How to keep residential tenants happy

It is known fact that it takes significant time and money to attract and retain good tenants. It just makes good business sense to strive for happy, long term tenants in your rental properties.

How can you attract the best tenants?

Below is a list of actions to maintain a great relationship with tenants:

Educating tenants when they first move in. They can’t follow the rules if they don’t know them.

Tenant screening check list

Be ready for them during the walk-through. When you do the rental home walk through with your new tenant, be sure you are handing over the keys to a property that they can be proud of. The condition of your rental determines the quality of your tenant.

Landlord Insurance for beginners

Stay on top of repairs. Nothing makes a tenant unhappier than when repairs aren’t taken care of in a timely manner.

Contacting your tenants the month after they move in. Ask them if everything is ok and make sure they know you’re available to them.

Send them a welcome letter. Let them know that you are glad to have them as tenants, and once again remind them how they can contact you in if there’s a problem.
