Vancouver investment properties often compete with other rental properties in the same neighborhoods. To attract reliable tenants who pay on time and take care of your property, it’s important to make your property stand out. Here are a few key considerations:

Make Your Listing Compelling

Creating a compelling listing is important for attracting tenants to your property. With many prospective tenants searching online, your listing could be the key to enticing them for a viewing. A strong listing should feature an attention grabbing title and descriptive, informative, and concise copy. Include relevant, easy-to-find contact information. Leverage your letting agent’s expertise and local market knowledge to create an effective marketing campaign.

Use Professional Photographs

The best property advertisements use high-quality, professional photos. Attractive photos add visual interest and help prospective tenants envision themselves in the space. Highlight your property with its best images displayed first. Consider refreshing current images or taking new ones to keep your listing competitive. Your agent can help make the home look as appealing as possible and reassess photos if the property has been on the market for a while.

Market at the Right Place and Time

Ensure your property is listed on major portals like apartments.com and your agent’s website. Increase exposure by advertising in local press and sharing the listing on social media. Putting a ‘To Let’ sign outside the property can also attract potential tenants passing by.

Highlight Top Priorities for Tenants

Tenants typically look for properties in good locations, safe neighborhoods, close to work, local amenities, and within the area of good schools. Highlight the strengths of your property’s location to target the most target demographic. For example, a safe suburban home appeals to families, while a studio apartment near a University might suit college students.

Showcase Desired Features

Tenants pay attention to features like a modern bathroom and kitchen, storage facilities, a washer/dryer, and parking. Ensure these areas look their best by making cosmetic changes and carrying out general maintenance and repairs. 

Boost Value with Add-Ons

To attract quality tenants, consider adding special extras and incentives like a security system, extra storage space, built-in wardrobes, stainless steel appliances, or air conditioning. These investments can improve your property’s value and rental yield over time.

By enhancing your property’s appeal, you can attract a wider pool of tenants and improve your chances of letting to happy tenants for longer.
