Adding your rental is the first step to start streamlining your rental process! Once you add your rental, you'll be able to market on dozens of rental listing websites and accept applications online.

There are two ways to add your property:

On the web:

Step 1 - Click Let's Get Started.

Log in to your TurboTenant account and click Let's Get Started.

Step 2 - Select the type of rental you are creating.

Start by selecting the type of rental you will be posting. If you have multiple units in a building, you can select the correct type to get started with, or you can select your single-family residence. Check out more about creating multi-unit properties. From this page, you can also choose if your property will have room rentals.

For this article, we will be using a Single Family House as an example.

Step 3 - Add rental details, the description, and more!

TurboTip: In the initial listing setup, you'll notice that you can upload a maximum of 20 photos. If you have additional photos to include, you'll want to save your listing and then edit it again to add more photos.

Once you add your basic rental information, you will be able to select "Set Up My Listing" to get started with adding the specific details about your rental.

Adding all of your rental info will create a listing that brings together photos, a description, the location, and a list of amenities to make your place stand out. Did you know a renter is 81% more likely to inquire about a rental with 10+ photos?

To complete this step, click through the pages with the requested property information. To move to the next page, click Next at the bottom of each section.

Note: If you are using your phone's Safari, Firefox, or Edge browser (meaning you are accessing on your phone but not through the TurboTenant app), clicking Start Marketing Online will reveal a confirmation message, and your listing will be posted on dozens of sites!

If you haven't already, you will need to verify your phone number to turn marketing on.

On the TurboTenant mobile app:

Step 1 - Go to the Properties tab and select Add Property.

Step 2 - Enter your rental address.

Step 3 - Confirm your address details and select Add Property.

Step 4 - Select your rental type, then add the rental details such as the number of beds, baths, and square footage.

Step 6 - Select the date that your rental will be available, set your lease term, and enter the rent and security deposit price.

Step 7 - Add any remaining rental details, including occupancy limits, amenities, and any utilities and/or appliances included in the rental.

Step 8 - Add a catchy title and listing description for your rental.

Step 9 - Upload photos of your rental.

Step 10 - Verify your phone number, then select Publish My Listings.
