I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day weekend – but so much for taking time off – this weekend was a WORKING weekend! For those searching for rentals just know that the rental market is heating up – HOUSES ARE RENTING QUICKLY! With inventories of rental single-family homes down, it is more challenging finding a rental that doesn’t already have an application on it. But Don’t get frustrated, get prepared! DRIVE THE SIGNS! It may sound like a waste of time but being in the right place, at the right time is how renters are scoring their next home! We showed a 4-plex in Torrance California this weekend and received multiple applications for the same unit – but only 1 applicant had a copy of their picture ID, 4 weeks of pay stubs, and a blank check for the application fee. Guess who’s in the front of the line for the unit? It was another lesson that if you plan on attending a house rental viewing, come prepared!
