With the average tenancy term now lasting 20 months, it is important to ensure that you can secure the best tenants possible. Elements such as the choice of Letting Agent can be fundamental when striving to achieve this, but ultimately one of the most important contributing factors lies with the Landlord in presentation of the property.
When considering your target audience, believe it or not it is the finer touches that captivate the desired tenant. Gone are the days when renting had a stigma attached and now due to the calibre of properties on offer, why wouldn’t you want to take your pick from the best property around and not have the hassle that ownership can sometimes bring?
Getting off to the best start is vital when letting a property and this often begins with the presentation. With more people than ever now renting, it is important to make sure that your property stands out for the right reasons. If the property is well presented, with thought going into the decorative order and some investment into the features/appliances, then it will inevitably draw a more conscientious selection of tenants.
In order to appeal to a certain market, investing in your property is imperative. With this comes the benefit of being able to choose from the best Tenants around.
Ultimately in letting your property you are looking for an investment and as much as it may feel that you have to spend money before you see a return, based on experience it certainly pays off.
More often than not it is the properties where Landlords have invested in high quality materials, whether this be from good quality carpets through to granite kitchen worktops, which secure a more responsible, scrupulous tenant.
