Tenant Placement Services (Fall River / New Bedford)
I own 18 units in the Fall River / New Bedford area and currently have 5 vacancies. 3 units are on market, and 2 more are being cleaned up and will be on market next week. A couple of the units already on market have been on for several weeks, and one of them has been on market for about 6 weeks.
My property manager has a rental agent in house who is responsible for placing tenants, but I just don’t get the sense that their tactics for placing tenants are super effective as it’s taking a long time to fill the vacancies and prospective applicants that they’ve sent me are not very good and I’ve rejected them.
I’m looking for ideas from other landlords/PMs in the area on how I can most effectively increase the funnel of quality applicants to my vacant units, or if there are specific resources/agencies that people have used to do so. I’m willing to pay for those placement services if it can bring me good, qualified applicants that get placed in the units.
