During the initial meeting, we will meet you at your home for a walk through to understand your needs as a client and this would help gauge the overall condition of the home to determine what is needed for it to be move-in ready if you were to decide to work with us. You will also be provided a Comparable Market Analysis (CMA) so you are well versed in what your home could rent for in your specific location. This service is provided FREE with no obligation to commit to our services!
Professional Pictures and Ad Creation
Once we have you on board with our Leasing services, we will then coordinate a photo shoot of the home that includes professional, HD quality pictures from our in-house photographer (check out our work for other clients on our Instagram page, @paytons.place) with the goal of ensuring your home is advertised in its best light to maximize the demand of prospective renters.
We will also create a comprehensive description of the home, including its interior and exterior features along with surrounding neighborhood and community highlights to be used for your online ad.
With the combination of pictures and ad description, we will market your home among numerous rental sites to ensure your home receives optimum exposure. In addition, we have strong alliances with the military so we will market your home within their network, as well as sites like Zillow, Trulia, Hot Pads, as well as the best site of them all…..www.paytonsplacerealestate.com!
Once the advertising is active and begins to generate demand, we are trained to manage any and all leads of prospective tenants that may arise. We maximize every lead to make sure they are generated into as many showings as possible. We make sure we are well versed about the home and its neighborhood as this is vital in securing the best tenant possible.
Quality Tenant Screening
The heart of our business! This is the most important aspect of what we do and what sets us apart from the rest. Once we receive interest from a prospective tenant, we send them to our website to conveniently apply online. Our application process thoroughly analyzes their credit history, criminal background, rental history and employment verification. In addition, we take it a step forward by following up with prior landlords and employment references. This way we ensure that we are finding you a tenant of the utmost quality. One that not only pays but also keeps your home in great care. This lowers the possibility of eviction and tenant damages to the home. Make sure to ask us about our Tenant Warranty.
*our Quality Tenant Screening process is done in compliance with all state and federal housing laws.
You’ve found your tenant! Once a tenant is approved, we make sure that all documents are accurately drafted and organized to ensure the protection of our clients. All leases are reviewed by real estate and legal professionals and are up to date with the always-changing Landlord-Tenant laws in DC, Maryland, and Virginia.
Market Ready Turnover
Now that the tenant is secured and the lease is drafted, our focus shifts to ensuring the home is move-in-ready. Most clients aren’t prepared for what goes into getting your home move-in-ready for a new tenant, but that’s what you have Payton’s Place for. We will inspect the home to make sure all the features of the home operate as they should and provide a detailed plan for the owner should there be any needed work to get the home in optimum shape. Our contractors complete such work and ensure your tenant moves in with a great first impression.
