The situation is difficult and you have suddenly decided that it is time to take that property that is vacant and put in the rental market. For those who do not have experience in this area, many questions arise: how to find tenants and how to attract potential tenants? What are the expenses that the owner will have with this rent? To answer these and other questions, check out the professional tips.
By law, the owner is required to market a property that has living conditions, that is, that presents good conditions for who will live there. More than that, when the rental market is hot, it’s important to keep looking good to attract renters.
When the property is closed during a period, it is still necessary to take care of the maintenance, keeping the place always clean. Do you know those places that look abandoned? So, avoid at all costs. If the property has a garden, keep the grass trimmed. Pool? Always clean. If the city is going through a dry season, it is even better to empty and clean.
Advertise is alternative
In times of digital mobility, the best way to attract the attention of future tenants is to advertise the place on the networks. For this, take photos of the environments of the property, at angles that favor each environment. For example: before taking pictures of the room, ensure good lighting to show that it is airy and bright. If there is a garage, kitchen and room cabinets, try to show the full space.
Open to visitation
This is the time to convince the prospective tenant that this is the ideal home for them. For this, it is important to facilitate access to the site as much as possible.
Meet the tenant
Before closing the contract with your tenant, you need a good conversation to understand the expectations of the person, offer information and ask questions. In addition, it is imperative to research the “financial health” of the lessee to see if he can afford to pay.
Whenever you receive a proposal from a potential tenant, you must be open to negotiation, both of possible clauses that may be requested by the tenant, and when determining what collateral will be taken.
