Serving All of Squaw Valley
Squaw Valley Property Management
What is one way that people are getting rid of the extra property that they have in their possession While some people are putting this onto the market. They may discover that their home sits there for months and months before it sells. This can really put a damper into your plans especially if you have already found a home to buy or want to move immediately. That is why many people are turning these homes into rental homes.
They find that the rental market is thriving. People always want the option of having a rental home rather than buying due to the freedom that this can give a person. We highly recommend that you work with the professionals at Squaw Valley to ensure that you are doing this correctly and seeing this investment pay off.
How We Start
When you come to the professionals at Squaw Valley it may surprise you at how we are going to get your home onto the market. We are not going to immediately put this on the market. To do this would be very unprofessional of us and could lead to you not getting your home rented. We take the time to evaluate this rental home to make sure that it is up to our high standards of where a rental home should be.
We may make suggestions on what you should change to make this more appealing to the renters of the world. This is also the time that we discuss what price point this rental should be listed at. The idea is to find a price point that you agree with that is also going to be impressive to potential tenants looking to move into the area.
Advertising and Finding the Tenant
Once the home is ready to be advertised, we use a variety of methods to make sure that this home is being seen by those who are interested in renting in the area. When people contact us about renting this home, we will show this to them so that they can see it first-hand. And when they decide that they would like to live here, they will have to fill out our application to live here. These applications are meant to help us look for the best tenant.
After we have several applications to live here, we are going to go through these using our tenant screening services to find the person that best fits our requirement. We want someone who is going to pay their rent on time and will treat the property as it should be treated. Our tenant screening services should give us a good idea of which tenant is the best choice.
After the tenant moves into the home, the professionals here at Squaw Valley property management are going to become the point of contact for the tenant. You, the owner of the property, can sit back and relax knowing that your home is in good hands. That is why so many people turn to us to handle their rental.
