We are currently testing this as a service, but we've subscribed to a company where we can pull rental comparables for properties.

If you are analyzing a property and it looks interesting, you can email James and Tammy and ask them to pull rental comparables to see what fair market rent might be on the property.

Be sure to include the following in your email request:

  • Address of the property
  • Number of bedrooms (required to do rent comps)
  • Whether it is a SFH or apartment (the two choices for rent comps)
  • Whether you want just the report or the report and the CSV of the rent comps data if you plan to do some additional work on the data yourself in Excel

Mark this task complete when done.

If after analyzing the property it looks interesting, request a showing by emailing your Real Estate Broker.

TIP: If you're working with James and Tammy, be sure to email both of them since James may not be in his email and Tammy could setup up the showing before James will even be back in his email. If you just email James, he may not even see it until much later and then he'll typically forward it to Tammy to setup the showing.

Be sure to include:

  • Property address
  • MLS number if possible
  • Your availability to be able to see the property (provided the Seller can accommodate that day and time)
  • Any additional questions you might have about it (if any)

Scheduling a Showing with Seller/Agent

  • Option 1: They confirm showing and we can “go and show”
  • Option 2: They need to ask permission from Seller
  • Seller may approve showing
  • Seller may decline showing
  • They may not be able to reach Seller
  • Option 3: They need to ask permission from Tenant
  • Tenant may approve showing
  • Tenant may decline showing
  • They may not be able to reach Tenant
  • Option 4: They may have limited showing times
  • Different days/times than what we’re trying to do
  • Many times, multi-family and tenant occupied properties have a 24 hour notice

Once you’ve requested a showing, we will send you a Buyer Tour.
