here are three ways you can attract the higher paying tenants you are seeking.
Make sure you have set a reasonable rental price
The most important thing to know about attempting to rent out a property is that people are only going to pay you what they think the property is worth. That being said, there are still pricing rules you have to follow to ensure that you can make this price more attractive and that it is fair. For example, the price of your rental property will depend upon multiple market factors and physical characteristics such as the time of year in which you are renting out your property, the area and city in which your rental property is located, the total size of your rental property, the overall quality and look of your property, and how your property compares to others surrounding it. You will obviously want to charge on the higher end of the spectrum if you have a high-quality property, but if you charge too high, you aren’t going to attract the higher paying tenants you want.
Highlight the selling points of your property
If your property has a lot to offer, you want to make sure that you highlight the main selling points of your property.
Is it close to great shopping centers and necessary grocery stores?
If your tenant has children, does it have a great school district and plenty of things for the family do?
Does your property come with great amenities and a high-quality design that makes it stand out in the neighborhood?
The more you can make your property appealing to those who come across your listing or to those who reach out to you in person, the higher the likelihood that they are going to consider renting your space instead of renting out a competitors’.
Offer additional features they have trouble finding elsewhere
If it helps to add to the price point and attract renters, you should attempt to include additional items and features that they are unlikely to find with other renters. For example, you could consider making your house or apartment a pet-friendly environment or you could choose to add certain appliances to your rental that come with space and add value to their living situation. Small additions like these can bump up the price point and act as a selling point for certain tenants.
Along with making sure that you are attracting high-paying tenants with these three useful tips, you should also make sure that you are attracting the right tenants. Once you’ve set up your property for success, make sure to use a convenient rental application and screening tool so that you can guarantee that your tenant will both pay your price and take care of your property.
