Important Steps to Rent Your Home Out from A to Z

Step by step checklist for getting a home rented, and link to the full property management guide

Step 1 to for the question of how to rent my house? Consider your general strategy

1 Consider strengths and weaknesses for your home and location and consider special strategies to utilize them.  Is it a college area? If so, you’ll likely handle a lot differently from low income, or a suburb

Step 2 to rent your own townhome. Get the rental in great shape

2 Get the property in show-ready condition by handling repairs, but also low-cost aesthetic fixes like spray painting rusted AC grates, and other things that really stand out.  A sure way to attract sub-par tenants and repel the rest is to show a home with unrepaired issues

Step 3 for the question of how to rent my own home? The crucial issue of pet friendly

3 Decide whether you’re going to allow pets or not.  Before you decide, know that for most landlords it’s the single best thing you can do to increase your “bottom line” profit over the long term.  More on this subject here 

rental space
Step 4 to renting your home yourself is perhaps most important of all, setting the rental rate.

4 Set a rental rate that will balance a minor amount of time on market hassle, with monthly rate.  Whether in the form of owner-occupied showings, stress, or vacancy. Most owners fail to properly account for these subtle but real costs, especially vacancy.  Vacant homes are much more costly than most account for. We can provide a free rental rate estimate compiled by people, not an algorithm, here

Renting out your home can be a very smart and lucrative decision when done properly. Determining up-front what costs and benefits to renting your home can be expected is crucial. Accurate pricing, knowing state and federal landlord laws, and understanding the future market trends are all pivotal in the success of your rental home.

The exact requirements can vary by state or municipality. Most areas do require a real estate license if you collect rent and deposits on someone else’s behalf. Simply put, your friend that used to work for an apartment complex cannot market your home, lease, or collect rental funds on your behalf unless licensed.

Without being partial, that’s really a preference question. However, here is our list of things to be on the lookout for in a great property manager:

Communication: Are your questions answer quickly, clearly, and kindly?

What do their property manager reviews have to say?

Has the rental process been explained clearly and do you agree with it?

Are their rental home listings clear and descriptive or rushed?

Property management company fees vary widely based on the type of service, season, and property management company you choose. Average monthly fees can be around 10% while some companies may charge a flat monthly rate

Being a landlord can be both fun and easy. With free property, management software available ( do-it-yourself landlords have never had it easier! However, the largest sacrifice to be a landlord is time, and stress. Advertising your rental home, processing applications, emergency maintenance calls, and the unfortunate eviction can quickly wipe out a huge amount of what you might save by passing on hiring tax-deductible superior property management services. That said, a poor rental management company can cause headaches of their own, so it’s a matter of finding a great one. If you do, they’re worth their weight in gold

According to RocketHomes.Com,“When you sell a home, that’s the extent of the money you will make on the property. But if you hold it as a rental, you could continue to earn money every month, realize tax advantages and, ideally, see appreciation.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves! With the expanding real estate market, now is the perfect time to invest in rental property. The US government has built a system where the easiest and most consistent path to wealth is owning exceptionally managed rental homes

Yes! Property management fees, and even most maintenance items, are tax-deductible as they pertain to your rental property

Happy Customer Feedback

Jacquelyn Pet: Cat has been so welcoming and helpful in our search for a rental home!

Sarah Zdr: Cat was so helpful and communicative during our rental process. She was responsive and easy to work with right from the first time we spoke. I would recommend Cat and MoveZen any day

Sruti Ray: I highly recommend Cat Worlds and MoveZen Property Management for exceptional property management services. As a tenant under their care, I have experienced firsthand their dedication to maintaining high standards of professionalism and efficiency. Cat is an excellent communicator, quick to address concerns and maintenance issues. The team at MoveZen goes above and beyond to ensure tenants feel valued and well cared for. If you’re in need of reliable and customer-focused property management, Cat and MoveZen Property Management are the ones to choose.

Mehreen Cho: It was an absolute pleasure working with our account manager Cat Worlds from Movezen. She was super friendly, helpful, and informative, starting from Day 1 of house showing! Once we met her, within the next day we decided to book the property, because she was very transparent and made the whole process seamless. It was super easy to finalize everything, and Cat made it happen! It’s probably the best experience I’ve ever had with a property manager so far. I would highly recommend this agency to all my friends and family! Thank you for all the amazing support Cat Worlds and Movezen!

