Step 1

Complimentary Initial Consultation

We have the answers to the tough questions, and it's our business to know the legalities of leasing. If you schedule a consultation with us, we guarantee you'll learn some of the finer points of property management.

Step 2

Preparation for Market

Part of our consultation will include a summary of improvements and repairs that should be done, in order to get your property leased quickly and for top dollar. 

Step 3

Advertising and Marketing

Mega Agent Rental Management has years of experience marketing homes, and our team has one of the strongest web presences in the greater Birmingham market. Your home will be marketed on our very popular website, the traditional MLS and other real estate websites. Anywhere renters are looking online, we want to have your home listed there! Any calls received about the property will be answered in our office by our professional staff. Mega Agent Rental Management will manage all showings and accept / screen applications until the right tenant is secured.

Step 4

Tenant Screening

All potential tenants must fill out our team's rental application and will undergo extensive credit, criminal and employment check. We will also verify previous landlord references. We do everything we can to ensure that the tenants we select for your home have an excellent history.

Step 5

Lease Execution

Our lease has been drafted and reviewed by lawyers with experience with Alabama's Landlord/Tenant Law. The lease undergoes periodic reviews to keep it up to date with any legal changes. At lease signing, we will make every effort to ensure that both the tenant and landlord are clear on the expectations and terms of the agreement.

Step 6

Walk-Through and Move In

Prior to moving in, one of our agents will conduct a walk-through with the tenant to make note of the existing condition of the home, so that we can verify that upon move-out, it is in the same condition, with the exception of normal wear and tear.

Step 7

Maintenance and Rent Collection

We will manage all rent collection, and if necessary, evictions. Our team will also coordinate any necessary repairs or maintenance activities.

Step 8

Monthly Reporting to Property Owner

Mega Agent Rental Management uses software that allows us to provide our owners with any reporting you may require, regarding rent collection or maintenance fees. Additionally you can review any maintenance work orders that have been placed on your property. Rental income will be electronically deposited in your bank account on the 10th or 11th of every month.
