Finding the right tenants is very important, but if you want to rent out your house, there are also rules and regulations you need to take into account. Up to date market knowledge is important for setting the right price and so forth. You have the option of going with a traditional real estate agent, however you would be looking to paying a heavy commission, from 8 to 12 % of the rental fee, which is approximately 1 month rent.
The right tenant
Finding the right tenant is important for many reasons. It is often said that getting an expat is the best, they have high incomes and always leave at some point int time. Although Expats are great tenants, locals can be just as good. A tenant needs to be evaluated on a personal level, and not just looked at regarding their nationality or occupation.
At RentSlam we have hundreds of tenants actively looking to rent a place. There is a healthy mix of expats and locals, so even if you have specific requirements, you can always find the right person for you. We insist that the best way to select a tenant in by meeting with them during a viewing. This will give you a good picture and feeling about the person you are dealing with. On top, we can always do a background check if you have any doubts.

The right commission
Real estate agents are a good option. They are however not cheap. They usually charge you 8 to 12% commission. This is often not in line with the work they do. It is understandable, as there is lots of manual work involved. At RentSlam we let you do some of the tasks yourself, automate some tasks and do some manually. This means we only charge you 2% commission, that is a 75% saving. And if really want us to do everything, that is also possible. The price will be a bit higher, but still less than half of what you would pay an agency.
