Presentation Tips

 

  • Tend the gardens, mow the lawns and clean the windows, paths, gutters and outside paintwork. Street appeal is vital - you don’t want prospective tenants to dismiss your rental property before getting to the front door.

 

  • Repair or replace leaking taps, sticking doors, broken light fittings, loose door handles, rotten floor boards, leaky gutters and torn fly screens.

 

  • If painting, we recommend a neutral colour scheme, which is not only timeless but also has the widest appeal.

 

  • Consider having the carpets and curtains cleaned.

 

  • Open the curtains and blinds to invite the outdoors in, making your rental property look and feel more spacious.

 

  • Ensure the rental property is clean, tidy, uncluttered and free of any unpleasant odours (such as pet smells) at inspection times.

 

  • If your rental property has a pool or a spa ensure that the fences comply with the legislative requirement. Also make sure the pool and equipment are clean and in good order. You want the prospective tenants to think of the pool as an asset, not a burden.

 

  • Ensure all electrical wiring and power points are safe, including any electrical appliances to be included with the rental property.

 

  • Take out Comprehensive Insurance cover on your rental property (including Public Liability Insurance) to avoid any risks once people start viewing your property.
