In 2022 there’s no doubt that rental property is still a smart investment but it’s more important than ever before to ensure that your properties are safe.
If it’s been a while since you’ve visited your PDX rental property, this article will offer you several tips you can use to ensure that it’s safe and secure.
Tip #1 – Make The Entryway Safe And Secure
It doesn’t matter if you own multifamily rental property in Portland, or a single-family rental, the entryway to your property must be safe for your tenants because crime often occurs when people come home.
Start by adding lights to the driveway and walkway leading up to your tenant’s front door, remove tall vegetation, any place that a criminal could hide, and make sure that your tenants have a clear line of sight to their front door.
Tip #2 – Secure Doors And Windows
Since criminals often break into properties through either a door or window, it’s important to make sure that they are secure.
Older wood doors should be replaced with steel security doors and windows should tested to ensure that they can’t be opened from the outside.
Tip #3 – Invest In A Doorbell Camera For Your Property
Last of all, but most important, you should invest in a doorbell camera for the front door to your rental property because a door doorbell camera gives the tenant the ability to see who is standing outside the door before opening it.
Also, make sure that you add stickers to the windows of your rental property that makes it very clear that your rental property is being monitored because criminals frequently pass up on properties that they know are being monitored.
