How to Make your Hayward Rental Property Rent Faster

Deanna Hansen - Friday, February 22, 2013

If you want your property to rent faster, one of the best things you can do is create a good first impression. The first impression is the most important. When a potential tenant pulls up to your house, the tenant wants to know that it is a nice looking home, with a well maintained lawn, trimmed shrubs and a fresh coat of paint on the outside. Everything should really look nice so the tenants are encouraged to take a look inside.

When the tenants walk into the home, they want to feel welcome. They want to get the impression that it would be a nice place to live. The carpets should be clean, there should be fresh paint on the walls and everything should be in working condition and look good. As I said, you want them to walk into that house and say, “this is where I want to live.”

Make sure you have the right upgrades in place for the property. If your kitchen countertops are a few years old, think about installing a new kitchen counter. If you have not painted the cupboards in 10 years, you need to have those cabinets painted or at least oiled and cleaned. These upgrades will help you create the best first impression you can.

Price the house according to the market. I have people call me occasionally and say they have a two bedroom, one bath property in Hayward that they want to put on the market. They tell me their mortgage is $1,800, and their taxes are $300, so they need to make at least $2,100 in rent. While I understand the math, I have to let them know that the property in that area will only get around $1,200 per month. So, if yo How to Make your Hayward Property Rent Fasteru price your property way out of its league, you will not rent it quickly. You might not rent it at all, and if you do, it won’t be to quality tenants. Good tenants can have any property they want. If tenants have good credit, good landlord references and a stable income, they have choices. They will not take a property that is overpriced. The only tenants who will take overpriced properties are desperate people, and you do not want them living in your house.
