Guarantee Stellar Property Showings

When you've got a vacancy, you'll do what it takes to ensure it is filled as quickly as possible. While you've undoubtedly given dozens of property showings in your tenure, using these tips to step up your game can help you fill vacant rentals faster. Scott Safadi of Cal Bay Property Management recommends these ideas to guarantee the best possible showings:

 

Fresh Scents

 

Nothing turns a person off faster than the smell of decay, mold or other signs of disuse or neglect. Even when an apartment is otherwise impressive, bad smells can be enough to convince folks to keep looking. While it's easy to plug in an air freshener and call it a day, that's rarely good enough to completely solve the problem. Rather than covering up bad smells, work to eliminate odors instead. While it might be more work upfront, the effort will pay off!

 

Sparkling Surfaces

 

Kitchens and bathrooms are more important than many folks realize. They are where we spend a large chunk of our waking hours, and when they look good, they feel good to live in. When kitchen counters and bathtubs are sparkling clean and free of dust, folks can easily picture themselves using such spaces. Make sure never to overlook such spots, because they can make or break a person's decision to move in!

 

Patio and Balcony Focus

 

While many apartments are built with patios or balconies, few property managers have managed to market these spaces as additional square footage. Ensure that you show off these features, along with common spaces like pools, gyms and other mixed use facilities. You'd be surprised at how often these fantastic features are overlooked by staff and prospective tenants alike!
