When listing your property for rent, there are a few key strategies you can use to help you attract the best quality of potential renters, as well as a larger number of renters to choose from. Using strategies involving listings, rules and regulations, and information gathered from potential tenants will help you to know as much as possible about your future renters. The following are a few easy ways to increase your pool of potential renters in ways that won’t jeopardize your property or lower your earnings.
Use Multiple Listing Sites
By listing your property on multiple sites, more potential renters will see it and will be interested in contacting you about the property. More views on the property means more potential renters. As well as using multiple sites, be sure to use good quality pictures and descriptions of the property and write a unique and compelling listing. Using well written and descriptive listings will help renters understand more about the property. You can use the same listing on multiple sites, or you can add variation by tailoring each listing to each site.
Allowing pets will also open your property to the potential of more renters. With more and more people getting Emotional Support Animals, as well as pets in general, making sure that your property is already prepared for animals will help in that process.
While removing pet odor can involve an intensive cleaning process, you can make it worth it by requesting tenants to pay a pet deposit. Using a pet deposit will help tenants to know that while they are allowed to have animals in the property, they also need to be able to pay for any damages that may occur.
While listing your property, and while screening potential renters, making sure that you are specific about the qualifications and criteria beforehand will help you to attract the types of tenants you want. Questions involving pets, smoking, credit, and many others will help you to specify what you want in a future tenant and help people to know if they should inquire after the property. Specificity will also help you avoid potential future problems with renters that could’ve been avoided by obtaining extra information.
There are many ways that you can expand your pool of potential renters, but by using strategies like multiple listing sites, among many others, you will be able to attract the kinds of renters that you want to have.
