Vacancies will kill your cash flow. Having your property vacant just one month can wipe out all of your profits from the year.  It is better to secure a tenant for $50 less than what you are asking than to have your property sit vacant for a month.  Being real estate investors ourselves, we adopted the philosophy of ‘keep it rented.’

So when we have a property coming available, we do everything we can think of to get it rented fast.

Our biggest successes have come from marketing our properties online.  This not only gives us a lot of great targeted leads, it doesn’t cost our owners a dime.

The video is becoming more popular on the web.  Videos are also being factored into rankings on search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing.

If you list a video with the area + for rent in the title, then your video link will show up in property searches for that area.

The actual ad looks a lot better and gives the prospective tenant a better experience in shopping for a home to rent.

The advertising costs to our owners are still zero, but we now create great looking video advertisements for their properties.  They are posted on the Relevé Property Management channel of YouTube.

Going forward, videos will become more and more important in finding and securing good tenants.  Sun Rock will continue to utilize technology to make your property stand out from the rest and eliminate vacancy.

Don’t Bank on a Growing Population

 

growing population

A cornerstone of the wisdom of the Rich Dad, Poor Dad books, was real estate is a good investment because the population will always grow.

More people will need more places to live and property will be more valuable.

The turbulent economy over the recent past has taught many that always never happens.  So what if the US has a declining population?

Fewer people will need fewer places to live and property will be less valuable.

In the book, The Next 100 Years, by George Friedman, he predicts a declining population in the 2030’s and 2040’s.  Venturing a hypothesis that the US will have to incentivize immigrants to come in and people will earn very high salaries because there will not be enough workers.

Friedman’s supports his theory by explaining changes in financial incentives for children over the last century.  People used to have a lot of kids because they needed them to work on the farm or in the factory, contributing income to the family.  Now kids go to school until they are about 25 years old.  The shift from income to expense gives financial reasons to have fewer children.  Add in the Great Recession and your birth rate plunged to historic lows.  The U S recently had the lowest birth rate in over 100 years.

When looking at a long-term investment strategy, don’t bank on always.

Finding a Tenant in Land O’ Lakes

Finding a Tenant in Land O' Lakes

Finding a Tenant in Land O’ Lakes

Properties do not necessarily have to be listed on the MLS.  The MLS would be more for prospective tenants that are looking for a rental with a real estate agent.  Generally, the commissions are not that good for tenant location, so most real estate agents do not pursue these leads.  Usually, it is for a friend or referral.  Overall, the MLS is geared more towards sales and for listing your rental property and finding a tenant in Land O’ Lakes, Florida, it is best to have the advertisement show up on many different websites.The MLS used to be the only thing out there to buy and sell properties.  But now with so many resources online, it is irrelevant.

Most of the sites are free, and there are sites that circulate the ads to multiple sites.  Most of our leads come from Zillow, Craigslist, and the company website.  Zillow is still the current king of finding tenants online.  Everyone uses it.  We post our properties to over 50 different rental listing websites. We get a couple of leads from HotPads and then some from local rental pages.

If your property manager tells you their advertising strategy is to list the property on the MLS, this is probably not the fastest and most effective way to find a tenant in land o’ lakes, Florida.
