Kathy, Renter in Alexandria, VA

what is the best advertising resource for me to find a renter for 3bd 2.5 SF home there in Las Vegas?

Asked by Kathy, Alexandria, VA Sat Feb 16, 2013

I am in California and was using a PM on my last renter. I want to be sure I market to the locals for long term lease.

Help the community by answering this question:


Craigslist is free and you won't have to pay a realtor. The terms of the lease can be mentioned in your post and just needs to be agreed upon in the beginning. The downside of craigslist is that it's not listed on the MLS system for realtors. The commission listed on MLS will help motivate realtors to bring more potential tenants, and thus you have leverage in asking for a longer lease.

My suggestion is to hire a Realtor. Yes, you can use the free sites BUT it appears that you are in Virginia. If you receive a call, will you be available to show it? This way, it is worry free. Once a potential renter is located the Realtor can assist you in screening this person and/or locating a property manager.

Contact me, I will be happy to list it for you.

Hi Kathy - Your best resource is the MLS. That way all agents will have access to the listing. I would suggest offering a tenant agent's commission of $500+. Most homes for rent have commission of $300 to $350 for the tenant's agent. By offering a little more, you will get more traffic than your competition. Your PM can stipulate the lease term to be 1 year or longer in the MLS listing.

Your PM should be able to take care of all this for you.

Please feel free to call me anytime to discuss your options if you are no longer using the PM.

Thank you.
