One of the best options that some landlords do to help cover the mortgage is to rent out the apartment and may want to have a lot of options as they can possibly get to avoid vacancy in their rental property.

There are some rental property owners who consider military families because this is one of the options that will help keep the properties rented and also because those military members are guaranteed to have a consistent housing allowance. This article will provide tips on how you can make your rental attractive to potential military families.



When a military member gets a new assignment and has to transfer near the base, some of their families sometimes get involved with the situation; and to have to go with them. Some of the military families get more interested in looking for a rental property near the base. When landlord markets the rentals, you may want to indicate in your listing the distance of your rental property to the base.


Rental Price

This is one of what the military families consider; they often look at which rental property has an attractive property unit and at the same time has a good rental rate.  United States active military members get a regular fixed sum of money known as Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH). And so if you are planning to rent out your rental property to military families, you may want to check first what is the BAH rate in your zip code because it may attract them if the price is right.


Consider a Furnished Place

Military families are frequently on the move and may always have not so much time to prepare to transfer all of their furniture. Some of the military family decides to rent right away, so in most cases, they prefer to choose a ready to move-in place right away. Considering either a semi-furnish or fully furnished rental property would be a great idea for them.


Military Discount

By marketing military discount, you are not only helping yourself getting more tenants but this is a great way of supporting the military personnel who protects the county and its people. Consider doing this through social media which is one of the effective ways of marketing your rental property especially if you are targeting a number of tenants like a military member. Collecting the email address of your military customers is a great way also of advertising your rental unit by creating a month's e-newsletter and promoting to them about your offer of military discount. You may also consider a positive word of mouth within the community about the military discount. It would be a great help too if you will make an unforgettable and relevant marketing strategy to help keep your rental place rented.


Finally, there are lots of ways and good reasons for how to effectively promote your rental property to all prospective tenants. But ensure the landlord’s obligation to maintain the property which includes a clean, safe and habitable to all tenants home.
