When placing rental ads for your property, there are some essentials you will want to include. Taking the time to make your For Rent ad as detailed and specific as possible will help save you time by increasing the chances that only people who are truly interested will reply to your ad.
1. A Picture
You wouldn’t believe what a difference this makes. Many people will not call an ad if it does not include a picture.
Granted, newspaper ads do not necessitate pictures, but for online rental ads and even ads placed on bulletin boards, clear pictures highlighting the best parts of your property are a necessity. Color photos are more appealing than black and white photos.
2. Basic Specs of the Apartment
You will want to include the number of bedrooms and bathrooms and approximate square feet of the property.
3. Monthly Rent
4. Amount of Security Deposit Required
You must also include how much of a security deposit you require. Again, you can put an exact number or you can say something like “one and a half month’s rent.”
