Hi David,You can directly advertise your property for rent on a number of websites including Zillow. Some of these sites will charge a fee and some won't. Beyond the fees it will cost you TIME. Listing your property for lease or for sale with a Realtor® shouldn't cost anything upfront (most are paid commission only upon a successful transaction close) and it will save you time. When I take a listing it we market the property on countless websites, use email and social media, print ads, local area connections and more. Listing with a Realtor® can often get your rental leased more quickly and for a higher price than most would get on their own. Hope this helps.Sarah
Yes, you can. I have found that it not only gives you more options as a homeowner but often someone looking for a lease will end up purchasing the property.
