If you are developing a property so as to earn rent from it, you should be careful to develop meet the expectations of potential tenants. In other words, you should consider who your target clientele is and what they need most. This is because, even before they ask about the house, they will be looking for the features that will make them pay the amount requested. Here are the things that a landlord who is looking to rent the house to a couple should be wary of.
Security and Privacy
Barely anyone will rent a house where there is no security. This is especially when you have a life to live and also a property to protect. Therefore, it is important for the landlord to be able to provide these to the tenants. Couples will have lots of property that belongs to them and children in most cases. The safety of the family is number one. Remember here we are not only referring to security from theft. The house generally, needs to have some security features such as floor that is not so smooth, staircases that care for the children and also proper installation of things like electricity and gas that could be dangerous if left within children’s reach.
Space and Comfort
A couple could have children or not. In the case where they have children, the couple will be looking for a spacious and comfortable house. The family being a growing institution should be provided with spacious rooms. Therefore, if you are targeting married couples, remember space will make them more comfortable. It is also necessary to consider the comfort of children. This could include a place to play so as to be able to enjoy the environment. Therefore a spacious playing ground will help a lot since the children will have an easy time playing. The parents will also have peace of mind if the playground is spacious enough.
Give Them Good Neighbours
Preferably, the couples will appreciate living in a space that is occupied by other couples. Don’t expect to use the extra space to house students and at the same time expect couples to stay. Students conduct is a times very different from couples conduct. These are people who might be having children too. Therefore, you should not be in a rush to take in students because you have a vacant room and schools are opening. Consider that the place has families and just keep it for families. In a case where you have a property that is vacant and you get offers first meet the person and try to identify if he will be suitable to live in your property and maintain the same peace that families want.
These are some of the factors as a landlord you would like to consider when developing a property targeting couples. Therefore, you should be ready to customise the property so that it is suitable for the couples and provide them with an environment they enjoy satisfaction from. This way, you will not have many vacant houses at a go. This is because there is the tranquillity needed by couples.
