What do I do when my property is rented?
Once your property has been rented you mark your ad as ?RENTED? or we can mark it rented for you. All ads are automatically deactivated within 72 hours from the time they are marked ?RENTED?. Ads are then stored on our system complete with photos for ease of renewal.
Will renters contact me directly if they are interested in my property or do they contact HomeRENT.ca?
They contact you directly. It is your contact information (i.e. phone number) that appears with your ad. And as a reminder - you should always check your ad once it has been placed to make sure your contact information is correct.
Can I edit or change my ad after it has been placed? How much does it cost?
Yes! All changes are absolutely FREE! Once an ad has been placed and paid for, you receive a Username and Password that allows you to log into your account and edit your ad at anytime. All changes are instant and there is no wait for updates to appear live to viewers.
I am worried about giving my credit card over the Internet. What does ?secure server? mean?
