Real estate is a competitive market for sellers, buyers, and renters alike. Every small step you take to enhance your property helps to set it apart from other local listings. The following amenities are especially sought-after. So if you’re determined to keep your rental filled with satisfied tenants, use these amenities to your advantage.
Washer and Dryer
Tenants seek rental properties for a number of reasons. Some aren’t ready to qualify for a mortgage, some only need to move temporarily, and others have relocated for work. Whatever the situation, most renters aren’t lugging a washer and dryer unit around with them.
Tenants will be far more eager to rent your home if you can provide a washer and dryer for them. It’s a huge perk that saves the tenant money and provides a major convenience factor. Nobody wants to move into a property knowing that trips to the laundromat are in their future.
It’s not just the interior of your rental that matters; it’s the exterior as well! Tenants are instantly more likely to consider renting a home with a porch, patio, pool, or other outdoor space. This is especially true in a state like Florida, where the mild weather allows year-round outdoor enjoyment. Consider a relatively low-cost option like a patio screen room if your home isn’t already equipped with a comfortable outdoor space.
Your tenants don’t want to suffer through a brutal Florida summer without central air. Without this amenity, you may find it very difficult to find a long-term tenant. Consult an HVAC specialist to install air conditioning properly.
Lawn Care: For Duplex/Multi-Family
Lawn care can be tricky to coordinate for duplexes and multi-family properties. If you include lawn care and landscape maintenance for your multi-family rentals, your property will benefit from stronger, more consistent curb appeal, while your tenants will love the fact that they can enjoy common outdoor areas without worrying about upkeep.
