I Said Before – Rental Market Is Hot – If You’re Thinking of Moving…?

Start your search early…!

The ladies at the office have been bombarded with inquiries about our current inventory.   When those making the inquiries are told we’ve already had an “accepted/approved application” you can sometimes hear the dismay in their voices.

This is not something new,  because I have written about this before.

The reason we’re having this problem is there has not been a significant increase in the housing supply and with the increased demand because of an improving economy and the creation of more families, it’s kind of hard now,  to find the “right place”.

So here’s a couple of tips:

  • Before you give notice to your current landlord, start scouting areas you are interested in.
  • Get financials together – most management companies are going to want a credit report, copies of your pay check stubs and if you’re self employed we’ll want copies of bank statements and tax returns.   It’s almost the same process as buying a home, which by the way is actually cheaper then renting.   Get it all together in advance because chances are you’ll not be the only folks applying for the same rental.   It’s first come, first served with most management companies.
  • Be prepared to move in right away – with multiple applications, most owners will want the tenant who can move in right away versus a tenant that has to give 30 days notice.   Don’t be surprised if the Owner/Property manager doesn’t want to hold the new place for 30 days so you can do the required notice you’re moving to the existing Landlord.  If you get two weeks, be thankful.   Yes, you might be stuck paying rent on two places for a couple of weeks.  It’s just the way it is, especially if it’s a nice property.

Rental Market is Hot – Thinking of Moving…?

Better give yourself a lot of time.

I’ve been in the property management business for a long time and this current market is something to behold.  Now I’m sure you’ve seen reports on TV, articles in the local paper, blog posts from other real estate agents and even some of your own circle of friends discussing the “mulitple offers” on homes for sale.crossley

Guess what…?   Inventory in the rental market is also low.   Because of that, we’ve experienced situations on homes in some of the nicer areas with several applications for each property being submitted.

What do we do…?  Pick the best one that has been fully completed.

Since this phenomenon is not going to go away anytime soon, I suggest you start looking at least 30 days ahead of time before you’re ready to move.   You will experience the angst of having to compete for a decent rental to live in just like many frustrated home buyers facing the hurdle of “multiple offers”.

We know this is stressful because we’ve taken phone calls from people inquiring about a home that they have seen in our inventory on line after being told we’ve taken an application,  sometimes get upset and frustrated.   They’ve asked us where do they turn to find a place.   We do the best we can to advise them where to look.

If you are in this situation…?   My suggestion is for you to get all your information together so when you do go out and find a place you want to rent, you’ll have all the paper work most Property Managers are looking for.   If you wind up viewing a property that is not managed by a professional company, trust me the owner/landlord will appreciate the supporting documentation just as much.
