Call Me Crazy...I will work your renter leads

By
Real Estate Agent with Urman Enterprises, LLC SA640245000

 

Attention West Valley Arizona agents who have rental properties...

Do you receive leads daily from your rental listings but you don't have time to work them and get them placed into your homes? And you don't have an agent in your office that is willing to take them?

I have made a living for the past year working with renter leads. I have placed many clients into rentals since last October. I currently assist 2 different agents from different offices right now by handling their leads they receive daily from all different sources. I get their homes rented quicker and they look good in the eyes of their investor clients. I have built relationships with these agents and I understand their application process. I can do this for you too.

Feel free to contact me at 623-237-0973 or peakproducer7@gmail.com if you can use some help with your renter leads.

Good for you. I show rentals that don't have a seller-paid commission and collect a fee from my client.

Good Morning!  You certainly have found your niche!  Most agents turn those away.

Good for you for taking rental leads! I've never understood why so many agents throw them away. They are a great way to get into the business and gain referals.

The previous company I was with did primarily rentals, so I showed them & made $$$. if they rented, I got a $50-200 fee when they moved in. The best was when I could flip a renter into a buyer, THEN I got good $$. Got pretty good at it before I left.

Renters are future buyers but the extremely low compensation offered in my area just doesn't justify my handling them.

Many people who lost their previous homes due to short sale/ foreclosure are now renting homes more than apartments providing a divorce was not involved. These people are now buying homes but the LO needs to get them early and prepare them to buy using FHA.  Work this and watch your list grow and you have plenty of time to build a relationship and get them to fit in the box.

Good perspective on the renters-one time they may become buyers and you will be glad that you stayed in touch with them. They also may have a good impression while you served them well the first time an be glad to use your service again.

Good for you! When we hire new agents, I tell them the fastest way to make money is to work rental leads. There are many rentals, and most pay between $300 and $1000 in our area.

Renters are like buyers. I try to pre-qualify over the phone. If the rent per month is more than 25-30% of their income we go from there. Also if they are going to have a roommate they need to consider if they can afford with out the room mates. Many are turned down because of that.

I have had renters intending to lease again  and end up buying.

Liane,

When I was a TC in Victorville, CA-the management companies did not pay a commission or referral fee when you placed a tenant so none of the agents worked with renters. I'm not sure if that has changed. You are in Riverside County-is the norm to be paid on a rental?

I earn on average about $2000 a month in rental commissions. I work primarily with 2 offices and I have my own leads from my referral base.

It pays the bills every month. I can't complain.

I sure could have used you during our turnover months this summer, only two to fill now and hopefully they will be filled soon.

Unfortunately there are a lot of agents that don't pay on rentals and that stopped me from even showing them.  I have even had a $25 fee for a $2000 rental, boy that made me happy.  I have had several that actually forgot to pay and had to be reminded several times.  Property Mangaers pay attention, I am not the only one that feels this way.

Dear Janelle,

Quite the interesting way to build a business. I work with renters, but do not specialize in them. Out of every ten renters or so, I usually get one buyer within three years. If you work a lot of them, you will eventually build a pretty good buyer business too.

Janelle, with the high price of leases today, one can make some serious money on a few leases a month.
