Posted Aug 3 2023, 21:03

Good morning team, I wanted to share that I recently purchased a house

in Palatka, Florida. However, I am currently facing significant

difficulties in finding a tenant for the property. The house is a

2-bedroom, 2-bathroom with 1200 sqft of space, fully furnished, and it allows dogs. The

rent is set at $2200 per month. I would greatly appreciate any pointers

or advice you may have to help me with this rental situation. Thank you!

Most likely over priced for the rent. I see two other properties there one price at $1800 a month and the other at $2000 a month and both 3 bedroom 2 bath versus your 2 bedroom 2 bath property.

Sharing the listing will make it easier for everyone to help you.

By reading many many posts identical to this though, I can tell you it is almost ALWAYS the dang price.

Also, depending on the market, a furnished LTR can often be more difficult to place a tenant in. Most people already have their own furnishings.

Good Luck!

 Did you ever find tenants to place in your property in Palatka? How has the rental market been for you? Looking potentially buy a property out there.

Hi Ian,

I'm very familiar with that market, and I'm a big fan of it. My mom has a 3/1 with a fenced yard on 10th St, and we received dozens of applications at $1,650. I feel yours is overpriced unless it's smack in the middle of downtown with high-end furnishing. 

Please share the listing so we can provide better feedback.
