For every day you have a vacancy at your rental property, you are losing potential rental income.

There are, however, simple fixes to make your property more desirable to prospective tenants.
Curb Appeal

First impressions are lasting impressions. If the exterior of your building is not up to par, a prospective tenant may not even want to come inside.

For a few hundred dollars you can completely transform a space. A fresh coat of paint can revive tired walls, brighten dim hallways and highlight architectural features such as high ceilings etc.

Stick to Neutral Paint Colours

You want your property to appeal to the masses. So Stick to neutral colours such as off-white, grey and cream to make the place feel light and bright to make space feel bigger and more inviting.

When it comes to maintenance, approach your tenants with a sense of fairness. Just think of yourself as a renter, and become the landlord you would like to have. It is just as easy as that, and the money you save in lower vacancy rates and tenant care of the property will be well worth the little extra service you provide.

You can easily see why keeping tenants happy to renew their lease saves you money.
