At Ronald H. Byrd Broker, we aim to lease your property within 30-60 days of listing it on the market. While some homes may secure tenants even faster, others might take a little longer to find the right qualified tenant. As soon as your property is ready for rent, we kickstart the marketing process to attract potential tenants promptly.

For optimal results, we recommend having your home listed before the start of the month. This timing aligns well with tenants who often plan their moves by the end of the month. If your property is appropriately priced, well-maintained, and available for occupancy by the 1st, you’ll have a higher chance of securing tenants without experiencing any rental gaps.

To ensure your property is correctly priced from the outset, we offer our guidance and expertise. By pricing it accurately from the beginning, we avoid the need for price reductions later on, allowing you to receive a full month’s rent rather than a prorated amount after the fact.

When you entrust your property to us, we will keep you informed about the current market conditions, providing everyone involved with a better understanding of the expected market time.
