Summer is upon us once again and we know this can be a lucrative time of year for those that have purchased homes for sale in Reunion Country Club. The perfect time to prepare your your home for to rent is before the summer rush, but if you find yourself in the middle of the summer needing tips, we’ve got you covered.
1. Get Appliances in Tip-Top Shape
You don’t want to disappoint renters with unexpected leaky pipes or an HVAC system that doesn’t work. This is the fastest way to lose renters and receive bad reviews. Whatever is broken, fix it promptly or replace it.
2. Give the Home a Deep Clean
If the property is uninhabitable and has an unpleasant odor, you’ll hear about it on popular review sites. Thoroughly clean the inside and outside of the home. Hire professionals to clean your carpets and air vents. When guests enter the home it should smell fresh and your walls, floors, and bathrooms should be odor and stain free.
3. Be Generous With Upgrades
Your appliances may not be broken, but upgrading to top-grade energy-efficient appliances will appeal more to renters. Replace outdated furniture with more tasteful pieces. If beds are not comfortable, invest in ones that will ensure guests get a good night’s rest. Add in extras like pool tables or convert a room into a movie room with an oversized couch and mini kitchenette for days guests want to stay in a relax.
4. Stock Up on Supplies
Keep the home well-stocked with supplies, guests will appreciate the extra touch. Stock the pool area with extra towels, pool floats, and toys for kids. Stock up on plates, utensils, paper towels, cleaning supplies, and even a few drinks and snacks for guests to enjoy. It’s worth mentioning that summertimes in Florida mean hurricane season so have flashlights, first aid kids, candles, and extra batteries on hand.
5. Boost Curb Appeal
Your exterior needs to be attractive. This will set your property apart from others. Welcome guests to a professionally designed landscape with a freshly manicured lawn with flowers and shrubbery. Get paved areas cleaned and sealed. Repaint the front door and place a season inspired wreath on the door. Make sure windows are presentable by fixing broken blinds and cleaning smudges.
It’s the little things that make all the difference. Guests can tell when you care about their stay by the extra mile you go to make them happy and comfortable.
