Tips for Effective Advertising
Listings on the website are organized by type (room for rent, apartment for rent, house for rent) and also by location within the city.
The costs listed are generally per room/per month; the length of lease generally ranges from terms 10 to 12 months.
It is important to provide a reasonable description of the accommodations you are renting. Mentioning points like proximity to bus routes, amenities, separate entrances, or other "value-added" inclusive items like phone, cable, or internet can go a long way towards helping your listing stand out. Providing pictures of the place you are renting can also really help to get your ad recognized!
It is most common for student leases to conclude on April 30th or August 31st as this schedule compliments that of the academic calendar. Landlords will then have vacancies for new tenants (generally for May 1, or September 1) at a more "natural" time for students to move. Remember that students are often looking for accommodations in advance, generally starting in February for May 1st occupancy, and in June for September 1st occupancy.
