What to expect when leasing your Property:
The first step to leasing your property is to determine a fair market value. By doing this, your property will be inspected, its condition, size, location… etc and compared to similar properties like it. Once a rental rate is determined and agreed upon you will sign a Leasing Agreement giving myself and RE/MAX authorization to begin marketing your property to prospective tenants.
Once a tenant applies to lease your property, we will run a full background check, credit report, criminal records, etc. Once a tenant is approved through our system, I will notify you with information on the tenant giving you final approval for them. Once agreed upon, tenant will sign the new lease and pay a deposit securing the home until move in date. On day of move in, I will meet the tenant at the home, collect rent funds and turn over keys, garage remotes, etc. With full Property Management services, I will inspect the property on day of move in completing a thorough walk thru and Tenant will sign off on the condition of property, this is the same form used when they move out noting condition of property upon vacating. During the term of the lease I will continue to inspect the property and address any issues. I handle all tenant relations. During the last 30 -60 days of the lease term, if you wish to continue leasing, the property will be marketed and shown in order to minimize vacancy time between tenants. The following is some additional information on fees involved and performance guarantees.
