Making your investment ready for tenancy isn’t as daunting as it seems. When a tenant moves into a property, they have the right to have it clean, maintained and in a liveable condition. Bailey Devine Real Estate suggests that the property is professionally cleaned, carpets steam cleaned, and the lawns mowed, and gardens weeded.
The Property Condition Report state the condition of the property at the time of the tenant taking possession of the property. This will show how the property is presented, cleaned and maintained. The Property Condition Report provides the guidelines for the tenants of how the property should be left when vacating minus fair wear and tear.
Professional Photos Are Crucial
To enable Bailey Devine to market your property to a high standard we encourage professional photography to be taken at your investment property. Our photographer will ensure there is as much light in the rooms as possible, best angles are taken and they highlight the features of your home. Statistics show that tenants look through photos for cleanliness, design, and property features before anything else.
Maintaining And Repairing Your Property
If a tenant complains about a maintenance issue at your investment property, we strongly suggest trying to address the problems quickly. New paint, carpets, blinds and light fixtures can really transform your property and give you depreciation benefits too.
Pet Friendly Property
Even if you are not a ‘pet person’ yourself, a lot of prospective tenants are. It can be quite hard to find properties which are pet friendly, some tenants are willing to pay slightly higher rent to keep their four-legged family member.
If you require some work to be completed prior to tenants moving in, Bailey Devine Real Estate can arrange any tradespeople, cleaners, gardeners or handymen on your behalf.
