Finding a great tenant is one of the most important things you will do as a landlord, so we are using today’s blog to talk about three simple ways to find the best possible tenant in Atlanta.
Know Your Property
When you’re doing your tenant search, it’s helpful to know your property and understand the neighborhood in which your rental home is located. This allows you to really know the market you’re appealing to.
For example, if your house is located in Atlanta’s Grant Park community, get to know what’s available in the area and what will appeal to renters who want to live in Grant Park. One of the primary things that will help your investment is to run an ad in that specific area. In Grant Park, people are internet savvy and they’ll go online to find information on rentals. So, post an ad on Craigslist that’s targeted to Grant Park.
Partner with a Realtor who knows the area. If you offer to pay a referral fee or a commission to real estate agents who have clients looking for a home in Grant Park, you’ll get a lot more visibility for your rental property.
High Quality Advertising
Finally, make sure you take great high quality photos and provide a video walk through in your ad if you can. Create a mini website for your house so you can share information readily. Lots of people make their decisions before they even go to see the property. The more information you can provide them before they arrive, the better off you will be.
If you know the area, create a great advertisement and work with a Realtor, you’ll have a better chance of finding the best tenant for your Atlanta property. If you have any questions about this, or you need help finding a tenant, please contact us at EW Capital Management.
