You have carefully prepared your rental for a new tenant with a thorough cleaning, a new paint job and a few repairs. Now comes the time to write a compelling "For Rent" ad which gives potential tenants basic information, and entices them to lease your rental property. Provide the rental property information next to the "For Rent" sign so that potential renters can quickly view what the property has to offer and call you for a viewing right on the spot.


Step 1

Post a large "For Rent" sign on your rental property that is printed in orange, or red and black. The large size and the color should get the attention of future tenants driving around the neighborhood for looking for rentals.

Provide the full address and zip code. List the number of bedrooms, bathrooms and information about parking. All information should be in list form and not in paragraph form.
