When you’re deciding how much to charge for your property or how quickly you can get it rented, you’ll need a rental amenities checklist. Today, we’re discussing which amenities and finishes tenants look for in a rental property.
What Do Tenants Look for in a Rental Property?
One thing that helps houses rent quickly and for more money is the kitchen. Kitchen updates are very popular with tenants. When it comes to appliances, you want to choose stainless steel. If you can’t install stainless steel appliances, go with black. White appliances are just not an option if you’re hoping to rent to highly qualified tenants and for the highest rental price. You’ll get higher returns when you invest in nice appliances.
Counter tops and backsplashes are also good opportunities to earn more and attract great tenants. You’ll get the most bang for your buck on your remodel when you consider these details.
Flooring: Carpet or Hard Surfaces?
When it comes to flooring for your rental property, there is a lot of buzz right now about hard surfaces. They are easier to maintain, and tenants are attracted to them. You can find engineered wood floors or tiles that look like wood. These are great considerations for your property.
High Speed Internet
Space is not as important as you’d think. Your property does not have to be huge. It just has to be clean, updated, attractive, and functional. Tenants are seeking those things, and they’re willing to pay for them. Another thing they’re willing to pay for is a property that’s ready for high speed internet. Good tenants love Google fiber-ready homes. Get your property ready for that service, because it’s a huge selling point.
