How much will your home rent for?
Property rental tips are always a good thing to have for your first rental. It’s surprising how much is missed when there are so many things to consider when deciding on a new home. Cleveland Real Estate Pros are here to help find the right property for you. We make finding your first rental home so simple, you’ll actually have enough time to consider important factors many forget to make a smooth and stress free transition into your new place. Here are a few tips:
Consider All Costs, Do not Underestimate:
Make a budget, determine how much you can afford to spend on rent, utilities, and application fees ALONG with other monthly costs and moving costs. Do not be stingy on your estimated budget, there are always unplanned expenses that come along the way, and don’t underestimate on how much you can afford per month. Keep in mind that your standard of a home may not be in your budget.
Visit the Rental homes!
Pictures are worth 1,000 words, but seeing for yourself trumps any kind of online reviews or glamor shots of what seems to be the perfect home online. See for yourself, you’ll understand when you get there. A good rule of thumb is to research your top three properties online, read reviews, and schedule walkthroughs in each of them. Bring someone with you to help with the decision process, and ask questions!
Yes, that wrap around porch will look great with a swing, but what you NEED is a property that is closer to work. Seriously consider and separate your wants from your needs in a new rental. You’re committing a good sum of money into this investment, and you don’t want to be sitting in traffic everyday for the next year because you chose vanity over practicality. Make a list. If it fulfills ALL of your needs, it’s worth investing in, if it doesn’t then keep looking.
Persistence is Key:
Don’t become discouraged if your top picks don’t fulfill all your needs, be persistent, keep looking. If it’s down to the wire you may need to reconsider your wants and needs again. New Rentals are always here at Cleveland Real Estate Pros.
