At Empire we strive to do our very best to lease your property as quickly as possible
We accomplish this by offering your property on multiple platforms. We utilize the local MLS service in addition to a self-showing service. Once a potential tenant has been approved through some pre-qualifying measures and given us adequate identification documents, they can schedule a showing on their own.
Offering the self-showing options has cut down on our days on market.
So far we’ve decreased our days on market by about 15 days. Utilizing multiple platforms to get your property the most exposure possible helps get a quality tenant in your home quickly.
