Default tentant has done a runner, best way to advertise please?

Hi guys,

TIA

Put a sign up either outside the apartment, if it is visable, or in supermarkets and http://www.pentimo.com/

Best of luck babe.

you're new here right, how u doin?

Its still an idea to hang a board or sign over the balcony, you never know who will be interested. Also tell us the details on here, ppl may know someone etc.

Where in Dubai you at?

dubizzle will be the most popular one without giving it to an agent, but it all depends on your pictures and advert quality.

I have a few properties that I let out in London. I've seen the adverts on dubizzle and they are lacking in any relevant information and quality.

Let be honest, even the agents use dubizzle, so tat is the best bet.

Lets now consider what your advert on dubizzle actually looks like.

1) Heading
2) Quality of text
3) Pictures

If you have the add send me the link and ill give it a good seeing to.

You could try unintentionally mentioning the price on here.

Just seen the ad. 1375dhs a week on a 6 month contract minimum.

While nice and furnished, it is on the expensive side for a studio, most that want a good quality living environment will go for a 1 bed apartment minimum.

I guess you could either reduce the price, or rent it unfurnished.

4000 AED a month should do the trick.
