One of the most important aspects of finding qualified tenants for your investment property is aggressive and well thought out advertising.
Effective advertising starts with comprehensive research. That's why we have a team in place who analyzes data and current trends daily to determine the best places to advertise your property for maximum exposure. Based on this research, our team makes sure that our company, and therefore your properties, maintain a strong presence on the internet that drive in the best prospects and leads. This is how Sweyer Property Management has continued to consistently maintain a dominant presence month after month in rental property searches done through Google.
WE GET RESULTS
Not only do we ensure that your properties are featured on third-party websites, but our own website and social media accounts are strongholds in the local rental industry. Our website receives over 126,000 visitors each year. We also make daily efforts to showcase our available properties and company on our various social media accounts such as Facebook, Google and Instagram which bring in an additional 500,000 views annually.
WE ATTRACT TENANTS THROUGHOUT THE WEB
Advertising online is a constantly moving target with information changing on a daily basis. While our properties are syndicated out to a number of third-party sites, we identify those sites that are our best sources for high-quality leads outside of our own website and social media accounts and focus additional efforts there. Our team makes every effort to follow rental industry advertising trends and make appropriate modifications to our marketing efforts should these trends change.
Through all of our strong advertising and marketing efforts, Sweyer Property Management currently averages a 95% occupancy rate each month throughout the year.

Wilmington was settled by European Americans along the Cape Fear River. Its historic downtown has a one-mile-long Riverwalk, developed as a tourist attraction. It is minutes away from nearby beaches. The National Trust for Historic Preservation named Wilmington, North Carolina, one of its 2008 Dozen Distinctive Destinations. City residents live between the river and the ocean, with four nearby beach communities: Fort Fisher, Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, and Kure Beach all within a half-hour drive from downtown Wilmington.
In 2003 the city was designated by the US Congress, as a "Coast Guard City". It is home port for the USCGC Diligence, a United States Coast Guard medium endurance cutter. The World War II battleship USS North Carolina is held as a war memorial; located across from the downtown port area, the ship is open to public tours. Other attractions include the Cape Fear Museum, the Wilmington Hammerheads United Soccer Leagues soccer team, and the training camp site for the Charlotte Bobcats. The University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) provides a wide variety of programs for undergraduates, graduate students, and adult learners, in addition to cultural and sports events open to the community.
Wilmington is the home of EUE Screen Gems Studios, the largest domestic television and movie production facility outside of California. "Dream Stage 10," the facility's newest sound stage, is the third-largest in the US. It houses the largest special-effects water tank in North America.
