Learning More About Real Estate

After finally saving up enough money to use as a down payment, I decided that it was time to hit the market. I met with a lender, got pre-approved for a loan, and then started visiting different properties. However, I quickly realized that I didn't know as much about real estate as I would have hoped. I wanted to find a great neighborhood and know what to ask the professionals, but I could tell that I needed a little help. To point me in the right direction, I started working with a great real estate agent who was familiar with the area. This blog is all about educating the general public on real estate matters.

Struggling With A Vacant Rental? Hire A Property Manager To Help With Marketing

by Nathan Olson

When you first started as a rental property owner, you may have experienced decent success with renting it out to tenants. This may have happened partially because the house was already in great condition when you made the purchase. If the property has sustained a decent amount of wear and tear through several tenancies, you may be having a tough time filling a vacancy.

To bring this problem to an end, you could put a lot of time and effort into learning about everything that you can do to increase the chances of renting out the property. Another more reliable option is hiring a property management company that can help with the marketing.


Marketing a rental is not just about making the property sound good to potential tenants. The rental may need to be worked on in various ways to make it look impressive to renters. When hiring a property manager, they may decide that a smart move is to work on the landscape with maintenance, additions, or changes. Sometimes all it takes is mowing the lawn, trimming the trees, and removing debris to put up an attractive listing and impress during house tours.

If you do not feel confident to make these kinds of decisions on your own, you will appreciate the quick and consistent action of property managers to market your rental property.


While making the landscape look great will help with renting out the home, most renters may also be expecting the interior to be impressive as well. A property manager will be able to point out the things that must be done, such as deep cleaning the home and changing the hardware. Knowing what works through analysis and years of experience gives property managers a noticeable advantage. This is an advantage you get to benefit from when you rely on them for marketing.


When listing your rental, you may take the best photos that you can and know how to with the equipment that you have available such as a modern smartphone or camera. But, these photos are likely lacking when compared to the photos a property manager uses to do marketing.

If you want to look at your own rental listing and be impressed with what you see, you should check out different property management companies and prioritize the ones with the most impressive listings, because this will give you plenty of confidence when it comes to hiring one.

Marketing your rental will become easier and more successful when you hire a property manager from a company like MacPherson's  Property Management
