Has anyone else had positive results from or I see most of my competition has fled Zillow also and they are advertising on those sites. I donít like to publish the house number ( and I have to for those sites). I donít want to if itís not worth it. (by Ken [NY]) Posted on: Jan 14, 2021 2:58 PM

Put an inaccurate number on the website,if your house is number 42 put 142 then you can tell whoever you want to that a mistake was made and the address is really 42 (by Gene [OH]) Posted on: Jan 14, 2021 3:11 PM

I tried using last year for a two rentals. However, I seemed to get a lot of people responding to me in Spanish, so that didn't work well. I didn't rent either house through the site.

I did rent one property by having a sign in the front yard. I've noticed that people will look for a rental by driving through neighborhoods they find desirable or in neighborhoods where their friends are living. (by Lana [IN]) Posted on: Jan 14, 2021 3:20 PM

I find that at various times one site is hot and the others are not, and next time I run a unit it changes to a different site. I have never got anything from those sites but tire kickers. (by Johnny B. [MA]) Posted on: Jan 14, 2021 4:14 PM

Iíve used but donít get many leads through there. Iíve never rented to a prospect that came from that site. Local Facebook pages are my best method now. (by S i d [MO]) Posted on: Jan 14, 2021 4:36 PM

I get a few leads thru them, but they seem about as flaky as the ones from Zumper / Zillow. It's still a numbers game though, so more leads = better chance of finding someone good. (by small potatoes [NY]) Posted on: Jan 14, 2021 4:52 PM

My syndicated rentals publish to but i don't notice that it generates traffic. My last 2 I used zumper and I was able to list w/out the address and just find it on a map and put the nearest cross street. Have you used zumper? (by Ray-N-Pa [PA]) Posted on: Jan 14, 2021 8:26 PM

Some one told me that the CoStar Group bought these folks. Is that true? CoStar are the folks that also bought out Loopnet. CoStar sells research, so I am wondering what they are up to (by Shark [MI]) Posted on: Jan 15, 2021 12:40 PM

I was unhappy about the $10 per week charge on Zillow. I paid it, but also started listing on Zumper. I've gotten better leads and rented to good tenants from the Zillow ads. Overall Zumper has been a waster of time. In the big picture, $10 per week is pretty reasonable, although free was nicer! Those are the only two I've tried.

I found the sign up process was LIKE WHAT?? they call me and verified all this information and I was very uncomfortable With the process. But i went thru the process and listed a property, little or no activity. Now just today I get a postcard from them reminding me to list my properties. I'm not sure I will. Actually already put the card in the recycling bin.
