When you are renting a property, it is important that you make it as appealing to prospective tenants as possible. The longer a property stays on the market, the longer you lose out on your potential income. At Belvoir, we are here to help you get the most out of your rental property, so here are our top tips on how to make your property appeal to prospective tenants.
When it comes to your property, first impressions do matter. Make sure that the exterior looks as great as the inside, ensuring that garden strips are neat, tidy and free of weeds. If you think that the door and exterior look dated, consider cleaning and painting these areas to make them look fresher.
Hanging baskets and other colourful decorations can make a home feel more inviting, so these are also things to consider when tenants are coming to inspect the property.
Neutral Colour Scheme
When renting a property, tenants want to be able to put their own touches on the interior design, and strong colours or designs can be intimidating and put people off. Try to stick to neutral whites, greys, blacks or pastel colours to allow tenants to see the property’s full potential.
If you are furnishing the property, it is best to stick to this colour scheme for the furniture. You can achieve this by sourcing your furniture either from independent retailers, upscaled furniture suppliers or companies such as Ikea.
Kitchens and Bathrooms
Kitchens and bathrooms are very important to tenants, and can make or break a rental agreement. This doesn’t mean you will have to remodel these rooms or install a new suite, but by following these basic steps you can make sure your kitchen and bathroom/s are featured in the best way possible.
The first step is to ensure that these rooms are as clean as possible for every viewing. Other touches include having potpourri, air freshener or scented candles in the room to add to the pleasant, fresh aroma.
Judge if anything, such as taps, door knobs or showerheads, need changing or replacing, as this can make the room look newer at very little cost and make the property far more appealing to tenants.
