The best way to reduce vacancies and to get your home rented quickly is by making sure it looks great to potential renters.
When someone drives by your house, they are going to pay attention to your curb appeal and how the place looks from the outside. With this in mind, keep the lawn freshly mowed, trim the bushes that are in front and put out some colorful flowers that add beauty and interest to your landscape. That kind of thing will really add to your curb appeal. If people see a house that is well taken care of, they will want to open up the door, go inside and walk through the property.
Another thing that will reduce your vacancies and get your home rented fast is the ability to show it right away. If you don’t have time to do this yourself, make sure you hire a property manager who is motivated and can immediately take care of any requests to see your property. You want to be responsive to any interest you get from your marketing. Make sure you respond right away and make sure you’re willing to show the house at a time that’s convenient for your potential tenants.
Whether you’re renting out your property or selling it, the place needs to be in move-in ready condition. When someone walks in and sees your house, they need to feel like they can move right in. Have it professionally cleaned, have the carpets done and touch up any painting that isn’t perfect. These are the three biggest things people will notice as they are walking through a home.
To get your home rented quickly, you need to get customers in the door. The best way to get a customer in the door is to have the house looking fantastic. The longer you keep a person in the house, the greater your chances are of renting or selling it.
