What Bacchus Marsh tenants want

10 TipsBacchus Marsh investors commonly ask, what do I need to do to get top dollar for my investment property, without spending a fortune?  So our team at Professionals Arbee Real Estate thought we’d share some of the most commonly asked questions we get from prospective tenants looking for a new Bacchus Marsh home.

1 – Does the house have heating and/or cooling?  Not surprisingly, most tenants want to live comfortably.  While it will obviously cost you money to add heating or cooling to your Bacchus Marsh investment home, it will also add value and make your home far more attractive to tenants.

2 – Is it fully fenced?  Many tenants come with children or pets that require a secure yard.  If your fence needs repairing, this may be all you need to do to hook in a great young family or professional couple with pets.

3 – Does it have a dishwasher?  Just as tenants like to live comfortable, it should come as no surprise that most also enjoy the convenience of a dishwasher.

4 – Will the owners allow pets?  Now this one won’t cost you a cent, but it may be a deal-breaker for certain tenants.  Before you completely rule out any furry friends occupying your Bacchus Marsh investment home, we urge you to consider each application on its merits.  There are plenty of first class tenants who refuse to move without their family pet or furry companion.  It’s worthwhile keeping an open mind until all reference checks have been done.  And don’t forget, additional clauses can always be added to your lease agreement to ensure their pet won’t affect the ongoing value of your home.
