Tips For Reducing Single Family Vacancies In 2021
One of the worst things that a landlord has to deal with is single family vacancies because they mean one thing, a landlord will have to cover the mortgage payment for their property until they find their next tenant.
Thankfully, reducing single-family vacancies is easier than you think, especially if you follow these tips.
Tip #1 – Focus On Improving Your Single Family Home
If it’s been a while since you’ve improved your Portland Oregon home, it’s time to take steps to improve it by doing the following:
- Improve curb appeal
- Paint the inside of the property
- Add new light fixtures
- Resurface cabinets and add new hardware
- Invest in new appliances
Making improvements to your property will help it to stand out from other rentals and make it more appealing to people who don’t like to live in properties that look old or rentals that have not been well maintained.
Tip #2 – Review Your Rental Listing
Most landlords who are longtime owners or rental properties typically have ‘go-to’ listings that they wrote long ago whenever they have vacancies.
Instead of using your old rental listings, take the time to write new listings, including shooting new pictures and videos of your property because having a new listing will attract the curiosity of tenants and lead to more rental applications.
Tip #3 – Hire A Property Manager
Last of all, but most important, another excellent thing that you should do to reduce vacancies is to hire a property management company like Rent Portland Homes – Professionals.
