Serving All of Hinkley
Have you always thought that you would like to turn your Hinkley home into a rental home and have this as part of your investment portfolio? If you have been thinking this, then know that you are not alone. However, the problem is that many people find that the idea of being a landlord is a bit too much. When this is the case, they often think that the only option they have is to put this home onto the market in hopes of selling this soon. But, having a quick sale is often a pipe dream. Even if the home were to be bought by the first person who sees it, chances are it will take a few weeks or months for this paperwork to go through. So, why not reconsider the idea of renting this home. But, instead of going at this on your own, use our professional services.
Our Professional Services Ease Your Mind
For those who are serious about their putting their home onto the rental market, then know that we are here. We are a full service property management firm that offers our professional services to those in the Hinkley and surrounding areas. Just what does this mean? This means that we handle all the things that you would normally handle as the landlord, yet you do not have to be actively involved.
What services do we offer?
– We make sure that your home is ready to be rented. We may make suggestions on upgrading old appliances or the like to make this more appealing to renters.
– Once the home is ready to hit the market, we suggest a price that is average for the area to get more people interested.
– We advertise this home onto the real estate market and deal with showing this, and collecting applications to live here.
– We go through those applications to find the one person who is the best fit for your home. We utilize tenant screening services to ensure that who is chosen is going to be worthy of living in your home.
– We then handle all the day to day activities. For example, we collect the rent each month, we become the point of contact for the tenant, and then we can arrange for maintenance or repairs that need to take place.
We take over the entire process so that you don’t have to worry about anything. That is why so many people turn to us when they are renting their homes, because they know that we get this done and we do it right.
We have worked with rental homes in the area for years. Those who have hired us to manage their rentals are more than happy to do this. They are getting the benefits of renting a home without having to put forth the effort that being a landlord takes. It is a win-win situation for everyone involved. If you are ready to take the plunge with your Hinkley home, then be sure to give us a call.
