Tenant Leasing and Placement Services in Alki and Columbia City

We want to rent your home out quickly – to the best tenant and for the most rent.

Before we list it, we’ll settle on a price that’s both competitive and profitable. With our extensive knowledge of the Seattle rental market, we can conduct a CMA that will give us a solid range for where to price your home. Then, we’ll market it to prospective tenants, pre-qualify any interested renters, and show your property. When someone’s ready to apply, they’ll fill out our application and we’ll begin the screening process.

Free Rental Analysis

With RentFax, we can help you properly price your rental property. Incorrect pricing is one of the reasons that properties stay on the market longer than necessary. A vacant property isn’t making you any money, so let’s get it right. With this report, we’ll use your address and details about your home to compare what you offer to other properties already on the market. This will give you a high and low range, and we’ll talk about the best way to position your home competitively in the rental market.
