Use all the tools you have to rent or sell a home


I often get questions about how to rent a home. I have a client who owns homes in an area that I do not cover and they are having problems renting a property that they have another property manager helping them. They asked me the other day why I thought their home was not renting and they have yet to get a call on the property. I told them that I really needed to be hands off due to the fact that they are with another company but the one thing I said to them was that they need to think in terms that renting and selling homes are not that much different when it comes to marketing.

Some people may laugh when I say that, but if you think about it, you will understand my reasons for saying that. The money involved is much different and the timetables are different, but people looking for rental property are looking for much of the same things that people buying homes are looking for. I was interested in what the problems could be for the property that my clients were asking me about, so I looked it up and the one big mistake the other Property Manager was making at least in my opinion was that it was on some web sites, but not the MLS.

The reason that many Property Management companies do not use the MLS is that they don’t want to share the commission that they get from renting the property. Most management companies charge ½ of one month’s rent when they rent a property and this is not much money, So for a Management company to have to share that money with another Broker is difficult, but if you don’t use the MLS, you should at least let the owner of the property know what your plans are, so they can decide if they want to use your services. The owner of the property may also want to throw in some extra money to offer other Realtors on the MLS.

The reason using the MLS is important is that many Realtors do have clients that are renters and even though there is not much money involved you are opening up the property to much more potential Tenants then if you just try and rent it on your own. In my business of Property Management in Orange County Ca. I find that Another big mistake that Realtors make is that they offer $100 on the MLS just to get the property on, but they know that they will not get any Realtors showing the property but it allows them to tell their clients it is on the MLS.

Most of my properties that I rent, come from a sign on the property, but I always put my properties on the MLS and I offer at least ½ of my fee to get Realtors to show the property. I understand the temptation not to use the MLS, but if you don’t use it, you are taking away the largest tool in our toolbox as a Property Manager and that is a huge mistake. Again, renting is not much different then selling a home and if you as a Realtor don’t work the property with the same intensity that you do in selling a listing, then you are doing a disservice to your clients.

Just as selling a home, price is a huge factor when trying to find a Tenant and if your property is getting no activity, you need to evaluate your price and adjust. Remember the longer your property is vacant the more money you will lose and never be able to recuperate, even if you get a higher price on your property. Do the math. If you price your property at $2000.00 per month and it should be priced at $1900.00 and your property stays empty one extra month you will lose $1900.00 and if you do after one month get $2000.00 it will take you 19 months to make up what you lost for having your property vacant for the exra month. It is not worth the extra price.

What my clients are saying  

5 reviews 5.0 star rating 1/21/2016 I was tired of using a large management team to manage my investment property. I felt I was always on the back burner. I was recommended to Tony from a business associate, he assured me I would be very pleased. Well that was an understatement, Tony is amazing. He's above all honest and always available for my concerns. I'm not as well versed as other investors with property management and maintenance and tenant relations, Tony has been an excellent partner and has guided me through quite a bit of needed repairs and worked far beyond what was expected to help turn my little investment into quite a prosperous investment, If what your looking for is prompt return calls, honest direction and someone very knowledgeable with general contractors and real estate laws, Tony is your man.
