Want to know how to find rental comps for your first or next investment property? Wondering, “How much rent can I charge?” Thankfully, it’s not as hard as many people think to find rental comparables and figure out the perfect rent price. But you need to make sure you don’t make some common rookie mistakes. Going too high on your rent may leave you with an empty unit, while going too low could attract the wrong tenant. Ashley Kehr from the “Real Estate Rookie” podcast is walking through exactly how she finds rent comps.

First things first, don’t let your Uncle tell you what to charge for rent. You can quickly find how much you should be charging by looking up other properties for rent and ONLY comparing the ones similar in size, amenities, utilities, and finishes to your own property. The closer you can make the comparison, the more accurate your rental price will be. Once you’ve figured out your rent price, it’s time to find tenants. We’ll show you the easiest way to do this, too!
