Are You Highlighting Your Las Vegas Rental Properties Most Sellable Features?

By GoldenWest Management

LAS VEGAS, NV. – Are you still managing your Las Vegas Rental Properties yourself? If so, one of the keys to success in attracting quality tenants is to market your rentals most “sellable” features.

Prospective tenants are always searching for listings based on the features of a rental property and you can make your listing stand out by highlighting the following.

  • Size – How many bedrooms and bathrooms does your rental property offer?
  • Storage – Does your rental have an attached garage or on-site storage facility?
  • Location – Is your Las Vegas rental property conveniently close to the best entertainment venues, stores, shops, schools and recreation destinations in Las Vegas?
  • Amenities – What amenities can you offer your tenants? Some of the most common include an onsite pool/spa, workout room, or on-site laundry facility.
  • Yard space – Is there a yard space at your rental property?
  • Move-in Incentives – Do you offer one-month free rent or paid water/sewer/trash?
  • Area statistics – Another great way to market your Las Vegas rental property online is to highlight area statistics especially if your rental is in a walkable neighborhood or if it’s close to some of the best restaurants listed on Yelp.

How to Market Your Rentals Most Sellable Features

Once you have determined the best features that your Las Vegas Rental Property has to offer prospective tenants the next step is to professionally market it online using the following:

  • High-Resolution Photos – These will help your rental to stand out over Las Vegas rentals that may be listed online but before taking high-resolution photos you should de-clutter your rental property and make sure that it’s been professionally cleaned since you don’t want dirt or debris to stand out in the photos.
  • Videos – Posting a video walkthrough of your rental property on websites like youtube.com will also help your rental attract interest from the most tenants as possible since a video walkthrough will help a prospective tenant to feel like they “know” your rental property before they’ve actually visited it.

How Often Should You Have Your Rental Property Inspected?

By GoldenWest Management

One of the most common questions that most owners want to know these days is how often they should have their rental properties inspected because some property management companies will inspect rentals every six months, while other companies will never inspect the rental while it’s occupied.

The answer to how often you should have your rental inspected ultimately depends on your own personal preferences but we’ve compiled a list of factors for you to consider when thinking about how often you should have your rental inspected.

Does Your Home Have a Basement or Crawlspace?

If your rental property has a basement or crawlspace you may want to have your rental property inspected every 3 years, or each time before your rental is vacant, because this will give you the opportunity to confirm that any wiring or plumbing under your rental property is still in good condition.

Has Your Rental Been Through Extreme Weather?

Do you own a rental property in an area of the United States that’s prone to extreme weather? If so, you may want to have your rental inspected at your next opportunity because, heavy snow or rain can cause damage to a rental property that you may not be aware of.

Just Bought Your Rental Property but Never Inspected It?

Have you recently bought a new rental property but never had it inspected? In this case, it would be a smart move to have your rental thoroughly inspected just to avoid any potential problems that you may not be aware of.

Planning A Major Renovation?

Are you planning a major renovation? If so, you should still have your rental property inspected anyway because this will save you the hassle of finding out about other problems in your rental home after work has started.

Tips for Getting Your San Diego Rental Ready for Summer

By GoldenWest Management

SAN DIEGO, CA – Summer is almost here and with warmer weather you should also be focusing on getting your rental property ready for the summer months by doing the following.

Inspect Your Air Conditioner

This step is essential because it’s possible that your air conditioner hasn’t been in use for close to one year so you should change your air filter, airflow inside your rental property and also your blower unit as well.

Once you’ve inspected your air conditioner you should also make sure that the unit has “room to breathe” outside your home by clearing space around the unit by removing grass, plants or debris.

Prepare Windows and Doors for Summer

Since your tenants may be using the air conditioner a lot during the summer months you should prepare doors and windows by making sure that their seals will still hold the cold air in your rental property and not easily escape.

Clean Your Dryer Vent

After checking your air conditioner, doors and windows you should also check your dryer vent to make sure that it’s completely free of dust or lint since obstructions in the dryer vent can easily lead to fires.

Test Smoke Detectors

Summer is also a great time to test the smoke detectors in your rental property as well to make sure they are working properly and don’t have batteries that need to be replaced.

Clean Ceiling Fans

Besides removing dust from ceiling fan blades, you should also vacuum dust from the ceiling fan motor because this will help it to continue functioning normally for the remainder of the year.

Clean Up Your Yard

Last of all, but most important, you should also clean up the yard at you San Diego rental property by planting new flowers (if needed), inspecting the sprinkler system and reviewing the yard to make sure that your current tenants are keeping up the curb appeal of your rental property.

For Rent San Diego – 5 Things Every New Owner Should Know About Renters Rights

By GoldenWest Management

So, you purchased your first rental property and after remodeling, you’re finally getting ready to list it for rent San Diego but, before you make the jump to the full-fledged owner there are some things about renter’s rights that you should know if you want to manage your rental property yourself.

#1 – What Can You Charge a Tenant If They Pay Their Rent Late?

In California, you can charge between 5-10% of your tenants rent as the penalty for them paying their rent late but to avoid any confusion or “sticker shock” when your tenant pays their rent late, you should clearly list in your lease what your tenant can expect to pay if they do end up paying their rent late.

#2 – Multiple Checks

The Landlord does have the right to refuse payment using multiple checks do to California’s partial payment acceptance rules. Example, if one check clears and one check bounces, the landlord cannot evict during that calendar month that the partial payment was made. Therefore, the courts have conveyed the right to the Landlord to not accept multiple checks for rental payment.

#3 – When Can You Enter Your Rental?

Once your rental is occupied by the tenant you have to follow the law and give them 24-hour notice that you will be coming over to make repairs or show the property to potential renters if it’s going to be available for rent soon.

Contrary to what some people may have told you, you cannot enter your rental property at will, unless of course, the tenant has abandoned your rental, or there’s very obvious emergency there that requires your attention.

#4 – Security Deposit

If you’re renting an unfurnished unit you can’t charge more than two months’ rent for your security deposit and as for a fully furnished apartment, you can’t charge more than three months’ rent.

#5 – Security Deposit Return

Another huge topic that’s talked about online is the security deposit return; as the owner of a property for rent San Diego you have 21 days to return the security deposit with a letter detailing your withholdings.
