10 Steps to Faster Leasing

When you own rental property and your tenant moves out, everyday costs you money. In fact, the average vacancy can last two to three months without a strong marketing plan. That’s quite a bit out of your bottom line.

Too often inexperienced property owners end up with more vacancy days than necessary because they lack the resources and knowledge to quickly rent their property. As the nationwide leader in property management, Real Property Management Sioux Falls has developed a proven leasing process that shortens vacancy by finding reliable tenants more quickly.

First, we act quickly to help the owner prepare the home for rental, also referred to as getting the home “rent ready.” This includes professional re-keying, lock box installation, and guidance on any repairs or improvements that may be needed to help your property rent faster.

Next, we assist you in determining the best rate to lease your home quickly that is appropriate for the property and market. A professional evaluation with local expertise is essential to help you decide on the best rental price for your Sioux Falls rental property. This will aid in getting it rented as quickly and profitably as possible.

Then we advertise the rental home aggressively with a proprietary marketing strategy that includes free advertising across dozens of the most visited rental sites, including our own website and several other local outlets to attract more qualified applicants. We answer inquiries from prospective residents on demand and we enable yard signs to allow applicants to call or text for more information 24/7. We respond quickly to schedule professional showings with a team of responsive, experienced leasing agents who are committed to finding you reliable tenants. We collect applications from as many potential tenants as possible so you are assured of the best qualified tenant possible.

Next, we screen applications with expedited yet thorough background checks on every potential tenant over 18 years old including criminal, credit, employment, and rental history. This is very important, as well screened tenants are more likely to stay longer and avoid costly turnover down the road. We work with the client to select the best possible tenant from the applicants based on the screening process.

Then we manage lease signing and move-in, setting expectations clearly, and attending to all the details. Throughout the entire leasing process we provide unsurpassed service by our experienced team of Sioux Falls property management experts with weekly leasing updates, an information-packed online portal, and first class customer service.

In the end, a tested and efficient leasing process protects your cash flow while saving you time and headaches. You can rely on Real Property Management Sioux Falls for shorter vacancies, more reliable tenants, longer lease terms, and your own team of experts to support you every step of the way. Put our experienced team and proven process to work for you.

I signed up with Real Property Management 4 years ago, and couldn’t be more pleased. I had never rented out any property before, and was apprehensive… after all this is our home! An example of their care… last Sunday our renters had a water heater blowout that flooded the lower level. As we do not live near our property, I made one phone call to Real Property and they handled it from there.  Had a plumber change out the water heater, had the carpet experts on the site, and even contacted our insurance people.  All done within 24 hours. If you are thinking of leasing out your property, I don’t know how you could do any better than Real Property Management.
