Serving All of Verdi
Verdi is a small and exclusive community that sits in between the California and Nevada Border. This area boasts the very best this area has to offer. The convenience of being close to all the amenities in Reno, but nestled against the western corridor with plenty of pine tree and mountain views. Verdi has
a neighborhood feeling to it that many people love. It is the type of town that neighbors know one another, yet not so far away from the major cities that you have to travel to find what you need. This is one reason why so many people love to call this area home. While the area may be small, many people make the mistake of thinking that rentals are not available here. However, that is not the case! Many people who own several homes find that renting these out to those who are interested is a great way to make a little extra money each month.
Let Us Help
We can help with renting a home in the Verdi area. We work with you, the homeowner, to make this process as easy as possible. We first market this property to the area via traditional and online means to reach the largest audience. Once people start to apply to live here, we utilize background investigations, prior rental histories and the like to find the one person that is going to be the best fit for your property. However, that is not all that we do. Once the home is rented, we handle the day to day care that a rental home may need. For example, maintenance on the grounds, or arranging for repairs to be made on the home when needed. We also, collect the rent from the tenant each month and pass this onto you.
We have an investment in the community of Verdi, we want to see it grow, and part of that growth is getting the rental market to where it needs to be. Not only this, but our property management services are meant to make your life easier. Being a landlord is not easy, we simply make it look that way since we do the work for you.
