There are many good reasons with landlords should use an agent to rent out their property.
-I will make any suggestions for any fixes or improvements to do on your property before listing-I will go over recent rental activity in your neighborhood to help you determine proper pricing. Proper pricing is just as important in renting your home as it is when it is time to sell. The longer your property is empty, it is costing you money.-I will take numerous high quality photographs to be used in the marketing of your property and write custom ad copy that features the benefits on your property.-I advertise properties for rent pretty similar to the way I handle homes for sale. Your property will be advertised on Realtor.Com, the MLS, WPSIR.com, Lisingbook, Trulia.Com, Zillow.Com among others. This comprehensive marketing strategy gets you a renter in a timely manner.-I will arrange for showings for your property from perspective tenants that see the property advertised and from other agents that have clients looking for properties to rent. -Ability of qualify tenants that have made an offer on your property by checking their credit, renting history, employment and personal references.-Advise you on all offers.-I can prepare a standard lease with you. When it is time to get in signed & collect the funds, I will arrange for you to meet with the tenant & then get everything signed.If you are interested in renting your apartment, condo or investment home out, please contact me, Jonathan Hall with William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty, at 203-417-0523.
