The goal is obvious: minimize time between tenants. But realistically, how should you do that? Better yet, how should you do that without forking over an entire month’s rent to a leasing agent?
Your best bet is to hedge your bets with a combination of three affordable and easy to implement marketing methods:
- List your property on real estate rental sites. A good majority of your potential renters are either Millennials or Gen Zers—so it’s safe to assume your target market will start their search online.
But online rental sites like Zillow, Radpad, Trulia and Apartments.com are crowded. You are competing with thousands of other properties—many of them commercial. Since it can be hard to stand out in this sea of opportunity, don’t stop your marketing efforts here.
- Get a yard sign. We know it may sound crazy in our digital world… but let’s face it: Real Estate and Property Management companies would not invest in signage if it didn’t work. You would be surprised by the number of landlords we talk to who only use a yard sign to market their property (and with success!)
This is where Peach Perch comes in: while you are setting up your other online listings be sure to make one on Peach Perch, too. With a few more clicks you can buy a Peach Perch For Rent sign for only $59.99 + tax and we will ship it directly to you. (Shipping is free!)
Peach Perch For Rent signs efficiently drive street traffic to your property’s online listing so you only hear from tenants who know all about your property... and are really interested in living there.
- Go social. In addition to online listings sites and a yard sign, share your listing with friends (on social media platforms) and neighbors (on NextDoor.)
We made Peach Perch listings incredibly easy to share: Click the "Copy" button beside the Listing Link on your Peach Perch dashboard… then paste it into your social media post.
Our hope is that with these three easy steps (for a combined total of well under $100 and less than an hour or two of effort) a well-qualified lead will come knocking on your door in no time!
