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

Statesville Rental Property with a For Rent Sign in the Front to Attract New RentersAppealing to quality tenants is a property owner’s top priority. While each renter is going to be searching for a property that matches their individual needs, there are some features in single-family rental homes that typically jump straight to the top of a prospective renter’s wish list. Identifying what tenants want, and which features are going to help your rental homes bring in your desired kind of renters, can help your Statesville rental properties stick out, even in a highly competitive market.

Possibly the first and most evident aspect of an appealing rental home is a property that is clean as well as in good condition. When a rental home bears marks of regular maintenance and updated features, tenants see an owner who cares for their property. When the time comes for them to request for repairs or maintenance, interested renters will associate a well-kept home with a landlord likely to efficiently fulfill their requests.

Another essential component that potential renters want in a single-family rental home is up-to-date appliances. Because people typically spend plenty of time there, the kitchen is an important space in a single-family home. Part of enjoying their home is having updated kitchen appliances so as to have quality mealtime with the family.

Location is always an important part of real estate investing, but what makes a location a good one? Homes that are in high demand are located within close distance to parks, schools, restaurants, and other typical venues. While the location is an element wherein you have very little control over, it is important to note amenities close by and make sure these are included in your marketing materials.

Besides location, potential tenants are almost always looking for space too. Space for a family, a hobby, storage, parking, and maybe even a pet. One thing that a property owner can do to attract quality renters is to have attractive and low-maintenance yards in their Statesville rental homes. Since gatherings and other activities are a big portion of daily life, a property that holds enough space for these things will be more appealing to people planning to rent a home.

Another valuable thing that can fill vacancies and retain tenants long-term is providing a pet clause in the lease, allowing renters to have approved animals on the property. People love their pets, and single-family homes that would accommodate pet lovers will always be attractive.

Other things that a property owner can do to make their rental homes more interesting to quality renters is providing laundry hook-ups and, in warmer climates, central air conditioning. Laundry is a part of family life, and room for a washer and dryer is an absolute requirement if you want to bring in a long-term quality tenant to your single-family rental home. Air conditioning is also a must for warmer climates. Renters usually choose one rental home over another simply on account of reliable air conditioning.
