FAQ: Should I create Single or Multiple Space for Rent Listings?

May 2nd, 2010

faqMany spaces could be used for a variety of purposes, and owners are sometimes unsure as to the best way to list their space.  We often get asked for advice on the type of space listing that a Space Owner should create.

At the moment, each Space for Rent listing must be assigned to a particular Space Type (although this may change in the future). If for example you have an empty shed which may be suitable for storage, parking a car, or even for use as a office, studio or workshop, it can be tough deciding which type of space you should associate with your listing.

Our recommendation is that rather than creating a single listing, you should create multiple listings – i.e. a separate listing for each relevant space type. One of the main reasons for this is because the amount you may earn in rental is likely to vary depending on the use of the space.  Someone is likely to be willing to pay more for an office or commercial space for example than they would for a parking space or for storage space.

People may also be looking for a particular type of space, and may miss your space listing if it is associated with a different category.  Also, you are more likely to successfully rent out your space if you are able to target your description to a particular type of use – rather than providing a general description.

So, when creating a space for rent listing, if there is not a clear space type to associate it with:

  • Consider creating Separate Space listings under each relevant category
  • Set a price for each listing that is realistic for the expected use
  • Customise the description of you space to target the space type you have associated with it

Spending a little time planning your listing and writing a description which is likely to appeal to the different types of people (and uses) that it is suitable for can have a huge difference on how quickly you rent out your space.

    I agree that it is best to create multiple listing for space rent than just a space for rent. Because even though you make multiple listing, it wouldn’t be a great deal to anyone, yet, it could have a huge difference on your part.

    Choosing a virtual office can lead to a great reduction in mental stress that would otherwise be caused within an office, and often provides individuals with more chances for physical activity throughout the day as well.
