How to Write an Effective Rental Ad

No Landlord wants to lose money or pay out of pocket to keep a rental business afloat, yet this can happen if you have a property sitting vacant for too long. Effective marketing is one key to renting a property quickly, and to avoid accruing expenses associated with a vacancy.

 

The right marketing copy works twofold: it gets a renters attention and screens out tenants who aren’t interested. If you’re creating your rental listing and stuck on a copy, check out our tips for writing an effective rental ad including word choice options that you can use when describing a rental property, along with a helpful list of “must-haves” for persuasive rental listings.

 

The Headline

 

A great headline is key to getting people to read the rest of the ad, so you want a headline that stands out. The headline is so important that it is recommended to spend half of the entire time it takes to write your rental ad on the headline itself.

 

Rentalutions suggests a formula that includes the key information tenants are looking for which is, rent, number of bedrooms, and bathrooms, and location, plus one feature of the property that is unique or exceptional.

 

Key features of a Rental Ad

 

Know what features tenants want in a property and be sure to advise those features in your ads. Make sure to point out both the positive and negative aspects to the apartment, so you don’t waste anyone’s time by showing prospective renters a property that isn’t right for their needs. For example, if a renter absolutely requires a parking space, there’s no sense in showing them your property with no off-street parking.

 

Word Choice

 

According to Buildium, you can create a visual representation of your property with the use of carefully chosen, specific adjectives.

 

Detailed property description

 

Make sure the details of the property are clearly outlined in the advertisement. This will prevent you from wasting time on showing the property to applicants who are looking for more bedrooms, storage space, etc.

 

Disclose all necessary information about the unit in the advertisement, and set expectations upfront about other requirements for renting your unit. Be sure to include your pet policy, and list other deal breakers if you have them.

Update Your House in an Up-and-Coming Neighborhood

Update Your House in an Up-and-Coming Neighborhood

The key to updating your home is not to let it fall behind in the first place.

 

Every homeowner knows that maintaining a house is hard work, and a few have the time, money or willpower to keep their home looking perfect at all times. When it’s the peak of the home selling season, it may seem like half the houses on your block are in pristine, market-ready condition, or they’re under construction and will look fresh and new in no time. How can you keep your house looking new and not the worst house on the block? It may seem like an impossible task, but it’s one all homes face eventually.

 

Take stock of your aging home. Even if it seems like every single house in your neighborhood has a fresh exterior or is newly built, the typical house has at least a few decades under its belt. Simply realize that chipping paint and dated entrances are key factors for renovations and increase your home value.

 

Attend neighborhood open houses. For your house to increase in value along with other houses being built or renovated in the neighborhood, it needs to be on par with the updates. An easy way to know what you need to do to keep up with your neighbors is to attend open houses when a nearby property goes on the market. Listing agents expect curious neighbors to pop in, and it’s a great opportunity to see what the interiors look like and compare them to your home

 

Get a green thumb. Don’t let your house get a reputation as the worst on the block by neglecting its curb appeal. Keep the siding clean and consider repainting, and maintain the grass and landscape to keep the house looking fresh from the road. Landscaping your yard also gives you the opportunity to select flora that works best for the climate, your property and the amount of time you have to maintain it.

 

Make minor updates. Keeping up with other houses in the neighborhood doesn’t mean every project has to be a big one. Small updates to keep you home looking well-cared-for, like fresh paint in each room or new doors on cabinets, can make a massive difference. You can even go as far as refinishing hardwood surfaces to achieve a new look at a far more affordable price than replacing materials throughout the house every time you want to update.
