Rental Tips:

Where is the rental pricing model changing to, is a question I asked David Borden from freerentalsite.com. [This might be of interest to those that might want to post to RentVine.com.]

David Borden: I think that everyone knows that prices get driven down all the time. It is less expensive to host your web site and it is less for storage and less for bandwidth, so I think the rental price for advertising rentals online is going to go down. I think the appropriate model is free, there are plenty of sites out there that are free yet the site still makes plenty of money. Some sites see 65% of the revenue come from 35% of our upgrades and that is already after the paid a price to get on the site. So that limits about 90% of the content you are going to get. If you didn't hear about Craigslist last year I am sure you have heard about it by now. There is a site that works that provides quality leads for landlords and property managers and it is free. It does have its problems that go along with it, but for the most part it provides value to everyone that uses it.

The bottom line is that it is easier to use than a newspaper and cheaper. Anyone that wants to compete against Craigslist has to be free. You will still get 70% of the people out there that still will not pay for a [Portland OR] rental listing which is fine, but you will get others to help support the site. If I am a tenant or someone looking for a [Portland] rental and you only have 5% of the listings, I do not consider you a valid marketplace. So I think you have to offer a service that lets people post rentals for free. It's gotta be free. There are always people that don't care what it costs, as long as it gets rented and rented fast! Price is not as big of an object to them as performance is. I want the guy that understands it is costing him $100 in lost rent as it sits vacant and he is willing to move is property to the top of the list to get more eyeballs and leads to his rental. The guy that pays will get it rented fast the then the guy that wants the listing for free. But I want both of those guys because all the rentals have to be there for the best experience for the user. And the site has to be pleasing to the eye and Craigslist is not. I think everyone is going to go to free at some point. It will be a battle on who provides the best experience. If you have the marketplace the landlords will have to post there, they will not have a choice. Because the fact is the more you market the rental the fast you get it done. Assuming that you priced it correctly and everything else.
