Try the following ad - be prepared for a lot of calls. Typically 80-100 in the first week.
Rent to Own - Newly remodeled 3bed, 2bath, (Location), (phone)
Note: The more specifics like price, area, etc… that you put in the ad - the more you will target specific tenant/buyer qualifications. The more broad your ad is, the more calls you will get - this is better when you want to build a buyers list. (Highly recommended)
Prepare a one page script of pre-qualifying questions to ask every potential tenant/buyer. Tell everyone that meets your intiial criteria that you will show the house at (date/time) - tell them all the same time.
This will save you a lot of time and it creates a competetive situation between prospects.
Have your applications available at the showing. Tell them all that the first qualified person with the required option consideration gets its. In others words you want and application AND the money in your hands.
Hope this helps,
