Hey, BP. What websites does everyone use to promote their investment properties. 

I’m about to close on my first Beach condo ocean front and was wonder if I could get some feed back on the best website to promote my condo

Thank you in advance. 

I just do my FSBOs on  Craigslist and Zillow. Zillow has more quality showings I think.  Sure there are better ideas out there. I'm the last (besides Jay H :) person to ask about tech, though. 

Adding to Zillow Rentals and Craigslist(Hit or miss in areas due to bot ads) would be Facebook groups and marketplace 

I do not even have a website. These sites drive all the traffic I need

@steve Vaughan

Thank you for the advice.  I wasn’t aware that zillow had a rental program. 

Ive looked into VRBO  or Homeaway have you heard of those?

@Greg H 

Thank you for your response.

How well do your rental properties do under facebook group or the marketplace?

 I've heard of those for short term rentals (STRs) + air bnb. But I don't have any of those yet. I have enough stuff to furnish a place, so I may try it. Sounds like work washing sheets and cleaning, though.  I have a low nap tolerance. I'd rather take a nap than make an extra few hundred in SE income:)

@Steve Vaughan Yeah, I’ve heard really things about VRBO or HomeAway. 

Of course do your research. 

There over 16 milliion views on a monthly basis and 60% of that traffic is from the United States. 

Let me know if you need help with anything I would be glad to give you advice. 

I’m working on my third property currently in north Myrtle beach. 

Escapia runs all of the HomeAway, VRBO Listings. I use SouthernCoast Vacations to manage the listing, bookings, renters and property issues. They are very verse in rental and vacation rentals.

Make a youtube video on your channel that has already some videos. Do a walkthrough, make it look professional. Use the correct keywords. Not only is it extremely easy for someone to rank 1 on youtube, when anyone does a search on google, your video has a good chance of popping up in the  text only all same color boring google SERPs. Your result will be the only one with a colorful picture (the video thumbnail) that will draw a lot of attention.

And a video will captivate people especially if it is unusual aka ocean front scenery.

Do this with everything else people here have suggested.

Keep in mind, it is not a single page that does wonders. It is internet precence that does the trick. It is that YOU are everywhere on the webz.
