Marketing and Leasing Services for Washington, DC Rental Homes
Leasing and marketing programs that offer a lot of value and very little risk.
Limit Vacancy Time and Save Money with Locally Focused Leasing
Our thorough understanding of the local rental market in Washington, DC and its unique neighborhoods allow us to limit your vacancy time, set accurate rental values, and select high-quality tenants.
Is it really that hard to find a tenant?
Technically, no. It’s actually pretty easy to find just anyone who wants to rent your home.
The skill is in finding the right tenant – the resident who is qualified to rent your property, pay rent on time, and take care of your investment.
Marketing your Washington DC rental property to find good tenants costs money. This isn’t extra money that we charge our owners. It’s money we invest as your property managers to ensure we’re putting the best possible renter in your home.
We make it look easy. But, there’s actually a lot of time and money spent leasing and marketing your rental property to set you up for success.
Our process includes marketing and advertising, installing and monitoring self-showing lockboxes, listing your home on various rental sites, and networking with our list of preferred agents to attract a large pool of prospective tenants.
We have the screening software required to evaluate applications and we provide the expertise to meet with tenants, answer questions, and provide the move-in orientation.
Marketing and Leasing for Fewer Headaches
There’s a real danger in marketing and leasing your rental home without understanding the competing properties, the tenant trends, and the local laws and regulations that govern the process.
Do you know that six different addenda are required by law in every lease agreement you sign with every tenant?
Without a strong and legally compliant lease agreement, you can’t be guaranteed a successful tenancy.
Protect yourself and your investment property. Work with experts, like our team at Columbia Property Management. When it comes to marketing your property, we’re aggressive. When it comes to choosing a tenant, we’re rigorous. When it comes to executing the lease agreement, we’re careful.
Tenant Placement Only When You Need It
For a lot of rental property owners, leasing is the main concern when they’re renting out a home. Does this sound like you?
If so, you understand how critical it is to place a good tenant, to earn the highest possible market rents, and to negotiate and execute a lease agreement that protects you and your rental property.
At Columbia Property Management, we can get you through the leasing process and then hand the home back over to you for ongoing management and maintenance.
Our lease-only services are ideal for owners who have only one or two properties to rent out or a lot of experience with managing homes. Maybe you’ve already got a great network of preferred vendors, and you know repairs and preventative maintenance won’t be a problem.
But you know that leasing requires professionals who are experts in identifying the right tenant and setting the right rental value.
