Please contact our office
to submit a listing for rent. We'll be glad to assist you in
getting the property on the market and start giving property tours to prospective tenants.
We offer a variety of services. Please visit our FAQ section below for more information.
1. How does the process work?
If you want us to help you rent your apartment, please call or email one
of our offices and ask to speak to one of our rental managers, or click here
to submit a listing online.Our rental managers will then put your unit into
our database and distribute it to all agents. If we have not had the listing
before, the manager will setup a time to preview the unit and review all of
the important information relating to the apartment as well as showing instructions.
We then show you apartment and once we have a tenant interested in the apartment
we will present the application as well as all of the background information
so you can make an informed decision on whether to accept them as tenants. After
you have accepted a tenant we will handle the lease paperwork with standard RHA
forms or will use any specific forms that you provide to us.
2. How much do you charge?
It is free for us to:
- List your property
- Market & show your property
We do have a fee equal to one month's rent, but how this fee varies. The landlord
can pay zero, half, or all of the fee. A property is more marketable when the tenant
doesn't have to pay a fee, but really it is up to you whether you want to pay any fees.
If you are interested in having us pull the credit for any applicants you find yourself,
we charge $25.00 and need a signed RHA rental application form( we can provide this to you at no cost)
If you would like use to handle all of the lease paperwork for tenants you find,
we charge $200.00 and will provide a:
- Standard form apartment lease
- Tenant lead law certification
- Apartment condition statement
- Rent and security deposit form
- Mold addendum
*Additional forms such as co-signer documents and addendums can be discussed.
3. Can I list with other offices?
Absolutely, you are free to work with any other offices.Our primary goal is to make
sure your unit gets rented. There are benefits to working exclusively with us though.(see question below)
4.What are the advantages of working exclusively with you?
The benefit of working with one office exclusively is that you know who has your
keys, the quality of agents who will be bringing you tenants, as well ease of
communication when communicating changes in prices, availability or when you need
to discuss specific rental preferences. In addition, if a rental agency knows that
a landlord lists only with them, the pressure is on them to rent the units. We
can't guarantee success, but we can tell you that we have over 30 years of rental
experience, have multiple offices and only experienced agents. If you are interested
in having us rent your units exclusively, please submit a contact request
5. Can I rent out the apartment myself?
Yes, you own the property, you always have the choice to market it yourself, many
landlords feel like they save money renting it out themselves, but constantly know
what is going on in the market, we are able to provide real time feedback meaning
higher rents. We also help do all of the showing and paperwork saving you time,
and we all know time = money.
