Keep Rent Competitive with College Station Market Comparisons This Spring

College Station Rental Property with a For Rent Sign in the Front YardTo make sure that your College Station rental homes are leased out at a competitive rate, conducting regular market comparisons is a must. In addition to the multiple seasonal maintenance and repair tasks, assessing market rental rates should be on your spring to-do list. These are required for proper property management. It doesn’t matter whether your tenants are long-term ones or if you’re getting your property ready for new tenants, a market comparison can help keep the profitability of your investment homes and keep the rental rates competitive with other homes in the area.

Preparing for market comparison starts with acquiring complete information about your own rental homes. The information you’ll need for each rental home includes the square footage and the age and condition of each major element. From the roof to the appliances and everything in between, you need to have a clear picture of your rental property before you can be sure you’re doing a direct comparison to other rentals in your area.

After gathering all the data about your own College Station rental property, start browsing around that neighborhood and look for similar rental homes. In the same way that the asking and the final purchase price of a house can differ, so can estimated and proposed numbers vary from the actual rental rates.

A solid market comparison can reveal the rate homes like yours are renting for, and it will help you determine the best price for your rent. If comparable properties are renting at rates higher than you have asked for in the past, increasing your rent can lead to increased income without losing your competitive edge. On the other hand, if the neighboring rental homes are renting for less than yours, bringing down your rent will quickly attract new tenants and shorten the amount of time of the home’s vacancy.
