That rather depends on where it is, but options would include;

Finding a local agent who can help and manage the process;

Setting up a website or other marketing strategy, and managing the process yourself;

Finding a specialist letting agent who lets a number of properties similar to yours, and has their own marketing system.

Even if you are inclined towards doing it yourself, I would suggest using someone else initially just to get going. | 01.04.11 @ 13:14

Hi Hansolo,

Here are some useful tips that I came across at Plazaestates website that would definitely help you to rent out your own property:

1. Consult local building and zoning authorities to see if any rental restrictions apply to private residences in your area.

2. Determine how much rent you should charge by checking rental rates of similar properties in your area in the classified section of the newspaper.

3. Advertise your property to attract applicants.

4. Prepare or obtain a rental lease for the property that spells out specific terms and conditions.

5. Search a good property agent that helps you in finding right tenants for your home.
