  3. 3. Started Let’s Get Started RENTALSWORLDWIDE.COM   First impressions always count when it comes to advertising a rental property. Communicating the unique features and benefits of your long-term rental is the key to attracting tenant enquiries. You will be able to create your own headline, description and select from a very comprehensive list of standard property features. You may also highlight the suitability of your property such as child friendliness, wheelchair access and if pets are welcome. Your monthly rate, security deposit and advance rent requirement can be included in the listing and the choice of currency is flexible. To apply for membership you will need to have ready your property information, some great photographs, your passport, ID card or driving license and either a Paypal account or credit card. Showcase your property in the best possible way in less than 15 minutes. Uploading your rental property is a simple process
  4. 4. Simple Keeping The Process Simple RENTALSWORLDWIDE.COM   Renting your property should be a potentially profitable business and as with all businesses, there are a number of factors to consider. Making sure that your property is presented in the best possible way and described fairly and accurately, so that you attract the right tenant, obtain a fair market rental rate, are important factors to consider. You also need to make sure that you conform to all local and national regulatory requirements and comply with the law. If you are unsure, you should advice. At RentalsWorldwide, we believe that presenting your property in the best possible way is critical for attracting enquiries and finding a tenant. Keeping your costs down is critical to your pocket – which is why, for long-term rentals, we not only empower you but save you money on agent commission fees. You can even list your rental property “For Sale” at the same time as advertising it for rent. List your property For Sale as well as Rent
  5. 5. Involvement Decide Your Own Level Of Involvement RENTALSWORLDWIDE.COM   Renting your property yourself can be a very satisfying and rewarding experience and besides, no-one knows your property better than you! With RentalsWorldwide, you now have the ability to save yourself a considerable amount of money on agent commission fees and advertising, all for a small amount of personal time and involvement. You will also have complete control and will be able to establish a direct relationship with your tenants. No Lease Agreement? If you do not have a standard English language lease agreement to sign with your new tenant, you can simply download one from your control panel and, if appropriate for your location, you can complete the details directly with your tenant. Of course some members may find the tenant directly and pass this their agent by negotiating a lower commission fee. Invest a little personal time to save money
  6. 6. Home Prepare and Showcase Your Home RENTALSWORLDWIDE.COM   Your property may well be furnished and ready to rent, however it is worth keeping in mind that some very simple points can make a difference in securing a tenant. Basic household items such as kitchen equipment, fridge/freezer, washing machine, hot water, air-conditioning, heating and TV’s should all be in good order. Tenants will look for signs that the property has been well maintained and is clean. Make sure that the driveway and entrance areas are tidy. Keep the heating or air-conditioning on to make the space comfortable. Make minor repairs and remove any garbage. Offer as much information on your property and the local area as you can – schools, shops, transport, parks and restaurants. You should try and make the tenants feel at home. Do not overlook compliance and safety requirements. The property must meet any regulations, safety compliance and any licensing requirements before you advertise to rent. Please seek advice if you are unsure. Showcase your property in the best way possible
  7. 7. Advert Putting Together a Winning Advert RENTALSWORLDWIDE.COM   At RentalsWordwide.com we believe in bringing a highly professional approach to advertising your long-term rental property. With large format images, unique property headline and full description together with a well structured and complete check- list of features, we ensure that nothing is overlooked in bringing your property to life. By understanding that potential tenants look for different information within your advert, it is important make your description and photographs as strong as possible. A winning advert draws attention and attracts enquiries and that means a potentially improved rental return. Show great pictures and as much information as possible
  8. 8. RENTALSWORLDWIDE.COM   It is important to take time for photographs. They can present your property better than any words. This is important as most people are visual by nature. Interesting photographs are likely to engage with the tenant’s attention. Here are a few tips to help take the best photographs: -  Prepare you property and choose a clear bright day, preferably with morning sun. Turn off any TV or computer displays, prepare the rooms and remove any unsightly objects. Do remember to take photographs of any special features. Try to avoid people in general photographs. -  Use natural light and shoot away from the windows to avoid exposure issues. If you require additional light, use the interior lighting but try both with and without the lights on and select the best results. -  Never display dark or cluttered images. Correct any photographs using simple editing software on your computer and choose the best results. -  Make sure you have good exterior shots of the property and any views. -  Showcase your rental property with up to 25 photographs Simple editing can make a photo stunning 1000 Words A Great Photograph is Worth a Thousand Words
