I currently use Zillow, Facebook, and Apartments.com to market my rentals. What is your best strategy to generate phone calls and emails for your vacancies? Thanks!!!
Facebook marketplace has been killing it for me lately. We have a ton of buy/sell/rent groups on FB and I post to all of the ones that I can find. I also syndicate through buildium to about 20+ sites. Zillow, trulia, apartments.com, etc.
Just make sure you have great pictures and a competitive price point.
Also, I've been told by several property managers that they do really well with yard signs for lower end rentals. I personally don't ever put for rent signs out because I don't want to advertise an empty house, but some people prefer signs to internet listings.
You can also use Craiglist, Zumper. Personally, I used Tellus App to help me post on more than ten listing websites.
My property management software pushes my listings out to 60+ web sites.
You can do the same by using TenantCloud or other software available to Landlords, usually for free.
Apartments.com's network and the Zillow network has filled our Rentals over the last couple of years.
@Jasper Cangelosi It varies by location. Where I am kijiji and used(insert town name) work best.
@Jasper Cangelosi . Zillow is awesome 👍🏾👍🏾
@Cassi Justiz I'm definitely going to look into buildium, I've never heard of it. Like you I don't put signs in my homes either, that's like an invite for squatters or an a/c unit to come up missing.
@Evan Brookman I'm going to check out that tellus app. That's new to me
@Nathan G. Thanks for the heads up on tenantcloud! I'm going to look into it as well. I figure the more eyes who see it and show interest the better chance I have of finding a great tenant
@Christopher B. I've had really good luck with them also! I don't go a month with any of my properties being vacant using those Services, I'm trying to cut that down to 10 days. That is my goal anyways
@Jermell Shavers Agreed!!!
@Jasper Cangelosi I have buildium because that's what I set up originally and have my systems set up through there. I'm in the process of switching over as we have tenant turn-over. I would recommend cozy.co or tenant cloud. They can do the same rental listing syndication for free, so you really don't need to pay for buildium. It's a great system, but it has a lot more features than most people will ever use. It's honestly not worth the monthly payment for most people. I do enough tenant screening and applications (and application fees) that it balances out for me, but I wouldn't recommend it if you don't do at least 2-3 applications per month.
10 days or less is a great goal.
@Jasper Cangelosi Check it out! Hope it can also help you out.
