Leasing Your Irvine Rental Home
Part of providing our stress-free Irvine property management services is leasing. Renting out your investment property is where it all starts. We make sure to find you a qualified renter quickly, to reduce vacancy loss and ensure a successful and profitable rental experience.
Efficient Marketing and Leasing Leads to Lower Vacancy
With a unique 34-point marketing plan, we can advertise your property to a wider pool of tenants, attracting highly qualified renters and getting a lease signed as soon as possible. We save you money on vacancy loss and we manage everything from communicating with potential tenants to gathering applications and managing the showing process.
Screening Tenant Credit and Financials
Our system for screening Irvine tenants is fair and consistent. It’s also rigorous. We comply with all federal and state fair housing laws. Our process starts with checking your applicant’s credit and financial background. We want to make sure they can afford the monthly rent and that they have a history of paying on time.
Our process includes a thorough review of the credit report because we know financial responsibility is more than a credit score. We verify income and look for prior evictions.
A qualified tenant will be screened for:
- Satisfactory credit
- Income at least three times the monthly rent
- Verifiable identification and social security number
Evaluating Rental History
Tenants with perfect credit or high incomes can still be a risk. The way your residents treat your rental property is just as important as what they earn. That’s why we dig into their rental history.
We’re looking for tenants with a record of paying their bills on time, and we’re especially interested in how and when they pay their rent. So, we look for judgments or collections or money owed to former landlords or apartment communities. We talk to past landlords to get an idea of whether there was any property damage or problems with pets.
Our application collects a signature which grants us the ability to check credit, background, and criminal histories. It also gives us permission to talk to rental references. We provide all our applicants with a written list of rental criteria so they know exactly what they need to be approved for our Irvine rental homes.
Avoiding Irvine Evictions
Our eviction rate is 0.00% for tenants placed by HCM. This is a statistic we’re incredibly proud of, and we believe it speaks volumes about the effectiveness of our screening process.
Evictions in California are costly, risky, and time consuming. Mistakes are easy to make during the eviction process, and one missing step can set you back to the start of the process. You don’t want to find yourself having to remove a tenant, and when you partner with HCM, we make sure that’s unlikely to occur.
It’s more than good screening. It’s also good relationships. We work closely with tenants to avoid conflicts and eviction.
This doesn’t mean we won’t evict for unpaid rent, property damage, lease violations, or criminal conduct. It simply means we rarely need to take this step.
