RENTING YOUR MIAMI PROPERTY
Finding the best tenants in the shortest amount of time!
FROM MIAMI TO FT. LAUDERDALE! List your rental home with us!
#1 I have a property to rent! What do I do?
We make it easy for you. We will view the property and do the Miami Rental Market Analysis research. We will offer rental suggestions to prepare your property to rent, and help you determine the best Miami rental asking price. The Harriet Martin team will list your Miami property for rent on the MLS system available to all real estate agents. But unlike most Realtors… our rental marketing doesn’t stop there! Our superior promotion bars none. Immediately we begin our Internet marketing to 25 of the top real estate websites plus print advertising, direct mailings and more. Price is important! Priced properly, and with our extensive marketing system, we find tenants quickly. Listen to us! We know the rental real estate market!
#2 How do I prepare the property for rent?
We can guide you through the most strategic needed. We will "walk through" your home and make suggestions such as painting, carpet cleaning or replacement and general overall cleaning. Curb appeal is important. Check your mailbox, front door and landscaping to update if necessary. Renting property is a business. Every penny counts! We can guide you in making good business decisions… we know what it takes to find the best tenants!
#3 Who pays for your services?
The Landlord pays commission once the property is rented. Our services are free to the tenants, so naturally, we have tenants on waiting lists. We know your concerns and work quickly to find a tenant so your property does not remain vacant. Time is money!
#4 What do you do when a potential tenant makes an offer?
We will run a credit check on the tenants (at their expense) and ask them to supply references of work history, rental history, prior Landlord information and personal references. We will verify the information BEFORE presentation to you. This way we do not waste time and know the circumstances of the tenants to discuss with you.
#5 Who prepares the lease?
We can prepare the lease using our National Association or Realtors' lease, the owner may prepare their own lease, or we use our extensive management lease which is only available to our management clients. We can show these leases to you to review. You can be sure we will include all disclosures and documentation that is required by the State of Florida for all rentals.
#6 What deposits do you collect with the lease?
We collect 1 month’s rent pus 2 months of security deposit for greater protection for the Landlord. Our lease terms are for one year or longer.
#7 How does property management work?
Once your property is rented, our Miami property Management department will set up an account for you. You will receive statements noting rents collected and any repair costs needed. Miami Property Management takes the worry from you. They work with the Landlord and Tenant to give good quality service. We want your tenants to renew and remain long term, ensuring the best return on your investment!
#8 What happens between tenancies?
Generally you should expect to do normal cosmetic updating such as painting, carpet cleaning and any overall cleaning & repairs. Our property management tenants are responsible for general cleaning & carpet cleaning before move-out. We will help with anything needed. Our maintenance department can do all the work for you.
#9 May I see Landlord and Tenant References?
Yes, there are several testimonials on our web site. Please see what they have to say in their own words. We are a pinnacle quality service award winning office with FORTUNE INTERNATIONAL REALTY.
