Serving All of Day Creek
For those who call the Day Creek area home, they often talk about how this area felt like home as soon as they moved into this area. For those who have outgrown their current home and looking to move within the area, they may be wondering what they should do with their home now. You do have the option of putting this home on the market to be sold. However, are you prepared to wait for months or even years to get this home sold?
While they are those who are looking to buy, more people are looking to rent these days. They often see renting as the better option since it allows them to have a bit more freedom as to where they are located from year to year. For this reason, many of those who own homes in this area are looking to rent them to those who are looking to move here. But, they are not doing this on their own.

Getting your home ready for the rental market. We may make suggestions as to what needs to be done, appliances that need to be updated or the like. THe idea is to get your home looking super appealing to those who are looking to rent and move into this area.
Once the home is ready, we start to advertise this. We will take pictures, set a price point and then use traditional and online methods to make this work. Our goal is to reach the largest audience that we can in order to get the best tenant that is out there. The more people that we can reach, the better the chance of getting a tenant that you adore.
