Ensuring your property listing looks attractive to prospective tenants is a vital part of leasing your property quickly. While it may seem like an extra expense, having your property staged is a great way to help prospective tenants feel at home as soon as they look at your property. In this article, we share some key factors to consider.
Don't break the bank
Staging a property doesn't necessarily mean you need to spend lots of money. If you're currently living in your rental, you could rearrange the furniture, remove personal items and declutter so prospective tenants feel at home.
Remember: modern looks for mass appeal
Your property needs to appeal to as many prospective tenants as possible. Keep decor and furnishings, neutral and modern. You could opt for popular design aesthetics such as minimal Scandinavian design, a coastal Hamptons look or an urban and industrial feel.
Suppose your property look isn't cohesive, or the property is tenanted. In that case, it is often better to wait until the property is vacant and have new photos taken with virtual furniture added. It's cost-effective, and your agent can reuse the images for subsequent adverting campaigns.
Photos of empty rooms don't get any traction online. With advances in technology, those days are gone :) Virtual furniture will help prospective tenants see how they can set up their home and what comfortably fits where.
If the property is empty, it also allows your agent full access for property showings as soon as enquiries come in.
