Do you have a vacation or holiday rental house or property that you want to rent and earn extra money? With a little elbow grease and time you could easily be finding tenants and collecting rent quickly.
First you must touch up your rental property to increase its curb appeal. And clean the interior and exterior of the property to make it appealing.
Next you need to promote and advertise your house, condo, property, or apartment for rent. Promoting and advertising your rental units can help guarantee that your holiday or vacation property will be occupied by a quality renter.
You should advertise your holiday rentals wherever possible. You should stick with free sources of advertising and the best free source of advertising is Craigslist.
With online classified advertising you have the power and reach of free global advertising at your fingertips. With Internet advertising you can attract locals renters looking for a weekend getaway and international travelers looking for a temporary residence abroad.
Include welcoming information in your Craigslist classified advertisement about your holiday home and the surrounding area. This will help entice visitors and make certain that they feel comfortable and at home upon arrival.
Don’t forget to include local events, celebrations, clubs, restaurants, entertainment, or other activities near your holiday home that may interest potential renters.
In a competitive rental market, you can also include incentives in your Craigslist ad to help attract holiday and vacation renters. Tickets, gift cards, and vouchers help tie your classified ad with the local area.
