6 Steps to Lease Your Property in 29 Days or Less…Guaranteed

For each day your property is vacant, that’s money out of your pocket. With the lease-only option from Real Property Management Des Moines Select, we will find tenants for your rental property in 29 days or less…guaranteed*. Once your property is rent-ready, we handle the rest in the lease-only process, which is designed to save you time and money:


Here’s 6 Steps to Lease Your Property in 29 Days or Less…Guaranteed*:

  1. Get Your Property Rent Ready
    Getting your property rent-ready is important to attract new tenants. You may want to clean, make improvements, do repairs and re-key the home. Here is a helpful guide for getting your home rent-ready.
  2. Market Your Property
    For each day your property is vacant, that’s money out of your pocket.  Professional management costs are easily offset by shorter vacancy times.  We spend thousands of dollars every month advertising our vacancies to get them filled – faster.  Your property is advertised on the most visited rental and classified websites.  Our innovative technology allows potential tenants to schedule their showings online 24/7.  Prior to marketing and advertising your rental property, our experts also advise you in two important areas:

    • Setting a competitive monthly rental rate based on a comprehensive analysis of property condition, upgrades, school districts, location and access to transportation, and area rental market rates. Our experience helps you make more money. This step can really assist to lease your property.
    • Getting your home ready to rent faster, to a high quality tenant, by providing recommendations and guidance on how to make your property rent-ready. Learn how to get your home rent-ready. ›
  3. Answer Inquiries Promptly
    We answer any inquiries from prospective residents by text, phone and e-mail. Our phone number and additional contact information can be found on yard signs and everywhere your property is shown online. You can go about your day uninterrupted and we will notify you when we have secured a qualified applicant to lease your property.
  4. Schedule Showings with Experienced Leasing Specialists
    When prospective tenants find your property online and like the photos they see, they will reach out to us. Our responsive, experienced leasing agents show your property in a professional manner and are committed to finding you reliable tenants. Our detailed showings are an excellent way for us to “get to know” prospective tenants and get their thoughts on your property. This part of our lease-only service will save you a lot of time and headaches.
  5. Screen and Qualify Prospective Tenants
    Placing the wrong tenant can quickly cost you what you save by managing a property yourself. Every tenant application is evaluated based on credit, criminal background, employment verification and residency/rental history. Our thorough screening complies with all applicable laws, including Fair Housing and Fair Credit Reporting Act.
  6. Lease Signing and Move-In
    When we have found a qualified tenant, we will schedule the lease signing and move-in process. Your leasing agent manages the lease signing with the approved tenant, using the state-approved lease (or the lease you provide), and ensures that all proper contracts are executed correctly.  At the same time, rents, deposits and any fees are collected in accordance with local legal and financial regulations, and recorded in your online account.
