Tulare Property Management

 

Are you a homeowner in the area that has decided to move but are debating on whether to sell or rent your home to the market? If you are hesitant to put your home on the market as you do not want to sit on this for a year or more to get it sold, then you are not alone in this major decision that is to be made.

 

There are plenty of people every day who decide that renting their home on the market is the best option. It gives them income for the home and they can go ahead and move to their new location without fear that they end up with two homes, one that is not being lived in.

 

However, for those who have a few doubts about renting their home to the market, they should know that these worries are unfounded. There are companies in which can manage this for you…one being Tulare Property Management.

 

Why People Turn To Us

 

When it comes to renting a home, many people automatically turn to Tulare Property Management to handle their home. Why do they do this? They know that they are not going to have the time or patience to be a landlord. Let’s face it, being a landlord takes a lot of time and it can be riddled with issues. If you are not equipped to handle these, you may start to think that making this home into rental property is not something that you should have done. Other people simply don’t want to even consider handling a rental property. And that is where we can help.

 

What We Do

 

When Tulare Property Management steps in to manage your rental property, you have the reassurance that everything is being done as it should be. You can step away and go about living your normal day to day to life while we handle everything. So, what do we do?

 

As a full service property management firm, we basically do it all. Here is just a short list of what we will handle when your property is in our care:

 

We ensure that the property is ready to be rented.
We make suggestions as to what may need to change to make this property more rental friendly.
We advertise this home on the market for you, going with traditional and nontraditional methods to reach the largest number of people who would be interested in renting your home.
We show the home to potential renters.
We accept all the applications to live here.
We use tenant screening services in order to determine who is the best for renting your property. We take into consideration not only the past rental history but their background and credit checks as well.
Once the applicant has been selected to move into the home, we then handle the day to day tasks of having a rental home. This may include collecting rent or even making sure that maintenance is handled right.

 

When you work with us, you are going to find that it is easier than ever to have a rental home without having to do the work.
