  • Request for Proposal for Property Management Services Notice: The City of Raleigh invites all interested parties to submit proposals to the City to manage, lease, operate, and maintain the affordable housing (scattered-site) inventory owned by the City of Raleigh. The City is seeking a property management company that while being sensitive to the needs of low income families can assist the City in maintaining high standards for its affordable housing program and implement property management policies and procedures that reflect the industry standard. In addition, it is imperative that the properties receive a superior level of both structural and grounds maintenance in order to protect the public's investment. A mandatory pre-proposal meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 19, 2016 at 9:00 am at the Housing & Neighborhoods Department, Community Development Division, 310 W Martin Street, Ste 101, Raleigh, NC.
