Landlords are always asking us at Residential Property Management in Portland, how we go about marketing rental properties. The goal is to ensure your property gets the maximum exposure when you’re looking for qualified tenants.
Writing an Advertisement
First, an ad needs to be written. It should describe your property in the best possible terms, presenting an accurate and appealing explanation of what your house or unit has to offer. Marketing photos must be included, and they have to be good pictures that show the best features of your home. The goal with this ad is to motivate potential tenants to get in touch and schedule a showing at your property.
Once your ad is ready, the best place to list it is on the Internet. One of the biggest marketing advantages we can give you is to syndicate your rental listing across the entire Internet. At Residential Property Management, we market your property on our company website and on Craigslist. We also subscribe to services that will list your home on many other rental websites, including Zillow.com, Trulia.com, Rentalhomesplus.com, Hotpads.com and Homes.com. These are the sites that the best tenants are using, so you want to make sure your home is listed there.
Thanks to efficient new technology, renters can now schedule a viewing appointment with the press of a few buttons on their smartphones. It’s no longer necessary to call the landlord and arrange a time to see the property.
You’ll find that your home has the potential to rent a lot faster with the broad Internet marketing exposure it gets as well as the convenience of scheduling a viewing appointment 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
