A property management expert can help you put your rental property at the right price! There are several factors that go into pricing an investment property such as neighborhood, comps of similar investment properties in the surrounding areas, quality of the home/ upgrades/ and time of year. Usually the best time to get the highest rent will be in the spring and summer months as families will be wanting to move and be settled before the new fall semester of school.
