Give Me Your Rentals and Renters--I'll take 'em!

Services for Real Estate Pros with Advance Realty USA

No RentYou 'don't do rentals.' Really?  AWESOME!  Send them to me, I'm happy to take care of them for you!  :)  These are people who either by choice or by circumstance need a temporary residence.  People who are relocating will often do this while getting acclamated to a new area or before they become a first time homebuyer. And in some cases; they don't realize that they may be able to buy a home for less than the cost of rent.  Sometimes, it's a very reliable person who doesn't want to be bothered with the responsibility and expense of home ownership or has to spend a lot of time traveling for their occupation.

I think of it as an opportunity to help someone through the process of eventually becoming a homeowner and at some point referring friends and family. I rented a condo for a friend, she referred me to a neighbor whose condo I also rented, then she became a referral when she rented the place she moved to out of state, then she ultimately sold the condo. 

One 'Yes to rental'=4 paydays for me.  :)

I have heard some Realtors say 'Rentals aren't worth my time'.  If you or someone you know feels this way, PLEASE give them my name and this number; 410-529-9111; and this website;

How many listing appointments and showing requests are you going on? And your payday is at least 30 days away, right?  But you don't have time to make $500-$2000 for a showing or three in the meantime? Are you allergic to money?  I am blessed to have no such misfortune. Call me!

Rentals can be the point of contact for potential clients later on down the road but I feel that most agents don't do rentals because of the long time frame for potential business. It's just another avenue one can take but it's definitely not for everyone.
