Leasing Your Charleston Rental Property to Outstanding Tenants

When you work with Charleston Home Rentals, you can count on a smooth leasing process that results in more rental income, less vacancy time, and a better-qualified tenant.

We start with an evaluation of your home and its competition. We’ll advise you on a realistic rental price, and lease your property quickly. We’ll strategically market your home, show the property to pre-qualified tenants, and then collect applications and conduct tenant screenings.

Our screening process includes the essential steps of obtaining 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.

What does this mean for you? It 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.

Managing and Maintaining your Charleston Rental Property

Move-in inspections, move-out inspections, rent collection, maintenance, repairs, lease enforcement – it’s all taken care of by your experienced management team at Charleston Home Rentals.

Free Rental Analysis

Pricing your property is one of the things we do best. We know the Charleston market well, and whether your home is Downtown Charleston, North Charleston, or somewhere else in and around the city, we know the market and we know the tenants.

Our pricing analysis considers your home’s location, condition, size, and availability. We also consider what good tenants are willing to pay. The result is a reliable and competitive rental price that earns you higher ROI.

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.
