How can I rent out a single room in a property?
Are you looking to rent out your property or a single room? Maybe you’ve already had inquiries or requests to rent out a room to a single tenant. If you only want to rent out one rental unit, it’s important to communicate that!
TurboTenant specializes in full property rentals and not single rooms. If you rent an individual room through TurboTenant, we recommend that you make sure your listing reflects that specifically (instead of the total number of bedrooms in the home). It may help reduce excessive inquiries to include a Unit number, too. You could also update the property title and listing description to communicate a "Room Rental," "Shared Home," or "Looking for a Roommate" to be more clear.
Select Room Rental when adding your listing on your landlord portal. This will allow you to add the details for each room.
The Benefits of a Room Rental Platform
For the best experience renting your room, we'd recommend using a platform specializing in room rentals and roommate matching. By doing this, you can save yourself the extra time and effort it takes to respond to inquiries from tenants only looking to rent a full unit or property.
If you decide to use a different platform to market your room, once you find a tenant, you can still invite them to apply through TurboTenant! You'll need to have a property listing for the room rental, but it does not have to be actively marketing for a prospective tenant to be able to apply via invitation. This way, you can manage the property/room rental through TurboTenant.
