  • 1. 10 Ways to Attract Good Tenants<br />1.  Dress professionally.  First impressions matter and will set the tone for your relationship with the tenant. <br />2.  Allow pets.  Many property management companies will no longer permit pets.  Being pet-friendly can set you apart and attract more potential tenants to you. <br />3.  Be organized and have procedures in place.  If you are disorganized, it will make the tenants think you don't care.  Have checklists and paperwork in order. <br />4.  Show that you care for the property and the tenants will care too.  Even if it's outdated in areas, a clean property can overcome many objections.  Wash the windows, manicure the yard..show some pride of ownership. <br />5.  Offer a discount for a multi-year lease and/or for payroll/bank draft setup.   <br />6.  Let them know that you will be accessing the property every other month for a maintenance checkup.  Ask the tenants to put any non-emergency maintenance items on a list on the refrigerator so you can address them on your visit. <br />7.  Send them birthday cards.  Yes, it is a business transaction; however, showing you care can go a long way. <br />8.  Include a washer and dryer.   <br />9.  If due to economic conditions, you need to offer a free month of rent...NEVER offer the first month free.  You are inviting deadbeats to live in your property for free for 30 days.  Instead, offer the free month after 6 months or over the holidays. <br />10.  Be present.  Be available.  Lack of communication can quickly break down the tenant/landlord relationship.  Respond to their questions and concerns promptly. <br />Wolkia.com<br />“Helping real estate embrace technology”<br />Facebook.com/realestatetechnology<br />
