HOUSTON, TX. – Do you own a Houston Texas Rental Property that’s not attracting the attention of renters and you can’t figure out why? Although this is frustrating when it happens the reality is that there could be one or more reasons why renters are showing a lack of interest in your rental property and the following steps will help you to get to the bottom of the problem and fix it.
Step #1 – Check Your Rent
Although every landlord wants to rent their Houston Texas Rental Property for the most money possible the reality is that some people may be listing their rentals for more than they should.
To figure out what you should be renting your property for you should do a comparable analysis of similar rentals in your area to determine if you should consider lowering your rent a little in order to attract more tenants.
Step #2 – Improve Your Rental Ads
Let’s face it, advertising is the lifeblood of our business because it’s what helps renters find our Houston Texas Rental Properties.
Sadly, many landlords are running poor advertisements that are turning away potential renters rather than attracting them.
Before running another rental ad you should first take better pictures and video of your rental property then take a look at your ad copy, rewrite the headline, and revise the body copy so that your advertisement talks about all of the benefits, features, and amenities that your rental offers prospective tenants.
Step #3 – Bring Your Houston Texas Rental Property Up To Date
If the last time you updated your Houston Texas Rental Property was before the start of the millennium, you should start making some updates now because new flooring, window coverings, appliances and fixtures in a rental property can go the extra mile with making a rental feel fresh, new, and updated.
Step #4 – Think About Allowing Pets
In 2017 there are more renters out there than ever before who are searching for rental properties that will allow pets. If you don’t allow pets at your Houston Texas Rental Property you should consider changing your pet policy because you will open up your rental to a larger pool of prospective tenants, just make sure to update your lease agreement before renting to someone with a pet.
Step #5 – Ask Your Current Tenants for Referrals
Last of all, but most important, if you have tenants living in your other rental properties you should consider asking them for referrals because the chances are that they might know someone who is looking for a rental and this will save you the time/money and hassle of having to advertise your Houston Rental Property.
