Is Your Apartment Vacant?


Is your Chicago apartment still available? As Landlords ourselves, we understand how frustrating it can be to not have a tenant scheduled to move in. Here are three tips to get your apartment rented as soon as possible:

1. Evaluate Your Marketing

At The Apartment Source, we are constantly evaluating our marketing approach for our rental properties. Not only do we utilize our partnerships and syndication with the top 20 third-party rental sites, we have our team of leasing professionals posting ads across social media and other online platforms. Our social media videos and advertisements receive high engagement, making sure we are getting our properties in front of as many eyes as possible (check out our TikTok, we’re killing it!). 

2. First Impressions Matter

When potential tenants tour your apartment, they want to be able to imagine themselves living in your space, not moving into someone else’s. This means making sure your unit is as clean and tidy as possible, especially the common areas. If the unit is vacant, take advantage of this opportunity to make any needed repairs and updates. How is the paint looking? Could the walls use a fresh coat? If you make any significant changes, be sure to schedule a professional photographer (we can help!)  to document the changes and update the listing photos. 

3. Consider the Price

If your apartment has been available for an extended period, it might be time to reassess the pricing. Compare your rental rate with similar units in the area to determine if your price is competitive. If your property is priced too high, this could be deterring potential tenants. Our Landlord Services Department can help you price your property competitively while taking into account market fluctuations, ensuring we attract tenants quickly. 

If your apartment is still vacant, give us a call: 773-404-9900 or send us an email to: info@apartmentsource.com.The Apartment Source is the #1 leasing brokerage in Chicago for 4 years running. We’re looking forward to exceeding expectations.
