Smart and savvy tenants know what exactly to look for in a property they want to rent before signing any kind of paperwork and shelling out money. You can expect prospective lessees to make certain that everything in and outside of the rental unit is in perfect condition.
So how can you improve your chances of securing a tenant as soon as possible? Here are three things you can do to achieve this goal.
Get your home assessed by professional inspectors.
From the outside, your property may look really nice. But the exterior is not the only thing your potential tenants will look at. They will also inspect the interiors, particularly those that really make up your home: the overall structure; the plumbing, drainage, and sewer system; the HVAC ducts, and the roof among many others.
Before you put up ads for your rental property, have it assessed by pro inspectors first. They will provide you with a detailed report of any identified issues and problems with your property.
Get those repairs done and boost curb appeal.
Once you have the detailed report from the professional inspection, you now know which areas to repair, improve, or remodel. In many cases, these areas involve damaged structural materials like rotten wood, roof leaks, crumbling drywall, and sunken concrete among many others. You should also address problems with the plumbing and the HVAC system as well as their ducts. You should also make sure you do not have a pest infestation issue.
As a final note, hire only qualified tradesmen for each job, to ensure of excellent project results.
