Tired Of Void Periods - Get Tenants FAST With These Simple Tips

Tired Of Void Periods? Get Tenants FAST With These Simple Tips

Spring is one of the most popular times for tenants to move to a new property, it is also the busiest season of the year for us. So if you’re thinking of renting out your property in Newport, you need to make sure your property is in tip top shape to attract (the right) tenants, FAST.

Here are some things you can do to make sure your property is showing off its best colours at your next viewing:

1. Declutter

We all have that little corner full of ‘stuff’. It grows over time. It’s very similar to ‘the chair’ in a bedroom where you wake up one day and a pile of clothes is sitting there that you never noticed before.

Go through your house with the eyes of a tenant. What will they be looking at? Is there unnecessary clutter you can clear out? Tenants need to imagine themselves living there, and an untidy, cluttered space will hamper them from doing so.

2. Touch Up Paint

The winter and damp is long gone or you might not have repainted in a few years. Either way, a lick of paint can freshen up any room. Think neutral colours as opposed to bold colours as neutral colours create a better sense of space.

3. Kerb Appeal

Walk across the street and look at your property. What is the first impression you get? Simple things to consider to make it more attractive:

  • A Lawn, even if it is a small strip

  • Planting of Shrubs

  • Hanging baskets with blooms

4. Fix It Up

All those little jobs around your property that you’ve been putting off for a while? Spring is the ideal time to jump in and fix things, after all, your property needs to look its best for potential tenants.

If you don’t have time to get around to these tasks, we know some of the best professionals and contractors Newport has to offer. Give us a call on 01633 265222.

    Thats all well and good, but in the Newport area, you simply won’t rent out (no matter how good the property) unless the price is right..
    Everything is geared to affordability here, supply and demand take a back step over this most important factor.
    I used to get more rent 20 years ago for some properties than I do today and that says it all really about the local market.
    Prices of houses have risen quite dramatically in some of the surrounding areas of Newport, but the rents have remained static..
    So buying a house to rent, now that the prices have risen, is no longer a viable proposition, unless the rents rise dramatically and I can’t see that happening.
    Together with all the massive amount of ongoing new legislation in the PRS sector, increasing landlords costs dramatically, one would have to question whether it is viable anymore ?
