Rental & Leasing Services
We lease and manage all investment property types: condominiums, single-family homes, townhomes, and villas. We will assist our clients in evaluating the property to be rented and we can suggest ways to prepare your property for maximum showing appeal and tenancy. We can also provide a comparative market analysis of other rentals in the surrounding area. Once you are ready to rent the property, Salefish Properties will enter it into the Regional Multiple Listing service (MLS) where it can be viewed by all Realtor® members in Palm Beach, Broward, Dade, St. Lucie, and Martin counties. If allowed in the community and approved by the client, we will also place our company sign in the yard to attract drive-by traffic. Additional advertising can be arranged if a client desires. All calls and showings are handled by our office staff. The listing is also available to the general public at Realtor.com.
When a prospective tenant is identified, they are required to complete an extensive application and provide employment and tenancy references. All applicants over the age of 18 are screened carefully; the following investigations are made prior to approval:
- Multi-state sex offender list
- County records for evictions, foreclosures, bankruptcy
- Ownership/Rental history
- Terrorist watch list (federally-mandated)

Once a prospective tenant has been qualified, a deposit is provided by the prospective tenant and an Agreement to Lease is signed. The move-in date is also determined at that time. The Salefish Properties lease has been prepared by an attorney and includes all items and disclosures required by law. During the lease signing, we review each section of the lease with the tenants in person. The tenant also receives the Salefish Properties Tenant Reference Guide which covers all aspects of their tenancy, as well as work order requests and other forms.
During the move-in appointment, we provide the tenant with keys to the home and assign other remotes or items, as needed. We orientate the tenant with the property, collect any balances due, and review the tenant responsibilities for the property, such as changing the air conditioning filters monthly. The interior and exterior condition of the home is documented and signed off by all adult tenants, usually at move-in. We strive to establish a positive relationship with each resident and provide them with all the information they require for a successful tenancy initially, so it reduces the issues and phone calls later.
