 

Student Rentals

Spring semester is just around the corner…

Have you secured your housing for the Fall? Yes, I said Fall. Majority of the next Fall Semester student rentals have already been marketed and some leased. If you haven’t given any thought to your housing next year, you are way behind. If you aren’t on a waitlist, you are behind.  If you are thinking about housing but don’t really know where you want to live yet, you are behind. If you are looking but haven’t found anything, getting better. If you have found your apartment or house close to campus and signed and lease and paid the deposit, you are right on time!

Most student rental companies in the area have already offered their current residents special renewal options. We have also started marketing our student rentals for the fall semester and we are signing leases and collecting deposits. Now is the time to lock in your housing for the next school year, or you may miss out or be stuck with something not so close to campus. We have several student rentals and houses close to campus and we barely post them to our website before we rent them. Larger homes are a hot commodity in this area and if you aren’t already on a waitlist, it might be too late for a big house close to campus.

Don’t fear though! We are adding several new additions to our property at Redhawk Commons. If you sign up soon, you could have one of the newest apartments in town! We also have several college houses that haven’t been available for a few years (tenants are graduating) that will be available this May! Don’t forget to check out our website and social media for updates on listings. You can also contact us here or call us at 573-332-8100 and at the very least, set up some showings and get yourself on a waitlist!

Winterize

Tis’ the season to be cold! It is time to winterize your home again.

“Winterize?” you say. We use this term to describe how to prevent your home from becoming a really cold swimming pool in the winter months.

 

Every year, we get a bit of cold weather, sometimes extreme, usually not so much. This year, the forecasters are predicting a cooler than normal winter. For some of us, this just means fewer work/school days and more artsy pictures of pretty snow posted on Instagram. For the rest of us, it means winterizing our homes for the rest of the season. One huge mistake we found last year was some of our slab foundation houses left their outside water hose attached to the spigot. When the outside temps reach a freezing degree, these hoses tend to freeze to the spigot and cause the pipes inside the walls to freeze. Once these pipes freeze, they tend to burst and cause some major damage. We try to remind all of our tenants every year to disconnect that hose but occasionally, the weather will warm up and you need that hose one more time and then its forgotten about… until they freeze. So we ask everyone to do a quick assessment of their property:

Do I have a water hose outside and is it UN-hooked? ✔

Is my thermostat set to at least 58°? ✔

Do I have a small stream of water running in at least one sink? ✔

These few things can really make a difference in the winter months.

 

We have several college type properties around town. Houses, apartments, duplexes, etc. Most of the students pack up and go home for the holidays. When leaving town, it is extremely important to remember to set your thermostat to heat and unhook any outside hoses. The most common mistake our college students make is turning the thermostat completely off and inadvertently, freezing up the apartment in their absence. You may not know, but if the unit gets above or below a certain temp, you are technically breaking your lease agreement now. These extreme highs and lows can affect the unit in negative ways and you could be held liable for any damages.

 

One last thing, don’t forget about your pets during the cooler months. Dogs get cold too! When you leave for winter break, take your pet with you!

For any questions please contact us here. 

Thank you!

 

 

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving ! We are feeling extra grateful this season for all of the positive reviews and awesome people we have had the pleasure of working with. If you are also feeling the love, take a moment and drop us a google review here

Not only do we love seeing all the positive reviews, we also learn a lot. We take every opportunity to improve our business and reviews definitely aid in that. Feedback is a great tool to use to improve our system and better respond to issues. We are forever grateful that you give us these opportunities and help us grow.

Also, as you probably already know, we have a social media presence that we are trying to increase. If you would take the time to like our Facebook page as well as our Instagram page, that would be greatly appreciated.

Our Holiday Hours are as follows: 

We would also like to remind our students and anyone else leaving for the holidays to leave the heat on in your apartment or house. You never know with Missouri weather what we may get, but with colder temps, its very important to keep the unit warm enough to keep the pipes from freezing.

Have a wonderful and safe trip home and Happy Thanksgiving!
