Here at TurboTenant, one of the benefits we built into our free landlord software is the ability for landlords to keep using it year after year. For example, did you know that once you create a property listing, you can save it, even after you turn marketing off? That means every time you have a vacancy, you can skip re-typing your property listing and simply turn your marketing back on with one click of a button. This is just one of the many benefits of using our free landlord software.

Today, we wanted to highlight some tips and tricks for those of you who have been with TurboTenant for a while. If you are a TurboTenant user, this guide will cover how to get the most out of our free landlord software with the least amount of your time and energy being spent.

Tip #1: Save Your Listings

When you create a property listing on your TurboTenant account, you can save this listing for as long as you would like. By saving your property listings, you can avoid re-typing your property descriptions each time the unit becomes vacant. When you fill the property with a new tenant, you simply toggle your marketing to “off”. (see screenshot below) This will stop the property from being listed across the web. Be sure you take down any Craigslist ads as well.

Tip #2: Update Your Listing

If you created a property listing last year and it is ready to be marketed again, start by updating your property listing. If nothing has changed, you can skip this step, but it doesn’t hurt to read over the description to make sure everything remains true.

Some items to look for:

  • The rent price
  • The deposit amount
  • Your pet policy

It also doesn’t hurt to add some new, high-quality photos. Perhaps last year you didn’t have time to take any good photos during the rush of creating the listing. Now is a perfect time to update the listing with pictures. Not sure how to take good property photos? Brush up using our photo guide.

Tip #3: Turn Marketing Back On

Once you have dusted off your property listing, simply toggle your marketing back to on. This will push your property listing out across dozens of sites, just like it did last time.

Don’t forget to grab the pre-written Craigslist snippet we create for you and post it on that site as well. Need help posting to Craigslist? Check out this quick guide to posting to Craigslist here.
