How long will it take you to find me a tenant?
This is a question that property managers get asked a lot, and the answer is, it depends.
There are so many factors that affect the desirability of a home, it can be difficult to give an exact time frame for how long it will take to find a tenant. If the property is "standard" it will typically rent much faster than a "unique" home such as a mountain home, a home in a new development or a home with an extremely large lot.
For a professional property manager, renting out a home in under 30 days should be standard and what happens 90% of the time.
For an owner renting out their own home for the first time, it isn't uncommon for the home to sit vacant for weeks or even months.
