Tips On How To Get Your Property Leased As Quickly As Possible

  1. Use Rently® Leasing Service instead of Agent Showing Leasing Service.  Since COVID 19 Rental Customers have preferred to use Self-Showing Access Technology instead of going through the trouble to schedule an appointment with an Agent.  According to Rently®, 42% of rental customers prefer to view property after work hours and or on the weekends.  It is difficult to get an Agent to show a rental property after hours or on the weekend.  On average it takes 40 viewings to obtain a Tenant.  Your property will receive more viewings using Rently®.
  2. Improve the condition of your property by cleaning the carpets and repairing and repainting any damage that you have on the interior walls.  Rental Customers have options because of the current oversupply of rental property on the market today.  Rental Customers are not desperate and will not settle for properties in poor condition.  
  3. Be sure that you are competitively priced on your rental rate.  Compare your property to similar properties in your area and lower the price to ensure that you will be the next property rented.
