Seasonal Maintenance: How To Prepare and Market Your Rental Property This Spring

As the lighter nights roll in and the snowdrops start to bloom, Spring is the perfect opportunity for rental property owners, or those thinking of renting their property, to rejuvenate their properties and attract new tenants. We caught up with Lisa England, Senior Property Manager at Gilson Gray, to get her top tips.

Inspect and Repair

Begin by arranging an inspection of your property for any damage caused by winter weather. Check the roof, gutters, windows, doors, and siding for any signs of wear and tear. Repair any leaks, cracks, or damage to ensure that the property is in optimal condition for your next tenant.

Landscaping and Curb Appeal

Consider enhancing your property’s curb appeal by sprucing up the landscaping. Trim overgrown bushes and trees, plant colorful flowers, and remember to cut the grass. A well-maintained exterior creates both a positive first and last impression!

Deep Clean

Spring is the perfect time for a deep clean of your rental property. Clean carpets, scrub floors, wipe down walls, and dust all surfaces. Pay special attention to commonly overlooked areas such as skirting boards, light fixtures, and doorframes. A clean and fresh-smelling property is more inviting to prospective tenants – why not get a Spring bouquet for the kitchen or dining room?

Update Interiors

Consider making minor upgrades to the interior of your property. Fresh paint, updated fixtures, and modern appliances can enhance the overall appeal and value of the property. Focus on areas that are most likely to catch the eye of potential renters, such as the kitchen and bathrooms.

Market Effectively

Once your home is ready for the market, we will arrange for professional photography to be taken to showcase your rental property in its best light. Our in-house marketing team will advertise and promote your property to potential tenants through the use of online listings and social media posts, highlighting any unique features, amenities, and proximity to local attractions.

It’s always important to stay on top of essential maintenance tasks, and Gilson Gray is here to assist you on your landlord journey. If you’re seeking advice or information for long-term success as a landlord, do not hesitate to get in touch with a member of our dedicated Lettings team here.
