If you have a property that you are looking to rent out, you obviously want to get the right tenants in ASAP. This way, you are not left with a gap, but are instead making a profit every month. Here are four tips to help you rent out your property faster:
Target the Audience: First of all, you have to understand your property relative to the neighborhood in which it is located. If the property is located in a young city, for example, with a great deal of nightlife and you have a studio or one to two bedroom property, then you want to target those who are looking to live in the area strictly for the nightlife. What makes your property ideal for this? The walking distance to many of the popular areas of town? If so, be sure to highlight that.
Use Multiple Platforms: To ensure that your property is being seen by a wide range of people, you want to use multiple social media platforms. This includes Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and all other listing sites, such as Trulia. Using all of these platforms ensures that your property is seen by more people. Just be sure that you know how to effectively list your property on each of these sites since each one is different.
Take Good Pictures: The best way to capture an audience is to take good pictures of your property and use the best picture that highlights the best part of your property as the feature image. Be sure that you take pictures in good lighting, and if you are able to, hire a professional photographer who has the right equipment to take the best quality pictures. You can continue to use these photos every time you need to list your property in the future, so it's definitely worth the investment.
List Before It's Ready: As soon as you know that you are going to rent out your property or you know that your current tenants are going to be moving out, you want to list. Be sure that you make it clear when the move-in date is as well so that you aren't getting people asking to move in right away.
To get things moving even faster, consider hiring a property manager who can help you with all of the above tips and be there for showings of the property, signing of the lease, and more.
