Tenant safety is the key to success in owning rental properties in the Central Valley California, because crime is on the rise and everyone wants to stay safe.
Sadly, rental properties have become a target of criminals in recent years because they are often not as well-maintained as traditional homes.
Thankfully, you can do your part to ensure the safety of your rental property by following these simple tips.
Tip #1 – Improving Exterior Lighting
It doesn’t matter if you own a single-family, or multifamily rental property, lighting is one key ingredient that helps to make tenants feel safe while also keeping criminals at bay.
Your rental property should have good lighting in the parking area and the path leading up to their front door.
Having a well-lit path will ensure that tenants have peace of mind walking to their front door regardless if they come home in the early evening, or late at night.
Tip #2 – Remove Places To Hide
From overgrown bushes to out of place trash cans, you should remove all potential hiding places at your rental property because, if a criminal can’t find a place to hide and wait for someone to come home, they will be less inclined to commit their crime at that property.
Tip #3 – Invest In New Doors And Windows
Since criminals will either try to kick in a front door or pry open a window, you should also invest in new doors and windows for your property as well.
Having upgraded, security-efficient doors and windows is also an important selling point when attracting future tenants as well because every tenant is concerned about safety and security in today’s world.
