Tips For Writing A Good Atlanta Rental Property Listing

System - Wednesday, July 27, 2022

Are you planning on listing your Atlanta rental property for rent for the first time but you haven’t written your rental property listing yet?

Thankfully, writing a rental property listing doesn't have to be difficult, especially if you follow the simple tips that we will outline in this article.

Tip #1 - Know Your Atlanta Rental Property

You may own an Atlanta rental property but the big question is do you know that property? If not, you should take the time to think about some of the features that property has to offer a prospective tenant because your goal should be to write more about the property other than writing that it has four bedrooms and two baths.

Think like a tenant and ask yourself what features will prospective tenants be most interested in?

Does the property have lots of windows, wood floors, granite counter tops in the kitchen and bathroom or central heating and Air? 

These are some of the things that you should ask yourself before you write your rental listing because you want to include all of these features since one of these features may be the thing that attracts a prospective tenant. 

Tip #2 - Write For Your Audience

Are you trying to attract a family who would be interested in renting your property, young professionals, married couples, or active individuals? If so, you should also think about the audience that you want to attract live in your property.

For example: let's say that your rental property is located in an area that also has a great School District. If your goal is to attract a family to live in your property, you should write about how that school district is A-rated and it's a safe area to raise a family.

Tip #3 - Be Descriptive But, Use The Right Words

Last of all, but most important, when writing a rental property listing you should always try to be as descriptive as possible.

Instead of writing about the common things that the property has to offer like four bedrooms and two baths, you should use more descriptive words.

Avoid using word switch may paint a negative picture in the mind of a prospective tenant about what your property has to offer.

For example, some of the words that you do not want to use in a rental property listing include quaint, cozy, or retro. 

This is important because using one or all of these keywords could potentially paint a negative picture in the mind of a tenant and cause them to think that the property that you own is smaller, older, and not as appealing as you would want them to think that it is.
