Leasing and Tenant Placement Services
|Although we are a full service property management firm, we are excited to offer owners Tenant Placement and Leasing Services Only. This one-stop shopping allows you to customize our services to your exact needs.
Why use a Property Management Company to find a tenant? A recent survey found these disturbing findings about DIY landlords:
- 44 percent conduct sex offender checks
- 66 percent conduct criminal background checks
- 21 percent sometimes or never conduct credit checks
- 55 percent contact past landlords for references
- 33 percent start the eviction process as soon as allowed by law
The lack of comprehensive tenant screening increases the risk property owners have related to rent collection and property damage, but also might risk the welfare of neighbors. In contrast, Real Property Management’s policy is to conduct a thorough review of every prospective tenant to avoid these risks. Just one problem related to a tenant could more than pay for years of property management services.
If you decide that you no longer want to manage your property after we find a tenant you can always switch to our full service property management services.
Comprehensive Marketing & Advertising Program – Real Property Management Raleigh spends thousands of dollars every year advertising our vacancies. As a result, we take hundreds of calls and emails monthly from prospective tenants that result in quick leasing times for our clients. We utilize signage at the property that allows a perspective tenant to call on the property and receive property specific information 24 hours a day! If they choose to speak to a Leasing Manager, they simply press a button to be connected to our office. Your property may also be listed on MLS to gain added exposure with many other real estate agents to get your property leased faster!
Rigorous Credit, Income, and Criminal Screening – Real Property Management Raleigh makes every effort to find tenants who will pay rent on time and will take care of your property. We require all applicants to verify their income to ensure they can afford the rent. We also run criminal background and credit background checks on everyone who is over age 18 in the home. We follow all federal and state real estate regulations to ensure you are in full compliance. We conduct an eviction background history as well to ensure the applicants payment history has not resulted in prior evictions or judgments. You as the owner will see and give final approval on the application and we will handle all lease document signing and collect all initial funds.
Tenant Guarantee Program – Ask about our tenant guarantee program that offers you the option to choose this plan and if your tenant is evicted or breaks their lease prematurely, we will find you another tenant at No Cost during the initial lease term.
Cost – The fee to place a tenant is one months full rent. This covers all of the advertising, pictures, videos and showings required to rent the property. We will also inspect the property prior to tenants moving in to document the condition. There is also a $99 set up fee to start.
