How to Attract Good Tenants

Attracting good tenants is a critical aspect of property management, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Creating a positive first impression is key to securing reliable tenants and minimizing vacancy periods. Ensuring your property is tidy and well-presented before marketing can make all the difference.

If you spend a small amount of time prior to marketing your property to ensure that your property is tidy and well presented, you are well on the path to securing quality and reliable tenants, who will want to rent your property.

Over the life time of your investment, you may have to give your property a facelift. Many investors shy away from refurbishing their property thinking that the money spent will not be recouped.

A refurbished and well-presented property not only attracts good tenants, but also means a greater likelihood of obtaining a higher rent and reduced vacancy period. Whilst a poorly presented property is likely to attract a tenant of the same calibre.

As experienced property managers in Perth, we recommend that Landlords budget and create a “sinking fund” to cover expenses that may pop up over the years. On average an investment property will need to be updated every 4 to 6 years. Things you may wish to budget for over this timeframe include:

  • Replacement of the hot water system
  • Replacement of appliances such as the stove and the dishwasher
  • Internal and external painting
  • Replacement of floor coverings and blinds

It is not all bad news, expenses incurred in making your property attractive to tenants may also be tax deductible.

A well-presented property will attract good tenants, who will care for the property and will often stay long term, over time reducing vacancy periods and lost rental income.
