Rental properties can pay for themselves if the property owner knows
how to get the property rented quickly. The property will cost money if it is left
vacant for long time. While it is important to get the property rented so you will
begin to get an income, this does not mean you should rent without first checking
references and credit. Unfortunately, there are renters who will not pay you on
time or at all so do not let the thought of a quick rent of the home allow you to go
against your better judgment. The following ideas should help you to be on the
way to renting your property in record time.
Appearance of the Rental Property
First things first - make sure your rental property is clean and free of debris. The
inside of the home as well as the outside should be attractive. Take a look at your
rental property from the street. If you were looking for a rental would you be
interested in seeing this property?
Is the paint peeling? Are there any broken windows? Does the lawn look
inviting or does it need mowing? If the home does not look like a home you would
like to see more of, then chances are no one else will either. Make repairs and
paint if needed to make sure the rental property is as attractive as possible.
Where Should You List Your Property?
One of the best places you will find to list rentals is Craig’s List. Place an ad here
and your phone will be ringing off the hook. Thousands of people per day peruse
Craig’s List looking for rentals. The contact can be email if you prefer so that you
may call them back at your leisure instead of spending the whole day answering
the telephone. Because rest assured, if you list a phone number you will be getting
calls for days. This is definitely one of the most effective methods you will have
when it comes to placing advertisements for rentals.

Posting Fliers is another Option
The local bulletin boards at your grocery store, convenience store and
laundromats are another option. This has become a way of finding rentals for
many people. They peruse the bulletin boards and look for something in their
neighborhood. Church bulletin boards are also a good place for fliers.
When making a flier, try to get the pertinent information as much as possible
onto the flier. This will eliminate calls from people that are looking for something
smaller or larger, cheaper, in another area and who may have pets, if you are not
accepting them. The price should definitely be included as well as the security
deposit. The number of bedrooms and bathrooms, if there is a garage or yard and
general location of the property you are renting should be part of the information.
Networking - Better Known as Word of Mouth
There is no better advertisement for anything than word of mouth. This is true of
basically any type of advertisement. When it comes to getting the word out about
rental property tell your friends, acquaintances, family and co-workers. They will
undoubtedly know someone who is looking for a rental. This can produce many
leads when you want to rent your property quickly.
Just remember when renting your property, take precautions to keep from
becoming entangled in one of the huge renter’s nightmares of which everyone
has heard or been involved. Unfortunately, there are people who will seem like
the best tenants you could ever want and they will destroy your property and not
pay rent. So taking the right steps to protect your investment will be the first order
of business in having a productive rental property and keep you from losing money.
