Advertising Property that I haven't closed on yet...

7 Replies

Under contract on a property in my local area and want to rent out shortly after closing in a few weeks. What is the best way (craigslist, etc) to go about advertising for a new investor?

 Agreed. Lots of things can go wrong between now and closing. There's always the possibility of not owning the property at all. 

I would start advertising a week or two (depending on demand in your market) before closing.  Start your prescreening and have a few prescreened applicants lined up for a showing the day after you close.