Scott Sca: Best management company in Raleigh! Friendly staff who does what it takes to keep your property occupied with quality tenants.

Saif Abd: Can honestly say working with Cat and MoveZen property management has been one of the best experiences we have had! (And we have been renting in the area for a decade now). The first day we met Cat during the tour, she was very informative and helpful! She has kept us in the loop throughout the process and supported us with all our needs! She has gone above and beyond and we are feeling at peace to move into a place where the agency and the agent really cares!

Macey Arr: Cat was very nice and responded quickly to all of our questions!

Brittne Sha: Kat proved to be a delight to collaborate with, offering assistance throughout the entire application process. Thanks to her support, our move-in experience was seamless and pleasant.

Frankie Ban: Cat is amazing to work with. She made our process to moving in our new home stress-free. She is always available for questions and is prompt in her response.

ALFREDA RIC: Hello, the move was long. We had quite a bit of things to move. Since we were moving around the holiday my friend and her family cooked/prepared our Thanksgiving meal for us. Three of the items required time in the oven. Once we were ready to eat we wanted to put the selected items in the oven and found out, the oven wasn’t working, so we had to eat what was already ready. That didn’t dampen us, because we were in a brand new environment. We haven’t had time to enjoy it yet, but we’ll get to that bridge after we unpack the boxes and put everything in its new home. Cat was with us all the way from when the applications were first started until the funds were due. Now I just need to figure out how to get things done through the portal.

Rachel Jes: Ashley is amazing!! She is very responsive and knowledgeable. Our move-in process was very easy and we are more than grateful!!

B. Gre: Ashley Jones has made having a rental property on the other side of the country an absolute breeze. She goes above and beyond for clients- from dealing with tenants to repairs to getting your paperwork in order, all seamless. Thank you Ashley and MoveZen team.

Anastasia Tim: We couldn’t be happier with the experience we’ve had with MoveZen. Our agent, Cat, has been wonderful and made the entire rental process a breeze. Easily the best rental company we’ve had.

Sarah C: We live on the other side of the country, so we NEED someone like Cat managing our rental – she’s super-responsive, a great communicator, and always follows through with whatever needs attention. Update – four years later, and Cat is still making things a breeze for us. Definitely recommend.

Erica: This was our first time dealing with MoveZen Property Management. Our point of contact was Amber, she was an absolute nightmare she is very rude and unprofessional. If you rent with this company please ask for someone else to look over your property. With all the issues my family and I had, we escalated this matter with the manager, she was very sympathetic and kind. We wish we reached out sooner. With that being said, we were appointed a new point of contact named Ashley Jones! What a beautiful human being! She’s been a pleasure to deal with. She is amazing and my husband and I have nothing but good things to say. She’s the reason we would recommend the company to our friends and family. She’s the reason our one-star experience turned into a five-star review.

Anna Nic: We have had such a great experience! Would recommend! Amber is great!

Katherine Gle: Moving in with MoveZen was so easy and convenient! The house was cleaned thoroughly before we got there. We had a maintenance request pop up on the first Saturday afternoon, and we received a response within a few hours, and the problem was remedied within 36 hours of us finding out about it. The only hold up was due to Mother’s Day and the contractor’s availability. Overall extremely happy with the service we received and the quality of customer service. Highly recommend this property management company to all looking to rent in Charlotte.

Adrian Pow: MoveZen has been actively managing my rentals for the last 3 years. I am very happy with how smoothly this goes and the excellent communication they have with me.

Atif I: Worked with Amber, she was fantastic throughout the process and gave me good advice on everything. She is very responsive and knows the market. I would highly recommend her.

Yosslin Lop: One of the best companies that you can rent from. No issues whatsoever. Rachel and her team work with us very well for the past 2 years.

Dylan Ara: Amber has been great with MoveZen, responsive and professional.

Adam Dhe: I’ve been using MoveZen for a couple of years now and can’t say enough good things about them. My property manager is Amber R and she has made this process so easy. She is super sharp and very quick to respond to any questions! Do not hesitate to have MoveZen manage your property!

Mikey Pen: Amber Reavis has managed my rental property for the past 4 years and I have been very satisfied with her service. She always represents both the property owner and the tenant fairly.

Mark P: They’ve been managing two rentals for us for some time and they’ve done a great job!

