When you want to rent your house in Tampa Bay, there are three things that you must do in order to get a great tenant quickly
Price it right:
The price of your property is extremely important if your want to rent your house quickly. That means not pricing it any higher than comparable properties in your area. The rental market is very sensitive to price, so if in your neighborhood a three bedroom, two bathroom townhouse is renting for $1,600 a month, you should not be pricing yours at $1,700 or $1,800.
Broadly advertise your property:

Craigslist alone is not going to be enough. See our related blog for Advice on the Best Internet sites to advertise your Tampa rental home.
