Rented in 7 steps

1. Valuation

Rent your property for the right price

Rental prices are always changing. Aiming too low or too high can mean you miss out on valuable opportunities. With AKG Real Estate you will be provided with an accurate rental valuation up to date with the current rental market ensuring quick rental and a well matched tenant.

No need to waste time with approximate figures or inaccurate valuations. We advise an honest, accurate figure to get the property rented within the relevant timeframe for the best possible price.

2. Preparation

First impressions make a difference

Preparing your property for rental without the need for large investment is possible. For example, cleaning communal entrances provides a positive impression from the very first moment of entering the building. Removing clutter from rooms will help living spaces feel larger. Matching towel sets in the bathroom gives a sense of order. Arranging contents of the fridge and kitchen cupboards to face forwards enhances that sense of order. The little things make a world of difference.

As a final touch, professional photography will help present the property online. This is included within our rental package along with other goodies such as video tours and floorplans.

We also advise on how to best complete your to-do list regarding the legalities and formalities of renting out your property. The process can be smooth with our expert guidance.

3. Marketing your property

The right marketing reaches the right people

Your aim should be to achieve full exposure to the expat rental market. Our rental assistance ensures of this by using a wide range of methods including a direct mailing list to expat individuals and international companies along with postings on more than 20 rental websites such as the largest one, Pararius.

Also good to know, we’re a company run by expats and therefore provide a deeper reach, straight to the source of Amsterdam expats.

In short, expats will find us if we don’t find them first.

4. Viewings

Our late opening hours will increase opportunities

Flexible hours are essential to maximise viewing opportunities for your property. With viewings possible every day of the week, we do our utmost to arrange times when most convenient for you, the current tenants and any prospect tenants.

We’ve also mastered the art of qualifying prospects to ensure only the right matches will view your property. No need to worry about streams of viewers not meeting your property’s requirements.

5. Applications

All the paperwork in good hands

Anyone who would like to rent your property must firstly provide an application form and supporting documents. We then carry out our screening process to ensure sound character and financial stability. Once the applicant passes our screening, we forward the application to you for final approval. After receiving your approval, the lease agreement will be drawn up and we instruct moving-in payment to be transferred to your bank account. Lease agreements are provided in Dutch and English, are fully up to date to protect your property from any negative situations.

6. Completion

Expert assistance goes a long way

Time can pass quickly between signing the lease. The calendar will soon show the starting date is upon us.

Keys will be released to the tenant on moving day once payment is confirmed. We also draw up a detailed professional inspection and inventory report to record the property’s condition at check in. This will help to avoid any later dispute or contradictions at check out if anything is missing or damaged.

Before the move in date, you can also task us to prepare your property by arranging professional cleaning, provide support for repairs and assist in switching utility contracts to the new tenant. Overall we aim to provide a complete service so please feel free to ask if we can help with something.
