When your property remains vacant between renter, it a loss in your passive income. We want share some great ways to minimize the gap between your renters. Understanding how to fill empty properties faster will help maintain a steady cash flow and ensure the longevity of your property. Here are some ways a Coeur d’Alene property management company can get you started in the right direction.
By rent-ready we mean the entirety of the property, ensuring it is ready to go from the front curb, throughout the unit, and to the back fence so that potential tenants feel the attention to detail, value, and worth you have attended to on the property. Real Property Management Coeur d’Alene knows that showing a property before it is completely ready can actually extend your vacancy period, and so we ensure that all cleaning and repairs are finished before advertising or showing a rental property.
Having a curb appeal for potential renters will encourage people to come in and take a look around on the inside.
Pull up to the curb of your unit yourself and do an honest evaluation of what you see. Would you want to rent the property yourself based on first appearances? A good Coeur d’Alene property management company will arrange for yard work and general repairs to the exterior. Without a good start on the outside, you’ll risk potential renters leaving before even taking a look at what the inside has to offer. And if not that then the curb side appeal is the first impression and sets the tone and mindset before you walk through the door.
Safety and Security

Also checking detectors such as smoke, radon, and carbon monoxide detectors are a must for the safety of your tenants, our policy is to regularly check these throughout the year, however between tenants is a great time. A good Coeur d’Alene property management company will help ensure you follow all regulations required for the safety and security of new tenants.
Complete all repairs and remodeling before showing the unit, and arrange for the clean up service after the renovations or remodel.
