Sand Dollar Property Management syndicates a full description, of your rental property, along with photos, daily to top Internet Listing sites such as:
....and others that we keep to ourselves for competitive reasons
Additionally, we utilize the RentalHomesPlus.com network, which provides significant additional avenues of exposure for your property listings through various media groups, including OrlandoSentinel.com, the official website of the Orlando Sentinel newspaper.
A classified ad may be placed in the rental section of The Orlando Sentinel newspaper (but only with owner's written approval, at the owner's request and their own expense). Amazingly, we generate more responses than a newspaper ad using a little known but highly effective website for advertising rentals. We have not found print ads to be effective except in special circumstances.
Our rental list, updated daily, is available free of charge to all who come to our website or into our office. We also fax or email this list to others upon request.
Available Property Flyer - We prepare a marketing flyer that includes photographs and property details on available properties every week. This flyer is placed at our office for pick up and e-mailed to local REALTORS and corporate relocation specialists. It is also available by email and fax by request, and on our website.
COOPERATION WITH OTHER OFFICES
Rental information is shared with other rental offices and Realtors to attract as many interested parties as possible.
Lockboxes are placed on all of our available properties so that all local REALTORS can show our available properties to their clients.
We pay one of the highest referral fees so that the properties WILL be shown by Realtors.
As a leader in the local real estate market, we have long standing relationships with local REALTORS and other professionals having clients in need of housing.
RAPID, BUT THOROUGH QUALIFICATION OF PROSPECTIVE TENANTS
We have a rapid, but thorough process for qualifying good tenants, and getting them to put down a deposit on your rental, quickly. We are picky, but fast. You have to be in the rental market - especially now. We want to take a good tenant off the market as soon as possible.
Our comprehensive tenant qualification process has an answer in 20 minutes and is verified with phone calls by us in no more than 2 business days. We are able to get a deposit within 30 minutes. it is fast, BUT also comprehensive
It involves a complete analysis of:
- Credit worthiness as reported by national credit bureaus, including NSF checks and fraud detection
- National criminal search that includes sex offender and terrorist database searches
- National eviction history database search
- Resident rental history including payment performance and collections
We can then phone verify as needed, such as:
- Current residency
- Previous residency for at least the last 24 months without interruption
A big part of our long-term success in meeting your investment goals comes from the way we screen tenants. However, one size doesn't always fit all. You can follow our standards that match market demands or we can configure Tenant Screening to fit your level of comfort. You determine the risk profile and set the standards for acceptance, combining:
Sand Dollar Property Management Tenant Screening supports Fair Housing compliance by setting 'rules' within our system that are enforced for all applicants, ensuring each applicant is judged fairly. Our Tenant Screening also provides Adverse Action Letters and audit trails to help document compliance.
These are the primary methods of advertising and marketing your property - we have others. Our primary edge is that we are also investors and manage our own properties. We know from experience and tracking marketing results for years what works and what does not.
