Rocktown Property Management will begin with an assessment of your property. We know the market well and have extensive experience in optimally pricing homes for rent.
We offer in-house contracting services, including maintenance and turning between tenants, to quickly get your home ready to lease and maximize rental income for you.
Once your home is ready to rent we will begin extensive advertising online. We will put a “For Rent” sign in the yard. If you have a property accommodating students, please note we also attend JMU’s off-campus housing events and stay active with the student community to help ensure you always have tenants for the upcoming school year.
We will thoroughly screen potential tenants by checking their rental references, employment history and credit. For students we may require a parent to co-sign the lease.
Once a tenant is found we will get a signed lease and perform a move-in inspection. Rocktown Realty will handle all communication with the tenant including rent collection and maintenance requests. Upon move-out we will do a final inspection with the tenant and will handle the refund of any security deposit due.
Rocktown Realty receives a 10% commission per month of the total lease amount. To secure tenants we charge a $100 per tenant fee for rentals by the room and a flat $250 fee for residential listings.
To get a price on just performing the turn work on your home for the next set of tenants, please contact us for an estimate.

Bridgewater Area Information
Among the first families of European descent in the area was the Dinkle family. Around 1810, John Dinkle built a sawmill and a grist mill on the North River, a tributary of the South Fork of the Shenandoah River. The tiny community was first called Dinkletown. The area was known as McGill's Ford before the Dinkles moved here.
The name was changed to Bridgeport, because it was a flatboat port at a bridge. Even after it was no longer a port, the bridge was still there, hence the final renaming as Bridgewater. During the American Civil War, some troop transit and skirmishes happened nearby. The Valley Campaigns of 1864 involved the region. Source From Wikipedia
