As a property owner and landlord, it will be very important to get tenants to rent your property. With tenants, you will be able to earn revenue to pay for the property expenses as well as profit from your investment property. As a landlord, one of the things that you will need to do is draft a lease agreement. This is a document that you and the tenant will need to sign in order to make the rental agreement valid. Property owners will also need to draft a lease agreement, market the property and show the apartment unit. By doing these tasks, landlords will be in position to quickly and efficiently get their units rented as soon as possible. 

Evaluating the Lease Agreement
 

Before you present the lease agreement to a tenant, one of the things that you will want to do as a landlord is to evaluate the lease agreement. You will want to make sure that it is compliant with local rental laws as well as following a template that is legally recognized by state real estate law officials. Landlords can put together and present a lease agreement by checking out lease documents that are in accordance with something like AAOA standards. The American Apartment Owners Association has a number of lease agreement models that you can check out. Once you draft an agreement that adheres to these standards, you will be in position to have a legitimate lease agreement document. 

Drafting A Lease Agreement 

After evaluating a lease agreement that is compliant with local real estate and rental laws, you will then want to draft a lease agreement. When doing this task, it will be important to have a legal professional type this for you so that it is done properly. A legal professional such as a real estate lawyer can draft the agreement or tell you how to draft it yourself. Once you complete drafting a rental agreement, you will then have it ready for a prospective tenant to sign. 

Marketing Property 


As well as putting together a lease agreement, it will be important for a landlord to market the property. While you may have available rental units, you will need to inform the public about them. Fortunately, there are many ways in which you can market a rental unit vacancy. You can list the unit on the internet on apartment listing sites. Landlords can also list their rental unit vacancy in local newspapers such as the New York Times. Along with the internet and the newspaper, landlords can market their property through referrals, real estate publications, banners and direct mail pieces. All of these things will help a landlord get their apartment unit rented quickly. 

Showing Rental Unit 

Once you get an interested tenant to contact you about a rental unit vacancy, it will then be important to show them the rental unit. This is important because it will allow them to evaluate the unit and determine if it is right for them. After showing the rental unit, you will then want to ask them if they would like to rent the unit. If so, then you will just need to check their credit and get the lease agreement signed. Once this is all finished, you will complete the process of filling a rental vacancy.
