Today on 938Live, we shared about how top owners in Rent Tycoons earn more than S$1000 from simply listing and renting out their items. One owner made more than S$2800 from renting out items such as tables, chairs, portable aircon, food trays, water dispenser, etc.

Rent Tycoons Interview

How can you become one of our top owners? Here's some advice to get you going:

(1) Pick out high value items in your home/storage houses 

Renters are interested to rent items that are of good quality and are in great working conditions. For example items such as high pressure washer, portable airconditioner, laptops, etc.

Do not limit the types of items that people are looking to rent. If you think that bulky items are not easily rented out - you think wrong! An owner has recently rented out her treadmill for one month, and this is not the first time. Other bulky items that are repeatedly rented include flipcharts, tentages, gazebo, speaker and amplifier...and the list goes on.

Another easy way is to check out the Top Rental Items chart to know what are the items in demand.

(2) Make your item listing attractive

All listings on is free! You can upload 3 photos of your item - make the best out of it. Take clear photos in the day time and choose a plain background. 

Describe the item to your best ability (you could also Google for those details using the model number). Providing sufficient details to potential renters is key to letting them come to a decision to rent your item.

Use key words to Tag the item and allow your item to get visibility when renters are searching on the website.

(3) Set competitve rental rates

You own it, so you get to set the Daily, Weekly and Monthly rental rates for each item. Search for similar items on the website to do a comparison on the pricing. Make sure that your deposit fee is reasonsable - high deposit fees put off potential renters!
