Landlord 101: How to Craft a Listing on

In the realm of property rentals, numerous platforms compete for attention, including well-known names like SpareRoom, Zoopla, On the Market, Facebook Marketplace, Gumtree, and more. However, there’s a new player in the game—! What sets Room Club apart from its competitors? It’s simple: it’s free and comes with features that enable cross-platform and social media promotion.

Today, let’s delve into the intricacies of crafting property listings managed by landlords or agencies. An effective listing comprises several sections: Description, Price, Media, Details, Features, Energy Class, Location, and Map.

Description: This section includes the title, representing the essence of the listing, and a detailed description of the property. The description should encompass all necessary information for potential clients to understand what they are renting, including terms and conditions.

To ensure a well-structured listing, follow these recommendations:

  • Avoid using numbered lists.
  • Refrain from using hyphens (-) to list multiple items.
  • Do not break lines to create lists; use the slash (/) for separation (e.g., “Bills included: Water/ Council Tax/ Broadband”).
  • Specify whether Council Tax is included or not. If not, provide details about the band (A, B, C, etc.).
  • Avoid using colored characters, colored underlines, hyperlinks, or URLs.
  • Refrain from writing entire words in uppercase.
  • Avoid using text styles (e.g., headings, bold, underline).
  • Do not include images or emojis.
  • Choose “House” and “Flat” for whole properties, “Flat Share” or “House Share” for shared accommodations as the “Type of Property.”
  • Set the “Availability Status” to “For Rent” at all times.

With these adjustments, your listing will be poised to professionally convey all the necessary information for potential tenants to determine if they are the right fit.
