How to Rent Your Home Fast: Seattle Property Management Advice


System - Tuesday, January 13, 2015

 

Renting your home fast is the best way to increase the return on your investment. We have some tips for you today that will help you rent your home to the best possible tenants right away. 

 

First, Examine Your Property’s Condition

 
  • You want fresh paint, exceptional landscaping, clean surfaces and attention to detail inside and outside of your property.


  • Make sure the curb appeal is working for you when prospective tenants pull up. Mow the lawn, trim the bushes and clear the weeds.


  • Once they are inside, wow them with nice floors, clean carpets, sparkling bathrooms and appliances that are spotless, updated and working well. 


Next, Price the Home Fairly

 

The amount of rent you’re charging for your rental home will have a huge impact on how long it stays on the market. If you want to rent it fast, make sure you’re asking the right amount. 

 
  • In a strong rental market, it can be tempting to price the home a little bit higher than what similar properties are going for. Don’t do it. Take an objective look around and compare your home to the others on the market. 


  • Instead of looking at what homes are listed for, take a look at the amount that they rented for. There might be a difference. 


  • This doesn’t mean you should under-price your home. Good tenants are willing to pay for good properties, just make sure you’re in the right price range.

 

Excellent Advertising

 

You can have the best property on the market, but if no one knows about it, you’ll have a hard time renting it quickly. Make sure you get maximum exposure by advertising it widely. 


  • Put a sign in the yard or the window


  • Get your listing on all the best online rental sites. At a minimum, your rental should be showing up in search results on Zillow, Trulia, HotPads, Rentals.com and Craigslist. 


  • Don’t waste a lot of time; list your ad, respond to potential renters right away and get them out to view the property before they move on to another.


Reducing vacancy and renting your property quickly will ensure you earn the maximum amount of rent you can over the long term. If you have any questions or need help getting your home rented, please contact us Dave Poletti & Associates.
