Leasing Services

Do you have, or expect to have a vacancy? Road Runner has the resources and experience to lease your property to qualified tenants.

Marketing Survey

We will perform a rent survey and ascertain competitive market rents for any particular location. Setting the right rent will attract the best, most qualified number of prospective tenants, so as an owner you can enjoy stable income and low turn-over.

Advertising

Road Runner markets vacancies by the various means that have proven effective for your type of property:

• Ads on major search engines, online classifieds and on the Road Runner website.
• Ads in the print media (Pantagraph, Peoria Journal Star, etc.). Road Runner has relationships with these papers so that owners enjoy premium placement for cost effective rates
• Most importantly, and often over-looked, eye catching signs and banners are affixed on the property itself

Screening Process

Road Runner views tenant selection as one of our most important functions. Carefully designed checklist/applications are handed out during showing appointments to all interested prospects. Prospects can also obtain a checklist/application at our offices. The ease to apply has increased the numbers of applications we receive and has helped to speed up the processing time.
Once a completed application is received in our office it is screened for credit, rental and/or ownership references and income.

Lease Signing

Once accepted, the prospective tenant signs a lease which has extensive safeguards for the property owner and complies with all local and state laws. The tenant must provide a security deposit and first month’s rent in certified funds before a lease is signed and the keys turned over.

Accounting

Once the new tenant has signed the lease and funds are collected, a full accounting is prepared and a distribution is paid to the client.
