Renting out your home quickly is an important part of the leasing process. There’s a lot at risk when you’re facing a long vacancy. The lost rental income isn’t the only thing you’re working against. There are many other costs associated with a vacant home that you may not be thinking about. These include the costs of utilities and landscaping. You may have to have vacant property insurance. There’s potential vandalism or theft.
A lot of things add up to make a vacant home one of the most costly expenses a landlord faces.
Finding a Quality Tenant
At Alarca Realty, we provide a guarantee that we’ll find a qualified tenant for your Charlotte rental property within 21 days of listing it on the market.
The emphasis is on qualified. Anyone can find a tenant within a week or two, especially if the proper screening isn’t being done. However, owners need the peace of mind that the tenants being placed in their properties are well-screened and qualified.
We need to make sure that tenants will fulfill the terms of their lease agreement, including paying rent on time and taking care of the property.
Requirements for Renting Your Charlotte Property Quickly
We are proud of our ability to place high quality tenants in the homes we’re renting out within 21 days. To be eligible for this guarantee, our owners must meet the following conditions:
- Make sure you’re pet-friendly. If you’re wondering how long it’s going to take you to rent your Charlotte property, we can tell you that your vacancy will be a lot shorter if you allow pets. We’ve found that over 60 percent of households have pets. If you don’t allow tenants to move in with their furry family members, you’re drastically limiting the pool of potential renters.
- Make sure your property is in rentable condition. To rent your home in a matter of weeks, you want to make sure you can appeal to the broadest array of tenants. Everything should be clean and functional. There should be fresh paint on the walls. The exterior should be cleared of debris. The home must be inviting and welcoming and ready for move-in.
- Prepare for an aggressive marketing strategy. Our guarantee comes with a 21-day marketing plan, which owners must agree to if they want to take advantage of our leasing guarantee. We’ll always talk about what that involves and how it helps us get your property rented quickly.
- Allow self-showings. We have found that when tenants can see the property on their own schedule, you’ll rent your property quicker. It’s the best way to handle the showing process, especially when social distancing is still so important.
These are the things that will help you rent your property out to high quality Charlotte tenants as quickly as possible. If you have any questions about our 21-day guarantee or our Charlotte property management services, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’d love to tell you more. Contact us at Alarca Realty.
