Free Property Management Consultation

The right rental value for your property in Baton Rouge will set you up for profits and pain-free investing. Many landlords we meet are confused about how to price their rental home. Rent that’s too low loses money right away, and it’s hard to catch up to market rates. Rent that’s too high will only leave your property vacant, and that’s expensive, too.

At Milton Lakvold Real Estate, we specialize in the Baton Rouge rental market. We analyze reliable market data to give you the best range for your home. Contact us for a free consultation of what your rental property is worth!

Chad is absolutely amazing! He made us feel incredibly comfortable every step of the process. Chad was on top of his stuff - the minute a new listing popped up that fit what we were looking for, he would let us know immediately! And every time we would walk into a home, Chad would point out even the smallest little details to help us understand more about the home we were looking at. When it came time to go under contract, Chad took his time to explain each and every clause of the purchase agreement so we understood what exactly we were agreeing to. I truly can't recommend Chad highly enough!!!
