As an owner, your goal is to rent your property for the most amount of money in the least amount of time. Rentals that fail to be properly prepared result in less traffic, fewer prospects, more time on the market, and a lower rental amount. In fact, they may not even rent at all. At Lacy Management, we require all homes we manage to meet our 'Rent-Ready' Requirements.
Our team works with owners to ensure their property is 100% Rent Ready! Starting with an initial property inspection, our team addresses necessary or required items in need of repair prior to listing. Plus, point out additional items that should be addressed to maximize rental potential.
Prior to marketing your home, our team conducts property walk-through to assess the condition, and what it takes to make it Rent Ready; a comprehensive inspection inside and out focused on identifying any required or recommended repairs needing to be remedied. This important step helps your property rent faster while ensuring new tenants are satisfied and problem free once they move into their new home.
Repair & Improve
Any known or discovered defects unearthed during the assessment will be properly repaired by our experienced technicians. Additionally, technicians will go through a 50 point checklist to make sure home is ready and tenant be free of issues from day one of move-in.
Improving your home is right way to Maximize rent potential. Here are few improvements to consider:
Repaint with Neutral Colors
Update Hardware & Fixtures
Install fans with light fixtures in all rooms
Replace existing bulbs with energy efficient LED bulbs
Install Renter Friendly Blinds
Install Energy Efficient Stainless Steel Appliances
Replace dated or worn Counter-tops
Install maintenance free laminate plank vinyl floors
Replace worn out carpet
Provide Washer and Dryer
Install deadbolts on entry doors for tenant safety
Today’s renters have high standards and value cleanliness more than ever. Make your property SHINE to attract quality tenants and rent quickly. We have partnered with several local cleaning companies specialized in preparing rental properties for the market and new tenants.
Add Curb Appeal
Lastly, remember to spruce up the exterior of your home.
Homes with curb appeal Rent FASTER and for MORE MONEY.
Renters see the outside of a home online in pictures, when they arrive for a tour, and when they drive by. An inviting exterior will ultimately attract more traffic both online and in person.
Budget exterior cleaning and landscaping into your initial budget. Failing to do so will eventually cost you! Plus, adding curb appeal does not have to break the bank.
Determine Rental Price
Once we inspect your property and all required and necessary repairs have been completed, our market experts will conduct a final market analysis. Rate is determined based on Location, Size, Condition and the Current Market.
Our goal is make sure your home rents QUICKLY and at the Best Rate possible. With careful preparations and our experts tracking local market conditions, we guarantee we can rent your home in 30 Days or LESS!
