The burden and stress that can sometimes be associated with being an independent landlord can sometimes make renting a property appear not worth the hassle. Recent years have shown an increase in property owners seeking a professional rental management Lombard firm for assistance with their property renting needs. Adding a property manager as the middleman between landlord and tenant can make the process of renting a property run smoothly and hassle-free for all parties involved.
Help Determining Appropriate Rental Fees
Often, landlords are emotionally invested in the property they wish to rent, making them feel the property should bring in a higher rent than is accurate for the market. Hiring a rental manager ensures that a professional, informed individual with knowledge of the market at hand will help the property owner gain a better knowledge of what a reasonable rental rate would be for their property. Property managers have a wealth of industry knowledge they can apply to determining a fair rental amount. Additionally, professional firms seek to price properties competitively, while still earning landlords the most return possible on their investment.
Advertising to Find Qualified Tenants
Property managers work to advertise their vacant rental properties, using tactics such as rental website listings, open houses, and print media to get the word out about each open property they are seeking to fill. Industry connections, word of mouth from existing tenants, and a strong network of real estate connections are also key benefits a strong rental management group will bring to the table.
Tenant Screening Services
A common concern of any landlord is that they could be putting the wrong person into their rental property, bringing property damage, noise violations, or missed rent payments into the picture later down the road. Property managers have extensive practices in place to ensure the tenants they clear to move into a property meet a stringent set of guidelines. Be sure the rental manager you decide upon runs background and credit checks, verifies income and job history, and checks references by contacting former landlords.
