You should also try http://www.rentitinamerica.com is a newer website that has been growing fast and is also free. The best part is that your property will not be removed after a month or two. You will be able to keep the property listed until you tell it to be removed. Its great for Landlords and Property Managers because there is no limit to how many properties you can advertise for free.

I think one of the best sites out there right now for landlords is http://www.RentDigs.com and best of all is their price - FREE. They'll even post it to a few other sites for you as well. I've had really good luck with them. They have been around for a few years now and seem to get bettter every year when my leases come up.

Hope that helps!

For New Jersey, you should consider becoming part of the NJ Apartment MLS located here: http://www.gardenstateapartments.com/

The site received the New Jersey Small Business Success Award and was featured in NJ Biz Magazine for innovation in the state. The system provides great vacancy advertising, discounts to local vendors, best practices for local landlords, education / seminars, and much more. It also has some strong local relationships with different colleges, hospitals, and major employers.

The site continues to expand very rapidly and offers a very 'local' flavor since they are New Jersey based. Unlike a traditional MLS, the system is open to all real estate professionals, landlords, apartment communities and property managers.

Definitely worth adding into your marketing mix when trying to fill a vacancy in New Jersey and good to have book-marked when you need a quick reference as an owner.

Hope that helps. Good luck!

Hi Airachcaz, the best place is Realtor.com and the Multiple Listing Service which you can reach with the assistance of a Realtor. Whether promoting a rental or property for sale, maximizing your exposure is key.

If commission is a sticking point, you can always begin with the arrangement that the tenant pays commission, which is generally 1 months rent, split equally between listing and renting agents. Of course, offering to pay the commission either in full or as a split (ie, 50/50) will enhance the likelihood of prompt success.

An agent can assist you with determining the convention on the commission in the community in which you are renting. If most are "landlord pays" or splits, then you may put yourself at a disadvantage if you push the commission back entirely on the tenant. Remember too that you only pay the commission if the agent successfully rents the apartment.

I'm finding that rentals are moving really well - especially newer condos/townhomes in good price points. I've got several clients who are looking now in Somerset, Morris, Union and Hunterdon counties. Just this week, two units we called on had multiple offers in a matter of days. My take on it is that a brisk rental market is all the more so as uncertain buyers who are on the fence decide to rent for a while to allow the market to play itself out.

You can find me online at http://www.feenick.com - I'd be happy to assist you in getting rentals on Realtor.com, Garden State MLS and Middlesex MLS.

Best,
