When people think of realtors they think we buy and sell houses. Everyone forgets we can help those looking for a rental. There are many beneficial reasons working with a realtor for a rental:
1. We have access to the MLS where property management companies list their properties. You can look on Zillow or Craigslist but not all the properties will be available.
2. We can coordinate the viewings of the property. Just think it takes the burden off of you trying to reach out to different agents and companies to see properties. We can schedule a bunch of properties in 1 day.
3. Unfortunately there are a lot of scams on Craigslist and Zillow. I reached out to someone for a listing on Craigslist and they tried to scam me. Sending over an application asking for all your information. Never do that especially if it is coming from a person not a property management company. I have seen a lot of scams on Zillow where they have 1 picture of the property and actually seems legit. Working with a realtor you don't have to worry about being scammed!
4. We can help you navigate the rental market! We are the experts and can help you figure out the right location and go over the details of the property.
5. We can review your lease and make sure your rights as a renter are protected! This is huge especially those finding private landlords.
And lastly the best part is it FREE! Why not have someone in your corner and help you navigate the market to find your perfect home!
