Advertise it where it will be seen by good quality tenants. This is the short answer. This does need further explanation.
We understand that every day that the property remains empty, it is costing you money. Your focus is to get it rented as soon as possible and not have to pay a Real Estate Agency.
How do you get it rented quickly, and save money?
You need to have your rental property advertised on the major Real Estate Sites. Realestate.com.au is Australia's Number One Property site for property seekers. Domain.com.au is a very popular site, particularly in some of the Southern States. These are the Leaders when it comes to sites for advertising Rental Properties. Other popular, dedicated Rental sites are Rent.com.au and Rentfind.com.au. ReDIY.com.au can advertise your rental on all of these sites, plus more.
Before you advertise the property, have a fresh look at it. Are there some minor repairs that need attention? Has the carpet been professionally cleaned? Is the garden tidy and the lawn mowed? First impressions count, so you want it to be appealing for the viewings.
Write an informative and appealing advertising text. Make sure that all the benefits of the property are included in the advertisement This could include the fixtures and extras, such as Heating, air conditioning, ceiling fans, dishwasher, entertaining areas, fencing, and car accommodation. If they are there, let people know. The location, proximity to public transport, schools, shops, etc should also be included. Make the heading of the advertisement an eye-catching one. It needs to grab the attention of tenants.
Photographs are important. They need to be of good quality and highlight the best features of the property. With the internet, looking at the advertisement is now like a first inspection. Everyone is time-poor. Tenants can dismiss viewing a property, based on the text and photos.
