Marketing Your Vacancy
How PRANDI Property Management Markets Your Vacancy
Advertise, advertise, advertise–that’s the buzz in the PRANDI office! We’re always looking for efficient and productive ways to help our owners find qualified tenants for their quality rental properties in Marin.
First off we list your property directly on our website under the “Rentals” tab. All available units include a detailed description of the property as well as wide-angle photos taken by our very own Matt Prandi Borries. Our website also links with other popular sites such as Craigslist, Google, Yahoo, Vast, Trulia, HotPads.com, and Tenant.com (to name a few). These sites are wonderful because most of our prospective tenants begin the search for their future property online.
Other places we can utilize for additional exposure is the Bareis Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and the Norcal Bareis MLS. These sites are used by local Realtors® helping their clients find suitable homes on the rental market. We pair well with these local agents in Marin, as we never buy or sell real estate ourselves. By request we can also advertise your home in our local newspaper, The Marin Independent Journal. This is a paid advertisement and costs are incurred by the owner.
When prospective tenants call into our office, or stop by in person, sometimes do not have a property that will fit their needs in our active inventory. Instead of turning them away, we ask them to sign up for our “Notify Me” service which will automatically e-mail them a list of new properties that fits their criteria the moment we post it online. And we are constantly searching for new venues to communicate your vacancies to reach the most people we can—as it’s our goal to place a qualified tenant in your quality home!
To add to our advertising techniques, we know that photos and videos of your property are of the utmost importance to renting your vacancy. We have upgraded our camera equipment to use a wide-angle lens, which helps give a better sense of the property (both inside and out) by mimicking the same depth perception as the human eye.
