The lettings market typically heats up in autumn, with landlords and tenants back off their holidays and ready to start the search for new renters/properties yet again. If you’re marketing some rental homes this season, showing off some snaps of it could see you win big! Read on to find out more…
5 Star rated Landlord Insurance provider Just Landlords loves autumn – it’s the season of cosiness and warmth, which can completely transform a rental property from empty and soulless to homely and snug. That’s why they’ve launched their exciting new #AutumnIsHere competition – a chance for you to show off how relaxing and inviting you’ve made a property now that the colder weather has arrived.
It can be difficult for landlords and letting agents to add trendy and quirky pieces to a property without over-personalising it. We all know that rental properties should be as neutral as possible when they’re on the market, in order to attract as many potential tenants as possible.
So how do you make a property stand out? Autumn is a great time to put a twist on the rentals you’re marketing by staging them for the season – and there doesn’t have to be any decorating involved.
Of course, it’s essential that renters can view a property and feel like they’ll be able to make themselves at home there, which often means as little décor as possible. But you can add some snug finishing touches to make a property stick in their minds and feel like home as soon as they step through the door.
Just Landlords has its top ideas for adding cosy autumnal style to a rental property this season:
Upgrade the cushions on the sofa by replacing them with printed wool options or even fluffy pillows – you’ll instantly make them feel like they can snuggle up on a cold winter’s night.
Add a thick, knitted throw to the master bedroom – this instantly transforms a space and no new bedding is required.
Light a seasonal candle with a pleasing scent – not only is this good for viewings to create a warm atmosphere, candles are also inoffensive ornaments for living spaces.
We hope you’re inspired to spruce up your rental properties this autumn! If you do transform a space, why not take before and after photos to enter into the Just Landlords competition?
