A good rental experience starts with excellent leasing. When you’re looking for tenants, it’s easy to just accept the first person who applies. It’s tempting to “go with your gut” or hand over the keys because someone seems like a nice person.
It’s better to have a consistent marketing and screening process. The goal is to effectively and efficiently locate tenants who are responsible and qualified. You want renters who can be counted on to pay rent on time, take care of your property, follow the terms of the lease, and communicate openly and transparently.
Qualified tenants in the Greenville rental market are always looking for well-maintained homes in desirable neighborhoods, and finding them shouldn’t be a problem. When you work with professional Greenville property managers, you have a better chance of placing good tenants. We have the resources and the experience to market your property strategically, screen your tenants consistently, and maintain a positive and professional relationship with your residents.
Great Tenants Look for Great Properties
To find a qualified tenant, you need to provide a great rental home. Good tenants will have high standards when it comes to cleanliness and curb appeal. They’ll want an attractive and comfortable home that feels welcoming and spacious. Your property manager will ensure everything inside the property works before opening it up to showings. We’ll pay attention to landscaping and lighting. You want the best tenants on the market to be able to imagine living there.
Marketing and Advertising Your Greenville Rental Home
A good marketing plan will attract good tenants.
Your property manager will list your home for rent online. There are hundreds of rental sites that attract tenants. Some of them are free, and some of them will require a fee. You can also count on your listing to show up on your property management company’s website, inviting the well-qualified tenants they already work with to consider choosing your home. We will take some professional pictures, write a great and detailed description that includes pertinent information like price, property size, and rental terms, and post that listing all over the internet. We’ll get you as much exposure as possible.
Consistent Application and Screening Processes are Critical
We follow up with any potential tenant who has shown interest in your home. Your property manager will facilitate the application process and then move onto the tenant screening process.
The screening process is an important part of finding a qualified tenant. We gather all the necessary documentation and conduct a full background check. This includes a nationwide criminal background check and a nationwide eviction check. We look at income and verify that your prospective tenants will earn enough to cover your rent. We’ll talk to former landlords and find out if they were good tenants.
If you don’t have the resources or the knowledge to conduct a thorough and fair housing-compliant screening, a professional Greenville property management company can be your best asset. We find outstanding residents for our properties all the time. If you’d like to learn more, contact us at Letts Property Management.
