What South Bay Renters Want in a Home
Home – be it a single family house or an apartment – is where the heart is. At Harbor Property Management, we strive to make sure all our tenants are happy and content. Not only that, we know that both renters and owners are interested in a good deal. We know that the longer a good tenant stays in a rental property, the better it is for the owner. That’s why as a property management company, we successfully match tenants and owners because we know what South Bay residents want in a rental.
How do we know their desires and priorities? We just ask!
Location and Comfort
Location is often the first priority for South Bay renters. After that, most potential tenants want a home that feels good to them, a place that fits their family and their lifestyle, and is comfortably within their budget. The closer we can get to their desires and expectations, the better the chances of a lease renewal.
Are there specific things an owner can provide that will enhance the property and increase the likelihood of a long term rental?
Things that look new are very good selling points for every renter. Stainless steel appliances make a home look clean, modern, and inviting. Having enough refrigerator and freezer space can make or break a deal. A glass-top stove and matching built-in microwave are standards in a contemporary kitchen. An island sink with great counter space and a dishwasher can inspire a chef to create a masterpiece. A laundry room with a good, heavy-duty washer and dryer is almost essential and is a huge benefit for the renter.
Sometimes it pays to consider a renovation of the property before seeking the next renter. People want to feel like they are the first occupants of a new house. A new carpet; professionally refinished flooring; a fresh coat of paint; and updated landscaping are some quick ways to give new life to a home. Opening up space or creating an extra room addition or bathroom takes more time and money. But these may also be just the ticket for a better investment and for drawing your next potential tenant to stay for a longer period of time.
