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.
