Hi - I'm a new BPer!
I have a 1bed/1ba 800 sqft condo in the Alexandria Virginia area. It's in a great commuter location and close to a Metro and military stations. My tenant will be leaving after August and I'm thinking about listing it without a realtor. I've looked at renterexpress.com to put it on the MLS because many good tenants use realtors.
I have another rental property (townhouse) in the area.
Does anyone have any experience with switching to DIY from realtor? Thanks!
@Janice R. I use postlets.com and military by owner for mine. However, for my house in southern maryland I had much more success using a realtor. The potential tenants from the realtor were much better quality than what I was getting online and from my yard sign. It really is area dependent as my homes in Florida are rented out very quickly without putting them on the MLS and only listing them on postlets. That wasn't the case in southern MD. Hopefully some other people from your area will respond telling you what it's like there.
Thank you for your suggestions!
