Landlords, are you looking for qualified renters for your property in the Palm Beach County area?
WAYS TO MAKE SURE YOUR PROPERTY IS IN RENT-READY SHAPE:
Curb appeal matters whether you are renting or selling a property. A welcoming exterior makes a good first impression. Check the landscaping and trim bushes and trees and mow the yard if it’s needed. Make sure there isn't any trash laying around and check the window screens while you're at it and replace any that have holes or are missing. Having a tidy exterior indicates that you take an active interest in your property.
Prior to showing the rental remove anything that you don’t intend to include with the property. If you are renting it furnished make sure that the furniture is clean. Open areas suggest a larger space so rearrange or eliminate furniture to avoid a cramped appearance.
Be sure all rooms have working light bulbs and make certain there aren’t any drippy faucets.
Check that air conditioners and heating units are in good condition. Turn on the AC or heat before showing so prospective tenants will be comfortable and take their time looking over the property.
Look around the interior and think of things you can do to up the appeal. You may want to go the extra mile - if window treatments aren't included consider making the front room more inviting by purchasing some inexpensive curtains.
And don’t overlook the power of scent. There are many different types of room fresheners that offer scents from cinnamon and spice to lily of the valley to fresh ground coffee. What better impression can you make than having a prospective renter walk into a house that smells of something yummy.
Most markets have seen an increase in the number of available rentals, allowing qualified tenants more discretion in their choice of homes.Taking steps to present an inviting, clean and well-maintained dwelling can make all the difference in how quickly you are able to rent your property, plus it is more likely to attract the type of renters who will take care of it.
Don't be in a rush to rent - make sure you are getting qualified tenants.
