    Hi All,

    Just wanted to ask, what's the best way to search for property that you want to rent out and what is the best method of advertising your rental property to gain the most out of it?

    In my opinion, online marketing is the best way to advertise your rental property and there are a lot of options too. You can post your requirements on Facebook and Twitter, or use visual methods through Picasa, Flickr or Photobucket. You can also get imaginative by putting up relevant videos on YouTube.

    These methods show results but are pretty cost-effective as well. Also, you must seek the help of a professional if you are not quite sure of doing it all on your own. This can get your job done faster and also help you learn a few things.

    If you are going to search any kind of information including property, you should need to describe your requirements and with that you can get the best answers. Advertise to rental properties is not easy as we think, it is completely required a good planning and strategy. To target local customers, you should need to advertise your property in the local news papers as well need to get local advertising agents services.

    Hi, Sunny! In my opinion the best way to search for property that you want to rent is to look through different classifieds where you’ll be able to see different offers and compare the prices. Talking about advertising your rental property… Just the same way. You need to make photos of this apartment or house, no matter what you are renting and post them at various websites. You should know that it is so important to make your rental property ready for renting! It means that you need to create warm atmosphere, heat, electricity, the Internet access, TV, comfortable furniture etc. As you know, when furnishing your rental apartment, each room needs to have basic and functional furniture. The kitchen also should have basic appliances, including a refrigerator, stove, microwave and dishwasher. If you have amenities (pool, gym etc.) it usually includes the maintenance of those things.

    First of all, you need to do your research about your local marketplace to see what is a "fair rent". Then, when you start to receive interest, it is vital that you showcase your property to its maximum potential.

    The best way to search for a property is through real estate agent. You can specify all your requirements and they will help you to find a suitable property as per your requirement.

    Buying the first property that takes your fancy instead of spending the time to carefully consider what you want or, more importantly, need, can be a disaster. It is important to work out what you are looking for in a property and why, then research the market for properties that best suit your needs. Is it your first home? Do you want to live in an apartment or a house? Or is this to be an investment property?

    If you are looking for property, then you should hire real estate agent, because agent has all the knowledge and experience about real estate market and he will guide you about the property better than anyone else..

    I think the online options allow you to create a short list of properties which meet your criteria but in the end you will need to visit a property before investing money - in my view.

    Hi Sunny,

    The best way to search for the property is do a research using a targeted set of keywords. For example, "properties for rent in xxx location". You can also search it through classified posting websites.

    In terms of advertising rental property, there are various techniques you may want to go for organic or paid campaigns such as Google Adword Campaigns, Facebook Ad Campaign. But before you do that, do a keyword research and competition analysis first.

    Hi Sunny,

    Here are few tips for finding rental properties:
    1. Know how to rental websites work. There are many local sites for rentals, which can be found through a simple Web search.
    2. Word of mouth can be powerfulIn addition to surfing the web for listings, tell friends and family members that you’re looking for a place, too.
    3. Look beyond the rental listings. Start looking at the for-sale listings. People typically aren’t selling these days unless they have to, so they may be willing to rent it out to you instead.
    4. Assess whether rents are fairAfter finding a place you’re interested in, search comparable rentals to make sure that the rent price is competitive with the rest of the market.
    5. Go ahead and flaunt your good credit. If you have good credit, mention that to the landlord.

    For promoting your rental properties I would recommend using online marketing. For instance facebook and linkedin are two great places to promote. Paid marketing will surely bring your more conversion if designed properly. Posting on groups and communities is also a great idea. Hope this helps. Thanks.
