Renting can be often be difficult; whether it’s about renting an apartment, a condo, or a single-family home, the process of finding the right tenant is never easy. Once you find the right tenant, you want to make sure they are also long term tenants. So how can you ensure your tenants are in it for the long run and don’t leave as soon as their lease ends? Take a look at some of our successful tips!
1. Maintenance Maintenance, Maintenance
One of the most common reason for tensions between tenants and landlords is due to maintenance issues. Try responding to maintenance requests as soon as possible, and if for some reason you are unable to complete the request, make sure you communicate with your tenant to let them know you are aware of the issue and will be fixing it soon.
2. Make the Community Feel Safe
This may seem like an obvious concept, but it is sometimes overlooked. Make sure to keep your tenants informed of any security concerns and let them know what safety measures have been taken throughout the community.
3. Show Respect for Tenant Privacy
Always show respect for a tenant’s personal space. It is one of the top ways to ensure more tenants stick around for the long run.
