Are you planning on listing your rental property online in 2021? If so, you’ve come to the right place!
Even though it looks easy, renting property online takes and work, especially if you’re committed to finding the most qualified tenants for your property possible.
In this article, we will share with you several tips for renting your Portland rental property online like a pro.
Tip #1 – Deep Clean Your Rental Property
Before moving forward to renting your property, the first thing that you should do is have it deep cleaned by a professional.
Deep cleaning is important because you want the pictures and video of your property to look great online and appealing to prospective tenants.
Tip #2 – Invest In New Pictures And Video
The first key to success with renting your property online is investing in new pictures and video of your property.
This is important because the last thing that you want to do is use pictures and videos of your property that may have been taken a few years ago and don’t represent what your property looks like today.
If you don’t have the desire to take those pictures and video yourself, you should consider hiring a photography student to short those for you.
For best results consider using 360° pictures and virtual tours. Most people will expect the best digital media so it’s best to focus on adding high-quality content that will help attract the most attention to the property possible.
Tip #3 – Use The Right Wording
When you get started with writing the rental ad for your property, the most important thing that you want to do is avoid using words that might paint a negative ‘picture’ in the minds of prospective tenants.
Some of the words to avoid in your rental ad include: small, cute, cozy, quaint.
Focus on using descriptive words that accurately will paint a picture of what’s located in the area. These words might include close to schools, walkable, pet friendly, and more.
Tip #4 – Market On Social Media
Last of all, but most important, once your rental listing is ready to market online, one of the best places to market that rental on the internet is social media.
Focus on marketing your property on sites like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
If you’re a writer, you may want to write an SEO optimized blog post about the property as well because this will help the property to stand out and be found by renters who are looking for properties in your target area.
