No Need to Worry About Rental Income

Worried about trying to sell your rental property during the rental season? You should be. The rental income your house produces adds value to your property, not to mention it helps pay the bills. The rental income is important to the buyer of your house too, so we take extra precautions to maintain the integrity of your rental program.

First we establish an open line of communication with the people who manage your property. We have a better working relationship with most of the people who work at the rental companies because we are not involved in the typical office politics that complicate many working situations. The selling agents and the rental agents who work at the company renting your house tend to get caught up in office politics. Selling your house through you rental company may not be the best move.

In order to protect your tenants from any unwanted intrusions and to relieve your rental agents of any unnecessary burden we will (with your permission):

1. We will make sure that your property will only be shown on turnover day while it's vacant and in between tenants. Typically, most weekday showings are requested by new agents on rainy summer days. It is cheap entertainment for some vacationers. Usually, after questioning the agent, it is determined that their buyer is not serious. If the buyer is serious then they usually are willing to make arrangements to see properties on turnover day.

If the situation arises where a buyer is in town only for the day and a showing is necessary during a rental occupancy we will personally ask you for permission to contact the tenants and or rental agency.

2. We will make any arrangements necessary with your rental agents prior to all turnover day showings. Sometimes renters stay for 2 weeks and arrangements will be necessary.

3. If we are unavailable to arrange a showing, Shore Realty has a system in place that allows any agent to make sure that everything goes smoothly.

4. We will handle the keys and keep account of their dispersal.

5. Obtain a history of your rental income and provide it to any potential buyers or their agents.

6. Place a notice in your property notifying the tenants that the property is for sale and which outlines the instructions for showing. This usually softens them up ahead of time in case we need to show the property while they are there.



Choosing an Agent



  • Print Advertising - Your property will receive unprecedented continuous exposure every month it is listed for sale. Your ad will appear every month in the Homes and Land magazine, instead of the typical ad rotation.
  • Virtual Floor Plan - Each residence is measured room by room for a concise virtual floor plan with lots of inter grated pictures of the property for a true Virtual Tour and not just a slide show of pictures.
  • Maximum Internet Exposure - Your property will be exposed to millions of people on 30 national real estate websites and with 8 news organizations including ABC, FOX, New York Post, Washington Post, New York Times and Cox Media.
  • Professional Photography - Don't let your house languish on the market because of poor quality pictures. Too many listing agents treat photos like it was still the last century. Pictures sell real estate!
  • Lock Boxes - Electronic lock boxes provide 21st century access.
  • MLS - Your property information will be entered into the Multiple Listing Service, including color photographs of the interior and exterior of the house, if applicable.
  • Open Houses - If the first Open House has a good turn out we will follow up with more.
  • Reverse Offer - Backwards real estate.
  • As Is - Is this the best way to get what you want?
