The key, then, is to find renters. Here are some ways to do it.

Word of mouth

Tell everyone you know that you are planning to rent out your condo or loft. It is quite likely someone you know – whether you work with them, go to church with them, or consider them your best friend in the world – knows another person who is looking to rent. And even if that person isn’t interested, they may know someone who is. See how many connections you can make by simply letting people know?

Contact professional management agency

Local colleges

Condos and lofts, given the low amount of maintenance needed, are especially attractive.

Large companies or businesses in the area

Big companies, especially, often help employees who are moving to the area find a place to live, among other services.
