There are many rental properties in Cyprus so competition on finding a great tenant is high. To attract the best possible tenant there are certain things you need to provide such as good appliances and utilities.
In this article we have listed some of the best features needed to attract your ideal tenant. We have also explained why these features benefit you and your potential tenant.
Is your Rental Property Ready for Tenants?
One of the first things a potential tenant will look for is whether your property is in good condition and ready for them to move in as soon as possible. Repairs and changes to a property can be disruptive and frustrating so it’s best to handle the maintenance before looking for occupants. First impressions count so if they see the place needs lots of repairs its very likely they will be put off.
Additionally, if the property is in poor condition it may influence the tenants to treat it as so. You want reassurance that your property is in the right hands and will be kept clean and tidy.
Rental Properties in Cyprus: Parking Spaces
A great rental property in Cyprus is not always accompanied with a guaranteed parking space. Nobody wants to be driving around for hours looking for parking especially when their food is defrosting in the back of the car. This often happens in more urban areas of Cyprus but if you own a rental property in the city that has guaranteed parking, well, you are likely to attract more potential tenants.
If you cannot offer parking then try to make sure you know the area well enough to tell potential tenants of good parking spots close by. If you can offer parking then make sure the tenants know the expectations and rules.
Tenants usually do not expect to purchase appliances such as washing machines. For them it would not make sense to invest in an appliance they may not need at future properties. You are much more likely to attract tenants if your rental property supplies all necessary appliances. You will also attract tenants if these appliances are new as they are less likely to break down and cause disruption to everyday life.
The process of attracting a tenant for rental properties in Cyprus can seem like a hassle at first. Repairs and maintenance needed as well as having to invest in some new appliances. However this is the best way to find those long term occupants that you want.
