With the recent changes in the property markets around the nation, renting is becoming the housing option for many Australians. With more of the population now switching to renting as a result of climbing housing procures, lack of affordability is paving the way for future rental price increase and shortages.
So what makes renters pay more? What do they expect from you the landlord? How can you make your property more attractive to a prospective tenant?
Here are a number of key items considered by prospective tenants when choosing a rental home..
With it being summer right now this is at the top of the list. Installing air-conditioners, particularly reverse cycle can create the ability for landlords to charge more. Tenants generally preferring split and single unit AC’s over ducted units, which generally use more power and cannot be as easily controlled for desired use.
If a potential tenant already has a pet, they’re not going to choose your property over their dog. Searching through the rentals for a “family home” but they don’t allow pets makes it one of the biggest frustrations tenants have over searching for a property.
Most tenants look after their pets and therefore will look after your home, and they don’t mind paying a pet bond either.
3) Modern quality kitchen
Luxury and convenience in the kitchen is the top of property renovation lists with bathrooms a close second. Renovating these over other rooms such as bedrooms will increase your rental attractiveness. Adding new benchtops, a dishwasher and the like can also increase your asking rent.
4) Low maintenance
A topic that worries both landlords and tenants, keeping property maintenance to low levels means less headaches for both. Repairing appliances and air conditioning before renting out a property as well as garden maintenance such as regular lawn mowing including in the rent is a great idea too.
Landlords want good tenants but tenants want a good landlord as well. Moving house for renters is very disruptive and expensive so if landlords ensure factors like the above to keep their tenant happy they are more likely to sign a longer lease and stay.
Achieving property investment success requires more than just purchasing property and that is finding the right property manager.
