Sure, housing prices are stable at the moment, thanks in part to the tax credit and robo-signing delays but projections show 2+ million distressed sales in 2011 and 2012. So long as we have such a high inventory, new home builders will certainly struggle. Many thanks to our friends at John Burns Consulting for sharing their in-depth stats every month. It’s interesting to see how many adults now think that renting is the safer way to go rather than home ownership.

Top 5 Websites for Advertising Your Property Rental Listing

As property managers, we work in a world where renters are looking for dynamic content that gives them more than the number of bedrooms and baths.

They will likely visit many websites, not just one, so you need to increase your reach over as many of the top websites as possible.

A vacant rental property is like a pimple on the complexion of your real estate investment business—it’s all you can think about when it’s there and you look and feel so much better when it’s gone!

5 Marketing Ideas That Will Fill Your Rental Vacancies Quickly

When you have a vacant rental property, it costs you money for every day it sits empty, so it’s important to reduce that time between qualified, paying tenants to the bare minimum. Filling a vacant unit with good tenants takes more than just printing up neighborhood flyers. The key to minimizing the time that your rental sits empty is by acting quickly and effectively in trying to get the property ready, market appropriately and attract prospective tenants who are ready to sign a lease agreement—all without putting your cash flow at further risk. Landlords Should Act Immediately Ideally, your current tenant will give you a 30-day notice that he or she is moving. Remind the tenant of your state laws that allow you as the landlord to do this as long as you provide proper notice.

How to Host a Landlord's Open House

Tenants usually “just need a place to live”, which is a far different motivator when compared to a Buyer who is “looking for a home”. I have found that tenants typically want to minimize the time spent when trying to find their next home. After all, most tenants view a rental property as a temporary home and are less invested than traditional buyers. Over the years, I’ve created something called a “Landlord’s Open House“, which is a hybrid approach, between Traditional Open Houses and Single Appointment Showings, that tends to work well for all parties involved. Summary When scheduling appointments for showings with potential tenants, try to consolidate them all on the same day – within 30 minutes of each other. How to Handle Dirty Tenants. Dirty Tenants are Risky Business!

How to Handle Dirty Tenants

Dirty tenants can be landlord’s nightmare, and oh boy, are they expensive! They can bring down the real and perceived value of your rental property. Unclean living conditions will not only damage the property, but they will attract bugs and rodents, and ultimately make it very difficult to re-rent. If you learn to spot a dirty tenant before they become your tenant, you will be able to save yourself a lot of grief. If it’s already too late, and your property smells like a trash depot, then you’ll want to take action immediately. What is “Dirty”? Generally speaking, Landlords cannot dictate the cleaning behavior of a tenant unless they have reason to believe the tenant is violating health or fire codes, or causing damage to themselves, the property, or other people. Examples of “Dirty Tenants” Have a Rock-Solid Lease In my case, and most do-it-yourself landlords, money doesn’t grow on trees – therefore we cannot afford to replace the carpet after every tenant.
