Things You’ll Need
Create a listing on Craigslist.org. Potential tenants can search for rentals several ways, including by neighborhood, price and number of bedrooms. The process is easy to follow, and you can post images of your property.
Make your own poster and place it on the bulletin board at your community center, with the center’s permission. Try out different fonts and colors on your computer, to make your poster eye-catching. Make a row of tear-off phone numbers so potential renters won’t have to dig for a pen and piece of paper to write down your phone number.
Go to Findmyroof.com and place a free ad. You’ll be asked to register, but it’s free to do so, and you can post images and display all the necessary information. This is a good option if you want to reach potential renters from a wider area. The site connects renters and property owners from all over the country.
Put a “For Rent” sign in the front yard, with a prominent, clearly written phone number. This is a good way to attract people driving or walking by. These potential renters may already work or live in the area, but are looking for a shorter commute or a change in location.
Place a poster in a college snack bar or student commons, if you’re comfortable renting to college students. Students are often on a tight budget, so be clear about your requirements for deposit amounts, cost of utilities, yard upkeep and trash. The more information you provide, the less time you will waste.
Try MySpace classifieds. These are free, and you can expect to reach a younger group of potential renters. It won’t cost you anything to experiment with this option, so there is very little to lose. This site also explains the process very well, so it shouldn’t take long to post your ad.
Visit Backpage.com, a bare-bones site that’s set up very much like Craigslist, with a list of cities and towns to choose from, and no ads. Everything is free, and if you can place an ad on Craigslist without any problems, you’ll have an easy time setting one up on this site, too.
