Vacancies mean profit losses, and while short-term vacancies can be managed, longer periods are simply unsustainable. To help you keep and maintain a steady cash flow, we’ve compiled a few tips on how to fill your empty properties faster.
Keeping your property in good condition is crucial. From the front curb, all the way to the back fence, everything is a factor when you want your property to be considered “rent-ready.” Real Property Management Investment Solutions in Grand Rapids, Michigan knows that showing a property before it is completely ready can actually extend your vacancy period. Make sure to finalize all cleaning and repairs before you start advertising or showing your property.
Curb appeal is a great way to catch the eye of potential renters as it inspires them to want to come in for a closer look without you pressing the issue.
An easy way to check this is by pulling up to the curb of your unit and making an honest evaluation of what you see. Would you yourself want to rent the property based on its first appearances? Rest easy in the knowledge that your Grand Rapids Real Property Management Investment Solutions will arrange for yard work and general repairs to the exterior. We understand that not paying attention to the outside risks potential residents leaving without having taken the time to see what the inside has to offer.
Safety and Security
Safety is a top priority when preparing for a new resident. If not already, re-keying the property before each new resident should become your standard policy. Checking your smoke, radon, and carbon monoxide detectors are also a must for the safety of your residents. We at Real Property Management Investment Solutions in Grand Rapids, Michigan will help ensure all required regulations are adhered to for the safety and security of new residents.
Complete all repairs and remodeling before showing the unit and always clean up after working. Real Property Management Investment Solutions will make sure your rental home is thoroughly and professionally cleaned and ready to be moved into. Upon completion, we will check that all appliances and other equipment are ready to go and working properly. Before departing we’ll perform a complete property review, giving you the peace of mind in knowing that your property will be rented in the shortest amount of time possible helping you avoid headaches and financial loss.
