How to best check vacancy rates

4 Replies

Hey everyone, what are the best resources you have come across to check vacancy rates in an area you own in or a perspective area you are thinking of buying in?

Asking local landlords is always good and I try to do that often. Are there other resources out there that can help?

Thanks!

There is a program we use at our office called RENT RANGE and when we put it the address it pulls the local comps and also gives us a local vacancy rate. It usually gives a pretty accurate suggested rental amount. I still check the local listings to confirm the market rate rent but it is usually pretty close. good luck I hope this helps.
