Here’s a summary of our services and what we offer:
We only get paid after we’ve found you a tenant. Unlike many of our competitors, we never charge you a fee to get started. We only collect our fee after we do all the following:
- We review the current rental market conditions in your neighborhood. The Atlanta real estate market is constantly changing. Rental market conditions change as fast as the economy. This includes monthly rent prices. We’ll tell you how many other rental properties are on the market in your area, how much they’re asking, how much they’ve rented for in the past, and even give you an estimate on the length of time it should take to locate an applicant for your home. We’ll provide you with all the facts. You determine your asking rent price.
- If your property is currently occupied, we’ll co-ordinate our marketing to work smoothly with the move-out. We’ll make everything seamless as possible, allowing your current occupants to get moved out, get the home prepared for the next tenant, and have everything organized so that home spends as little time as possible without an occupant.
Getting the Property Ready to Rent
We’ll provide you with a list of things to do to get your property ready to rent. We’ll discuss important issues such as landlord insurance, home warranties, HOA requirements (if applicable), home maintenance, and so forth.
We’ll visit with you in person at the home, take photos to use for our advertising, and make sure everything is fully prepared to go on the market.
We Begin Marketing Your Home
You could spend thousands advertising your own property for maximum results, or you can tap into our proven marketing machine and locate a good tenant. We have a proven marketing and leasing strategy. We’ll market your home with the same intensity, no matter if your asking price is $700 or over $4,000 a month.
- Unlike most of our competitors, we market your home to the entire Atlanta Realtor community via the local MLS system. Many of our tenants come from other agents who will learn about your home this way, and in return, will bring a tenant.
- Internet advertising and website exposure account for nearly 80% of our tenants. Renters don’t go to newspaper classifieds anymore when it’s time to find a home, they go online. We’ll place your home on dozens of the top real estate websites, both local and national. In addition, most of our properties find tenants simply by being placed on our very own website: AtlantaLifestyle.com, which currently gets over 5,000 visitors each week; all who are looking for rental homes. You’d spend thousands of dollars trying to duplicate the amount of exposure we can provide you.
We Handle All the Showings
Only licensed real estate professionals will show your home. Our licensed agents show property seven days a week and are available at any time to help tenants find the perfect home. Our team of experienced leasing professionals are very mobile and often work from laptops, smart phones, and other portable devices, making them extremely tech-savvy when dealing with today’s technology driven consumer. Phone calls about your home are directly routed to professionals who are intimately familiar with your property and great at screening potential applicants.
As a landlord, nothing could be worse than renting your home to an unqualified tenant who won’t pay rent. Screening applicants is one of the most important functions we provide when you hire us. We’ll contact you as soon as we receive a rental application for your home. We’ll provide you with the most comprehensive screening services in the industry. On every application we recieve, we’ll pull credit reports, verify employment, check rental history, and conduct thorough background checks.
On every application, you’ll get a detailed report from us, helping you make the best decision on which applicant to approve. We’ll help you evaluate all applicants and show you how to best protect your interests, even if it means requesting a larger security deposit from a potential tenant. We’ll be there every step of the way to help you make a wise decision.
Since you’ll be managing the tenant, we feel you should be involved in the decision-making and the terms of the lease. We’ll get your authorization in writing and prepare the paperwork, just as you have approved it.
Sign the Lease
Once you choose a tenant, we’ll deal with all the final details such as negotiations, lease signing, security deposit submittal, move-in inspections, and collecting the first month’s rent. We’ll also provide any required exhibits, like lead-based paint disclosures, pet addendums, special stipulations, mold disclosures, and more.
We keep the 1st Month’s Rent as Our Commission
Yes our fees are comparable to our competition, but our results far exceed them. We guarantee to find a tenant for your home and we only get paid after we’ve extensively advertised your home, showed it to prospective tenants, screened all applicants, negotiated lease terms, and everything else listed above.
Why risk having your home sit empty for months, dealing with a real estate company who doesn’t have a clue how to get the job done! We realize homeowners have a mortgage payment due every 30 days, so our goal is to get your home rented quickly and only to qualified tenants.
Plus, we’ll save you thousands of dollars in advertising costs and potential liability, compared to you attempting to handle all these tasks on your own.
Next Year: If the tenant renews the lease or later buys your property, you don’t owe us anything.
