Landlords – Tips to Get an Apartment Rented

Landlords learn the importance when showing an apartment through it’s design, appearance and amenities  are extremely important factors needed to attract a good tenant or tenants.

  • Emotions,  Yes Emotions.. Get your apartment rented through DESIGN.

Kitchen & Bathrooms are the most important rooms a landlord shows to a prospective tenant.  The picture of the red kitchen below is probably and little extreme for most rental properties but my point is that both the kitchen and bathroom should be up to date and clean.  A landlord should, if possible accomplish what is call the WOW factor.  Wouldn’t you think that when a landlord was to show prospective tenants the kitchen pictured below the first response from them would be WOW! .. said with their eyes wide open.  Yes, now you have connected with their emotions.   Again, this is a unique picture but remember that an up to date and clean kitchen can also accomplish the WOW factor.  A landlord can also dress it up with some highlights such as a small flower arrangement in the right place or places.

Modern kitchen

When a landlord offers an apartment for rent that is furnished a landlord should always make sure the furniture is not shabby or outdated.  This is a great opportunity for an apartment to be staged. Done properly with the right design, furniture and accents throughout it could then get the WOW factor from prospective tenants. iStock_000012720001XSmall
