Landlord and Tenants and the current rental marketplace

Good morning,

In light of the current economic crisis happening in the US and now in Canada, the rental market in Mississauga remains very tight. Most rental properties $1500 and under rent within a few days of being listed.

You are always safe when you have a rental property that is located near major amenities, such as The Erin Mills Town Centre or Square One or Heartland and one that shows well and is priced according to market rents. These properties tend to be the first ones that rent, everything else follows suit.

My experience also shows that similar to a property that is for sale, when a rental property shows well, it rents right away and at top value rent.

You cannot go wrong using an agent to list your property for rent. Reasons are many, but mainly because corporate relocation tenants and quality tenants all search rentals through the MLS and with an agent. Thus, if you are only trying to save a months rent by trying it yourself, you reduce your potential marketplace considerably. Quality tenants don't have time to scour the rental sections of the newspapers, they want everything online and my site and mls.ca provide this exposure for you.

Besides, how many agents do you know in Mississauga produce a virtual tour slideshow to market your rental property? Not many. Here is a recent example:

If you need help with your rental property, please send me an email.

Thank you,
Mark
