Why You Should List with Birmingham Home Leasing

Since Birmingham Home Leasing was established in April of 2014, we’ve never had an eviction. Since the pandemic began, we’ve never had a Tenant request rent forbearance afforded by the CARES Act or the CDC.

We specialize in placing Tenants with high Credit Scores and Income. Applicants must have at least a 670 FICO® Score 8 Three Bureau Average and document at least a 4 to 1 Income to Rent Ratio to be approved for a Lease.

Most Competitive Leasing & Management Service Pricing

Birmingham Home Leasing will place a Tenant for a fee equal to 50% of the first month’s rent. We provide Lease Only Service (for properties that rent for $1,500 to $2,499 per month) and Monthly Management is an optional service. Monthly Property Management is available beginning at 2.5% of the rental rate per month. To the best of our knowledge, we are currently advertising the lowest pricing for Leasing and Management Service in the Birmingham Metro Area. After having said that, we strongly recommend that you check with each of our competitors for the most up to date information.

Average Time to Place a Tenant

According to our internal statistics, it takes approximately 25 showings to lease a property. In those 25 showings, we average receiving four applications and approving one. In 2020, the average time that it took us to place a Tenant after listing the property was 25 days.

Service Area & Listing Requirements

Please do not purchase a property with the intention of asking us to lease and/or manage it without checking with us first. Birmingham Home Leasing will not list a property for rent before one of our Agents inspects it and determines that it is in excellent condition and will lease for at least $1,500 per month. Excellent condition is defined as a property with no deferred maintenance and would be ready for the sales market. Birmingham Home Leasing makes no explicit or implicit offer to lease and/or manage a property in poor condition or a property outside of our published service area. All properties must be single family detached dwellings with at least 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. Additionally, the Broker makes no implicit or explicit offer to list properties for rent that do not have a master bedroom on the main level, these properties will be evaluated for listing on a case by case basis at a discounted rental rate.

Current Market Conditions & Trends

The current demand for single family detached rental properties in excellent condition exceeds supply. Specifically, there is high demand for properties with a master bedroom on the main level that rent between $1,750 and $2,250 per month. These would be properties that sell for between $250,000 to $350,000 and are less than 15 years old and/or have recently been updated.
