Appealing to quality tenants is the top priority of a property owner. While all renters want a property that fulfills their particular needs, there are a few features of single-family rental homes that always rise to the top of a prospective renter’s wish list. Knowing what tenants look for, and which features will help your rental homes attract the kind of renters you want, can help your Playa Vista rental properties stand out, even in a highly competitive market.
Perhaps the first and most apparent feature of a pleasing rental home is a property that is clean and in a good state. When a rental home shows signs of ongoing maintenance and modern features, tenants see an owner who takes care of their property. When the time comes when they ask for repairs or maintenance, interested renters will connect a cared-for home with a landlord who will probably deal with their requests efficiently.
Another crucial detail that potential renters look for in a single-family rental home is modern appliances. The kitchen is a key area in a single-family home since people often spend a lot of time there. Enjoying their home includes having updated kitchen appliances for quality mealtime with the family.
Location is always an important part of real estate investing, but what makes a good location? Homes that are extremely sought after are typically those within convenient distance to parks, schools, restaurants, and other standard venues. While the location is an element wherein you may not have much control over, you have to note amenities that are close by and make sure those are listed as part of your marketing materials.
Besides location, potential tenants are almost always looking for space as well. Space for a family, a hobby, storage, parking, and maybe even a pet. One thing that a property owner can do to attract quality renters is to have attractive and easy-to-maintain yards in their Playa Vista rental homes. As gatherings and other activities are a big portion of daily life, a property that holds enough space for these things will have more appeal to people looking to rent a home.
Another important aspect that could help fill vacancies and retain tenants long-term is including a pet clause in the lease that permits renters to keep approved animals on the property. People love their pets, and single-family homes that are more accommodating for pet lovers are always going to be attractive.
Other things that a property owner can do to boost their rental homes’ appeal to quality renters is providing laundry hook-ups and, in warmer climates, central air conditioning. Part of family life is laundry, and space for a washer and dryer is an absolute need if you hope to attract a long-term quality tenant to your single-family rental home. Moreover, air conditioning is necessary for warmer climates. Renters often opt for one rental home over another simply due to reliable air conditioning.
