When preparing your property to let, your standards need to be high if you want to attract the right tenant. Slapdash work and poorly maintained interior would probable lead to a tenant with a similar attitude – not a good start.
Keep the decor simple; neutral colour schemes and furnishings are unlikely to offend other peoples taste and will help you let your property quickly. Really think about the property you are trying to let. There’s no point installing high-spec fixtures and fitting in a one bedroom property in an area likely to attract a graduate, likewise, a flat decked out in budget furniture from a well known store won’t go down well with a top city lawyer. In your haste to let the property, don’t neglect the garden or balcony, if there is one. Good, usable outside space comes at a premium, especially in major towns and cities, and can greatly increase your rental yield. If you are in doubt speak to us at Gables and we will give you good advice on the best way to present your property.
