Sites Like Craigslist for Rentals

When you've got a rental property that you need to get rented, nothing is more effective than Craigslist. Your free listing is viewed regularly by potential renters and there's even an interactive map on the website so anyone can see if your rental property is in a location that will work for them. You can upload pictures, keep your contact information private, and get your property occupied quickly with a quality renter.

To maximize your exposure, you may also wish to consider placing your rentals on these additional websites that are a lot like Craigslist.



Zillow


It's one of the biggest real estate websites on the internet right now and you'll get boosts in localized searches for rentals with your listing on this site. Create a postlet through Zillow and you'll get syndicated listings across over 20 different websites, including an easy posting to Craigslist as well. You'll even be able to manage your listings on your preferred mobile device.

Trulia


This listings that you submit through this website will also update to Craigslist. With over 35 million users every month, you'll gain access to a comprehensive website that offers informational articles that will give your listing added value. Simply fill in all of the requested information in the 3-step listing process and you're ready to get your listing up on the internet.

Rentlinx


If you have an apartment complex that has unoccupied rentals, then this website will give you their basic services for free. You'll get your properties on over a dozen different websites, including Craigslist, and be able to lower your costs per lead. Make sure to stick with the basic services, however, as their premium services are either $50 for 30 days per property or $10 per lead.



eBay


This auction giant offers a free local classifieds service to let people buy and sell. The website is setup much like Craigslist, which means you can advertise in a specific section that best matches what your listing needs. You'll have to put up with a lot of advertising and sponsored links to get your listings up, but you'll benefit from the search ranking power that eBay is able to bring in. The one downside is that the site currently covers mostly metropolitan areas, so if your property is out in the country or in a small town, you may struggle to get quality renters.

Loqqad


This may be the resource to utilize if you have student housing that you wish to get occupied. There is a specific section for flats and houses and there is worldwide coverage of the listing on this site. It integrates easily into your social media presence and allows you the chance to reach a new market for your rental property.

American Listed


One of the easiest websites to use offers a family friendly atmosphere that offers lets you list in specific regions of the state. There is a specific menu section for real estate so your properties won't be get buried in thousands of others listings and you can even separate a listing for a room from apartments or homes for rent.
