Here’s what you get from LeaseGR
LeaseGR advertises your rental property on key Internet sites, as well as LeaseGR.com, which averages hundreds of hits a day. Our phone rings early and often with inquiries from people who are looking for a rental home in the Grand Rapids area.
2. Tenant Screening
Our screening process includes credit reports, income verification, rental history, and criminal background checks. Thoroughness up front reduces problems down the road. You don’t want just any tenant. You want the right tenant. So do we.
3. Leasing and Showings
LeaseGR can get your rental property ready for leasing, then set up showings with prospects who meet your standards. Prospects never visit your property on their own. One of our leasing agents is always on hand to point out key features and answer questions.
4. Lease Execution
LeaseGR presents and explains all required documents to your new tenant before move-in. There could be a dozen or more—the lease, a move-in checklist, addendums, disclosures … whatever applies. We also confirm that utilities have been transferred to your tenant before handing over the keys.
5. Rent Collection
Real estate is a better investment when tenants pay their rent, so this is a priority. It starts with landing a solid tenant in the first place. If there’s ever a payment delay, LeaseGR follows up promptly and professionally.
6. 24-Hour Maintenance
Our maintenance staff handles most issues. When using maintenance pros who aren’t on staff, we don’t mark up their invoices—you pay what LeaseGR pays. Your tenants will have a 24-hour hotline for after-hours maintenance calls, so your rental property is always covered.
7. Accounting and Bill Payment
You’ll receive a monthly financial statement and year-end summary, so you’ll always know where you stand. LeaseGR uses web-based software called AppFolio—the best in the business.
8. Renewals and Releasing
LeaseGR deals with renewals 30-60 days before the end of a lease, increasing rent if the market warrants. If your property becomes vacant, it will be ready for releasing within a week.
9. Legal Proceedings
In the rare event that it becomes necessary to take a tenant to court, LeaseGR will work with an attorney and keep you advised. If you’re owed back rent, we can garnish paychecks and state tax refunds on your behalf.
Some municipalities require inspections of rental properties. If yours does, LeaseGR will see to it. We also conduct periodic inspections of our own to be sure everything is in order.
11. Tenant Relations
Simply put, tenants like us. That’s not always the case in this business. Maintaining good relations with tenants results in long-term residents for LeaseGR properties.
12. Peace of Mind
Which, of course, is all that really matters.
