Charleston Leasing and Tenant Screening

A successful and profitable investment experience begins with an effective leasing process. When you work with Charleston Home Rentals, you can count on efficiency – a smooth leasing process that results in more rental income, less vacancy time, and a better-qualified tenant.

Leasing is about much more than simply finding a well-qualified resident. It’s about making sure your home is in rent-ready condition and attaching a price to it that reflects its market value.

Rental Property Marketing Reduces Vacancy

Our marketing plan is broad, intentional, and designed to attract as many potential residents to your property as possible. We’ve innovated our process with a lot of technology that includes self-showings, data collection, and security. Inviting pre-qualified tenants to your property is easier than ever, and we’re available and responsive when it comes to answering questions and following up with applications.

Before the marketing, however, we make sure the home is ready to be viewed. We start with an evaluation of your home and its competition. We’ll talk about any upgrades or updates that might help you be more competitive in a crowded market. Then, we’ll advise you on a realistic rental price that reflects the current rental values in the market.

This results in a fast leasing process, fewer vacancy days, and more rental income.

Tenant Screening Protects Your Investment

Tenant screening seems like it should be easy, but it’s more than collecting a credit report and running a background check.

We’re looking for responsible, reliable residents who we know will pay rent on time and take good care of your property. We want tenants who understand the importance of following a lease agreement and communicating quickly about maintenance needs.

Our screening process includes the essential steps of obtaining a direct credit score, confirming no previous evictions, and confirming no previous criminal history. We also:

  • Verify employment and income directly with employers.

  • Check rental history and talk to former landlords, asking about payment history and property damage.

  • Look for prior evictions or debts owed to former landlords, managers, or communities.

In addition to screening rigorously and fairly, we’re also consistent and legally compliant. We follow all state, federal, and local fair housing laws.

All of the attention we pay to leasing and screening means you don’t have to worry about the person living in your property. You don’t have to pinch pennies to pay for a longer-than-expected vacancy period. It means you can rest easy knowing there’s a responsible, well-qualified tenant living in your rental property and helping you take care of it.

It has truly been a pleasure to deal the folks at Charleston Home Rentals. I was having trouble renting my unit until I was introduced to them, and since I have partnered with them, I have not had a problem keeping my town house rented. I would recommend them to my friends. It is well worth the money to have the piece of mind that they offer by keeping my unit rented and screening the renters before they put them into my town home.
