A common leasing question is on how to refresh the rental advertisement (listing) to move it back up to the top of the search. Historically, rental listing websites (Zillow, Trulia, ApartmentList, etc.) made renewals possible. Today, the largest rental listing websites will not promote this behavior.
Rental listing websites want to attract tenants by providing them with accurate data, including the days on market. The only major website that does not provide accurate data is the one you may have guessed, Craigslist. Craigslist allows owners and managers to renew listings and even duplicate them, which makes the data less accurate but more attractive to owners and managers who have the time to renew listings.
You can update the Available Date in Hemlane, but it will not change the days on market nor will it make your listing fresh on the third party listing websites. While Hemlane has tried to change property IDs and other techniques to support our users, the third party rental listing websites have requested that we stop promoting this inaccurate activity.
The best way to make sure your listings are fresh and attractive to tenants is by making sure you are priced appropriately. The goal should always be to have the property on market for less than 30 days. If you are still having difficulty, here is a good article to read on Determining Rental Prices.
