A Landlord’s Guide to Attracting Renters in the Dublin Single-Family Residence Market

Dublin Rental Property with a For Rent Sign in the Front to Attract New RentersAttracting excellent tenants is a property owner’s first priority. While every renter will be searching for a property that fits their particular needs, there are some features of single-family rental homes that always climb to the top of a prospective renter’s dream list. Identifying what tenants are seeking for, and which features will aid your rental homes to bring in the type of renters you want, can better increase your Dublin rental properties standing, even in a highly competitive market.

A rental home should be clean and well maintained. This is considered the best feature for an ideal rental home. When a rental home has obviously gone through maintenance and its features are updated, tenants would notice. They would think of the owner as a person who cares deeply about their property. When the point comes to request repairs or maintenance, interested renters will link a cared-for home with a landlord who will address their issues efficiently.

Another big feature that potential renters seek for in a single-family rental home are updated appliances. The kitchen is an important area in a single-family home because people frequently spend much time there. Enjoying their home includes using modern kitchen appliances to prepare scrumptious meals. Then all the family can gather around the dinner table and spend quality time with each other.

Location is always a significant part of real estate investing, but what creates a good location? Homes that potential tenants look for are oftentimes located close to parks, schools, restaurants, and other shared venues. While you may not have much control over the location of your property, make sure to write down what amenities are available nearby. You can then use this information in your marketing materials.

Along with location, potential tenants are almost always seeking out space. Space for a family, a hobby, storage, parking, and maybe even a pet. Something that a property owner can do to bring in quality renters is to make certain that their Dublin rental homes have beautiful and easy to maintain yards. Parties and other activities are a huge part of daily life, and a property that gives enough space for these events will hold more interest to people looking to rent a home.

There is another simple way to fill vacancies and retain tenants long-term. All you have to do is include a pet clause in the lease and the renters who love pets will be delighted because now they can keep their approved animals on the property. People love their pets, and single-family homes that are more accommodating for pet lovers will always be more attractive.

There are other things property owners can provide for their rental homes. Here are a couple of things that would draw in quality renters: Laundry hook-ups and, in warmer climates, central air-conditioning. Laundry is a part of living in a family, and provision for a washer and dryer in a home is essential. If you want to attract a long-term quality tenant to your single-family rental home, you must provide space for them. Air conditioning, too, is important for warmer climates. Renters often decide which home they would rent simply because of reliable air conditioning.
