How Fast Can You Rent My Home? About As Fast As Goldilocks Ate The Just Right Porridge.

I’m just kidding! The real answer, that most home owners dislike is, “It depends.”

That said, if you really need to have a number – a good property manager can get your home rented in 30-60 days depending on several factors.  The better the factors – the faster it will be rented!

Top factors that can make a rental home appealing are:

Price: It’s not a good idea to over-price or under-price.  Just price it right and you’ll get several qualified applicants to pick from!

Condition of home:  If your home needs repairs, or you are trying to get by “another year” with the old, run down carpet, burned out appliances or outdated fixtures – this will be the quickest way to deter renters.  Make your home “just right” after each move out –  – replace old carpet, upgrade appliances, paint, etc., do things to show you not only care about the home – but that you will care about fixing things when tenants call for repairs.

Strength of your advertising: With advertising – you really can overdo it – so much so that people get tired of even looking at your ads. Same goes with under-advertising – if you only focus on one or two venues to place ads – the odds of getting seen are slim.  Make your ads stand out and market enough to get the job done.

A good property manager: Just because a company is big doesn’t mean they are better.  Likewise, a company that is too small may not have the resources available to secure good tenants, advertise properly or maintain the home.  Find a property manager that is just right for you – one who knows what they are doing, one you can talk with and one who is upfront about their fees.  Chances are, if they treat you right – they will treat tenant’s right!

Gabrielle, I love your title! LOL!!  In good subdivisions 'round here, it is 30 days or less.  The rental mkt. is GOOD right now.  Lots of people with great income and credit moving here...but they may not be able to sell their out-of-state property...
