What Needs To Be Done To Prepare A Property For Rent?
The property should be in the best possible condition to attract a quality resident. Paint should be in good shape with marred or dirty areas touched up. Neutral colors for walls and floors are best. Blinds or shades are ideal window coverings. The home should be “detailed” clean and the yard in excellent shape.
How Do I Determine The Rental Amount?
How Do You Market The Property?
The property is immediately added to our rental availability list, web sites, and other resources. These updated availability lists go out weekly to over 150 Realtor and Relocation Offices. Large ads may run in the Sunday newspaper. A sign is placed and marketing photos are taken within 48 hours.
How Long Will It Take To Rent?
Vacancy periods are market driven. There is also some luck involved in the right person looking at the right time. On average in today’s Cartersville market it takes between four to eight weeks to rent a home. Homes rent more slowly between Thanksgiving and New Years. Location and price can also effect the vacancy periods for homes.
What Are The Policies Regarding Pets?
What Are The Policies Regarding Smokers?
It is common to restrict smoking inside the property. This does not significantly reduce the marketability of the property.
Is It Possible To Refuse To Rent To Families With Children?
In federal, state, and local Fair Housing regulations children come under the protective class of “familiar status”. It is unlawful to discriminate against children in any way.
