This article walks you step-by-step through the entire process of becoming a new client.
I realize dealing with a house can be stressful.
I just got off the phone with a woman who had never leased a property through a property management company before.
Her husband is in the military, and she needs to be out of the house soon.
Since they don’t have much equity in the home, they decided to call us to find out how we could help.
Much of what I told her is described below.
To get the ball rolling, we can either talk on the phone or make an appointment to meet at your rental property.
At either of those meetings, we’ll give you an estimate of the amount of rent your property will bring.
We’ll let you know of anything you might need to do for the property to lease.
We’ll review all of the charges for property management.
Then, we’ll review the paperwork required for us to get started.
If the property is currently being managed by another company, we’ll provide the paperwork required to give the former property management company proper notice.
Once we have the signed property management agreement, we can start our work.
If the property is going to need some make ready or cleaning, we’ll get that work going.
It’s usually best to wait until after the make ready work is done before taking photos.
We’ll also prepare a marketing plan for you to review.
Ideally, we would get keys to the property from you if the property is vacant.
Then, we’ll go to the property to get high-quality photos that we can use to advertise the property.
Or, if you are still living in the property, we’ll just make an appointment to go the property to get those photos.
Either way, the idea is to get the advertising going as soon as possible.
You’ll also need to provide us a voided check so that we can do a direct deposit into your bank account once the property is leased.
