Why Pay to Hire a Tenant Broker?

• Better Property Access »

A tenant broker is a professional real estate agent who helps prospective tenants locate suitable rental property here in Marin or San Francisco. A tenant broker is hired and compensated by the tenant; he or she is then able to use multiple resources to identify potential properties for you without worrying about whether a commission is offered on a property or not. Sometimes leasing agents offer a commission to outside brokers, sometimes, especially in a hot rental market with off-market or “pocket” inventory, they do not.

• Better Representation »

The Marin and San Francisco rental markets are very competitive. You’ll want to have a tenant broker looking out for you and representing your interests. Landlords typically hire brokers — called “leasing agents” — to fill vacancies, but in this case the agents work for the landlord, not for you. They earn a commission from the landlord each time they procure a qualified tenant to sign a lease. Tenant brokers can provide you with sound analysis of real estate market conditions, inform you about off-market property availability, and negotiate lease terms with a landlord or landlord’s agent.

• Better Application Positioning »

When you hire a tenant broker, he or she works for you. A tenant broker is able to give you objective advice, since their commission isn’t directly tied to a particular property, letting you know if a property is over- or under-priced. This information can make or break your approval. In addition, working with a broker lets a landlord know you’re pre-qualified and seriously looking at leasing opportunities. This may make a landlord look more favorably upon your application, especially in a multiple-offer situation.

The best way to find a good tenant broker is to ask the right people.

Get referrals from your peers or business associates, or just ask brokers about their experience. Look for a broker with a history of helping clients find properties and experience negotiating lease terms, who has access to off-market inventory, along with a proven track record of protecting tenants – like the team at Foundation Homes International.

One-on-One Search Consultation

Get dedicated advice from one of our experienced agents. Narrowing (or broadening!) your search begins with an advance one-on-one consultation in which we seek to understand your needs, make suggestions, and offer feedbback on listings you may have already identified as possible candidates. Often, we find clients are not familiar enough with the area to know what potential additional neighborhoods may be a great fit!

Advance Application Pre-qualification

You must pre-qualify for all of our Relocation Packages – but trust us – this is a good thing! Ensuring we are only viewing properties for which you qualify will save you time and money.

Application Package Preparation Assistance (including Pet Application(s))

This market moves quickly, and when we find the right spot you’re going to want to be prepared to submit an application/offer right away. We will help you prepare your Application Package in advance in a manner in which it is most likely to get approved. This is especially helpful for interntional clients without credit, clients with pets who may have trouble getting the pet(s) approved, or clients with more complicated financial or credit histories. Our team knows how to best position your application.

Property Tours Coordinated

We work to uncover the right rental for you – whether it’s currently on the market or not – via our VIP “Coming Soon” off-market access. We will show you properties that are both publicly and privately listed.

Chauffeured Tours

No need to rent a car while you are here – your agent will drive during your tour! (The only exception is if you choose to bring your children with you [which we do not recommend as we pack the schedule tightly], in which case you will need to provide your own transportation.)

FREE Off-Market Inventory Access (a $95.00 value)

All packages include complimentary access to our VIP “Coming Soon” program which includes access to listings BEFORE they go live on sites like Zillow, Craigslist and MLS.

Lease and Contract Negotiation & Assistance

Your agent is your fiduciary and will help negotiate your terms/lease as well as review any lease you sign to offer feedback – this can be especially helpful if you choose a property represented by a self-managing landlord who may (intentionally or unintentionally) attempt to include terms that are not legal.

Platinum Package

If you are new to the area, or simply do not have time to deal with finding a rental, the Platinum Package might be the best fit for you. This package is for the serious home hunter committed to finding a rental on schedule who needs an agent equally committed for a 30 day period.
Package Price: $2,995
Length of Services: 30 Day Service
