1. Manage your expectations
It’s human nature to place a high value on something to which we have an investment in. But you need to step into the shoes of a potential tenant. They will view several properties so you need to think about how yours will stack up? Be realistic with your rental price, decorate the property nicely and imagine what you would expect if you were moving into a home.
2. Research agents and costs
Make sure you are realistic with what you are willing to pay an agent to let / manage your property. More often than not, an agent who promises you the full serice for next to nothing is not the agent for you!
If your property is being left with any fixtures and fittings you need to ensure these do not make the marketing or the first impression less than it deserves to be. Review the furniture and décor in each room and ensure you are happy with each one.
4. General repairs and maintenance
Make sure you have seen to any minor DIY issues such as broken door handles or mould in the bathrooms before the viewings commence, you could also give any room in need a fresh lick of paint. Smartening up the garden helps with the first impression needed too.
5. Final step
Most tenants who are looking to move house have already got a date in mind so the better condition your property is in for them when they view, the more flexible we can be when it comes to meeting their needs.
Chris Browne, Director says : “We pride ourselves on the marketing we are able to provide, let us make your property look the best it possibly can”
