Some people confuse 1st & Last Month's rent with a “Security Deposit”. Laws that govern the use of rents vary substantially from those that involve security deposits. In Washington it’s common to tenants to remit an amount of money equal to one month's rent (at least) in addition to their first month's rent before they can move in. This additional money is called a security deposit. The deposit should be held in a brokerage trust account, and it can't be touched unless the tenant vacates the property. The benefit of taking a reasonable security deposit is that the money acts as leverage for a tenant to leave the property in great condition when they move out. If we were to take First & Last Month's “Rent”, that money would never be returned to the tenant and thus would not provide any real security for the owner as the tenant has no real motivation to leave the property in good condition. Landlords often make the mistake of charging too little of a security deposit which increasing their liability. There are new products entering the market all the time. There are now security deposit alternatives, which you can use as a Landlord. For more information on these security deposit alternatives, contact our team.

There are several things to remember when you are trying to market your rental property. • The important thing is that the home is “clutter free” and extremely clean. Prospective tenants are most attracted to clean homes when they are walking through them. They need to be able to see your home as a place “they” could call home. We require maid service, and carpets to be steam cleaned. • Paint your home in neutral colors. If not white, then any grey or light cream color would work. We recommend strongly that you avoid green, blues, or other more custom colors; especially dark colors. • Fix anything that is broken: If we turn over a clean, operational and maintained home to a tenant, it is much easier to hold them accountable for returning it back that way. • Install landscaping: If your property is dirt and barren in the backyard, we highly recommend that you “at least” pour some rock down to make the yard more appealing. Additionally, having a patio back there adds a great amount of value to your home and will get it rented faster. Homes can still rent without anything in the backyard, but it will hurt the rent you can get and the speed in which you could get it. • Have appliances available: 98% of potential tenants do not have their own refrigerator, washer/dryer, stove, or dishwasher. These items are covered under the security deposit if damaged and the tenants will have to maintain them if you leave them in the home.
There are a lot of horror stories about pets destroying homes. In our opinion, the damage a pet can do to a rental is far more indicative of the quality of the tenant you rent too, and NOT the pet. A great tenant will keep the house in great condition, regardless of the existence of a pet. Additionally, you can charge anywhere from $250-$500 or more in additional security deposit or fee to allow pets in rental properties. It’s becoming more and more common to also collect a Pet Rent monthly. Also, you should remember that more than 2/3 of potential tenants have or will have a pet at some point. Turning down applicants with pets can “significantly” increase the amount of time your property sits on the market.
