3)     We Strictly Enforce Our Lease Policies

No one likes to be the bad guy. But when tenants fail to meet their obligations under the lease agreement, swift action is a must. We understand that letting the small thing slide leads to bigger problems down the road. That's why we have strict policies in place, and we enforce those policies when necessary. That includes everything from late fees, to unauthorized pets, smoking in apartments, tampering with safety equipment and more. Our policies are strict and our expectations are high, but we've found that both our tenants and our owners appreciate when everyone is held to a high standard and all residents adhere to the policies that they agreed to when accepting the lease agreement.

We believe that having the latest technology at your fingertips provides our clients with the best , most streamlined experience possible.

1)     Our Tenant Screening is Second to None

Our screening process begins before an applicant even sets foot inside your property. All interested parties must provide income, subsidy and pet information before scheduling an appointment. After the showing, every prospect receives a text with a link to our mobile-friendly rental application. Our screening process includes: A full rental application, obtaining pay stubs, obtaining ID, full credit report with score, judgement search, criminal history search, verification of employment, verification of rental history, pet screening, service animal verification and more. We weigh the results against our minimum qualifying standard and a decision is made based on the facts. This rigorous screening process drastically reduces the likelihood of an unqualified candidate being approved and placed in your home. If you've ever dealt with bogus references, rental scams, delinquent rent payments, property damage or worse, then you know how imperative it is to have the most thorough upfront screening process available- a process that we've perfected at Hudson Property Services.

What Our Customers Are Saying:

Highly Rated on Google!

“Hudson Property has managed a small rental property for me for about two years, and I am delighted with their service. It's an old building, I'm an out of town landlord, and Poughkeepsie regulations and market conditions are not a game. Matt has kept the building running smoothly, dealt with vacancies and repairs in a quick and financially reasonable manner, and is ALWAYS pleasant and responsive. Most of the time if I write him with a question, he is already looking into the same thing (for example, a water bill was unusually high, and he had already started checking for leaks). I also feel that he is fair to tenants. Hudson Properties is my third property manager for this building over about seven years of ownership, and by FAR the best I have found!

— Karen Hartman

“We enlisted Matt and his company to manage our rental property and couldn't be happier. We live a few thousand miles away and needed someone on the ground to handle all the day in and day out activities. HPS did so in a professional manner and are quick to respond to questions for both our tenant and our needs. An amazing business partner.”

— Jeremy Town

I was referred to Matt by a friend who praised his competence. Upon meeting Matt, I was absolutely impressed with his professionalism, his expertise, his attention to every detail involved in renting my apartment. He did an amazing job showcasing the apartment online with vivid pictures and a virtual tour. He was very knowledgeable in everything real estate and walked me through the entire process of renting, tenant screening, signing of papers, as this was my first property, which made it very easy for me to have complete confidence in his abilities in finding the right tenant. He kept me informed every step of the way, answered all questions promptly, big and small, by text or calls. He was very efficient and thorough, and the presentation of the apartment was impeccable! Within days I was matched with a qualified tenant. Thanks Matt for doing such an outstanding job and I won't hesitate to refer you to anyone looking for a real estate agent.
