tidy home

A large part of getting your property rented comes down to having good showings. Your home needs to be inviting to prospective tenants, so we have compiled a few suggestions to make your rental property “stand out”:

  1. Clear out the clutter! People are easily distracted by your mess. Get it out of there! Furniture can be a large part of that. Professional stagers often get rid of up to half of the home owner’s furniture. If furniture does not stay with the rental property, then you don’t have to worry about it!
  2. Beautiful lighting. Increase the wattage of your lamps, and make the space feel more bright and cozy with more lamps, and less overhead lighting.
  3. Neutral colors. Paint your walls in neutral and appealing colors. Do you know anyone that would want to rent a home with lime green or fushia walls? Neither do we!
  4. Wall art/decor. Make potential renters feel like this could be their home. Add beautiful, but inexpensive wall art or decor to make the face immediately feel like home.
  5. Fresh flowers. Flowers brighten up any space, and immediately bring color and class to the room.
  6. Scent. Light your Scentsy or candles. Make the space welcoming and inviting. Have you ever been to a William Sonoma? Recreate that wonderful scent in your own home! {Fill a pot 2/3 full with water, add a few sprigs of fresh rosemary, a sliced lemon and one to two tablespoons of vanilla extra. Let mixture simmer on low, and refill the water as needed.}
  7. Make your kitchen look new. If you can’t afford to remodel your kitchen, do a few minor changes that make a big impact. Get new drawer and cabinet handles. Paint the cabinets.
  8. Make the bedroom appealing to both sexes. Add feminine and masculine touches and colors, to appeal to men and women.
  9. Replace or thoroughly clean old, smelly carpet. This one is obvious! Especially for pet owners. Renters will walk in, and walk straight out if they smell pet (or human) odors.
