UNDERSTANDING RENTALS

Renting homes is a faster way to fill a community with vacant sites than individual home sales. Placing rental homes in your community brings some factors to consider that are unique from tenant-owned homes. When determining your target market price, it’s important to consider the home rent and the associated costs that come with a rental home. You will need to insure the home, pay property taxes and account for the refurbishment work that will be required when the home becomes vacant before placing another renter in the home. Inspecting the home asset requires someone to visit the home regularly and ensure the collateral is in good shape. If you have a long term plan to eventually convert rental homes to tenant-owned homes, you will also need to consider the current home rent vs. a future home monthly payment for a customer in your market.

Receive & Setup the Home

Receiving delivery of a new home to your property is an exciting event. Taking care of the home asset by ensuring it is received and setup properly is vital to the long term useful life of the home. Receiving the home when it comes offline at the home building facility initiates the setup process. Once the home is on site, checking the home for damage or service repairs should happen within days of receiving the home. Coordinating with contractors to order materials and complete the labor for the installation of items such as a foundation, skirting, A/C, steps and services for utilities takes an organized effort to get the home setup and ready for occupancy for your new tenant.
