As we continue to move through our “new normal,” it is clear that many types of business transactions will take place online going forward. This includes how we advertise investment property for potential new tenants.
But with so many sites available on the Internet, how can you narrow down the best ones? Here are three rental property websites you may want to consider:
- Trulia – With more than 35 different filters, it is easy for people to narrow down the ideal house or apartment unit that will best fit their needs and their budget. In addition to just viewing properties, though, Trulia also allows you to look at photos of neighborhoods and drone footage, as well as reviews that are posted by current or past residents.
- Rent.com – Rent.com is another good option for getting the information out about your rentals, as well as to show pictures and videos. This website provides two options for investment property owners – one for single family homes and condos, as well as small apartment complexes (with 1 – 19 units), and another for apartment complexes with 20 or more units. Depending on the option you choose, you can also have access to activity and lease reports, as well as tracking tools.
- Craigslist – While it’s not the fanciest website in the world, Craigslist can still bring in some qualified leads for your vacancies. This site allows you to post locally, so those who are looking for housing in the Orlando area can more easily pinpoint the options in that vicinity.
If marketing your rental property(ies) has become too time-consuming, it may be time to consider working with a professional property management team. A property manager can assist you with a long list of duties, including finding and screening possible tenants, responding to emergencies, and taking on regular maintenance.
