Tips for landlords on securing the best tenant
Presenting your property professionally is one of the secrets of securing a quality tenant, at the best price, in the shortest possible time.
Turner Real Estate is constantly measuring how long properties take to lease and we are consistently ahead of the average as we offer landlords honest advice on appropriate rental amounts and help them with their property presentation.
Many landlords are taking our advice of having professional photography before the property is let and the results speak for themselves. On average, properties with professional photography receive double the amount of website traffic and inquiries. And this translates to people at opens and the application forms coming in faster.
Just like properties we offer for sale, presentation is critical. Even a two-bedroom unit looks markedly better with the eye of a top photographer behind it. This small investment in photography can also be used over several tenancies, as long as the property remains the same.
When the market is competitive and tenants have the ability to be a little fussy, all the little things add up to winning a tenant faster.
As we are a large team, we conduct open inspections at all times during the week which offers flexibility for the busy lives that we all lead now. Holding mid-week opens, as well as additional opens delivers our consistently low vacancy rates and time on market.
At Turner Real Estate we screen tenants extensively and check all references before we make our recommendations to the landlord on the most suitable tenant.
