Q. What is the benefit to advertising my rental property on the Internet?
A. Exposure!! Conventional advertising is expensive and one wants to reach the greatest number of potential tenants, for the longest duration possible, for the lowest price possible. By advertising a rental property on the internet, thousands of prospective tenants can view your property at their leisure, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It can ensure your valuable time is spent talking with only the most serious of potential tenants, without having to arrange a showing every time someone expresses interest. Advertising on the Internet also allows prospective tenants moving from within the district, province, Canada wide and/or Internationally to find & view your property before they actually step foot in your city.

Q. How does my property get exposure on
A. The main website is advertised in many regional newspapers and trade shows and search engines. Additionally, all rental properties are redirected from the "Rental Properties" button on which is a high traffic FSBO web service receiving thousands of daily hits and hundreds of thousands of pageviews every single day. Furthermore, all RentalEarth ads are assigned a unique listing number for you to target your own market. For example post an inexpensive 15 word Ad in your local classifieds directing potential tenants to your "Beautiful 3 bedroom lakefront cottage for rent view at Site# 2111" where they can find pictures, and a thousand word write-up. Add a map link that generates driving instructions, and detailed contact information and its all over but the signing. We provide a cost effective tool for maximizing exposure, ensuring the most detail possible of your rental property is available to as many prospective tenants as possible. How much better can it get then that??

Q. Do I need a computer to list my rental property on
A. No, not at all. Only the potential tenants require computer access. A landlord who does not have access to a computer can rely on a friend or family member to publish your property or send us the information and we'll do it for you. Just contact

Q. Is RentalEarth.Com involved in any part of the actual rental transaction?
A. No! We provide the exposure by attracting people through various means, including multiple newspaper advertisements in various locals, participation in local tradeshows, direct marketing, brochures and professional signage. Potential tenants will contact you directly.


I am a prospective tenant. How do I contact the owner?


All rental advertisements provide the telephone number of the landlords/property managers with most including a link to send an e-mail inquiry. However you choose to communicate, the listings enable you to directly contact someone who knows about the property and can answer specific questions for you, that may not have been covered by the pictures and on-line description.

Q. As a tenant, how do I know the rentals posted are legitimate?
A. The online service we provide for tenants or vacationers is comparable to that offered by a newspaper or magazine through which vacation or rental properties are advertised with information provided by the customer. Our recommendation is that you request references and a list of past renters from the landlords. If possible, it is also suggested that you visit the property in advance.

Q. How do I make a booking on a cabin rental?
A. Individual property owners have their own way of conducting a rental. When making the rental reservation, make sure you have covered your arrival and departure dates, number of adults and children, any pets you want to bring along, and any special needs that you might have. To ensure that details of the rental are communicated, a clearly written rental agreement or lease is recommended. As a legally binding contract, the rental agreement or lease should include defined arrival and departure dates, payment schedules, detailed instructions, and terms and conditions related to cancellations and refunds.

Q. If my city is not listed on the website, can I still sign up?
A. Yes, you can add new cities during the self-publish process. Its as simple as an extra 30 seconds.

Q. If I dont have any pictures of my rental property, can I still sign up?
A. Yes definitely! The main idea is to start getting exposure immediately, so it is to your benefit to get information regarding availability of your property on-line as soon as possible. Although eventually including a picture may be desirable, pictures are by no means required, especially to get started. You can add or change pictures at anytime even once it's posted.
