In case, you are too busy to handle your own rental advertisements, you can:

  1. Approach any property management firm to handle everything, right from advertising, showing the rental unit to prospective tenant, and right to selecting them. Further, the tedious chore of rent collection will also be done by the property management firm, even as they interact with tenants on all issues, right from handling repairs to others. Of course, all this comes for a fee, the same as if you had hired a real estate agent. If, your business is large enough to warrant services of this kind and you wish to off-load continuing responsibilities for tenant management, why not try out this alternative.
  2. There are many national and print magazines to be found on newspaper racks on the street that carry rental advertisements and cater directly to residential landlords. Usually, it makes sense for landlords with large multiple properties to have their advertisements in these magazines.

Once an advertisement for a rental property has been placed, the next step is to draw up a rental application, and then carefully select a tenant from the applicants. To avoid lawsuits when advertising vacancies and selecting and rejecting applicants, ensure you stick to Fair Housing rules and regulations.

That apart, landlords should make themselves cognisant with all rules and regulations before drafting tenancy leases or rental agreements. They must also take all necessary precautions, such as, tenant screenings, background checks on prospective tenants, including making certain all rental lease clauses are adhered to, as insurance for a litigation free landlord / tenant relationship. A simple click of the mouse and any landlord or property manager can visit for their tenant screening and background check services., the best tenant screening agency in America!
