If you own rental property in Orlando or the surrounding Central Florida area, then you know that you can be up against some pretty steep competition when you are marketing these units for new tenants.
With the Sunshine State being one of the top rental markets in the country, then, how can you focus on finding new tenants to fill the vacancies that you have?
There are actually several things that you can do in order to set yourself – or better yet, your properties – apart from all of the other listings that are out there in the market place, such as:
- Include a copy of the property’s floor plan. Your potential tenants will have a number of different needs – and one of the first things they will look for is whether or not the size and the layout of the property will be able to meet those requirements. And, while providing the floorplan may weed out some possible renters, it can also bring in those who know the property may be ideal for them.
- Provide information on your pet policy. For many people, four-legged friends are also considered members of the family. With that in mind, be sure that you provide details on your pet policy.
- Add good quality photos. Most rental property owners make use of the Internet in marketing their units. So, adding good quality photos to your listing is essential. Here, be sure to include shots of as many rooms as possible, as well as photos of any additional amenities like a back yard swimming pool. Remember, pictures can be worth a thousand words.
If the marketing and maintenance of your rental properties is taking up too much time, it may be wise to consider turning over those duties to a professional property manager. For more details on how working with a property management team can benefit you, give us a call today.
