I've been relatively silent on here while I've been doing RE research like a madman. Taking action now! Here is some information about a duplex townhome I will be signing on shortly:
Address: 23665 NE Shannon St., Wood Village, Oregon 97060
Rentometer says a 2 bdrm unit should rent for around $860/mo and a 3bdrm unit should be around $1,220/mo. # of bathrooms unspecified.
Each recently updated unit has:
- 2bdrm + bonus/den
- 1.1 bath
- W/D Hookup, all other appliances included
- low maintenance front/back yards
- attached 1 car garage + off street parking
- new wall to wall carpet
- quiet dead end street
- minutes to shopping, Community College and Interstate
- preferably no pets and non-smokers
- Lessee to pay all utilities

I have a youtube video of my initial walk through here. If you watch the video, you might want to mute it because there are a couple of words of profanity. Also, skip to 8:10 as everything before that is a different duplex and the drive to the duplex I'm interested in.
My goal here is to put my feelers out there to find out potential interest and/or the most predictable rentable income. A friend of mine said to post a craigslist ad and see how much interest it generates.
Now for my question: What is the best way to advertise one unit of this property on Craigslist? What should I include/omit? What inexpensive change can I make to the unit to create more desirability?
Apparently in the news the other day, there was a bit about scams on Craigslist. How do I make sure my ads look legitimate?
I greatly appreciate your responses and input!
