Top 4 tips to keep tenants happy

As a landlord, one of the most important things is having long term, reliable tenants. Once you've found trustworthy tenants, you'll want to make sure they're happy and that they stick around.

1. On-going maintenance

It’s always a good idea to make sure your house is well maintained and that everything is up to scratch.

Not only does on-going maintenance keep tenants on-side, it also helps landlords keep tabs on their investment, to make sure everything is working the way it should and even plan for future upgrades.

2. Renovations

If your investment needs some attention or a full makeover, then it may be a good idea to put a plan in place.

Renovations or even basic upgrades could change the types of tenants you have and/or increase the rent. So, if you've been putting off that paint job, now maybe a good time to get it going.

3. Communication

It’s always important to respond to tenants requests or enquiries in a timely manner.

This consistent level of service and communication helps raise your loyalty and improves or builds relationships.

4. Goodwill

Being friendly, helpful, and cooperative and having a good attitude can really help improve relationships with tenants and helps you establish a good reputation.
