It’s Time to Start Marketing Your Rental Property

Posted on January 19, 2022 by pmtadmin

If you own a rental property in Toronto, you can make a lot of passive income by capitalizing on the housing shortage and affordability crisis gripping the city during a pandemic. But you may need help marketing the home, and that’s something where professional property managers excel.

The Ontario government has just ended its rent freeze, meaning monthly rental prices are once more surging. If you portray your property in the right way and in the right places, you can get a higher monthly rent. That’s where Property Management Toronto comes in, offering you the benefit of years of professional real estate experience in Toronto and the GTA.

Let’s take a look at some of the various services that can help improve how your investment property is marketed and overseen.

Marketing

There’s a vast difference between posting a few basic photos of your home and having professional real estate marketing oversee this crucial aspect of investing. Property Management Toronto knows how to help your investment home put its best foot forward with professional photographers who make your property look attractive.

Professional photographers quite literally cast the best light possible on your home! The staging process is crucial. You don’t want your home to look too busy, and we know how to shoot it in such a way that the people seeing it can envision what your home will look like when they live in it.

Our connections to glossy magazines like Toronto Life will help you invest in Ontario’s booming real estate market, so your home gets maximum exposure. We also have vast online networks in addition to print magazines, ensuring your property gets the right digital exposure too.

Having investment properties in Toronto can be extremely profitable, and you don’t even need to do much or have any real estate expertise when you opt for our turnkey services. After years of working in real estate in Toronto and the GTA, we know what features of a home to emphasize in the marketing material and which to soften deftly because we know the market.

Property owners tend to have understandable emotional attachments to their homes that may not fully coincide with how today’s market sees and values the property. By working with experienced realtors, you can fully and effortlessly.

Landlord Services

After we have photographed your home and splashed it optimally on all our channels, there’s a lot Property Management Toronto can do for your investment. Many first-time and even seasoned investors wonder how to write a rental lease agreement that has them covered and works for all parties.

You don’t want to go it alone and get locked into an agreement that doesn’t give you ample protection and peace of mind. For example, a generic lease agreement won’t cover the specifics of your property. If you have a shed in the backyard of a three-storey home, which tenant, if any, gets use of it?

If your property comes fully or partially furnished, it needs to be outlined in print, or a tenant may claim something you own on the way out. Crucial aspects of renting like payment method and costs for utilities also need to be factored in.

Experienced Help from Tenant Selection, Maintenance, to Ongoing Relations

Being a landlord entails taking on a fair amount of responsibility and risk, and a mistake early in the process can be costly. What if you lock in a bad tenant who doesn’t respect your home or pay their bills on time?

What if the tenant is great, but being a landlord consumes more time than you have? Property Management Toronto helps to solve these common landlord challenges and any other you may have.

For example, our four-step tenant selection process requires sifting through employment letters, credit checks, reference checks, and tenant applications. You can sit back relaxed, knowing that the person who lives in your property is a responsible, mature tenant who will turn it into their home.
