10 Steps To Preparing Your Property For Rent

Step 1 – Accurate Valuation

Your aim should be to let your property at the best possible price in the shortest possible time to the best possible tenant.

Step 2 – Length of Tenancy?

Longer term tenancies are favourable and highly sought after throughout Launceston.

We can tailor the advertising to suit whether you choose a long or a short term lease. Some owners advertise the property as long and short term lets however, short lets generally need to be furnished.

Property Management can be the key to reaping maximum rental returns on your property.

Step 4 – Presenting your Property

First impressions count, how you present your property is critical to a successful let.

Consider addressing any DIY jobs you have been meaning to get done, add a fresh coat of paint where necessary and try to de-clutter to make rooms appear larger.
