For written directions read the video transcript below:
My current tenants have decided to move out of state so I need to go ahead and re-list my property to find new tenants. I have to decided to advertise this property on Avail.
I have logged into my account. I will input the property address by typing the full address and as I type Avail is trying to populate the address below. Once I see this address available I will go ahead and click the address and this auto-fills the remainder of this address for me. If this property has a unit number I can input that within the unit field and click “Add Building”.
I can navigate to the “listing” tab to start the listing creation process. I will click the green button that reads “build your listing”.
I will start with the basics on the property such as number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and sq footage. I can also view all the partner sites that my listing with syndicate to such as Zillow, Trulia, and Hotpads to name a few. I will save this information by clicking “next” on the listing page.
Next I will input rental terms such as rent amount, security deposit amount, move-in date, move-in fee and parking fee. If I need any assistance pricing my property Avail does offer a detailed rent analysis report that assists with setting a competitive rent price based on area trends and benchmarks for only $19.99. I can view an example of this report by clicking below, otherwise I can click “next”.
The pet policy is next. I can select if I do or do not allow pets within the property.
Next, I can upload photos within the listing. Avail recommends uploading at minimum 10 photos into this listing as this is what really sells the property. I can either drag and drop photos into this form or upload and attach them from my computer or phone files. Avail also provides a well written guide on how to take attractive home photos.
After uploading the photos I am able to select the amenities and utilities offered on the property.
I am able to create a title and description for my listing in the next field. Avail provides guidance in how to successfully create a headline. Within the description I can select the description builder which will give me example sentences to guide me in writing my description. I can select these and then gear them towards my property. If I needed further guidance I can read the Secrets of Writing Rental Listings blog post.
Avail provides immediate feedback on the listing and how to better improve it to attract more leads. Once everything has been corrected, I can click “preview listing”. I can see here that I am able to make direct edits to this page if need be. Once I have reviewed everything here, I can click “publish” which will syndicate this listing to all our partner sites.
Great! I can see that this listing has been published.
