During the leasing process you will work with a knowledgeable and experienced leasing professional whose only goal is to get your property marketed and rented quickly. During this time, you can expect us to be checking on your property and showing it to prospective tenants, as well as updating the listing on various websites, answering potential tenant questions and communicating with you. Our team will ensure that your property is presented in its best light online and in person to get you a great tenant.
Pricing the home correctly is one of the most important factors in getting it rented quickly. We start with a competitive rental price analysis which combines market data with our professional knowledge of current market conditions to give you the most accurate rental price possible. Every neighborhood has different characteristics and challenges. We will examine your specific market and position your home to compete against other vacant properties. This will get the home rented fast and for the most that the market will bear.
Overpricing the home will cause the property to rent less quickly, costing you time and money. Many companies promise this expertise but we strive to use every tool at our disposal to completely saturate the marketplace with your home. That is our commitment to you.
If your property doesn’t look good online then prospective tenants will not want to come view it in person. We take professional photos and video tours of our homes - In our experience properties that have professional photos get rented much faster. We have invested in quality cameras and editing software to help highlight the beauty of your property. We also work with professional photographers who, for an additional fee, can offer reasonably priced packages including pictures and video tours.
Our strategy of saturation includes an arsenal of websites and technology. In fact, your home may be marketed on as many as thirty different websites at any given time during the leasing process. But that is not all. Our website attracts many prospective tenants every day due to our high visibility on google and other search engines. Not many companies can say that. We promise to use every tool to shorten your vacancy duration.