Alysa Buc: I found MoveZen through a simple Google search and am so glad I did! Their onboarding process is straightforward, clear, and very detailed. I was impressed with how frictionless they are in educating property owners of what to expect when choosing MoveZen. I also appreciate their online portal. Cat was assigned as our property manager and she has been SUCH a BLESSING! We are so grateful that she came into our lives at just the right time. She is someone we can trust, depend on, and be a bright light anytime we communicate. We live out of state but it has never been an issue when working with Cat. She is extremely prompt in her communications, transparent in what is going on with the property, brings in quality contractors, listens intently to my requests and questions, and (most importantly) wants the best for us as property holders and for the tenants that reside in our home. I know Cat has many properties she is responsible for, but she makes us feel like we are her only account — THAT is how much she cares about providing excellent service. When I think about how diligent and on top of things as Cat is, I wonder how she does it all and I get inspired myself! She makes it seem easy. We could not have asked for a better partner. It has reduced the stress we felt every single day when it came to renting our property. Things felt overwhelming before she entered the picture. It truly feels like we can breathe easier knowing Cat is on the job and looking out for us!

Catherine Sca: Cat Worlds was a fantastic property manager! Super helpful and responsive whenever we needed something.

Kelbo: Amber and the rest of the MoveZen team have done an excellent job taking care of us! Easy to contact, quick turnaround on work orders, and always willing to help us out with questions or concerns. I’ve never had a better experience with a rental!

Tristan Par: I have always had good experiences working with Amber. She is quick to respond and attentive.

Mandy Shr: Cat, with MoveZen, has been great from the beginning. We found a property we wanted to act upon quickly and she was extremely helpful from beginning to end (and continues to be helpful). I’d recommend anyone to work with her and the MoveZen team!

Tracie Pel: We have had the absolute pleasure of working with Cat Worlds for over 8 years. She manages several of our homes in the RTP area and does an outstanding job. She is extremely meticulous and pays extremely close attention to detail. We would not be as successful in our real estate business without Cat. Thanks for all you do Cat!!!

Bruce Tho: Cat Worlds has been fantastic to work with! After not having the best experience with a property management company previously, I took time to research and compare companies and ultimately decided on MoveZen. From the initial property tour to securing tenants to coordinating repairs, Cat has been excellent at communicating through every step and is an absolute pleasure to have on your side as an owner. I look forward to a long and successful relationship with Cat & MoveZen.

Bryan Mod: Had to move out because owner was selling house! Put in an application with MoveZen property management and as soon as I submitted it I received a call from Cat and she was very nice and informative! Made my move in super easy!

Tiffany Jon: It was really nice working with Amber! She helped with making our transition very smooth!

SoulfulMik: Cat Worlds is an absolute pleasure to work with, even though we were not selected for the rental that we applied for she made the process so easy and was so kind and helpful the entire way. Will absolutely recommend this management company and hopefully can work with them in the future.

Karen Ste: June at MoveZen Property Management went above and beyond to assist me. She was patient, kind, and knowledgeable about the industry. Thank you, June!

Ken B: Very helpful in finding a rental property.

Brian She: Amber has been a very good property manager for our rental home. She is good at finding tenants quickly–she starts searching 4 months before the lease is up to minimize the time looking. She takes good care of the house with repairs done on time and with a small budget. Amber is very attentive, communicates well, and is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend working with Amber.

Laura Sta: Working with Cat was amazing from start to finish! She is professional, responsive, and kind. Would recommend her to anyone looking to rent in Raleigh!

Jessica Mon: Amber from MoveZen Property Management is awesome!! She is very professional and very easy to talk to. She is very responsive to all phone calls, responds quickly to emails, and has been a pleasure to work with. This company is very thorough. Properties look the way they do in the photos, very clean and an overall amazing experience renting from them.

Silasia Inc: Amber and MoveZen have been a life saver in managing my 4 rentals. Everything is streamlined, transparent, and most importantly keeps me from being interrupted by the day to day tasks.

Trisha Bru: I have 2 properties managed by MoveZen and I am extremely happy with them. Amber Reavis handles my account for my property in Cary and it has been a pleasure working with her. She notifies me when any issues come up and handles them in a timely and efficient manner. I highly recommend working with this company and have never had a problem.

Michael Cim: MoveZen was a great company to rent from – I really enjoyed the house that I lived in, and they were always very responsive to maintenance requests. I got my full security deposit back no problem.
