We always believe that real estate is for the huge houses that are bought and purchased with huge sums of money. Furthermore, we assume that the real estate as a business belongs to those who can invest a lot of money. This is true in a way, but the fact also remains that being a real estate rental agent, you do not need to have a lot of money, especially when you are a real estate rental agent!
This has been a happening business because there is a huge demand for it through the renting of apartments for those who prefer to stay put in a particular place for only a limited period of time and many of us consider renting an apartment for short stays such as vacations and business stays is the easiest, wisest and viable option.
How to attract Tenants
Okay now that you are into this business and things have not been going great guns! You have been wondering why but you have not been able to rope in parties who are willing to take the apartment. You are running short of time for you are seeking tenants for a short stay until the owners of the apartment come back after the vacation. So when you are really desperate in such situations, use the classifieds for your advantage.
It does not take more money for you to post your ad on classifieds. As soon as someone wants you to rent their house out to a tenant, post it on the classifieds and depending upon various factors, responses could be overwhelming. You can immediately start showing the tenants around the apartment and get them to pay the rent and also your fee in quick time. However, getting many responses from classifieds does not succeed alone.
You have to convert them into real time business where actual transactions take place. You must also have the pride of having finished a deal every now and then which is one of the most useful ingredients of success.
Classifieds Fails! Then try the internet!
The internet classifieds is not much of a guarantee either when you fail both in the web as well as the print medium. You cannot let that happen. You have to convert your prospects into customers and also potential customers into real customers who transact money. This requires patience and skill. But the internet is also a good source of finding new customers.