  9. 9. Rental Rate Advertising With The Right Rental Rate RENTALSWORLDWIDE.COM   Much in the same way as a great description and photographs attracts positive attention, the same detail should be paid to your published rental rates. It is important that the property is not priced too high or too low and as such, it is worth spending a little time to research comparative rates for similar properties in the area. Many rentals properties are also for sale with tenants. We are the first rental portal that supports members to advertise their property for sale on their rental listing. Take direct enquiries, make a deal and pay no commission to us when you sell. The key to negotiating the final rentals rates is to be friendly and flexible within your limitations. Simply rejecting a good offer without discussion may cost you more in lost income over the coming weeks or months should the property remain unoccupied. Target local and expatriate tenants in cities around the world
  10. 10. Enquiries Responding to Your Enquiries RENTALSWORLDWIDE.COM   When a potential tenant makes an enquiry, they will contact you directly through the enquiry system to your account. You will also be alerted by email. The tenants and your email will not be disclosed until such a time as you both agree to share your contact information directly. Our advice is to always respond to tenants on the same day as you receive the enquiry to improve the chances of a successful appointment. Always include as much information as the tenant may have requested. Responding to enquiries presents an ideal opportunity to get to know each other and establish an early relationship. Your tenant will likely want to view the property, so provide clear meeting point instructions when arranging a viewing. Receive and manage your enquiries through your control panel
  11. 11. Tenants Meeting Your Potential Tenants RENTALSWORLDWIDE.COM   Meeting with your potential tenants should be a positive and friendly experience. Be prepared for the meeting with a Letter of Intent or similar document and a draft Tenancy Agreement. You may want to prepare your own, but a sample in English is provided on your control panel for your convenience. Show the benefits of the property and listen for feedback. Be clear and flexible, within your limits, to any requests as this will influence the tenant decision making process. Clarify the rental rate and the responsibility of each party towards the security deposit, notice periods and bills. Having now shown or given the details of your property and explained the features and benefits, you can simply ask for a decision and agree. Renting your own place can be a rewarding experience
  12. 12. Payments The Tenancy Agreement Deposit & Payments RENTALSWORLDWIDE.COM   As soon as you have signed a Letter of Intent and prior to signing the Tenancy Agreement, you should take an agreed non- refundable deposit to remove the property from the market. You will also need a copy of the tenant’s ID and any references. Upon signing the Tenancy Agreement, you should secure the advance rent and a security deposit. Often the non-refundable deposit will be converted to become the security deposit. You should provide a receipt and provide your bank details to the tenant for the ongoing rent payments. Registering a Tenancy Agreement may be required in some territories and quite often this is a simple on-line process. In other territories, the deposits may be held by a regulated or approved entity and again these are generally easy online procedures that take just a few minutes to complete. If you are unclear, check online or with your local authorities to ensure that you are following the correct process for your territory. Rent out your place at home or abroad
  13. 13. Tenants Preparing For Your Tenants RENTALSWORLDWIDE.COM   Now you are ready for your tenants to move in. The following are a few pointers and reminders to help with a successful transition. -  Make sure the property is clean, any repair work and servicing has been completed. -  Remind your tenants to arrange for the transfer of utility bills to their name and take a meter reading. -  Explain how to operate any systems such as security alarms. -  Prepare the key sets. -  Prepare and together with the tenant review and sign the inventory list. You can download a useful starter list to help you from your control panel. Each party should keep a signed copy. You may like to take photographs to avoid any future disputes. -  If there is any damage to the property, fixtures or fittings, then this should be noted and countersigned by both parties. -  Confirm you have a copy of your tenants official ID. Let the tenants settle in. A new place, a new experience
