Need help renting out condo

Asked by Sharan, Gainesville, FL Mon Jun 27, 2011

I'd like to get a renter for August, I own a condo in Woods Edge at 1213 NW 55th ST. It's great unit, but I'm not having any luck with Craigslist. What are my options?

Help the community by answering this question:


Craigslist and many Internet advertising sites are sketchy at best. That is not to say that they are not effective. My experience has been hit or miss at best. I strongly suggest that you engage a professional agent or broker that will screen a prospective tenant and promote your apartment or house via the MLS system and other sites that actually work.

Hiring a profesional- does not cost- it pays.

Hotpads, kijiji, backpage, postlets, Trulia, Zillow.....lots of free options. Google "free classified ads" and it will give you a slew of choices. Every market is a little different as far as what works so it will take some trial and error to find what your best lead generators are.

Rent! Did you say Rent! Why rent when you can sell hold the note and make good interest on your investment. Theirs a lot more to it, but its not hard. I would rather hold a mortgage note than become a landlord on call 24/7. Think about and call me. That my opinion!

Hire a Realtor and it will appear on Sounds like you may be asking too high of a rent. This may be penny wise and pound foolish because you will have a constant turnover if your rent is higher than the competition. A slight discount versus your competition may yield you a higher annual income because you should have a shorter vacancy rate.

All the best,
