Detailed market research provides insights as to what the market will provide. As important as monthly rent is – length of term and quality of tenant are important as well. High rents from poor tenants can result in low net rents, as repairs, evictions are costly. We focus on gaining the best possible rent the market will provide with the least amount of tenant risk.
Quality matters. Ensuring all necessary repairs are made help as does ensuring your property is clean. Curb appeal helps. Mowed lawns and fresh and/or clean paint create good first impressions. Timely communication and interactions are essential. Completing paper work, delivering keys and the like on time avoids delays.
