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

Largo Rental Property with a For Rent Sign in the Front to Attract New RentersAppealing to quality tenants is of the highest priority of a property owner. While all renters want a property that meets their specific needs, there are a few features of single-family rental homes that always rise to the top of a prospective renter’s wish list. Understanding what tenants want, and which features will help your rental homes draw in the kind of renters you want, can help your Largo rental properties stand out, even in a highly competitive market.

The first aspect of an attractive rental home is a property that is clean and in good repair. When a rental home has updated features and signs of ongoing maintenance, tenants see an owner who looks after their property. When it comes time to ask for repairs or maintenance, interested renters will associate a cared-for home with a landlord likely to accommodate their requests in an efficient manner.

Another important feature that potential renters look for in a single-family rental home is updated appliances. The kitchen is a crucial area in a single-family home because people often spend so much time there. Enjoying their home includes having updated kitchen appliances for quality family mealtime.

Location is always an important factor in real estate investing, but how do you know it’s a good location? Homes within a convenient distance to parks, schools, restaurants, and other popular venues are highly sought after. Location might be a factor you don’t have much control over, but it is important to consider nearby amenities and make certain these are listed in your marketing materials.

Along with location, potential tenants are always looking for space, space for a family, a hobby, storage, parking, and maybe even a pet. One thing that a property owner can do to draw in quality renters is to make certain that their Largo rental homes have attractive but low-maintenance yards. Gatherings and other activities are a huge part of day-to-day life, and a property that offers adequate space for these matters will be more attractive to people hoping to rent a home.

Another essential aspect that could help fill vacancies and retain tenants long-term is including a pet clause in the lease that permits renters to keep approved animals on the property. People love their pets, and single-family homes that are more welcoming to pet lovers will always be attractive.

Property owners can also offer laundry hook-ups and, in areas with warmer climates, central air conditioning. Laundry is a part of family life and having an area for a washer and dryer is necessary 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 pick one rental home over another just because of reliable air conditioning.
