1. Write Details. Gone are the days of having to place an advertisement in your local newspaper and being charged by the word or even the letter. If you are advertising online, you can be as liberal with your word count as you want. This means that you can explain every amenity that is available with the rental, your pet policy, and still chat about the view that they can have from each different room. If you are advertising your apartment online, there really isn’t any reason for you to leave information about the place out. The great thing is that if you forget something, you can go back and edit the page as well. That’s certainly something that couldn’t have been done when everything had to be printed. This also helps people who may be looking in your area before having to move when they don’t have direct access to the property.
2. Take Good Pictures. I cannot stress this one enough! Make sure that the pictures that you post are clear, well lit, and clean. Having clutter or dirt in a picture is an automatic turn off and it is extremely difficult to get a feel for a place when the picture is dark or fuzzy. Ask a friend who is good at taking pictures to do it for you if you don’t think you can do it justice. Good pictures can go a very long way.
These are both simple tips that don’t need to take you a long time, but can make all of the difference in the world when it comes to someone looking at your apartment. Try these tips and see how much of a difference it makes in your response level.
