Upgrading and renting: How can I make my property more attractive to tenants?

In times of high construction costs and interest rates, you are exactly right as a landlord, because the demand for real estate for rent is growing. At the same time, it is still worthwhile to make the house or apartment particularly attractive. On the one hand you counteract vacancies, on the other hand you increase the living quality of your tenants and achieve an ideal rent. In this article, we tell you which measures are worthwhile in detail.

Energy efficiency as the main criterion

No tenant wants to spend hundreds of euros a month on heating costs. If you replace an outdated heating system with a solar thermal system or heat pump, your tenants will save cash – and you will make a decisive contribution to environmental protection. Good to know: According to the Building Energy Act (GEG), you have to replace oil and gas heating systems that are more than 30 years old anyway, and from 2024 you may only install heating systems that use at least 65 percent renewable energy.

Also make sure that the property is well insulated. With energy renovation, you can renew the roof and facade insulation as well as the heating system, if necessary. Numerous subsidies exist for this purpose, which relieve you financially.

Barrier-free living gains relevance

Whether due to age or illness, numerous people are dependent on barrier-free housing. But unfortunately, these are far too rare. Design your property barrier-free, enable physically impaired people to live a carefree life. For example, install a level shower, wider doors or even an elevator. This allows you to reach a particularly large target group.

Increase the attractiveness of your property with smart home applications

The blinds can be operated by voice control, the windows and doors have sensors and there are smart thermostats on the radiators – what tenant would say “no” to this modern equipment? With intelligent systems, you increase living comfort and provide potential tenants with compelling reasons to choose your property.

A property to feel good

That the apartment is renovated before each new tenant is normal. However, do not limit yourself to wallpaper, but also check whether it’s time for a new floor. With modern laminate or high-quality parquet you will increase the attractiveness of your property. Does the house include a small front yard? Then it is worth removing weeds and planting new flowers. A new coat of paint on the facade will also give your property a fresh appearance. Even with these small means you increase not only the number of potential tenants, but also the value of the property.

In addition, marketing plays a crucial role. We will gladly support you and prepare a convincing exposé with high-quality photos. Feel free to contact us for a non-binding consultation – we look forward to hearing from you!
