Avail enables landlords to create a rental listing that is published on multiple rental websites to ensure maximum visibility with minimal effort.
Watch a full video tutorial or follow the step-by-step guide below.
If you are just joining the Avail community, welcome! Choose "List My Unit" to get started with the first steps toward finding great renters.
Start typing the address of the property you wish to rent, and then select it when it shows as an option.
Our partner sites all require an exact address since they are map based. This helps the right renters identify properties in locations that are best for them and prevents duplicate listings.
If the address does not pop up, it may be missing from Google Map's database and will need entered manually. Choose Enter Address Manually so the true address can be completed.
If you were already setup in Avail, Navigate to the Listings Page for the desired property and Press Build Your Listing.
Listing Step 1: Listing Basics
- For studio apartments, enter '0' for the number of bedrooms. Do not leave that blank.
- If you are renting a room in a shared home, enter '1' regardless of the actual number of rooms in the house (that is the filter target renters will be looking under).
Listing Step 2: Rental Terms
Listing Step 3: Pet Policy
Checking none of the following boxes indicates that pets are not accepted.
Listing Step 4: Listing Photos
Without a photo, listings are easily overlooked by renters. It is important to provide at least one image of the exterior. Avail's research shows a drastic improvement in responses when 6 - 10 photos of the rental are uploaded.
Image files cannot be larger than 2.5MB. To reduce images when needed try taking a screenshot or run them through this free website prior to attaching.
Listing Step 5: Amenities
Select all amenities that apply and press Create Another Amenity to showcase features not listed.
Listing Step 6: Utilities
Listing Step 7: Title & Description
You are almost done! This step is probably the most important and may take some extra effort and a little creativity.
The formula we find most effective for a title is $[Rent] - # Bed/ # Bath in [city/neighborhood] with [unique feature/selling point]

Listing Step 7: Preview and Publish
Final Listing Step: Publish
Verify all details are accurate and press Publish.
Now sit back and wait for responses!
As the listings go live, Pop out boxes will link directly to the ad on each site.
If the rental is not leased within two weeks, be sure to press the Refresh Listing button to confirm the property is still on the market.
