Low cost ways to attract more tenants to your rental property

Do you own a Nevada County or Placer County investment rental property and are always wondering why it takes so long to re-rent every time there is a turn-over?  First impressions weigh heavily on perspective Tenants when they view a renal home.

Here are four simple ways to spruce up your rental property to make it more appealing to Grass Valley and Nevada City Tenants:

1. CURB APPEAL: If your Grass Valley rental home lacks curb appeal, the best thing you can do is to CLEAN it up as much as possible.  Rake the leaves, blow the roof, clean the gutters, pressure wash the decks and outside of the house, and wash the windows.  If your budget allows, plant some flowers too!

2. UPATE THE WINDOW COVERINGS: Nice window coverings are an inexpensive way to not only brighten up the inside of a home, but the idea works in your favor in the long run.  When you hang blinds or window treatments in your rental, the tenant doesn’t have to, which means less holes in your walls over time.  Home Depot and Lowe’s have low cost nice blinds.  Read our old blog post titled: Install Good Quality Blinds in a Rental for more information.

3. CLEAN THE INSIDE REALLY WELL: Tenants will always appreciate a clean home when they move in.  Remember to have the cleaning company clean behind and inside the stove and fridge, wipe all ceiling fans and light fixtures down, and wipe down walls and baseboards.  ALWAYS remember to have the carpets professionally cleaned.  And, if your budget allows, put a fresh coat of paint on the walls.

4. PROVIDE STORAGE: If your Nevada City rental property does not have a garage or any additional storage, add a storage shed.  Again, Home Depot and Lowe’s provide low-cost storage sheds which make any Nevada County rental home more attractive Tenants.  Read our old blog post titled: Lack of Outdoor Storage on a Nevada County Rental Property for more information on storage sheds.
