Landlords dread winter vacancies since there are fewer people seeking housing during this time of the year. Lets face it, there is a lot going on in December/January! Here in San Francisco, not only are people enjoying the holidays, many leave town to visit with family, vacation or go skiing. This phenomenon applies not only to prospective tenants but to landlords and property managers as well. Many plan their yearly vacations during the slow months. and as a result, turnarounds take longer, vacant properties will be held off the market (till the market gets better 🙂 ) or there will be fewer showings.
The fact that so many will keep their property off the market has become somewhat of a boon for us here at ReLISTO. There are still people who need a place to live but are searching in a much smaller pool of properties. We leverage this for our landlords and continue showing our properties throughout the holidays. The end result is a fully executed lease, happy tenant and happy landlord.
For the 2022 Holidays ReLISTO is open for business. Send us an email if you are in need of a qualified tenant for your vacancy or for year round property management services. We are here to serve.
