What do tenants look for? Each will have their own requirements but this does not mean most expensive or cheapest. Think about where people would like to live…
Where in your town has a special appeal? If you are in a commuter belt, where has good transport links? Where are the good schools for young families? Asking yourself these questions might sound over simplistic, but they are probably the most important aspect of a successful buy-to-let investment.
Instead of imagining whether you would like to live in your investment property, put yourself in the shoes of your target tenant.
If they are young professionals, they might appreciate a more contemporary style with some modern touches.
If it is a family they will have plenty of their own belongings and need a blank canvas. Remember that allowing tenants to make their mark on a property, such as painting, or adding pictures or taking out unwanted furniture makes it feel more like home – these tenants will stay for longer, which is great news for a landlord.
