Your Portland Oregon Rental Property has been for rent for a while now but, even though you’ve placed ads to promote it on websites like Craigslist.org, forrent.com or Zillow.com, renters are not showing any interest in your property, and you’re starting to wonder why.
In today’s post we will break down areas of your home which could actually be scaring away renters so you will know to fix those problem areas and get your home back on track.
Scary Curb Appeal
Did you know that most renters won’t get out of their vehicles if a single family home, condo, townhome or rental property has “scary” curb appeal?
If your Portland Oregon Rental Property has overgrown bushes, shaggy trees or tall grass, then it’s time to do a major property clean up.
Once you do a property clean up you should then focus on buying new plants, planting new grass and making your rental property curb appeal more appealing to renters.
The Inside of Your Portland Rental Property “Seems” Haunted
When was the last time that you actually spent any time in your Portland Rental Property? If it’s been a while, take the time to really think like a renter and examine the inside of your rental property.
- Do the doors squeak?
- Is there a draft coming through closed windows?
- Are the light bulbs flickering when you turn them on?
- Does the carpeting have a strange smell coming from it?
Thinking like a renter will actually help you to see your rental property through THEIR eyes and get you to finally observe what could be driving potential renters away.
