10 Steps to Faster Leasing a Rental Property

When you own a rental property and your tenant moves out, it is money lost. In fact without a strong marketing plan, an average vacancy can last from 2-3 months which is quite a bite out of your bottom line. Too often you find real property owners managing their property but due to their of experience and skill to rent out the property, they end up with vacant houses for an unnecessary periods of time.

As the nationwide leader in local property management for Westside and South Bay Los Angeles, Real Property Management Choice has developed a leasing process that has proved to shorten vacancies and increase rental income by finding reliable tenants more quickly. Below is a step by step process of the leasing process.
