A Landlord’s Guide to Attracting Renters in the Kissimmee Single-Family Residence Market

Kissimmee Rental Property with a For Rent Sign in the Front to Attract New RentersAttracting quality tenants is a property owner’s highest priority. While each renter is going to be searching for a property that fulfills their specific needs, there are some features in single-family rental homes that consistently go straight to the top of a prospective renter’s wish list. Identifying what tenants are looking for, and which features will help your rental homes bring in the kind of renters you want, can help your Kissimmee rental properties stick out, even in a highly competitive market.

Perhaps the first and most prominent aspect of an appealing rental home is a property that is clean and in good repair. When a rental home has updated features and shows signs of ongoing maintenance, tenants see an owner who looks after their property. When it comes time to ask for repairs or maintenance, interested renters are going to associate a cared-for home with a landlord who is to likely accommodate their requests efficiently.

Another important feature that potential renters want in a single-family rental home are updated appliances. The kitchen is a central space in a single-family home because people typically spend lots of time there. Part of enjoying their home is having updated kitchen appliances for great mealtimes with the family.

Location is always a significant part of real estate investing, but what makes a location good? Extremely sought-after homes are those within comfortable distances to parks, schools, restaurants, and other common venues. While the location is one element which you may not have a great deal of control over, you need to note nearby amenities and list those in your marketing materials.

Along with location, potential tenants are almost always looking for space. Space for a family, a hobby, storage, parking, and maybe even a pet. One thing that a property owner can do to entice quality renters is to make sure that their Kissimmee rental homes have yards that are beautiful yet easy to maintain. Gatherings and other activities are a substantial part of day-to-day life, and a property that has enough space for these is going to hold more appeal to people looking to rent a home.

Another valuable thing that can fill vacancies and retain tenants long-term is providing a pet clause in the lease, allowing renters to have approved animals on the property. People love their pets, and single-family homes that would accommodate pet lovers will always hold appeal.

Other things that a property owner can do to their rental homes to attract quality renters more is by offering laundry hook-ups and, in places with warmer climates, central air conditioning. Laundry is a part of family life and having an area for a washer and dryer is necessary if you want to bring in a long-term quality tenant to your single-family rental home. Air conditioning is also needed for warmer climates. Renters usually pick one rental home over another just because of reliable air conditioning.
