  • Professional consultation on rental pricing as well as recommendations for preparing property for highest rent.
  • You don’t pay any advertising - nor do you spend your time on it (unless you want to look over our advertising and give us feedback) ($1200 a month plus in marketing here you don’t pay for but get the advantage of)
    • properties listed on - ForRentOhio.com (Our renter branded website that got 3978 visits in the last 30 days)
