Purchasing rental property in the Central Valley is only the first step to long term success with owning Real Estate because, if you don’t master the art of building great relationships with your renters you won’t have long term, dependable cash flow.
In today’s post we will provide you with 5 tips you can use to build great relationships with your tenants.
Tip #1 – Start Your Relationship Strong by Doing This
Before your tenant arrives to move into your rental property make sure you clean the property thoroughly, paint inside, do pest control outside and confirm that all doors and windows securely close and lock.
Tip #2 – Respect Your Tenants Time
If you need to come to your rental property to do repairs or install new appliances make sure that you respect your tenants time and schedule an appointment with them rather than just showing up or telling them when you are going to stop by.
Tip #3 – Be Consistent
It doesn’t matter if you’re busy, or have a family, you should always be consistent with your tenants because, if they know they can depend on you to solve their rental problems, and they will be more inclined to continue renting from you when their lease is due for renewal.
Tip #4 – Treat Pest Control Seriously
Always be proactive with pest control by scheduling your property to be sprayed on a monthly basis and you should also email your tenants to make sure that they are not dealing with pests inside your rental property.
Tip #5 – Reward Your Renters
Last of all, you should take the time to show your renters that you care during the year by sending them a gift card periodically to thank them for renting from you or giving them rewards for paying their bills on time or renewing their lease with you.
