30-Day Rented or Free Guarantee
If we are unable to lease your home in 30 days or less, we will list your property for free!
How It Works
Every Northern Virginia real estate investor’s worst nightmare is having an unrented home for any period. Any day an investment property isn’t rented is negative cash flow and lost income. You’re watching money leave your bank account when a paying tenant isn’t in your property.
That’s why we guarantee to find a tenant in 30 days or less, or we will rent the property for free. Our guarantee gives you peace of mind that we’re working diligently to find a quality tenant in the shortest possible time.
Every home doesn’t qualify for the 30-Day Rented or Free Guarantee. Here are the conditions to see if your home qualifies for the program:
- The home must be vacant.
- The home must be ready for tenants.
- The 30 days begin from the day the home is move-in ready.
- The home must be a pet-friendly property and allow a minimum of 2 approved pets.
- 30-Day Rented or Free Guaranteed must be included in the original rental listing agreement.
- The rental price must be an amount agreed upon by both the owner/landlord and Ask A Walker.
- Owner must agree to a 1% list price reduction to go into effect on day 15 if no qualified tenant has been selected for the property.
19 Step Rental Marketing System
Included with our guarantee is our 19-step Rental Marketing System. This system ensures that property investors in Northern Virginia have a quality tenant in 30 days or less.

What If I Don’t Qualify for the Program?
If you don’t meet the qualifications for our 30-Day Rented or Free Guarantee, you can still hire us to market and find a quality tenant in the quickest amount of time with the least amount of hassle to you.
Here’s a list of some scenarios that do not qualify for the 30-Day Rented or Free Guarantee:
- Tenants are still living in the property.
- Property repairs performed on the property during the marketing period.
- Landlord ignores market stats and chooses a rental list price that exceeds anything the real estate market has seen.
- Landlord is unwilling to agree to a 1% rental list price reduction on the 15th day of the Rental Listing Agreement.

We charge one month’s rent for our 19 Step Rental Marketing System. There is no additional cost for signs, photos, or 3rd part website postings.
19 Step Rental Marketing System does not include the 30-Days Rented or Free Guarantee. There is a $150 retainer fee to participate in the 30-Day Rented or Free Guarantee program.

How to get started?
