Vancouver Sublet, Property Management, And Saving You Thousands
Last week we spoke about the best way to find a summer sublet in Montreal.
Shortly after my friend Jalil from Vancouver called me up.
“What the hell man? Why only Montreal, what about us crunchy people over here on the west coast?”
Jalil was clearly agitated.
Without wanting to upset Jalil, or giving him a long explanation over the phone and make him miss his yoga class, I committed to remedying the situation.
This one’s for you J-bird!
Vancouver Sublet: Everything You Need to Know
From time to time, life brings us surprises. Very often, the bigger surprises involve moving, new jobs, new life partners, or new family additions.
These may require you to find a new place to live. Maybe you’re moving from Vancouver, or needing a bigger/smaller place.
Needless to say, your circumstances have changed, and finding a Vancouver sublet is something you’re considering.
A sublet is an excellent way to move out of your current place early, and cover your costs, so you’re not stuck paying for two properties.
Got a new job on the other side of town and need to move? Sublet your current apartment until the lease is up, freeing you to rent somewhere else.
Simple as that.
When you need a Vancouver sublet, you want to ensure your property is in good hands. This is why you should consider a management company like Host Kick.
Let me explain.
Vancouver Sublet: Finding a Renter
Finding renters to sublet your home or apartment can be tricky business. It involves marketing your place on local listing sites, answering questions, screening tenants, meeting them, and getting them to sign relevant paperwork.
For Vancouver sublets, the easiest thing you could do it hire a property management company like Host Kick to handle all of this for you.
At Host Kick, we advertise, screen, and respond to renter questions, so you don’t have to.
Vancouver Sublet: Negotiating Price
At Host Kick, we have pricing software that we use to accurately price your property based on several data points.
I won’t get into the details of our software and algorithm, but let’s just say it’s super-duper sciencey.
Our tools assess local Vancouver competition, and make price suggestions depending on availability, seasonality, and the specifics of your property compared to similar ones in the area.
Host Kick may even suggest improvements to you that will help you sublet your place at a higher price.
Vancouver Sublet: A Quick Scenario
Jalil, let’s say that you’re going to spend your summer wandering the coast barefoot through various drum circle colonies. I’m kidding! I know you’re going to Coachella!
Nevertheless, Jalil tells me he’d feel much better if someone rented his studio, keeping an eye on things, and watering his sage plants.
What we at Host Kick have seen in the past, is that people have trouble subletting for such a short time.
But this is no longer the case.
