How does finding a tenant work.
A real estate agent not only helps you to look for the right tenant, but also to achieve a good rental price. The price of a property depends on rental property supply and demand. Renting out your home begins by making an appointment with us to inspect the property. This will clarify straight away if the property can be rented out and what price bracket will be reasonable.
Before we start the search for a reliable tenant we will explain what rules are important related to leasing legislation and what you should and should not expect from tenants.
A next step in the leasing process is putting the home on the market. If you want to rent out your house quickly, it is important to have a good marketing strategy. Good presentation and maximum attention to detail are essential. We play a crucial role in this process as a leasing agent. We will generate maximum attention for your property, by having professional photos made of your property, and not just using these for well-known websites such as Funda and Pararius but also for various tenant networks.
Potential tenants can inspect the house or apartment. These visits are of course supervised by us. Any renting proposals will be discussed with you and all candidates are screened. When an agreement has been reached, all arrangements are clearly captured in a formal rental contract.
After the leases are signed and the initial payment is made, handover takes place. At this time, a digital inspection report is set up, including photos. We use Chapps for this; an advanced property status app. This specifies the condition of the property. An inventory list may also be checked. We also continue to be actively involved after the transfer by being available during the rental period for any questions or to act as broker for solving problems between the two parties.
In short, we supervise the entire rental process from A to Z.
The focal area in which we help homeowners and tenants are Amsterdam, Amstelveen, Haarlem- Amsterdam and 't Gooi. There is a high level of demand for homes in the capital of our country. Traditionally, this is where the international schools were located. Recent establishment of schools in Haarlem and 't Gooi continue to make these areas more attractive.
When someone wants to rent out their property, it may be unfurnished or furnished.
What is the difference and for which arrangement is the biggest demand?
The definition of an unfurnished home refers to a number of basic characteristics of the home. An unfurnished home will have floor coverings such as parquet or laminate flooring, carpet or floor tiles. In addition, there should be curtains or blinds installed in the house or apartment. Basic light fittings are also to be fitted in an unfurnished property as well as a washing machine and a tumble dryer if possible. Finally, the kitchen is to have fixed appliances such as a cooktop, extractor fan, a refrigerator and an oven or microwave.
The contents of a furnished home include much more than those of a decorated home. A furnished home is to include everything from cutlery to bedding. Tenants basically only need their suitcases to move into the House. The previously mentioned items for an unfurnished home should be present in a furnished home, supplemented by furniture such as lounge room furniture, TV, dining setting, bed(s), cupboards and light fittings. In addition to furniture there should also be linen, crockery and cutlery and other kitchen utensils such as pots and pans. Costs for the use of these contents are included in the rental price.
If you wish to rent out your home completely furnished, we recommend that you complete an inventory list before commencement of the rental period. This list includes all removable items that are to be included at the rented property. The inventory list is checked during handover of the keys and if necessary accompanied by photos included in the inspection report.
Tenants often wonder what is more economical, unfurnished or furnished? The advantages of unfurnished homes can relate to the rental period. It may be easier to stay longer in an unfurnished home because it is worthwhile for tenants to ship across their own furniture from overseas. In contrast, the advantage of a furnished home is its flexibility. The home can also be occupied for a short time only. A disadvantage is that the property includes an additional selection criterion. Whether or not it is easier to rent out an unfurnished or furnished home is difficult to define. This totally depends on the target group for the property. Generally speaking, smaller apartments are easier to rent out if they are furnished and family homes rent out more easily if they are unfurnished.
