Five Secrets for Happy Tenants

At Gemstone Solutions, we really do desire to make your life easier. That’s why our mission statement is

Facilitating joy by making property ownership less burdensome and landlord-tenant relationships more peaceful.”

With this blog we’ll attempt to do that by occasionally offering tips and pearls into the adventurous arena of rental property ownership. So let’s get right to it . . .

Buildium recently published their 2016 American Renters Survey Report, entailing a whole 27 things you can make sure your rental property delivers to ensure happy tenants. In a nutshell it boils down to 5 quick pointers. You may or may not be able to provide each one of these or avoid number 1, but this is good information to have in your arsenal, whether thinking of DIYing it or enlisting the help of a professional.

Here’s the list:


1) WHY TENANTS LEAVE
    – Buying a house
    – Feel unsafe
    – Rising rent
    – Poor location
    – Bad landlord or Property Manager
 
2) WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT WHERE YOU LIVE? 
    –  Location (This was what 72% answered as the biggest factor)
    –  Quiet/privacy
    –  Neighborhood (walking distance to amenities, etc.)
 
3) MOST COMMONLY SOUGHT AMENITIES
    – Washer/dryer in unit
    – Internet
    – Central Air
 
4) TENANTS SEEK DIGITAL CONVENIENCE LIKE
    – ePay
    – Tenant portals
    – Text alerts
 
5) LOVING A RENTAL CORRELATES WITH LOVING A PM
    – Good property manager = happy tenant


Again, this is a great resource whether your going it on your own or looking to hire a management company for your rental. I’d be happy to share the full report if you like.
As always, we’d be thrilled to serve you by relieving some of the burden you are carrying.
