How to make a rental unit more desirable

Today we will present to you several tips with which you can make your rental unit more desirable and therefore rent it more quickly.

Desirable rentalsThe first and more effective way to make a rental unit appear fresher is to repaint the walls. Simply apply a fresh layer of paint and see how the curb appeal of your rental unit will increase instantly. However don’t use any bright, vibrant or dark colours. Instead opt for neutral colours such as white, grey, beige and etc. You must use neutral colours because people respond to such colours better.

Next replace the old switch plates, door knobs and cabinet handles with new ones. This simple remodelling will make your rental unit appear more sophisticated and will give a more contemporary overall feeling to your property.

Remove all memorabilia from your property because potential tenants will want to be able to imagine themselves living in your property and the presence of memorabilia will disrupt them. However you can leave some painting on the walls just to make the rental unit feel cosier and more welcoming.

The fact that you have taken care of the interior of property doesn’t mean that you have made your rental unit more appealing. The outside of your property will be the first thing that the potential tenants will see. This means that you must refresh the façade and mow the lawn in order to make a good first impression. Also remove all oil, gas and tire stains and marks from your driveway. If you have a backyard make sure that you clean and put it in order before you commence the visitations.   

The last thing that you must do before you start the visitation is to clean the rental unit from top to bottom. You can either clean the property on your own or hire a professional cleaning company like Carpet Cleaning Acton that provides pre and end of tenancy cleaning services. If you opt for the latter don’t worry about the cleaning fee because nowadays lots of cleaning firms work with affordable prices.

Once your property is cleaned you can begin inviting the potential tenants for visitations. During the visitations don’t be timid and commence discussing the tenancy terms with the candidates. This way you will show them your property and conduct the interviews at the same time.

If you do the things that we listed we promise you that you will rent out your rental unit much more quickly than you have anticipated.
