Asked by Alina, 94583 Thu Aug 14, 2008

We are trying to work with rental management company but they seems is not hurry to advertise our condo. If we do it ourself, what are pros and cons? Besides craigslist where else we should advertise our property?

Check and see where they have marketed your property. Make sure you have not overpriced. Renters are very cautious of landlords right now ,some have collected first , last and deposit then let property foreclose leaving tenant in a bad situation. We have seen and used many marketing techniques to rent in this interesting market, one month free, 99.00 deposit both have worked very well. Most important thing you can do is screen tenants completely. We manage several properties in El Sobrante and have not had a problem renting. Again check the marketing, condition of property and price are you competitive.

MLS and Realtor.com are places where your property can be advertised. Renters call agents for assistance or visit those sites seeking rentals.

You can get any potential renter to go to annualcreditreport.com and print out their credit report at no cost.

Thanks for suggestions. I understand that I can call employer to check employment but can I do credit check? I do not have any real estate license.

I'd go as far as employment check with the credit check just to make sure of the stability of the character.

Craigs List is really the only online place you need to consider. 90% of those looking for a rental will be looking there. Apart from that I would consider a clasified ad in the Contra Costa Times (all editions). That will get to the few that are not using the Internet.

You don't really need outside help from anybody to find a renter but make sure you get a credit check.
