    How to Make a Rental Home Feel like Your Own

    At EGL Properties, we want our tenants to have great experiences in the homes they rent from us. For some renters, feeling at their own home is not always what they experience when living at a rented one. We’d like to share some tips and ideas on how to make a rental home look and feel like home!

    If you want to live the idea of a home sweet home, you need to define your taste and style. Decorating to your taste will be of great influence in your overall home satisfaction. You can start with the lighting. Place lights and lamps that fit your taste, warm lights can help you feel more at ease whereas cold, bright lights give it a more modern look.

    You can also paint the walls (ask your landlord for permission first) to play with the colors and decorations, making the space look how you want it too. You can also try wallpapers and textures to spice it up a little!

    Try art pieces and decoration! Place paintings on the walls (the holes are easy to fill once you leave) and decorate with pieces like corner or coffee tables, decorative pillows, sculptures, mirrors, rugs and much more. The most important thing is to invest in pieces that you know you will keep.

    Rental Owners: This Is How We Screen Potential Tenants!



    Our experienced and licensed team at EGL Properties knows how difficult it may result to find potential renters for our clients in our current economy. This is why we strive to search for the most reliable tenants that feel fully satisfied in our properties and will then give us and our clients the confidence of punctual and consistent payments.

    Our team in Los Angeles screen potential tenants by:
    1. Getting a background check. Besides meeting the prospective renter in person, it is necessary to verify if the possible renter has committed any criminal offenses or has a credit history of skipping rent.
    1. Verifying the information on the rental application. We want to make sure all facts are valid, like residential history, employment information and references. This will help us decide whether or not to rent the property. If necessary, we will also get a proof of income to make sure the tenant is able to afford the rent. Also, we always follow the Fair Housing Act as our ethics code.
    1. Getting a photocopy of a valid photo ID. We also get the driver’s license number checked to make sure all the information provided matches.
    1. With permission, get a credit check. This will let us know if the prospective renter has been consistent with payments before and if he/she has any financial obligations.
    1. Checking with the former landlord. Getting the name and contact information of the previous landlord allows us to get more insight about the tenant’s behavior.
    1. Including a written lease agreement with a code of conduct and every rule. This will state clearly what can and can not be done in our property ahead of time to avoid any conflicts or discrepancies in the future.

    At EGL Properties we are firm believers in protecting the right of our clients as well as the rights of our tenants. We want to rely on our tenants just as they rely on us. By being straight forward with all the requirements tenants need to meet, we assure a safe and trouble free environment for all!
