PPS Homes staff is available at all times to respond to high-priority repairs.

How do you handle rental increases?

We continuously monitor rental values in order to make recommendations to the owners when lease terms become eligible for renewal. Comparable homes, seasonal influence, and trends are considered when making a rental rate recommendation to an owner. In addition, the past payment performance and tenant care of your home are considered when renewing a lease.
