KANSAS CITY TIMELINE FOR RENTING HOMES
The Kansas City timeline for renting homes can vary depending on a variety of factors. The obvious components come to mind first; rent, location, and amenities. Most people are sensitive to pricing on everything from the price they will pay for milk to the monthly rent they are willing to spend on a home. The following information is designed to help you understand the Kansas City timeline for renting homes.
PREPARING YOUR PROPERTY FOR THE MARKET
Price sensitivity is often weighed against location and amenities. Location relative to shopping, schools, dining, recreation, and more can raise or decrease the amount of rent someone is willing to pay for a particular property. Once someone has narrowed down the general area they would like to live they will certainly turn their attention to the amenities a particular property offers. For example, updated kitchens with nice appliances, flooring, and storage will appeal well to many people. Updated bathrooms will also add to the excitement or “wow” factor of a house and further accelerate the Kansas City timeline for renting homes. Clean painted walls with no holes, clean carpet, or hardwood in good shape will also help the property appeal to renters.
Of course new appliances, flooring, fixtures, and more are not always needed to rent a property. Simply look to the market to consider whether or not upgrades are required in your area. Generally speaking clean, well-kept units will rent for market rate with relative ease keeping you on track with the Kansas City timeline for renting homes.
BE PATIENT WITH THE PROCESS
Additionally, tenants with section 8 packets can take a little longer than a market rate tenant to process. There is simply a bit more paperwork while working with the section 8 office. Both types of tenants can be great people to have in your property you just need to be patient with the process.
BRING A TRUSTED PARTNER
Several management companies advertise “no deposit”, “bad credit OK”, “lease option with no qualifying”, or “no rent payment for 30 days”. At Premiere Property, LLC we believe that renting to an unqualified tenant is nearly always a mistake and extends the Kansas City timeline for renting homes. Fees resulting from potential evictions or costs from new repairs to a property can become excessive quickly. We encourage high qualifying standards for tenants with a market rate set to rent the property within 30 days. Because of the distinctiveness of each home, we will work up a free rental market analysis for your properties. Visit our contact page and give us an opportunity to earn your business.
