Sometimes a listing will be marked rented in the first day or week, and other listings can remain on the site for 4 months or more.
Activity and success are based on who is in the market at the time you advertise. That entity might be present on day 1...or they can arrive on day 120 - we never know. We do know that a properly crafted listing with good photos will perform better. We are available, behind the scenes, with free creative or technical assistance whenever you require it.
