3. MOVE-IN READY CONDITION
          Remember, you only get one chance to make a
          great first impression and to set the expectation
          of how your property should be maintained. So,
          be sure your property is ready to show when
          you list it. If a property requires paint, carpet, or
          cleaning, it could turn off a prospective tenant.


          4. UPGRADES AND LAUNDRY FACILITIES
          It’s the little details that make a house feel like
          a home. Strategic upgrades like stainless steel
          appliances and hardwood flooring help attract
          a higher quality tenant. Updated kitchens and
          bathrooms are especially appealing to tenants,
          even simple upgrades like a new kitchen
          backsplash or updated cabinet hardware can
          make a significant impact. The more a place
          feels like home, the longer a quality tenant is
          likely to stay.

          Another amenity tenant’s look for are in-unit
          washers and dryers. Packing up and carrying
          laundry to a laundromat is inconvenient and
          time-consuming. Having an in-unit washer
          and dryer is a highly desirable amenity, and
          many tenants are willing to pay extra for the
          convenience.


          5. LARGE STORAGE SPACES
          Is there ever enough storage? Storage spaces
          are one of the most sought-after features renters
          want. Spacious walk-in closets and large kitchen
          pantries are huge draws for prospective tenants.
          Additionally, a floored attic or storage shed are
          other options for tenants to keep their home
          clutter-free.


          6. SMART-HOME FEATURES
          With all the technology available today, it’s
          no surprise that many tenants are looking for
          properties that are smart and tech-savvy. Adding
          a few renter-friendly devices will set you apart
          and provide added convenience for your tenant.
          Integrated functionality of Smart Home
          Hubs with thermostats and door locks adds
          convenience, security, and reduced wear on
          HVAC systems.
