There are several different ways to market your rental property, and today we’re concentrating on how to market your single family home. We recommend simultaneously taking advantage of as many marketing methods as you can.
Online AdvertisingPlace an ad on Hotpads, Trulia, Zillow, and any website that will take a listing online. You can do this quickly by publishing them to many places at the same time. This will provide the greatest impact because each website wants to outdo the others. We have the capability of publishing everything to different websites at one time. We’ve had great success in doing that, and it results in getting more exposure for your property.
Excellent Property ConditionHave your house in showroom condition. Remember that you’re making a first impression, and you won’t get a second chance. You want the place to be in pristine condition when people see it online or in person. That also shows prospective tenants that you take care of the house and will expect tenants to take care of it as well and return it in the same condition when they vacate.
Pay Attention to Pictures and VideoToday, pictures and videos are a must, and social media is also important. We use pictures and videos and post those with our listings on our social media outlets as well as rental websites.
Be CompetitiveAnother thing to do is watch your competition. Make sure you’re not too far above or below comparable properties. Create a sense of urgency. Use gimmicks like - we will do x if you rent today. Ask potential tenants if there is anything that keeps them from renting it today. Ask if they have found something better. We want people to lease homes quickly. Our team is great at making sure you get your home rented quickly to the right person.
