WHY LIST YOUR PROPERTY WITH US?

Because we offer so much more than a yard sign and craigslist ad!

 

INTERNET MARKETING

Your listing will be posted on our website * Attractive flyer with photos is posted on craigslist and six other real estate search sites. * Complete listing information posted on realtor.com and austinhomesearch.com.

 

CO-BROKERING  

Your listing is promptly posted in the MLS - offering to split commission with 7,000 licensed realtors in the area. 

 

MANY CONTACTS  

Referrals and repeat business - Broker has been active in leasing and management since 1985 – that’s a lot of name recognition and a lot of long term clients, contacts, and their referrals - this means more effective marketing of property because that’s what we spend our days doing, 7 days a week! 

 

DIRECT FLYERS  

Flyers at all our listings have information on all our other listings as well. 

 

E-MAIL NEWSLETTER  

Company email newsletter goes out to 600 clients every month, with all our listings.

 

YARD SIGN WITH INFORMATION AT THE PROPERTY 

Our eye catching signs have been around since the 1980’s - there is a lot of name recognition in that - and the “take one” tube is always stocked with fliers, so the information is available right then and there.

 

QUICK RESPONSE  

This is what we do, and we do it 7 days a week. If a potential renter calls us from the property, someone is available to show it immediately, so valuable leads are not lost! Brokers cell phone is on 24-7 and call backs on missed calls are prompt and courteous.

 

PRICING IT RIGHT  

We have the knowledge of the market needed, and do the research - to price your listing right, so it rents faster and for the best price possible - leaving you with less down time, in fact, most of the time if we are given a listing what the tenant turns in their 30 days notice, we can have your next tenant lined up before the old one moves out! 

 

TENANT SCREENING  

We run a full background check on all prospective tenants, which includes not only a credit check and rental and work references, but also a criminal background check- tenants are subject to your approval! 

 

MOVE-IN AND MOVE-OUT WALK THROUGH INSPECTIONS 

We do a thorough move-in inspection when the tenant gets their keys - in writing, and the tenant signs it. We also do a move-out inspection when your tenant leaves, to help determine the appropriate deposit refund. This is done in writing and signed by the tenant to help minimize deposit refund disputes. 

 

LEASE RENEWALS  

We will write the lease renewal for a flat fee of $200. If the tenant gives 30-days notice, we can put it on the market right away so you don’t lose rent between tenants! We will also perform a walk-through inspection, completing a move-in inventory sheet, for an additional $50 fee. 

 

THE RIGHT CONTRACT FORMS FOR YOUR PROTECTION 

As members of the Austin Board of Realtors, we use the latest promulgated forms - these lease forms and addendums cover every “what if” and protects your interests! 

 

REPUTATION 

Welcome Home Leasing has a sterling reputation in the business and among the public – since the mid 1980s,  there has not been one complaint against this broker to the Better Business Bureau, The Board of Realtors or the Texas Real Estate Commission, nor have we been called in to mediation by any clients, OR had a lawsuit filed against us!! 

 

FASTER TURNAROUND TIME - LESS MISSED RENT 

Since we will begin to show the property by appointment, once the 30-days notice is given, we usually transition from one tenant to the next with little or no "downtime". We have the tools to market your property with maximum effectiveness and efficiency - why worry? Turn it over to the pros and Welcome Home Leasing! 

 

KEEPING YOU INFORMED OF MARKET CONDITIONS – RENTAL AND SALES VALUES 

The service we provide doesn’t stop when we get our commission - Six weeks before the lease expires, we contact you and the tenant regarding lease renewal. We do a market analysis of comparable rentals in the area and inform you of what the market will bear for the lease renewal. Also, since we have a sales branch, Austin Rock City Realty, we can periodically run market analysis on the sales value so you can determine when is the right time to sell - and of course, we can sell it for you too! We are truly a one-stop shop for your real estate needs!
