Adding properties your RentCast portfolio allows you to receive rent alerts and market updates to help you keep track of local market changes and plan future rent increases.

Follow this guide to turn on alerts and market update notifications for any property in your portfolio.

How to Turn On Rent Alerts

Rent alerts will send you a notification as soon as the estimated rent reaches your target. This is useful for making sure you're charging your tenants market rent and will help you plan future rent increases.

To turn on rent alerts, click on the menu button next to any property in your portfolio, then click the Edit link:

Property settings link on portfolio page

Next, click on the Notifications tab in the property settings popup, turn on the Enable rent alerts toggle and enter your Rent target amount for this alert:

Property notifications - rent alerts

Click Save Changes at the bottom when finished.

Once the alert is enabled, you will receive an email and an in-app notification once the estimated property rent reaches your target amount.

How to Turn On Market Updates

Market update notifications are great for tracking rent changes for your properties, keeping an eye out for new rental listings and noticing shifts in the local market.

To turn on market updates, click on the menu button next to any property in your portfolio, then click the Edit link:

Property settings link on portfolio page

Next, click on the Notifications tab in the property settings popup, turn on the Enable market updates toggle and set your desired Email frequency for market update emails:

Click Save Changes at the bottom when finished.

Once you enable market updates, you will start receiving regular emails at the beginning of each month (or as often as the frequency you selected) with the latest rental data for that property.
