What if I want a rent amount that is higher than your recommendation?

You may place your property on the market at a rental amount that you are comfortable with. However, keep in mind that it is market demand that sets the rent.

If the market (i.e. prospective tenants looking at your rental property) thinks that the asking rent is too high, your property may stay vacant longer than necessary. This may cost you more than any extra you ask for in rent.
