For the last 2 weeks, my vacancy got 1 call and one response from Facebook market.

Today, 3 emails, 2 calls, 2 FB market responses. We've passed the holidays, and the folks who have leases ending Jan 31st are starting to look around in my area. Maybe you're still buried in the 3 feet of snow, but chin up! Govt gimmie money time...err, I mean, tax refund anticipation loans will start coming in late Jan/early Feb. A lot of renters will have that once-per-year financial boost they count on for deposits, first month's rent, and a moving truck.

To quote RB, screen x3. Don't get impatient and take a bad tenant due to a prolonged winter vacancy. New tenants are just around the corner!

Sid - I'm noticing the same thing here. Not many calls for a while now. Last week, the trickle began. It's a steady stream now. With the way it's going, I hope to have at least a couple rented by this weekend. Once the W-2's start hitting and people file taxes, it should be even better.

Rent on!

We don't have any vacancies on the long term apartments but I have my first spring booking for my AirBnB. People start planning vacations right after the holidays.

I don't have any vacant rentals right now but I do a lot of mailings to buy houses and the calls have picked up since this weekend,between the holidays being over and the temperature in the 30 degree range instead of below zero I am getting busy again

Make a written plan, per property,

for the New Year.

How can I make these Cash Cows produce MORE ?
