Great tenants pay their rent on time, treat the property with care and keep it clean. What can landlords do to attract such good tenants?
1) Keep your property in good condition
No matter how good your photos are, if your property isn’t up to scratch, you’ll put off high-quality tenants. A neglected property suggests that the landlord doesn’t care, and isn’t likely to respond to maintenance requests. Good tenants are likely to look elsewhere if this is the case.
2) Install amenities and features they’ll appreciate
Installing a quality air conditioning unit, a modern kitchen or a good internet connection can help make your property more appealing than others in the area. It also attracts people who want a home to enjoy over somewhere to store their belongings and rest their head. A tenant who appreciates their home is more likely to keep it tidy and in good condition.
3) Explain your lease terms and how the building is managed
Part of finding a good tenant is finding one who understands and agrees with your style of property management. By drawing their attention to any unusual or particularly important clauses in the property before they sign the agreement, you’re on the same page from day one. It’s also worth making sure they’re clear on how strata properties are managed, and the associated by-laws.
