Are you someone who is struggling to get more tenants for your rented home? Regardless of whether your home is on rent as a holiday let, or a long-term lease, here are a few tips that will help to get more offers for your house on rent.
Make Your Home Attractive To Your Potential Tenants
When it comes right down to the core of a house being rented out, the prime reason for it getting a high traffic of tenants is primarily due to its location. If your home is situated in just the right spot, then there’s almost no need for you to look for tenants. If there is a reason beyond that, which will be the attraction, your home has in general. Its outward appearance, the modern updates you have given your home, the security your home and neighbourhood have, as well as the distance from amenities like a mall or railway station are things that can attract more tenants to your house on rent.
Advertise the Right Way to Attract the Right Crowd
First, consider who your potential house renters are. Are they college students? Working class singles? Small/young families? Retired couples? This could help you in figuring out how to do your advertising and where. For example, if it’s for the college students, emphasize the closeness to your local colleges, college crowd friendly bars and cafes etc. If it’s young families, be more emphatic about the general security of the neighbourhood, as well as the measures you’ve taken to ensure your house on rent is well protected.
Hire Suitable Professionals to Channel the Tenants
Unless you are someone who does not have a full-time job, then chances are that you might find it hard to actively advertise your home to potential renters and tenants. This will reduce the traffic your house receives. To avoid this from happening, consider hiring professionals to do the advertising. Approach property management services in Auckland to help you out with this. Not only will they get you more options for renters, they will also handle certain tasks like deciding on an appropriate rent for your property, making sure your rent is paid to you on time, as well as the maintenance and repairs it will face in the future in the hands of your tenants.
Give Your Tenants Something beyond the Ordinary
If your house is located in a highly desired location, then like we mentioned above, you will not even need to keep a lookout for potential tenants. However, there is a flip side to this¾if your house is not the only house on rent in the area, then you will most probably have plenty of competition. To make your house stand out among the rest, follow the first tip to make it more desirable to potential renters. Try your best to give them something more than your competitors; like dual parking, a storage space for their belongings or even lesser rent.
