    Obtain a Property Evaluation

    Before listing your property for rent, it's crucial to determine its rental value in the current market. At PSI, we recommend obtaining a professional property evaluation or a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) from our local experts. A CMA assesses your property's market value by comparing it to similar properties recently sold or available in the market. This analysis provides an accurate estimate of your property's rental potential.

    investment strategy

    Choose the Right Real Estate Agent

    Selecting the right real estate agent is paramount in finding suitable tenants and effectively managing your property. At PSI, our knowledgeable brokers are well-versed in preparing and presenting properties to stand out in the competitive market. Moreover, they assume the responsibility of managing multiple properties and looking out for your best interests. When hiring a broker, consider their reputation and trustworthiness, as these qualities contribute to a seamless and successful leasing process.

    investment strategy

    Fill Out the RERA Listing Form

    To list your property on the market, you must complete the RERA (Real Estate Regulatory Agency) listing form as the registered owner. At PSI, we'll assist you in obtaining the necessary permissions and documentation to get your property listed and marketed. By providing copies of your title documents and identification, we ensure thorough research and compliance with legal procedures.

    investment strategy

    Maximum Property Exposure

    At PSI, we believe in providing an unrivaled, all-inclusive marketing package for your property. Our team of specialist photographers and videographers will create captivating marketing materials, including interactive floor plans, high-quality photographs, location maps, and aerial views. Moreover, we'll feature your property prominently on top property websites, providing potential tenants with comprehensive information and a visually appealing presentation. This comprehensive approach significantly increases the chances of attracting the right tenants for your property.

    investment strategy

    Maximum Viewing Prospects

    To maximize viewing opportunities for your property, we encourage you to contact PSI's real estate brokers as soon as possible. Our experienced consultants will schedule as many viewings as possible, ensuring potential tenants can visit the property at their convenience. By offering flexible viewing options in the morning, afternoon, and evening, we provide a realistic chance of securing a quick rental with tenants genuinely interested in your property.

    investment strategy

    Consider Renting on a Short-Term Basis

    If your property is furnished, consider exploring short-term rental options. At PSI, we recommend this route as it can yield returns of up to 30% more than annual rental contracts. Short-term rentals are an attractive option if you have frequent family or friends' visits or if you intend to use the property occasionally. This approach offers both flexibility and financial benefits for landlords.

    investment strategy

    Attend Screenings to Stay Informed

    Staying informed about the status of viewings and tenant inquiries is essential. At PSI, we ensure that your property is listed on our website and other reputable real estate portals, maximizing visibility to potential tenants. Regular communication with our team will provide holistic updates, keeping you well-informed throughout the tenant search process.

    investment strategy

    Frame the Tenancy Agreement

    Crafting a comprehensive and legally sound tenancy agreement is essential to protect both landlords and tenants. PSI recommends seeking legal counsel to draft the agreement, which must be registered with Ejari, the system controlling and facilitating Dubai's rental market. By following these procedures, you ensure a stable and legally compliant rental arrangement.

    investment strategy

    Signing the Tenancy Agreement

    At PSI, we prepare a proposed rental agreement for your approval, including all necessary RERA certifications and attestations. Once the agreement is finalized, the tenant will provide a deposit, and the contract will be kept on file throughout the tenancy. This approach ensures a smooth and transparent process for both parties.

    investment strategy

    Enjoy the ROI You Receive

    Finally, with the right tenant in place, it's time to enjoy the return on your investment. At PSI, we encourage you to reinvest the rental income to create a profitable portfolio. Our experts can provide advice on potential discounts and investment opportunities that align with your financial goals, ensuring you make the most of your rental property.
