Pimp Out Your Property: Ways to Attract Quality Tenants
(Shout out to all you MTV fans out there who got that reference). If you want to make a quality omelette, you need the best eggs – and here at Frank Salt Real Estate, we’ve been helping people source some of the best “eggs” (tenants) around! As a landlord, you may not have full control over factors such as location or price, but there are certain things you can arrange in order to make your accommodation more attractive to those looking to rent property in Malta. Our experienced team lists a few ways to make your rental apartment or house stand out from the rest.
1. Neighbours, Everybody Needs Good Neighbours…
(Good luck getting that song out of your head for the next 3 weeks!) Quality tenants care a great deal about the standards of their chosen neighbourhood, meaning that the surrounding area of your property should have a wide range of amenities. These could include nearby gyms, community pools and a supermarket within close distance, so when buying-to-let, take these factors into consideration.
2. Win the Attention War With an Army of Images
Don’t skimp when it comes to photography! Recent industry research has discovered that listings without any images only have 2 seconds to capture the attention of potential tenants, as opposed to those with at least three pictures which can command a full minute. That stylish art deco furniture and those sun-lit French windows shouldn’t be left up to the imagination – provide visuals, and you’ll have tenants blowing up your phone in no time!
3. Do Up the Interior
From a fresh coat of paint to the aforementioned art deco furniture, never underestimate the effect that good interior design can have. Invest in comfortable bedding and some pretty accessories to add some character to the living room and bedrooms. High quality tenants always appreciate good taste, and the effort that you put into the decor of the property will reflect well on you as a landlord or owner.
4. Don’t Forget About Creature Comforts
The tenants certainly won’t! A good heating system is a must for those damp, humid Maltese winters, and double-glazed windows to drown out heavy noise are also a good addition. It also shows thoughtfulness and consideration on your part, and will make your property further stand out from the rest.
5. Smarten Up Your Space
Do it the Joan Rivers way and give it a face-lift, extreme makeover – the works. Make sure that your property’s condition is up to scratch and stands up to the most eagle-eyed of tenants. High standards of cleanliness and maintenance sends a clear message that anyone living within the property must adhere to them.
