– We advertise this home to the rental market to ensure that we attract attention from those who are looking to move into the area.
– We show this home to potential tenants and accept their application to live here.
– We go through these applications with our tenant screening services to ensure that the person who is being chosen to live here is going to be a good fit for everyone.
– We then collect rent, and become the point of contact for the tenant if they ever have issues.
Ultimately, our Auberry Property Management team does it all for you.
