One of the requests that comes up quite a bit for me is helping adult children of people I know find rental properties. The process is often foreign to the parents and challenging for the future tenants as they have either never rented before, or never rented through a real estate agent.
Therefore I thought I’d ask our highly efficient and thorough Leasing Consultant Steph Topp to give me her “6 Topp Tips” for first time renters (though it probably applies to everyone). I hope that this is of use.
Once you have secured a rental property the next thing is to make sure you are fantastic tenants, so when you’re looking to rent in the future, finding a property is much easier. In my opinion a good tenant pays their rent on time and in full, keeps the property clean and tidy inside and out and is pleasant and reasonable to deal with. They also report maintenance items in a timely fashion so the property is well maintained and small issues don’t grow into big expensive issues for the landlord.
If you are looking for a rental you are welcome to call Steph Topp at our office on 9725 7444.
