One of the most difficult and time-consuming tasks of being a landlord is finding the right tenant. Who is the right tenant? As a real estate investor, you want tenants that will pay their rent on time every time. You also want tenants that will take care of your property as if it were theirs.
The first step to finding the right tenant is the image you present when marketing your property. Intracoastal uses professional photos and quality descriptions in marketing your property. Ensuring we can attract more prospects that you would want as your tenant.
With the owner’s approval, Intracoastal Realty employs the same lockbox technology used by listing agents to sell homes. Using a lockbox allows licensed real estate agents from all firms in our area to show your home. This process eliminates the need for numerous duplicate keys and restricted ability to show your property. The more prospects that view your home means, the less time it will remain vacant.
Once a prospective tenant has expressed a desire to rent your property they must complete an application. This application can be completed online 24/7 or in person at our office. The following information will be checked and verified:
Unfortunately, many prospective tenants that fail to pass a property manager’s more rigorous screening turn to individual landlords that do not have the ability to do an in-depth check. Don’t let them take advantage of you. For property owners that wish to act as landlord, Intracoastal Realty offers our Finder’s Fee Program. With this program, we will market your property and screen prospective tenants for your approval. Once a tenant has been secured, and a lease has been executed the day to day landlord duties are turned over to you.
Once found, keeping the right tenant is just as important if not more so. Intracoastal Realty works hard to keep our owners happy, and we work just as hard to ensure our tenants are also happy. A happy tenant is more likely to renew, keeping vacancy rates down and rents flowing.
