Timeline for Finding a Las Vegas Rental Home
The key to finding a rental house in Las Vegas is the timeline. There is a very small window. You cannot start your physical search too early – landlords will only hold the property for about 2 weeks. You can’t start too late – it takes a couple of BUSINESS days to “process” your rental application.
3-4 Months Prior To Move In: Ideally you should get set up on an MLS search even if you are months away from your big move. You can fill out our rental questionnaire and we can get you set up on your MLS search immediately. You will receive Las Vegas rental home listings that fit your criteria as soon as they hit the market!
4 Weeks Prior To Move In: You should pick out 10-15 homes to physically view and make an appointment with your assigned showing agent. You can plan on 3-5 of those homes being off the market by the time you put in an application so choose wisely!
3 Weeks Prior to Move In: You should be physically viewing the homes you are interested in. Once you make a decision……
2.5-3 Weeks Prior to Move In: You should be handing in applications.
1-2 Weeks Prior to Move In: Hopefully you have an accepted application by now with all of your diligent hard work you have put in already. The management company will call you to sign your lease ONCE you have an accepted application. At this time, you must have all of your negotiated move in costs ready to be paid at lease signing.
This time frame will give you a little time to coordinate utilities and movers! Good luck!
