Not all tenants will want a furnished property, however, dressing your property when marketing it can make a huge difference when trying to attract good tenants. Showing how the property can be utilised to its full effect will capture the prospective tenants imagination and help them to visualise living in the property.
Consider your market when furnishing the property. for example a family property needs plenty of seating, dining space and storage.
Make your property stand out, neutral colours are great when you want to let a property, however, by using a few finishing touches, such as, painting a feature wall, updating kitchen handles or installing a designer tap can bring your property to life.
Use easy clean finishes in your property. Not only will this be more attractive to tenants who want a low maintenance home but will also be easier to clean and maintain in between tenancies.
Hard floorings like tiles and laminates rather than carpets, sofas with removable and washable covers and shower screens rather than a curtain are all simple touches which will help to achieve an attractive low maintenance and clean property for your prospective tenants.
Ensure the exterior of the property is maintained, cut the grass in the garden, clear weeds and dress the patio to show off the possibility of alfresco dining (when the British weather allows of course)!
A property that is looked after will let much more quickly than one that has been neglected.
