Leasing

Lingsch Realty takes pride in renting your vacant units quickly for top dollar.  There are four steps involved in renting any property.

1) Marketing

We make informed decisions about pricing. When evaluating the income potential of a unit, we take into consideration the condition of the building, the interior finishes, the neighborhood and comparable units on the market.

We look at each property individually to prepare a marketing plan to highlight its best features and use many advertising outlets to reach the most likely tenant for that particular unit.

We advertise on over 10 Internet sites including CraigsList.  We also send out an email to our personal contacts letting them know that we have a great property available to rent.

We make ourselves available at all times of the day and night to show our listings.  We realize most tenants have 9-to-5 jobs, and cannot make time during the day to see apartments.  Therefore, we understand the importance of being available in the early mornings, evenings and weekends.

2) Tenant Application Process

Our goal is to get you the best tenant for the best price in the least amount of time possible.  To do that, we meet all tenants personally when showing the property.  We thoroughly review all applications and run complete credit reports and background checks.  We never rent your property without you giving final approval of the proposed tenant.

3) Lease Preparation

We use the San Francisco Apartment Association’s lease template, which was created specifically for San Francisco’s strict tenant laws by local legal experts.  You have the option to review the lease prior to the tenant signing.  Our lease includes all the required disclosures.

4) Monitoring

Once your tenant is settled in their new home, we consistently alert you to important dates such as rent increases and lease renewals.  At Lingsch Realty, we believe that our relationship doesn’t end once we have found you a tenant.  We want to support your continued success for an ongoing relationship with your tenant.
