IT’S ON THE HOUSE
Insights and advice for property investors & home owners.
Good tenants are gold. They pay rent on time, every time, and treat your home as their own. To add to the peace of mind of knowing your home is being well looked after, good tenants usually mean fewer issues, lower maintenance costs, regular income and increased value growth. So while getting your home ready for the rental market, it makes sense to keep your ideal tenant in mind.
Tenants are often choosy, and rightfully so. We all want to live somewhere comfortable and safe, somewhere that feels like ‘home’. Rod Stapleton, one of Quinovic’s Business Development Managers, believes that tenants want “a property that looks good, is uplifting and inspiring and that they feel happy to have guests visit”.

If your home is in need of more than a little sprucing up, there are some other improvements you can make to increase its appeal – and hopefully secure more rent.
Here are Rod Stapleton’s tips for the lowest cost improvements that will make the most difference:
If you’re planning on being a landlord, have you thought about how much time you’re prepared to devote to the job. As well as finding tenants and collecting rent, you’ll need to stay on top of repairs and maintenance. Are you happy to be on call day and night? If you’re lucky and get good tenants, being a landlord might not be too demanding. But it’s worth considering how you’ll cope if things don’t go so smoothly.
The alternative to managing everything yourself is having someone take your property off your hands. Not only does this make the whole rental process easier, professional property managers, like Quinovic, can protect the value of your home by committing to working on it all the time.
