Why List Your Rental With An Agent?
Listing your rental property with an Ottawa real estate agent like myself benefits you
Listing your rental property with an Ottawa real estate agent like myself benefits you in two ways: By ensuring that your marketing is attracting desirable tenants and tenants working with other agents and by ensuring that you are as secure with your rental and in your rental contract as legally allowed by the Landlord-Tenant Board.
As your agent I look after:
Marketing: marketing is entirely covered in the cost of working with an agent.
Showings: You do not need to be at the property to show it to potential renters. Other agents will show the property to their own clients and they are covered by real estate insurance and interested renters who are not working with an agent will be showed the property buy the listing agent or someone form the listing agents brokerage.
Paperwork: Although you still control the lease that is used to sign a tenant I will have a copy of a lawyer written sample lease and additional leases if you require.
Information: In addition to the information that I bring as a Realtor? and the knowledge that I have of the Landlord-Tenant Board I also have legal information provided by lawyers and a plethora of legal professionals that I can refer to assist you along you way.
Quality of Tenants: The tenants that are working with a Realtor? have the added advantage of coming to us prescreened by their agents. A Realtor? will not waste their time or soil their reputation working with a bad tenant as they require the trust of other agents to do their job daily.
Scam Prevention: Background checks and credit checks are preformed on anyone submitting an application to rent your property.
Property Management Options: If you decide that you would like to have someone else manage your rental property I would be happy to discuss it with you or refer you to a property manager I trust.
If you have a property that you are considering renting with an agent I would be happy to discuss the benefits and the costs associated. Rental Contact Form
