Selecting the Best Baton Rouge Tenants

We’ve been managing Baton Rouge properties for many years, and in our experience, we’ve found that the best rental experiences begin with the best tenants. With good tenants, you can be sure your rent will be paid on time. You’ll know that you have someone taking care of your property, and you can be reasonably sure that the important parts of the lease agreement will be followed. With tenants that aren’t so great, you’re stuck chasing late rent, cleaning up property damage, and heading to eviction court.

Property management can help. When you partner with an experienced team to find you the best possible residents, you’ll know that your renters are well-qualified and rigorously screened.

Placing top-quality tenants in your property will provide consistent rental income and help in maintaining your property. It will lead to a better experience for you and for us – so we make it a priority.


Attracting Good Tenants with Great Marketing Strategies

It’s important to find and place a good tenant quickly. Keeping your vacancy rate low depends on it. Great tenants are found with great marketing. We make sure to get your listing out in front of as many renters as possible. 

You’ll see your home on our website and we’ll also use some of the most popular online advertising sites that we know tenants are searching. With dynamic descriptions, professional-quality photographs, and immediate follow-up, you’ll find that it doesn’t take long to generate a lot of interest in your Baton Rouge rental property.

Responsiveness Delivers Better Showings and More Applications

Another part of moving the leasing process along is showing your property. 

We don’t waste time. When prospective residents call or send a message about your property, we take the time to answer questions and provide information. We do a bit of pre-screening to make sure they meet our initial qualifications. This saves time and resources.

Next, we schedule showings for those prospective residents at times that are convenient for them. We continue to be available to answer questions about the property. We’ll discuss lease terms, talk about pets, and get a good idea about whether these tenants would be the reliable, responsible residents we’re looking for. 

Our leasing team is excellent at what they do. Save yourself some time and money by working with the professionals at Milton Lakvold Real Estate.

Consistent and Fair Tenant Screening Identifies the Best Baton Rouge Residents

Finally, we get to the most important part of the leasing process: tenant screening. 

This requires careful attention to screening standards as well as fair housing laws. Our entire process is well-documented, ensuring it’s compliant and consistent. Once we collect a completed application and an application fee from the tenants, we’ll take a close look at the following:

  • Tenant credit report and history
  • Criminal background and any past evictions
  • Income and employment
  • Rental history and landlord references

We’re sensitive to vacancy times, and we won’t let your property remain unoccupied for longer than necessary. But, we also won’t rush the screening process. We take the time to select renters who meet our high standards for your building and your neighborhood. With the right tenants in your units, you’ll have peace of mind and a pleasant rental experience.
