For landlords, rental properties draw small margins, so it’s important to set the rent at a proper price. The best place to start is to scope out other rental properties in the neighborhood to determine a competitive starting point. Then, landlords should use online tools to compare their property to others. Certain properties and areas will have small pockets of higher-priced housing, so landlords should do as much research as possible before setting the price to turn the highest profit.
