Yes, it’s that time of year again. Just a couple more weeks until the big man in the red suit comes to visit! Quality tenants are priceless and as a landlord, you may very well wish to show your Marlborough renters a token of your appreciation this festive season. While a bottle of wine, a box of chocolates or a house plant will no doubt be well received. We thought we’d share three things your tenants really want for Christmas!
What your Marlborough renters really want for Christmas:
A well-maintained home:
Yes, it’s your investment property, but it’s also your tenants home. Recognise this by maintaining the property well. At Bayleys Marlborough we can do this for you. We arrange reliable, competitively priced contractors or can work with the contractor of your choice if you prefer.
A low-cost winter:
We know summer has barely begun. But the warmer months aren’t just a good time to carry out maintenance on your rental property. It’s also a great time of year to tackle some improvements. Think how impressed your Marlborough renters would be if you gave them the gift of lower winter heating bills. If you’re renting an older property you may need to improve insulation under the ‘Healthy Homes Insulation Standard’.
But if you want happy (and long-term) tenants it’s important to consider other ways that your property can be heated effectively. Heat pumps might seem like a big outlay initially, but if installing one is key to keeping your Marlborough renters in situ, it’s got to be a good investment! If you’ve just bought a rental property, our Bayleys Marlborough Property Management team are happy to offer you a property appraisal so that you can maximise your rental income.
Somebody to call over the festive period:
Managing rental property can be a full-time job! And during the summer holidays, we know you have other things to do. When your Marlborough renters have a maintenance issue it often needs prompt attention. Don’t leave them hanging on the phone or waiting for a callback. They’d prefer the gift of knowing the Bayleys Marlborough Property Management are close at hand. Let us manage your property, and we address any maintenance issues on your behalf and within a time frame that your tenants will appreciate.
