How to Fill Your Rental Vacancies Faster

As a landlord, you not only have to take care of the renters that you do have, but you need to fill your rental vacancies as quickly as possible. Depending on where you live, this can be easier said than done. Thankfully, there are many ways you can get your vacancies filled—keeping you afloat financially.

How to Fill Your Rental Vacancies: Improve Your Listings

If you are looking to sell someone on your complex fast, then you are going to need to do the digital listings right. Think about how fast food companies sell their food: They show pictures of it at its best, have great lighting, and describe it in detail. Similarly, you must do the same for your vacant apartments.

Hire a photographer to take pictures of your rooms. Be detailed when writing what your complex can offer. Be accurate and mitigate expectations so people don’t walk away disappointed or frustrated. Make sure you clean the apartments while they are vacant. These will drastically improve the chances you will sell quickly.

Target Younger Renters

While you are planning to fill the vacancies, it can help drastically if you select a specific target audience to talk to. Younger people are some of the best audiences for apartment complexes. About 40 percent of Millennial renters enjoy the flexibility of renting their home. Additionally, many of them aren’t looking to buy a house yet.

Keep this in mind when you are pitching to potential customers. Highlight the number of young couples in your building, show off the features you have, and use casual and welcoming lingo in your listings. These appeal to younger renters—especially if you have affordable apartments.

How to Fill Your Rental Vacancies: Find Effective Ways to Advertise

Next, you have to consider how your message is reaching people. Are you advertising in print media? If this is the case, you are probably going to have a hard time selling out your vacancies—particularly to younger people as previously mentioned.

Use digital platforms to your advantage. There are many different housing groups on social media websites that always gain the attention of people searching for a place to live. Websites like Zillow can also be a good place to focus your advertising efforts. Utilizing all the tools at your disposal will help you cast a wider net in the hopes that someone will be interested.

Before you know it, your apartments will be filled and you can rest easy. All it takes is some creative thinking and a strong focus on a specific demographic. It will work itself out.
