All property owners want the best tenants they can find in their rental properties. The first step in finding great tenants is to send your listing out to a lot of websites. At Ravago Group, we send our listings to ReMax.com, Homes.com, Zillow and about 35 other websites (too many to list!). You want to get your property advertised as broadly as possible.
Second, make sure you take a lot of pictures. All of our listings include at least 10 or 20, sometimes even 30 great photos. You might see some rental property listings with only one or two pictures, and that really doesn’t give a viewer a thorough idea of how the place looks. The more pictures you have, the better your chances of engaging potential applicants. The large number of pictures will also keep people on the site longer, giving them the opportunity to look for a property that is just right for their needs.
Networking with real estate agents is also important. We always share our listings with the top real estate agents in the area. A lot of sales agents are also showing rental properties now as well because the inventory is so low. We always make sure our listings are fresh in their minds so that when they have a client looking for a place to live and they decide not to buy, the agent can show them our available properties.
The most important step is to make sure the property is rent ready. We want all of our properties to look like model homes. This is essential when you want to attract the best tenants. This starts from the moment you approach the property or drive up to the home. The landscaping must be clean and
neat, and you have to make sure there are no flyers or other debris in the yard. When you open the front door, the space should be properly climate controlled, and all of the utilities should be turned on. Everything has to look immaculate. That’s the key to
finding and securing great tenants; present them with a home that looks like a place they would want to live.
This is what we do to find great tenants in Las Vegas. We suggest you do the same, and if you have any questions about our process, please contact us at Ravago Group Property Management, and we’d be happy to help you.
