Avoid Vacant Rental Units
No rental property owner wants to have vacancies. But, a common mistake landlords make is ignoring the severity of them. Avoiding them is key to maximizing your return on investment. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Coastal Real Estate understands this. We can help reduce the vacancy rate of your rental property by finding high-quality tenants through effective marketing strategies. Our marketing efforts will ensure that your property gets as much exposure as possible, thereby reducing the amount of time it takes to find a tenant. From “For Rent” signs to word of mouth to PPC and social media marketing to rental listing sites, virtual tours and professional photography, rest assured we’ll find a tenant quickly.
Find the Perfect Tenant
You shouldn’t rent to just any tenant you find. Tenants aren’t all created the same. Some can be great, while others can be problematic. By hiring us, you can be certain that we’ll find you a great tenant for your property. One that pays on time, doesn’t cause negligent property damage, cares for the property, and rents long-term. How do we ensure this? To improve our chances of landing a great tenant, we’ll subject all prospective tenants to our screening test. Our tenant screening process qualifies a tenant based on their income, creditworthiness, and rental and criminal background. It’s only after a tenant has passed this test that he or she can be allowed to rent a property under our management. This ensures that we minimize the chances of landing potentially problematic or destructive tenants.
Stop Chasing Rent Payments
Chasing rent can be stressful and time-consuming. We can help you ensure rent collection is done in a timely manner. To make certain, we have a simple and convenient rent collection system for our tenants. These have proven to be effective at minimizing rent payment issues. We will also review your lease agreement to make sure it’s precise and clear. For instance, we’ll ensure it mentions key rent terms such as:
- The amount of rent
- When and where it is due
- The late fee amount, if applicable
- The grace period length, if applicable
- How rent is to be paid
