At 5:00 p.m, I received a call from a new client that had signed up on my website only moments before. I was in the process of sending them our rental questionnaire and I hadn't had time to hit send when my phone was ringing.
“Hello! This is Kate.”
“Yes hi. I know this is strange, but my husband is outside a home now. Can you tell me if it's available?”
“Sure. What is the address?”
After finding the home was available and vacant, they asked if I could meet them there.
Normally our schedules don't allow us to meet people the same day, but I was available. After some more questions to determine their motivation, I decided to head over.
In the time it took me to drive to the home (about 15 minutes), 2 other agents and their clients had toured the home while my client waited patiently. We had paperwork completed online, documentation ready, and submitted it on the spot.
The next morning, my clients had the house.
It is first come, first served in this real estate rental market. According to CNN Money, Las Vegas was just named one of the “Top 10 Cities People are Moving To.” There is stiff competition and the good homes go quickly. If it is clean, has a great layout or upgrades, and is in a desirable area, be prepared to work efficiently. The sooner you move ON a home, the sooner you can move INTO it!
Many agents use rental placement as a fill in to their real estate business, often times turning down tenants as clients or giving minimal help in the search for a rental home. We at the Shay Hasselmann Group actively look for rental clients and use a streamlined process that helps you move into your ideal rental home. In this sense, we are revolutionary in the real estate rental business.
The first step to finding the perfect property is to fill out our short rental questionnaire. This will give us criteria to create a custom MLS search and will send updates daily. When you see homes that interest you, make a list of the top homes which meet your must-haves including dimensions, amenities, and neighborhood. After the research phase, and neighborhood visits, the Shay Hasselmann Group will help you gather and prepare necessary documents, set up appointments, and close the deal once you find your new home.
Along the way, we will clarify any and all details to make it a smooth transaction. Feel free to ask any questions you may have so they can be sorted out ahead of time.
Be sure your agent communicates with the listing agent. I can't stress how important putting a voice to the application is. Sometimes a little relationship building goes a long way.
The real estate market may be competitive and it may be stressful to move - we understand that. The more prepared you are, the easier the process will be. When you find “the one,” you know.
