High-Quality Rental Properties Deserve High-Quality Tenants

Marketing Rental Homes

Our experienced marketing team uses state-of-the-art technology to create tailored, visually appealing listings for your Sacramento rental properties. We effectively advertise your rentals on various platforms, including our own website, ensuring maximum visibility and a larger pool of potential tenants.

The technology we use to market your home allows us to syndicate your listing, expanding our reach and gathering even more attention to your rental home. We use social media, our own professional networks, and our relationships with relocation professionals and real estate agents.

Rental Property Showings

Our trained professional agents and property managers take care of responding to prospective tenants when they call for more information about your property.

We’re responsive and available, and we’re also eager to conduct home showings, saving you the time required to schedule and meet with each prospective tenant.

With strong communication skills and industry knowledge, we’re able to showcase your property and promptly attract suitable renters. We’ll offer applications at the time of showing and do a bit of pre-screening.

Sacramento Tenant Screening

We have a process in place to ensure that only well-qualified renters move into your property. Our thorough tenant screening process includes verifying income and employment, conducting credit and background checks, and checking rental and eviction history.

This rigorous and consistent process ensures that we place responsible tenants who are more likely to care for your property and fulfill their rent and lease obligations.

Our screening process is compliant with all fair housing laws.

How Much Rent Are You Earning?

A big part of leasing your Sacramento rental home is establishing the right rent. Before we even begin marketing, we need to know how much we’re asking.

Tenants are educated. They know what your property is worth. Do you?

We have the data and the analytics that can tell us where your property fits into this competitive rental market. Let’s take a look at what you should be earning, and make sure your property is accurately and competitively priced for profit.

What Do People Think about Key Realty Center?

 

We have used Key Realty to manage our commercial property, with 5 separate leases, for the past 10 years. So when we wanted to branch out into home rentals it was a no-brainer on who we could count on. Not only did Rod Luman find us a great property, he got us a great price and has managed it for the last 6 years. We are happy, but equally as important, our renters are also happy. He takes care of everything from screening applicants, making sure we are in compliance with all landlord laws, and meeting the needs of our renters so that we can continue our everyday careers… We couldn’t be more pleased!

After working with a couple of poor performing local Sacramento area property management companies, I discovered Key Realty Center in early 2023. Key Realty Center stands head and shoulders above the previous property management companies. Rod and his office staff(namely Ana) truly understand the needs of home owners as well as tenants and do an exceptional job in terms of customer service and most importantly communication. They remain on top of any reported repairs, issues, and concerns. Their experience level in terms of property management consultative advice is very apparent. They are the best in the area - I highly recommend Key Realty Center!

I have lived in my apt unit 3 nearly 9 year. At that time its condition was terrible and I suffered awful stinky smell from the unit downstairs for years. Thanks so much Key Realty Center with new Manager Roy to work it out well and finally my apt doesn't have the stinky smell from downstairs anymore. Thank you so much....
