Tips for Successful Renting

Approximately four in 10 homes in suburban America are occupied by renters. If your property is one of those homes—or about to become one—then I encourage you to read further in order to learn about helpful tips for you, your renters, and the association as you embark on renting your home.

The first step when deciding to lease your home is to call or stop by Member Services at the clubhouse, where we can provide you with important information about what the POA requires of owners and renters as well as tips about the rental process that will be helpful, especially if you’re leasing for the first time. In order to ensure your renter has a smooth check-in with us, we’d like to ask that you do your part by registering your tenants (and this goes for guests, too) in advance of their arrival to Quail Creek.

Educating prospective tenants is another important step. Please be sure to inform them about the special considerations of living in an active adult community before they sign a lease. At least one person in the party must meet the age requirement of being 55+, and all parties must be related to one another.

Next is to make sure that your lease agreement is for a minimum of 30 days or more and is for the entire home. Renting a home and a casita separately is prohibited. Weekend, weekly, or transient leases are also prohibited. Please be sure you have a copy of the lease with you when you register your tenants.

Be an advocate for your tenants with the association. After all of the necessary paperwork has been submitted and approved, please make sure the tenants know how to access the fitness center, restaurant, dog park, and more. We have a lot of fun things to do at Quail Creek, with our goal being that everyone has the opportunity to participate during their stay.

Lastly, even though tenants have no vote on association matters, they are an important part of our community. Please join the staff and me as we make them feel welcome, provide information that will familiarize them with the association, and encourage them to participate in community activities whenever possible. Today’s renters may be tomorrow’s owners—or even board members. The more we all do to promote a sense of belonging for renters, the more positive and successful the leasing experience will be for everyone.

We can be reached at 520-393-5822, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. (summer hours).
