Spring has sprung, and it’s time for property owners to prepare their investments for the people. Whether you’re looking to target new or current tenants, both will be impressed with a beautiful outdoor atmosphere to enjoy.
The investment of time and finances it will take to have all of your properties looking top notch is worth the return you will experience in interest. Here is a brief rundown of a few tips that will help you prepare your rental properties for springtime and boost interest in your investments.
Clean up the excess clutter
Some climates experience a pretty rough winter, and the yards of your rental properties could be left looking a little unkempt. Clearing out excess sticks and limbs will help to prepare your property for warmer weather.
When spring rolls around, people want to go outside. Make it a pleasant adventure for your tenants to venture out into their surroundings.
Begin maintaining a gorgeous landscape
It’s past time to get started on your rental property landscape. People enjoy gorgeous flowers, well maintained bushes, and clean cut edges. Hire a professional commercial lawn service to take care of all the gardening and mowing for your different rental properties.
Leaving the landscape of your rental properties unattended will really put a damper on business. No one stops by an overgrown property and gets a special feeling. You want to encourage happiness and positivity with the right splashes of nature.
Give the exterior of your buildings a facelift
Spring is also a great time to tend to the outside of the actual building. It’s good to run a quick pressure washer along siding or other sturdy exteriors to wash off the buildup of the year. Complete this process once a year, and your properties will continue looking newer for longer.
Check and clean the air systems
Spring means warmer weather, and warmer weather means your tenants will need the use of their HVAC units. It’s your responsibility to make sure that everyone has the ability to stay cool and comfortable in their homes.
Regular maintenance for your AC units is great for the longevity of the systems. It’s expensive to replace an AC or HVAC unit, so take care of the property you have now.
Spring is a great time to check fire safety systems
Test and maintain your fire safety systems on all of your individual properties to look after the well-being of your tenants. You could also get into a lot of legal trouble if your failure to maintain fire safety systems ultimately causes harm to one of your tenants.
Check all fire extinguishers and smoke detectors inside of your rental properties. It’s also helpful to brush up on the current fire laws and protocols for your area.
