Vacant rentals aren't doing you any favors.
However, putting the wrong tenant in your rental property can result in unpaid rent, damaged property, broken leases, and other nightmares. Finding a good tenant for your rental property isn't always easy, but it's a crucial part of the job for a landlord. So, what's the best way to find the ideal renters?
To find a tenant, you need to utilize the best marketing techniques, perform screenings, and make your rental properties look good. Start with these tips for landlords.
Know How to Advertise the Property
Part of finding tenants involves making sure they find your property in the first place and then appealing to them with key aspects of what makes your property special.
Make sure you take professional photos that showcase all of the best details. Low-quality pictures will make you look unprofessional and won't appeal to your renters.
Highlight all of the key amenities and perks, such as a washer and dryer or laundry facility, the parking situation, pools, workout rooms, access to highways, proximity to parks and shopping, etc.
Renters aren't just looking for a place to sleep at night; they want a new place to call home. They want to learn about the neighborhood and all the benefits they can get when renting with you.
Homeowners will stage a property to get buyers more interested by envisioning themselves there. You can do that as a landlord, too. One of our favorite tips for landlords is to use virtual staging.
Staging a property makes it easier for renters to imagine themselves in the space, as they can visualize how certain furniture fits and get a better idea of the size of the place.
Staging can even result in getting renters to sign a lease faster and for higher rents than unstaged properties.
Rely on the Professionals
Getting leads and advertising is a real struggle, and there's no doubt that it takes a lot of time and effort. You already have a lot on your plate as a landlord, which is why investing in property management services is such a great move. It allows you to focus on other tasks and make the most of your rental investments.
