Tips To Prepare Your Rental Property For Viewings written by Cerys Winn, Lettings Negotiator:

As a letting agent, I know that making a good first impression is crucial when it comes to showing potential tenants around a property. A well-presented and clean property is more likely to attract the right kind of tenants who will take good care of the property. In this blog, I will share some of my tips on how to make your property viewing ready.

Tidy up

Before any viewing, it’s important to ensure the property is tidy and presentable. Ensure all surfaces are cleared of clutter and that floors are as clear as possible. This will not only create a good first impression but also give the impression of a more spacious property. Make sure all laundry is put away and washing up is done.

Ventilate

Ensure the property is well ventilated. Open windows or use air fresheners to ensure the property smells fresh and welcoming. This is particularly important if the property has been unoccupied for a while.

Clean surfaces

Dust all surfaces, including shelves, mantelpieces, and any other visible surfaces. Pay attention to areas that can accumulate dust and dirt, such as skirting boards, light fixtures, and ceiling corners. This will help to make the property look cleaner and more attractive to potential tenants.

Garden

If there is a garden at the property, ensure it is well-presented. Mow the lawn, weed flower beds, and trim any overgrown bushes or trees. This will help to create a welcoming and relaxing outdoor space for potential tenants to enjoy.

Open curtains and blinds

Open all curtains and blinds to let in natural light. This will help to create a bright and inviting atmosphere, making the property look more spacious and attractive.

Confidential information

Make sure to remove any confidential information, such as bills or personal paperwork, from surfaces. This will help to create a tidy appearance, giving tenants peace of mind that their personal information will be kept confidential.

In summary, ensuring your property is viewing ready is a crucial step in attracting the right tenants. By following these simple steps, you can create a welcoming and attractive environment that will make potential tenants want to call your property home.
