At RentalIncomeExpense.com, we are all about free ways to improve landlording. After all, our rental income expense tracking service is free for all landlords and property managers. So, given that, what are the best free ways advertise vacancies?
Zillow is No Longer Free
If your rental market is pretty strong, you might not want to pay to advertise on Zillow when your property can be rented using other, free sites.
Free Rental Property Listing Websites
Fortunately, there are many ways to list your rental property for free. Here are three of the best:
- Facebook Marketplace: Using your Facebook account, go to “Facebook Marketplace”. From there, go to a category called “Property Rentals.” There, you can easily create a new listing for your rental property. Facebook Marketplace is widely used. Best of all, Facebook Marketplace does not charge any listing fees.
- Nextdoor: Using your Nextdoor account, go to “For Sale & Free”. From there, click the “Post a Listing” button. Finally, choose the category of “Property Rentals”. Nextdoor is increasingly popular. And, just like Facebook, Nextdoor does not charge a listing fee.
- Craigslist: One of the oldest and most popular sites, Craigslist is still a way to list for free in most places. The exception is that apartment rentals in Boston, Chicago, and New York require a $5 listing fee. Outside of those cities, Craigslist rental property listings are free.
As you can see, when you need to list your rental property, there are some great free listing services out there. And, once your rental property is leased, don’t forget to track your rental property income and expenses with the free RentalIncomeExpense.com service!
