Listing to Lease Signing
You've got to know the rental market for your property. You need expert judgment when evaluating condition, pricing and how to attract the right tenants quickly. We can provide you with property listing solutions.
You’ve got to know the rental market so you know where to price your property.
You’ve got to know what condition the property needs to be in, to attract the best tenants. You might know from experience, or even intuition, that if tenants will accept a property in poor condition, they are not going to be great tenants.
If your property needs work, you’ve got to decide how much work to do, who to hire and just how extensive the work needs to be. This is a significant judgment call and if you’re wrong you could overpay for unnecessary work by thousands of dollars.
You've got to know the top rental websites, you'll need to create accounts to post on those sites and you're going to need the best and most competitive marketing pictures.
You’ve got to secure the best marketing photos you can. Do you need a professional camera? What about a drone for aerial photography? Do you know how to compress the photos so they will upload to all the marketing sites?
You’ve got to describe your property in a way you think prospective tenants will respond well to. You’ve got to know the likely demographic for your property, and decide whether to allow pets, whether to cover any utilities, etc. You'll also want to track any changes you've made to your listing across all the websites so you can see what works and what doesn't, and track how the market is responding to your listing.

Now that the property is listed, you begin the hard work! You have to take all the calls and emails about your property--cutting into your personal time and interrupting your life--and you have to set up showings of your property.
Now you have to go show your property. Whether you live next door or across town, this can be a huge pain! Is it safe? How do you know who you are meeting there and what will you do if something goes wrong? Prospective tenants say they will be there, but then they don’t show up. Or they show up late...
Once you’ve found prospective tenants who are interested in your property, you will ask them to complete a rental application. Once you have the rental application how do you know what to look for?
What if they have terrible credit, but seemed really nice at the showing? What if they have great credit but they don’t have a job lined up in the area yet? What if you found an eviction on their record but they had a lengthy explanation about why it wasn’t their fault (or maybe they claim that’s not even them?!) Should you wait for a better application to come along, meanwhile racking up more vacancy expenses, or should you settle on the current applicants and hope they work out?
You’ve chosen your tenants, so now it’s time to have them sign a lease! Are you certain your lease will cover all the possible scenarios with your property?
Has your lease been tested in court? Did you remember to require renter’s insurance and proof of utilities transferred into your new tenant’s names before giving them keys?
Lastly, you remembered to secure move-in documentation of the property, right? Date stamped, time stamped HD pictures of every square inch of the property, inside of all appliances, cabinets, the AC filter, proof you had smoke alarms and CO detectors. If you don’t have this level of proof of the move in condition, any security deposit claims upon move out could end up costing you 3x what you tried to charge the tenants - plus court costs. You did this, right?
