How to Successfully Show Your Sacramento Rental Homes


If you're looking to lease out your Sacramento rental properties, but may not be sure exactly how to present your rental space to prospective renters, read on for some valuable tips to help guide you on your way to a steady monthly income.


Before you even meet your prospective tenant, it is important that you make a good impression as an approachable, communicative landlord. Apartment-seekers want to know that they won't have to struggle to get a hold of you in the event of problems or issues that may arise with the home.


When you do meet to show prospective renters your Sacramento rental properties, don't go in blind. Check in on the space beforehand and make sure the apartment or house is in good working order. Do the heater and air conditioner work? Are there working light bulbs in the light fixtures? Are all the faucets and other fixtures fully functioning? Is the home itself and any surrounding property clean and free of trash and the last tenant's belongings? It is important to present a functional, clean living space, or you will have a hard time finding a quality tenant.


Lastly, don't forget to bring applications and the answers to any reasonable questions that may arise. Are pets allowed? What utilities are the tenants responsible for? What day is trash day, and where are the trash and recycling bins located? When is rent due, and is there a late fee? Be prepared, and you'll be on your way to reaping the rewards of your investment!
